|Genesis of a Dream|
Genesis of a Dream: Writing and recording music has been a life long dream of mine, now, with the release of my second album, it has become a reality. Visit www.soundclick.com/davidgduke for track info and previews.
When I decided on the title Genesis of a Dream for my second CD, I decided to use cover art that reflected memories from my childhood, it just seemed appropriate for this project. More detail on this will come in the cover art section of this chapter.

Dance of the Elements – The elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, celebrated in an instrumental, orchestral arrangement.
Debbie's Nocturne – A fun mix of instrumental sounds dedicated to a great friend.
Genesis of a Dream – Focusing heavily on piano and guitar, my instruments, this track makes a great show starter.
Moonlight Sonata – Yes that Moonlight Sonata, of Beethoven fame, my rendition of this classic piano sonata recorded as homage to the master.
Garden Party – Composed after spending many a Friday and Saturday afternoon and into the night at the weekly gatherings once hosted by my friends John and Jackie.
The Mother Goddess - The mother of all creation the Mother Goddess, Mother Nature, celebrated in this fast paced track, a great one to dance sky clad to at your next gathering.
Meditations – Slowing things down for some quiet reflections. Track focuses heavily on piano and strings.
Winds of Time – the winds of time ever blowing, ever changing. I wanted to compose a track that focused a bit on the wind instruments.
Temple of Aphrodite – Fun track that celebrates Aphrodite, the Goddess of lust, passion, and desire.
Eternal Friendship – Some friendships are so strong they last for eternity, even beyond death and rebirth.
The Poetress (For Rene) – After hearing some of the recordings from the Eye of the Storm CD poet Rene Reyes indicated that she would like to put her poetry over one of my tracks, this piece, originally titled For Rene was what I composed for her to use.
Springtime Reflections – Anticipation of the coming spring. This track expounds a bit on the piano riffs I play in the Genesis of a Dream track.
Beautiful Muse – Solo piano composition written for the lady that inspired a spring fashion collection. I later released an orchestrated version of this track on the night Creature CD.
