(All songs composed, performed, engineered & produced by A.A. Augustine)
A few words about the music for the show Around what feels like a thousand years ago, in a VERY different life before this one, I was a full-time musician, engineer/producer and record label owner. I've been playing guitar and various the instruments since I was 7 and attempting to write my own music since I was around 12. The songs didn't get even marginally good until I was in my mid-twenties, or at least, what you'll hear of it. And since I needed music for the show well, why not use this back-catalog of material I'm sitting on. I have hundreds of songs just waiting to be pillaged for the show. So, that's what I did. Well, kinda-sorta... as I actually started writing again for the show and now have dozens more. I hope to eventually get my entire catalog of music posted to my Soundcloud.com page whether it's for the show or not. The song below is the theme song for the show ("Mitty's Theme" Discovering WNY). It's simply an ode to the European immigrants that settled WNY. Stylistically, think Europe early last century. It was composed to honor of all the men and women who graced the shores of this country and slowly made their way into WNY to help build this region into the place it is today! I envisioned a wide-eyed immigrant named "Mitty" and the hope that he must have felt as he began to build his dream here, in his new home.
