Album Notes
Paracletus represents a new kind of classical music: Digitally Created Classical Music.
Avoiding the Cinematic Sound Track approach, this is traditional classical music yet composed & created using a new media - Digital Tools. Just as detailed & human, yet written onto a new, digital canvass.

No automation was used to create this concerto. Every note was created individually as though the instruments were in our own hands. Thus, it took 4 1/2 years to create.

Paracletus, from Greek, means “Spirit”, or “Spirited,” and is dedicated to my Greek and spirited wife, Lori.

Today’s art is created with more variety, innovation and creativity than ever before. It transcends mediums, cultures and nations. This CD represents 40 years of professional musicianship & orchestral composition experience, in marriage to 12 years of digital music creation using the absolute best tools guided by human hands and hearts.

Paracletus started as an idea in 2005, on the day of James and Lori Leahy’s 20th anniversary. He heard the most beautiful rendition of a violin concerto and thought: “There must be a way to create this quality of expression using musical tools, along with my experience as a musician and orchestral composer.” Thus began a 12 year quest for the best digital music creation tools that could capture the spark, warmth and human emotion that swells the heart with feeling when accomplished musicians captures and transmits them to the strings of their instruments and then to the hearts of their listeners.

Though orchestral composers themselves may not play those instruments, centuries of evidence proves that they can express those emotions as notes onto paper in music scores. Thus, in modern times there exist new forms of ‘paper and pen’ that allow today’s composers to do the same thing on a computer that composers have long done on paper. The only thing that has changed is the medium. This has happened in painting, drawing, modern art, music, and now classical music.

The reality is that it takes as long to create classical music on computer as it does on paper. This song represents 4 ½ years of painstaking attention to creative detail, hundreds of renditions, and a new sub-genre of classical music: Digitally Created Classical Music - Just as detailed and human, yet written onto a new, digital canvass. The end result is the same: Original classical music to stir the heart and warm the soul.
