  • Colin Pombo – Yoga Poses

    Kind Selekta digital boutique writes: With a swing comparable to an early down tempo Marc de Clive Lowe joint, Colin Pombo’s “Yoga Poses” leads you through an open minded meditation session of well colored chord patterns swirling around thoughtfully poised rhythmic snaps.

  • New Composition: Lost in Chinatown

    A few weeks ago I was wandering the streets of San Francisco’s Chinatown late at night – this ambient/atmospheric piece captures some of the mystery of that evening.

    It was just about past my bedtime so I wrote a little pop song before falling asleep. One of my goals as a composer is to create beautiful music. If I am able to add a little bit more beauty to someone’s day when they listen to one of my songs, I feel I have […]

  • New Composition – Serenity

    I wrote a new composition tonight. It’s really slow and quite peaceful, but has quite a bit of sadness. I guess I was inspired by reading the first part of the graphic novel “The Dream Hunters” (the Sandman series) written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano. I’ve made a little recording of my […]
