    People constantly ask me what kind of music I play. I never know how to answer. What would you call it? http://youtu.be/sA4FZ2_6XTc

    That... That is amazing. Love the performance, but I have no idea what style to call it.

    Well, I'd never be accepted as a columnist for Rolling Stone magazine, but IMO, in the '90s that would've been classified as New Age.

    Way cool stuff by the way.

    Very beautiful and very reminiscent of what Michael Manring and Jonas Hellborg did in the 90s.

    It can be called anything you want.
    New age if you want to appeal to hipsters.
    Post jazz if you want to be signed by ECM.
    Electric trad if you want to get an article in National Geographic.

    Actually, it's music. Let people name it what they want.
    And bump.

    The most important thing is that it is great, so don't let this brief attempt put any sort of a damper on that.

    It's "cinematic soundscape thunk". That's the official name of that kind of music. ;)

    I concur. :cool:

    Not to mention Patrick O'Hearn. :meh:

    It's great stuff, Grant. You have a very distinctive and accomplished voice on the instrument.

    It's so refreshing to discover an excellent musician...who actually follows his muse. I hope you keep pursuing it and developing it... :bassist:

    Patrick O'Hearn actually came to mind for me as well. Him mixed with a little bit of William Orbit and... Enigma.

    I think they call it soundscape. One of the guys from the show "The Office: Joel played this genre
