PRH/Prh has composed and produced numerous original Neo Eclectic* works in the “inn-house” Concert series and “Collection” series that are currently available on most Internet music sites including iTunes, Facebook, Amazon, Napster, Rhapsody, Jango, Deezer etc… The first in the series “eclectic” was released in 2004.
Dubbed “music for the 21st Century” by one reviewer [iTunes Review 2007], the music offers a different approach to composition based on breakthroughs in computer technology and spawning a new emerging musical genre: Neo Eclectic* [*See Prh Article on “Hot New Emerging Musical Genre: Neo Eclectic” [Oct 1”, 2012 FB and Jango] reprinted in “Composer Comments”.
the vistas open to writers by the invention of the printing

these new capacities allow for the liberal mixtures and interweaving,
cross culturally, of diverse musical genres, styles, voicings,
textures and shadings into multi-dimensional combinations

is so much a part of our everyday lives, so are we comfortable
in listening to music that is hallmarked by a fusion of such
diverse musical elements as this compositional approach allows.
It is this fusion that provides a listener a unique musical
experience akin to a sonic odyssey, where one is offered a
veritable cornucopia of musical presentations, cohesively,
in a sitting. Consistent with this approach each CD released
is arranged so as to offer, collectively, a concert experience
at a time and place of the listeners choosing. It is for this
reason that the series is entitled inn-house Concert.
"Breaks through every known musical genre boundary." (2013)
"The music is for a neo audience, listeners who wnat their senses touched for the length of an average commercial track, and who respond to harmonies and inventions highly evocative and melodic." (iTunes review, 2013)
