David Minasian has been involved with progressive music projects over the years notably producing and directing DVDs for the well known UK Symphonic prog band Camel. He is the producer and director of over 60 film and DVD projects, including Camel's highly acclaimed concert DVD "Coming of Age". David kept a low profile concerning his own music until the release of his symphonic prog album in 2010, "Random Acts of Beauty". In 2009 David, with the encouragement of Andy Latimer, recorded his new album "Random Acts of Beauty", with David on keyboards (grand piano, harpsichord, mellotron, moog, and orchestrations), 12 string acoustic guitars, bass, and lead vocals. He was joined by his son Justin on electric lead and rhythm guitars, and a special guest artist who appears as guitarist on "Masquerade", Andy Latimer himself.
David describes the album as, "lush, symphonic, melancholic, melodic, classically-tinged progressive rock". Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues, David's initial muse and inspiration, even commented on this stating, "the guitar solo sound is fabulous and it's very Moody... I'm sure it will be a great album for David."
The music focuses on lush keyboard orchestrations, soaring melodies and extended length compositions with an emphasis on classically influenced symphonic prog rock. David's music is inspired by the likes of early Genesis, Yes, Jethro Tull, melodic Pink Floyd, early King Crimson, Renaissance, Strawbs, Barclay James Harvest as a four piece, and of course Camel. There's a strong prominence of mellotron in addition to harpsichord, which adds a medieval flavour. On top of all this, the soaring lead work of Justin Minasian and Andy Latimer on "Random Acts of Beauty" is the icing on the cake to one of the most innovative artists of recent years: David Minasian..
