Destiny (for Victor Jay Solotoff)

Destiny is a song dedicated to my dear friend Victor Jay Solotoff who passed away on May 21st, 2019. Victor was passionate about life, music, learning, teaching, and friendships.

I was working on the song when I heard of his passing, and it came as a shock to my system and I was struck by sadness. Memories of Victor Jay (Qu’est-ce) flooded my brain as I finished the recording and I hope he knows his spirit is still strong and alive down here on Earth.

Destiny features Brian Eno inspired ambient analog synths, shoegazer inspired electric guitars, and orchestral percussion. A hybrid cinematic mixture of elements that propels the piece forward to a dramatic ending.


All sales from the song will be sent to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in Victor’s honor.
