As always - read below or jump right into the music here:
by Sacha Hoedemaker from the Netherlands
After the first ripple, the domino effect continues.
"In the Netherlands, I remember being in awe when 'Domino Day' would arrive. Between the 1998 and 2009, an enormous team of builders set out to set a new record in the Guiness Book of World Records. It was huge. Four and a half million dominos huge.
With incredible precision, these builders created an entire spectacle that would have me sit and watch for hours.
I was ten when it first aired, and that was when I realized, that small individual pieces could become something so much larger than the sum of its parts. It's all about the correct placement in time and space. All you can do then, is stay positive and hope for the best. In the end, the effort was always more than worth it.
That feeling is something I've tried to capture in my second piece, Domino!
2. "Burst Of life"
by Wiebe and Eva Van De Poll from the Netherlands.
Wiebe decided to make an album inspired by the natural underwater world.
"When I am underwater the motion and patterns of the waves and the sea life trigger musical patterns and melodies in my head. The main instruments on the album are piano and cello.
“Burst Of life is inspired by the way small fish tend to burst into your face in clouds when you are snorkelling above the reef”
Wiebe Boorsma is a music composer. He has written and produced music for (inter)national filmproductions, including: film, TV-series, TV commercials, filmtrailers, documentaries, music libraries, museum exhibitions and theatre productions.

3. "Look What You Made Me Do (Taylor Swift Cover)"
by OKSYO from Spain
OKSYO is a moniker of a Spanish composer Jordi Fornies, being a new project to release his own take on popular songs.
Felted piano sound creates a peaceful and minimal version of the original.
by André Goyvaerts from Ireland
Petrichor - "a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather."
"Petrichor" is a peaceful song that André wrote while reflecting upon difficulty with depression. The relevance of Petrichor is of the moment he felt, through music, he was beginning to feel some release and calmness after a long dry spell.
It was a peaceful moment where he felt something again.
by Riccardo Pietri from Italy
This is a new contemporary solo piano tune from Italian pianist and composer Riccardo Pietri
6. "Landscapes of the Mind"
by GéNIA from the UK
GéNIA’s composition ‘Landscapes of the Mind’ was inspired by her frequent travels to France, a country of great history and culture.
As a nation, French people are known for their ability to fight openly for their rights, voicing their demands clearly. During her visits, GéNIA was a witness to numerous demonstrations and political actions.
Interpreting this as the observer, the composer could not help but notice the changed atmosphere in such an otherwise harmonious and peaceful surroundings.
‘Landscapes of the Mind’ is one of the tracks of GéNIA forthcoming album ‘Voyages français’.
by ADA from Germany
‘Lioness‘ is a children’s song, dedicated to Ada's two-year old daughter — it’s a fleeting, ephemeral testament of the love for this beautiful human being.
Unlike most tracks on ‘Impromptu’ — out March 4 on Silent Green Records — ‘Lioness‘ was developed over a longer period of time.
