Website Pictorial

Posted on Updated on

(Jacqueline) I’ve been wanting to help out my husband on his blog for some time. I finally made time for it! Yay and this morning we decided to have a mini photo shoot (guess where these shots were taken?) for the blog.

We had a little drizzle earlier but thankfully it stopped while we were “shooting.” Even Michael cooperated–he shovelled dirt while we were busy on the shoot (now, washing his play clothes is a different story of course).

Anyway, we’re hoping to do more on the blog in 2014 so stay tuned!

4 New Wedding Compositions

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been wanting to share these fairly new compositions I made for my sister-in-law, Debbie and my friend Ian. They got married this past September.

I wrote “I’ve Been Waiting For” as an engagement song for the couple. My wife and I had fun recording this. I could probably say this is an “experimental” song with regards to the technology I used in composing and recording it. This was my first recording using Garageband in my iPad… pretty “historic” time for me considering I’ve been used to using pretty bulky recording studios, a few microphones, etc. I’m stoked having a recording device at my fingertips… Anyway, enough talk about technology. Here, is the song,

“I’ve Been Waiting For.”

The next 3 songs were played by a string quartet during the wedding:

Bridal March
Song For Debbie

Processional Song
“The Marriage”

Recessional Song
Marching Onward

Thanks for listening. Until next time!

“Gift of Life”

Posted on Updated on

Don’t you just love spring time? Budding new life around you, happy chirping birds, fresh crisp air and everything else that’s nice. I know it’s already fall but, the miracle growing in my wife’s womb beckons back to spring time!

Our baby boy has been a mover in the womb. We know for sure he loves listening to music–he seems to stop and listen whenever we put headphones on my wife’s belly. He’s been listening to Mozart, Vivaldi & Brahms for the past two months now.

The beginning of new life is so heart-warming and inspiring! We are very eager to meet our baby boy in person, hold him in our arms, smell him, love him.

In eager anticipation of Michael Emilson, my wife and I wrote a song for him called “Gift of Life” — another song to add to his regular playlist.



GIFT OF LIFE
Words by Jacqueline Remo
Composed by Emil Remo

For the first time I felt your fluttering kicks
And I think to myself what miracle this is
A life within me is forming and growing
What gift from our God a new life such as this

Chorus
The miracle of life has changed me from within
More love I have to give as long as I do live
I’ll protect you forever, forsake you never
(For) this miracle of life has changed me forever

For the first time I held you in my arms
The smell of your skin is innocence and love
The world may be cruel but you’ll always be loved
By your father and mother and most by God above

(REPEAT CHORUS)

You will always be a miracle
A gift from above

A New Beginning

Posted on Updated on

My wife and I just got back from a most wonderful trip to the Philippines. One of the highlights of the trip was the wedding of my wife’s sister, Heide to Abraham.

Abraham and Heide Villanueva

Inspired by their love for each other, I composed a song for them called “A New Beginning” (arranged for guitar, flute and clarinet). The couple decided to use the song as Heide’s bridal March. We played the song live during the wedding: with Gerard Marquez on guitar, Sebastian Icasiano on clarinet and myself on flute. In this soundclip however, I recorded the clarinet part using the flute as well.

L-R: Ian Icasiano, Gerard Marquez and Emil Remo having fun after the wedding.

The entourage on the other hand marched to the tune of another one of my original songs, “Epiphany”. I originally composed this song for two hands–one on guitar and the other on piano. This song is composed of two movements (the 2nd movement begins at 2:33): the 1st is a more mellow movement that leads up to the 2nd–the actual “epiphany”.

What a lovely couple Abraham and Heide are and what a wonderful wedding they had… brought back fond memories of our own wedding from 3 years ago. Congratulations & best wishes Abraham & Heide!

**On another note, the beautiful cake pictured above was made by my sister-in-law, Kristine Joy. For more information, please visit her blog JoyOfPastries.
