Biography

BIO: Brian BecVar

Brian BecVar is a multi-faceted artist who has explored both the worlds of music and the visual arts to communicate a very sensual style of storytelling through song and film. His first two cinematic creations, "Where Secrets Lie" and "Mirrors," are films in which the elements of musical underscore and visual movement play an equally important part in creating and telling a story. Exotic musical sounds and textures move in harmony with sensual images to massage and stimulate the viewer's imagination. The path that led Brian to the making of this film reveals his great love of diverse musical styles from around the world. Brian's musical experience in the early years was devoted to classical piano as well as original composition and song writing in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. During his college years at Duke University and Indiana University, Brian began to study and perform jazz, blues and latin music-studying with several great jazz and classical masters. One of those years of study was spent in Europe, where Brian performed a piano concerto with an orchestra on a tour across the continent and was exposed to music of many different cultures. Immediately after completing university study, Brian was hired to play piano in singer John Mellencamp's band, located in Bloomingtin, Indiana. Brian's work with Mellencamp was the first in a long list of concert tours with major recording artists in the 80's and 90's that led to travel throughout the USA, Europe, South America, Australia, Africa and Asia. During that time, Brian relocated his home base to Miami, New Year City and, finally, Los Angeles. Between 1978 and 2005, Brian toured, composed and recorded with Celine Dion, Michael Bolton, Kenny Loggins, Air Supply, John Anderson (Yes), Kitaro, Roberta Flack, Bobby Caldwell, Wild Cherry, Laura Branigan, Cheryl Lynn, and Tim Weisberg. His travel through these years exposed Brian to a very diverse array of ethnic musical styles. His songs were eventually recorded and released by Roberta Flack, John Mellencamp, Laura Branigan, Bobby Caldwell and Cheryl Lynn. During the late 90's, Brian began to focus his energies on his own original work--developing a state-of-the-art studio at his home in Los Angeles. In addition to building an extensive digital audio production studio, Brian began to study great films from different cultures. His interest in composing music for film led to numerous meetings with prominent film directors and composers. One notable experience occured over several days spent with director Oliver Stone and Japanese recording artist Kitaro at the orchestral recording sessions for the film, "Heaven and Earth," in Warner Bros. main sound stage. Over the next few years, Brian then scored four independent films, which were submitted and screened at film festivals around the world. Brian's focus and intention with film underscore has always been to contribute a sound and style that flows intimately with the visual action in telling the story. And his exposure to cultures in Asia, Europe, Latin Amerca and Africa led Brian to create exotic scores that graced the films with which he worked. In the year 2000, with the explosion of the internet and digital film making, Brian formed a company for creating and distributing his own music and films. He established Adagio Films, Inc. which is devoted to producing films of the highest integrity and artistic value--films which incorporate musical and cinematic styles from many diverse cultures and which inspire and enchant all those who experience them. With that in mind, Brian wrote, directed, and scored his first original film, "Where Secrets Lie," which was filmed on a beautiful, exotic island near the pacific coast of North America and is the first release from Adagio Films. Brian completed his second original cinematic work, entitled "Mirrors," which was filmed in the Califonia desert, and was released in 2002. Exotic musical undescore, natural lighting and a sensual film look have been high priorities in Brian's film making process. And the focus of his work will continue to be that of combining the elements of lush musical landscapes and fluid visual movement equally to tell a very human story.

verse1

As I awake and look out my window
I think of you and me
How do I know that you feel what I feel
That you can see what I can see

CHORUS

Save me tonight
From the lonely moonlight
I'm losing the fight

Save me tonight
I live for your light
Save me tonight

verse2

I'm just a girl who lives for the moment
When you put your hand in mine
I dream of the night you come to my window
And carry me off in your grand design

CHORUS

Save me tonight
From the lonely moonlight
I'm losing the fight

Save me tonight
I live for your light
Save me tonight

So give me a sign
That you could be mine

And there's nothing to hold onto

Save me tonight

VERSE1 As I lie here beside you
What I feel inside- do you feel it too?

But I feel it's something we won't want to miss

CHORUS1 So tell me why do I
Feel my heart beat this way
Tell me how do I
Find the right words to say

Can we find the one we've been dreaming of ?

B And I know that a young heart needs to grow
But I feel that where there is love it will show

CHORUS2 So tell me why do I
Feel my heart beat this way
Tell me how do I
Find the right words to say

Feel my heart ache this day
Tell me how do I
Let my heart lead the way

But I feel it's something we won't want to miss

Feel my heart ache this day

verse 1

My friends all say our love is through
And that I'll never find it with you
But I know that they are wrong
And I've got to be strong
'cause I wanna know what's right
Will you teach me tonight?

Until you take my hand and show me the way
I'll never know love

And that you might be afraid to try
But when I look into your eyes
I know your heart is wise
And I wanna know what's right
Will you teach me tonight?

Until you take my hand and show me the way
And I'll never know where love is
Until you let my heart into your home to stay
I'll never know love

Well I know that they are wrong
And I've got to be strong
'cause I wanna know what's right
Will you teach me tonight?

CHORUS (repeat)

Until you take my hand and show me the way
And I'll never know where love is
Until you let my heart into your home to stay
