Inside The Music Online
Dave's popular audio-visual Inside The Music Online music articles explain the inner workings of Stewart / Gaskin songs, including transcriptions of keyboard parts, vocal harmonies and guitar chords. Originally published online and now available as downloadable eBooks, the articles contain notation, audio clips, photos, extensive song and recording notes, musical insights and autobiographical details from the composer. Barbara Gaskin, guitarist Beren Matthews and sound engineer Ted Hayton (who has worked with the duo since 1982) also contribute comments.
Inside The Music Online began in 2009 with a deconstruction of the Stewart / Gaskin song 'Jupiter Rising'. The series resumed in 2020 with a new collection of songs from the duo's Star Clocks album, along with a lavish deconstruction of the epic 'New Jerusalem' containing drum parts and notes by Gavin Harrison. Beren Matthews also contributed guitar videos. The 2020 articles are now available in Inside The Music Volume 3, which includes a hitherto unpublished article on 'Ride the High Atlantic Wind'. A fascinating, engagingly written glimpse into the unique musical mind of one of the UK's most respected keyboardists and composers.
