David Arkenstone

California's David Arkenstone blends global, cinematic, and rock elements into his new age sonic tapestries. A music lover since the age of ten, when he moved to California from Chicago, Arkenstone has immersed himself in all kinds of music, and played keyboard and guitar in numerous bands from his youth.

It was when he discovered the lush arrangements and exotic approach of Kitaro that Arkenstone ventured into new age music. The increasing synergy between computer technology and musical instruments also inspired him; most of his works were created partly or entirely on his Macintosh along with synthesizers and guitars. This blend of electro-acoustic textures is showcased on albums like 1998's Book of Days, and works from his other project, Troika. Arkenstone returned in mid-2000 with Caravan of Light. Frontier followed a year later. In 2002, Arkenstone had two Grammy nominations and several Billboard new age smash hits under his belt. The legacy continued with the releases of Sketches From An American Journey in June 2002 and Atlantis in September 2004. ~ Heather Phares

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life! Don't stop reading this is freaky. But if you read this and ignore it you will have bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When your done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big on the screen. This is so creepy because it actually works

@Abelhawk, his name is Arkenstone and no, he did not make The Hobbit's music score. Howard Shore composed the music and wrote the music as well.

I adore Howard Shore and he did a wonderful job on the movie soundtrack. I listen to it all the time.

I do know most of The Lord of the Ring's history and Hobbit history... Ask me anything about it and I'll tell you what you ask.

When an interview with actor Michael Caine revealed that he liked chillout music, I had no idea what that was. I searched it on iTunes,
and David's Chillout Lounge was the first item featured. What I heard was awesome and relaxing, an immediate buy. So David, MAKE MORE!
You got me hooked, so now I have a Pandora station just for Chillout.

Ok, I'm setting the record strait. Arkenstone is not his real last name, and tolkin died 1973.
Now, think about this.
3 rings for the elves (not elfs), 7 for the dwarf lords, 9 for mortal men doomed to die, and 1 ring to rule them all. 3,7,1,9 (your looking at 1973 backward)
Gods providance.. . .

Music is great but to all those who think he was born with that last name are naive. Of corse he changed it. I'm just wondering how he got away with it.

What if he named the arkenstone after himself because he thought it fit perfectly in the story?

The piper's tune swirls to Celtic play entwined around every sound. against shadows arising the tops of burial mounds where in unrest they lay to humor and glee; as the day's light with a banshee's arrival quickly flees. given way beneath a starry coalesce, blanketing every wakened foul hidden deep in their woven nest. as phantoms delight to dark of night. calling on those familiars next to be named ending the spirits joyful game. by withdraw when set to right, beneath tomorrow's piercing flame.

The song was written by a New Zealander folk singer and his rendition I find better than Arkenstone's . Don't get me wrong I've been following Arkenstone for years but the composer of this song has a voice more suited I think.

I wonder what his real surname was??? The Arkenstone as we now is a part of the Hobbit...... . I know one of his fav writers is Tolkien...

Theirs is a peppy whimsical sound that beckons you to dance with the night. where as loranna mckennitte's version is haunting and it just pulls you through the looking glass. calling you to see what's on the other side.
