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.


American Prelude

AMERICAN PRELUDE is a solo acoustic guitar piece that weaves beautiful, sweeping arpeggios throughout, contrasted by cascading waterfalls of plucked notes. My title and album art reflect the diversity of the American landscape. It draws from my experiences seeing this country, from the deserts of Arizona to the pine forests of Maine, but starting with my Indiana upbringing along the shores of Lake Michigan.
Composed, performed and recorded by Michelle Qureshi. Mastered by Tom Eaton.  Published by Music as Metaphor.

Stream Sage

“Once again Michelle Qureshi has produced a more than delicious album of peaceful, enjoyable guitar solo pieces to enchant and relax, possibly naming the album after the herb Sage, noted for its sweet and yet savory flavour, which could be likened to the subtleness of this series of compositions.”
Janet Mawdesley, Blue Wolf Reviews
