Music

A native of the universe residing in San Francisco California, vocalist/musician/composer Alabastra made a decision to remain underground for many years. With the continued praise for her music from many high profile music industry executives, musicians, and performers, she finally made the decision to bring her music to the forefront for all music lovers to enjoy her music. 
​​
Alabastra is not your typical artist. Her songs span a wide variety of genres from jazz, blues, rock, to classical, and more. Her songs are inspired from deep within her subconscious, with the true inspiration emerging from cosmic boundaries. “I truly feel a direct connection with the sun and the moon. There are more answers out there than I find on this earth”, says Alabastra.

​These are a few covers for grabs that I recorded a while back, just for the fun of it. Knock yourself out.

Matteo Carcassi. 1796 – 1853

Melancholia Album

Recording

Practically all tracks are rough mixes. So you may experience disruptions, skips and delays. They are all recorded in real time at my house off-the-cuff (impromptu) and burned to CD right after each session. There were no second takes at anytime even with singing, so you may experience some flat notes. All instruments and arrangements are organic and without any computer influence.

Prelude of Bach in Dm BWV 999 1720

J.S. Bach 1685 -1750 was a magnificent Baroque-era Composer. Legends has it that loved the lute but did not find the right Lute player to work with, so he settled for the piano.

Prelude was originally written for the lute in the key of Cm. It was transposed to the key of Dm and arranged for the Guitar by Maestro Andres Segovia. Although this piece is frequently played on keyboard instruments it was in fact originally for the lute. the JP Kellner manuscript bearing the title “Prelude” in C moll pour la Lute di J.S.B.

This song was for born in a moment of epiphany. I arranged it in a contrapuntal style with counterpoints in mind. Ritarded (ritardando) tempo was necessary for the purpose of the poetry. I hope you enjoy this 18th century music Manuscript.

This song came about because I happened to really like the lyrics. I ventured out once again to a new adventure. I layered 3 octaves of guitar using the same chord. It sounds very interesting. I had no rehearsal prior to recording. I Also created lead guitar for it which I find heals the song. This project got interrupted and I hope to finish some day. I have many for this orchestral ideas for this, it not the complete version.

Melancholia in Eb is a jazz Composition in ‘Ritartando’ (with a Slacking in tempo). It was created at a turning point in my life where I had to take control of my life in every way, Mentally, Spiritually, and Emotionally and I NEVER LOOKED BACK!
