Pop vocal music with a classical style background of cello and piano


Rin Eric was born in Redlands, the navel orange capital, on the edge of the Mojave Desert in Southern California. For a few early years he lived in Hollywood, where onto the school playground wafted the sounds of Les McCann's rehearsals next door. In the fifth grade, relegated to the top bunk because his younger brother had fallen out, he tuned into a classical radio station to soothe him to sleep without tossing. Most effective was the 'weaving' music of J.S. Bach. Rin fell in love with classical music and his life has become dedicated to being a contemporary contrapuntal master of modern polyphony (with the occasional jazz chord thrown in to give it true modern spice).

Rin moved to Santa Cruz, California in 1973 to be a part of the vibrant musical scene. As a versatile singer-songwriter, performer and teacher he is a natural in many styles, always working on classical composition in the background. While he has taught himself many orchestral instruments (no brass), his true voice is the cello.

'Make The Music Play' was the last song that he wrote in Redlands before moving to Santa Cruz. He wrote it in the front seat of a car, as he slept in a car that night. It's about moving from the desert to the city (Hollywood) to pursue music, and then finding that music in Santa Cruz. It was re-fashioned as a cello sonata (#5); this version has the song layered over the cello and piano. Enjoy!
