A Blueprint for Life

The album “A Blueprint for Life” presents five acoustic guitar-centered works that are richly layered in both sound and symbolism. The titles offer poetic yet practical renderings of the architectural details found in a home: Open Window, Hidden Lines, Spiral Staircase, Hearth, and Elevations. Musically, the sound from the guitars range from shiny and brilliant to dark and velvety, exploring timbres and moods with moments of density then space. While the first four tracks engage the listener by weaving complex melodic patterns, the final piece, Elevations, brings the foundation of these structures in time to simple, singular guitar notes plucked gently over ambient layers, lightly introduced in the other tracks, but now quite present. Energetically, a blueprint refers to the design of one’s life plan and purpose. This home houses music from my heart and soul.

New Ages Notes Review


Mayan Trails

MAYAN TRAILS is a nylon string solo guitar piece that evokes a rich and layered ambiance. “Michelle’s performance on Mayan Trails holds that mysterious vibe, whilst the minor chord structures and notes add a deeper flavour to the track which is simply bathed in the moment of a trip to perhaps an ancient temple. The harmonics and subtle flow of this composition create a piece that whilst tranquil, manifests a compelling musical narrative to thoroughly enjoy.”
Steve Sheppard, One World Music


Walk at Dusk

WITHIN THIS NIGHT is a solo instrumental piece performed on a nylon string guitar. It presents a mysterious ambiance and evolves into a more rapid paced middle section after the slow, measured opening.
"...it is a piece so beautiful and soothing that I truly believe she can now be crowned Queen of the Ambient Zone" Review by Steve Sheppard


Walk at Dusk

WALK AT DUSK  This solo acoustic guitar piece sparkles with an effortless energy and excitement, from the shiny steel strings to the round, thick bass notes and smooth tones.
Composed, performed, recorded and published by Michelle Qureshi, Music as Metaphor. Mastered at Stoneman Studios.
