Welcome to my personal collection of music CD's that I have performed and recorded on the Yamaha Tyros Workstation.
I have also included some work I did on the Yamaha PSR-740. I will add the new work I do as I go along...so stop back again soon!


A Very Barre Christmas - I


COVER

BACK

This was the first Holiday CD to be produced by ThunderStudios (November 22, 2002). These 19 songs were performed on the Yamaha PSR-740. The CD is playful and not very polished in its production. It contains a mix of classic and whimsical Holiday Music.

A Very Barre Christmas - II


COVER

BACK

Here is the follow-up CD for the 2003 Holiday Season (November 10, 2003). Again, the songs were performed on the Yamaha PSR-740. 15 new songs! This CD is also playful in its approach but the production has matured somewhat. It contains a mix of classic and unusually arranged Holiday Music.

A Very Barre Christmas - III


COVER

BACK

The third holiday release was also produced in November (2004) and is the first holiday CD to be performed on the Yamaha Tyros Workstation. These 15 songs have higher quality sound and smoother production than the first two holiday volumes. It contains songs not previously released on volumes I or II

Lapopessa


COVER

BACK

This is the first recording of Allen M. Dion's original music from his musical Lapopessa. These songs were performed on the Yamaha PSR-740. These 5 songs are a sampling of the 20-22 songs that appear in the musical itself. Production quality is good but a much more professional release of this music was made in 2004.

Lapopessa the Music


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

This is the definitive collection of the principle music from Allen M. Dion's Lapopessa musical. Six original songs appear on this CD with smooth production and full orchestrations. All selections were performed on the Yamaha Tyros Workstation.

Dear Prudence, I am the walrus because across the universe she's leaving home with Lucy in the sky with diamonds while golden slumbers are nowhere, man. Good night.


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

This is the first of three Beatle CD's to be produced by ThunderStudios. This collection contains 10 songs with full (albeit very unusual) orchestrations performed on the Yamaha Tyros Workstation. The CD begins with an acoustical and light rendition of Across the Universe and concludes with a totally over-the-top orchestration of Good Night. Overall production is good but some songs loosely follow the actual melody/tempo. May 2004.


NOTE: This CD originally had this picture on the cover.

Main Street Northbridge


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

The second Beatle-oriented CD produced by ThunderStudios contains 15 more Beatle favorites. Again, the orchestrations are unusual and don't always relate to the original sound and presentation of the music. Let's say, it's unique. This production is far more reaching in its scope and includes both Beatle songs as well as songs composed by John Lennon. All songs were performed on the Yamaha Tyros Workstation. January 2005.

Beatles with Abandon


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

The third "Beatle CD" produced by ThunderStudios contains 16 more Beatle songs. True to my style, the orchestrations are not what you might expect. This is the best production of the three Beatle CD's and my personal favorite. It contains music by the Beatles as well as songs composed by John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono individually. All songs were performed on the Yamaha Tyros Workstation. Released January 2005.

The Wedding Album


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

Here is a "easy listening" production of music for serious ceremonies. No unusual orchestrations here. Most selections could be classified as "religious songs," perhaps. Contains one original composition by Allen M. Dion. Full, rich orchestrations and true to the original style versions of classic and contemporary ceremonial music for a range of occasions (not just weddings).These songs were originally recorded on the Yamaha PSR-740 but re-mastered through the Yamaha Tyros Workstation. Released January 2005.

Big Band Sampler


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

This CD contains 14 songs from the Big Band Era (or close to it). The songs are presented in a true-to-form manner with that unique brass and brash Big Band sound. Good quality production. Another January 2005 release. This collection is dedicated to my father, Normand O. Dion.

Country 60's


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

Don't let the title fool you. NONE of these songs were ever intended to be presented as country songs. This is a really fun CD and one of my personal favorites. 13 hits from the sixties are included, all recorded on the Yamaha Tyros Workstation in January 2005. Sound and production very good.

The Broadway CD


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

Here is a collection of some of Broadway hits from the past. Production is good with an occasional miss. 17 songs are included with such diverse choices as Over at the Frankenstein Place from the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Superstar from Jesus Christ Superstar. This is a real potpourri of Broadway songs...you may or may not find a favorite here. A February 2005 release.

The TV CD


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

This is by far the silliest ThunderStudios production ever containing 13 songs from television's past. The songs are presented in a fairly straightforward manner with a good measure of whimsey thrown into the mix. From Felix the Cat to Star Trek, it's a fun ride through some of TV's past musical offerings. Very good production and presentation. A February 2005 release.

Beatles Midi


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

This CD is a departure from the usual ThunderStudios fare. This is a compilation of Beatle midi files processed through the Yamaha Tyros Workstation. Technically precise, these songs recreate the originals quite faithfully (usually) but lack a "human" touch (being digitally manipulated and produced).

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

I've taken my eight favorite songs from this musical and put them into this small tribute CD. On this production, I have added a few songs with multi-track recordings--something new, actually. Nothing terribly serious about this presentation...I had fun with this one!

BACK

INSIDE

The Ultimate ThunderStudios tribute CD to John Lennon & Yoko Ono.
Includes songs from hard-to-find sheet music for Yoko compositions such as: Kiss Kiss Kiss, Never Say Goodbye, My Man and I'm Moving on...as well as classics from John Lennon.
These songs are arranged, mixed and transitioned with an ear for John & Yoko's "HeartPlay" concept.

Yoko Ono


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

The Yoko Ono Tribute CD.
Includes songs from Yoko's It's Alright (I See Rainbows) album as well as remixed versions of Kiss Kiss Kiss, Never Say Goodbye and I'm Moving On which appear on the preceding "John & Yoko" CD. This CD was arranged, mixed and recorded with a real "Yoko-esque" quality to it...and
...I personally regard this as my best CD to date.

Mango Dog


COVER

BACK

INSIDE

A ThunderStudios First! My debut CD containing 10 Original Songs...
All the songs on this CD were created on May 5th, 2005 and subsequent tracks added a few days later. A wide range of styles and rhythms are presented in this eclectic electronic endeavor...appropriately subtitled: "An Experimental Audion Production," this is not a highly polished work--the experimental nature of the tracks is apparent throughout...but the music may grow on you if you give it a chance. My personal favorite: Clever Disguise. Hopefully this is only the first of my original releases...check back soon!
