SHINE LIKE THE STARS
Various Artists
Waiting World Records - March 2014



Michael Peck of Waiting World Records honors the memory of a close family friend by curating this memorial compilation. 12-year-old Taylor Scout Smith passed on earlier this year; you can read two articles about this remarkable young lady here and here.

The album features 18 artists from 7 nations, including Steve Brand, Shane Morris, Jack Hertz, Annemarie Borg and Jaja. Greg M comments:

"It's a great honor to be included in this collection. On reading Michael's moving account of Taylor's life and passing, I was irresistibly reminded of the wonderful book Mister God, This is Anna. Like Anna, Taylor was someone I would like to have met, and this was reflected in the title of my piece.

"Musically, Mister God, This is Taylor is another example of "fragmentary composition": all of its parts - for synths, guitars, ocarinas and bird whistle - were composed and recorded, before being arranged into a structure. I first used this approach on another requiem piece, Like a Riven Cloud from The Separate Ones.

"Many thanks to Michael for including me in this collection, and kudos to all involved!"
