Commission Gordon

Earth Centered Wedding CD

You may be aware from reading the sleevenotes of Gordon's CDs, that he is often commissioned to write music for individuals.

The procedure includes much discussion about the person, place or event to be musically portrayed, so that Gordon is able to reflect the special characteristics mentioned within the music. The customer is then kept up to date with progress as the piece is developed, and can also choose the name for the resultant piece of music.

Some examples of privately commissioned tracks include "Kaz," written for a birthday and "John's Deckchair" to illustrate memories of happy holidays.

One extra special piece "Those who Bring Sunshine" was written on the occasion of the wedding of friends Geoff Olner and Cath Basilio. The tune was then recorded by Gordon as part of an exclusive 5 track CD called "Earth Centered" which was given to guests at the wedding, a unique and lasting memory of a special event.

A few years ago, Gordon undertook a commission from a gentleman who wanted a piece of music written for his wife's 40th birthday. Gordon collaborated with an old friend called Fay Goodman on the piece and things went very well.

The piece was very well received by two happy customers. Gordon said of Fay, "She is a joy to work with and I hope to work with her quite a bit in the future".
