Listen to Eyes of Heaven by Medwyn Goodall:
Medwyn Goodall began composing original songs as a teen, earning local notoriety with his band Trax; in the years to follow, he learned to play a vast range of instruments, including mandolin, piano, drums, harp, flute, glockenspiel, panpipes, vibraphone, and synthesizer, and cut his first album at age 26.
Medwyn Goodall is a prolific recorder, having recorded over 75 albums. He also topped the UK music charts twice and sold over three million albums. His first album was Emergence (1987), published by New World Music. His early albums were published also by Oreade Music. He also started MG Music in 2003. This is a record label which specializes in New Age music.
Many of Goodall’s recent releases have been under the alias Midori. He explains that he chose this alias so he “could record projects that were more ethnic, eastern, or produced for the healing arts” without confusing fans of his other music. However, there are also other musical artists using or known by the name Midori (such as the jazz-punk combo Midori and the Japanese violinist Midori Goto).
One of Goodall’s tracks, “Free Spirit” from his album Meditation & Visualization (2001) features the same Spectrasonics “Distorted Reality” sample featured in the “Summer Forest” music in the video game Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, as composed by Stewart Copeland.
