#playforChris7

Finally, #playforChris7 – is ready! Feel free to share it with your friends or communities.

This year we celebrate the Winter Solstice with Play For Chris 7!

There is also a new format that includes Words For Chris, where fans express themselves by words, memories and feelings about Chris.

Thank you to my Patrons for supporting me financially, for believing that what I do is worth it. Thank you to all my friends who encouraged me and shown me excitement in seeing the final result, as I was describing what I wanted to do.

Also thank you for subscribing to my YouTube channel!

We’ve made it again, something different but always special!

I See You

Remembering Chris Squire, six years upon his passing, I have made a cover video of “I See You”, from Yes’ debut album. This video was a suggestion from my dear Patron Doran Cox, who has especially supported this video by becoming a Super Bass Patron. I am also pleased to announce that there will be a follow-up bass-only version of this video!

If you would like to support my musical activities or even suggest a new video, please visit my Patreon page!

As always, thank you to all my Patrons! And… thank you for watching!

To The Moment

To The Moment – one of the beautiful songs rescued by Oliver Wakeman from the period before “Fly From Here”. Chris used the Ranney 8-String bass and I am so fortunate to be able to play it on the almost very same bass!

Montreux’s Theme (Rickenbacker) – isolated bass

Here is the Rickenbacker version of Montreux’s Theme, originally recorded in 2014.

There is another version on the Fender Jazz Bass, from which I will make an isolated version soon!

Play For Chris 8

Thank you so much to all of you present on the premiere of #playforchris8 and for the warmest reception and comments about this year’s edition. Of course thank you to all participants who made this edition, celebrating Chris and Alan and gave their best efforts and feelings expressed in their words and music. I hope you enjoy this year’s edition!

Koprivshtitsa festival 2022 – part 3

This is the 3rd edit of my recordings at the Koprivshtitsa festival of Bulgarian Folklore Art.

Besides vocal and instrumental ensembles with traditional dances and costumes, another genre of performance typical of the Bulgarian folklore is humour. What today would be called of “stand-up comedy” is, in fact, part of the authentic Bulgarian traditions. Although I am not able to understand enough of Bulgarian, I have recorded some of the humoresque performances.

Koprivshtitsa festival 2022 – part 2

This is the 2nd edit of my recordings at the Koprivshtitsa festival of Bulgarian Folklore Art.

More beautiful moments from the Koprivshtitsa festival this summer. I especially liked the little girl singing at the end.

Koprivshtitsa festival 2022 – part 1

This is the first edit of my recordings at the Koprivshtitsa festival of Bulgarian Folklore Art.

At the arrival to the festival, me and my gadulka teacher, Angel Dobrev, arrived at master luthier of gadulka Anton Antonov. Next there are some recordings of stage 6, with groups from the Sofia district. Hope you like it!

Sound Chaser (re-upload)

Continuing the re-upload of my Relayer album cover series in the loving memory of Alan and Chris. Sound Chaser, originally published in 2018. More will follow, including the isolated bass version of this video.

26th International Folk Festival Plovdiv 2022

From my recordings at the XXVI International Folklore Festival at Plovdiv’s Ancient Theatre. This is the closing day featuring groups from Bulgaria, Turkey and Georgia.

Ensemble Trakia at the 26th International Folk Festival Plovdiv 2022

This year I could finally take a vacation and part of my holiday was spent in Bulgaria, for my gadulka lessons, visiting friends and watch musical events. One of the highlights was to meet my friend bass player Stela Petrova and watch her perform with Ensemble Trakia at Plovdiv’s Ancient Theatre, closing the 26th International Folklore Festival. As you may notice, the double-bass could be clearly heard from the place I was standing. The Ensemble performed one short number and the mandatory closing piece where the audience and the remaining festival participants are invited to dance on stage with the ensemble.

The Gates of Delirium (iii) Soon – isolated bass

Dear friends, as promised, and after a period of vacation, I’m updating this website, starting with the entry of the isolated bass version of Soon, the third part of Gates of Delirium, which I had re uploaded last month. Thank you for being here!
