About

7-time Grammy Award winner Paul Wertico, David Cain, and Larry Gray compose and orchestrate everything in real-time, melting acoustic and electronic sounds with new-tech and word-tech, in-sync with an inner muse that connects to the universe of possibilities, musically conversing to the point of sheer telepathy, and dreams realized as digital cinema. Their debut CD, SOUND PORTRAITS, won an Independent Music Award for “Best Live Performance Album” in 2014.

Reviewers have described their sound as “Awesome! A total trip! Amazing! Original and visionary music from original and visionary musicians, Wertico Cain and Gray sound like old friends finishing each other’s sentences, and these are very, very interesting sentences."

David Cain is a composer, performer and member of the award-winning improv trio, Wertico Cain & Gray. His latest album, MEDITATIONS, is the story of improvisational time capsules, moments of musical meditation. The spontaneous recordings were inspired by the memory of Cain’s composer-mentor, Dr. Roque Cordero. Cain says: “Roque taught me the importance of connecting to musical flow through daily improvisational practice, leading to idea development, orchestration... resulting in possibilities that might exist outside the usual boxes of melody, harmony, structure, and norms.”

Describing his piano improvisations as ‘meditations with the muse,’ David Cain brings together a lifetime of musical influences that ‘honor the past and welcome the future’. Before recording each improvisation, Cain would “ask the muse for inspiration and guidance.” The results: each improvisation creates its own atmosphere: elegiac and ecstatic, soulful and blithe…
