Medwyn Goodall (born in 1961) is a composer and musician mostly associated with the New Age genre. He was borninYorkshire, England. He lives with his wife Wendy in Cornwall, England. According to Allmusic, "Goodall begancomposingoriginal songs as a teen, earning local notoriety with his band Trax; in the years to follow, he learned toplay a vast range ofinstruments, including mandolin, piano, drums, harp, flute, glockenspiel, panpipes, vibraphoneand synthesizer, and cut hisfirst album at age 26". [1] He is a prolific recorder, having recorded over 75 albums. Healso topped the UK music chartstwice and sold over three million albums. [2] His first album was Emergence (1987),published by New World Music. [3] Hisearly albums were published also by Oreade Music. Medwyn Goodall recentlystarted MG Music, [4] a record label whichspecializes in New Age music. He produced albums on which he arranged, performed, mixed and mastered every song, although his album, Om(2006),was produced together with Terry Oldfield and Om2 (2010), was produced together with Aroshanti. There isan updated listof his albums at MG Music [4] and at AllMusic [3] web sites. Many of Goodall's recent releases have been under the alias Midori. He explains that he chose this alias so he "couldrecordprojects that were more ethnic, eastern, or produced for the healing arts" without confusing fans of his othermusic. [5]However, there are also other musical artists using or known by the name Midori (such as the jazz-punkcombo Midori andthe Japanese violinist Midori Goto). One of Goodall's tracks, "Free Spirit" from his album Meditations and Visualisations (2001) features the sameSpectrasonics"Distorted Reality" sample featured in the "Summer Forest" music in the video game Spyro 2: Ripto'sRage!, as composed byStewart Copeland. « hide
