Rob McAllister’s Music Within Brings About Reverie

The Toronto composer releases a new single from his ambient neoclassical project.


Rob McAllister and Music Within are out to soothe thoughts and ease minds with the dream-like single Reverie — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Like watching the sun set upon a quiet hilltop on a summer night, Reverie is a tranquil, relaxing, and beautifully mellow composition. Featuring the arrangement of soft, gradual piano keystrokes adjoined with the alleviating reverb of the synthesizer, Reverie rounds out with warming strums of an electric guitar.

The resulting dreamy sound flows through ears with ease, settling in the crevices of minds, and instilling audiences with a sense of peace. “Within you, there’s a place of escape; a place to reflect, reminisce and wonder; a place that’s all your own,” he expresses. “I hope this music might offer an escape for those experiencing a difficult time right now.”

The single will be appearing on his upcoming album Finding Stillness II — a continuation of 2018’s Finding Stillness — which embodies the same calming, meditative atmosphere as its predecessor.

From his roots as a classically trained multi-instrumentalist, along with his experience as a modern classical composer, Toronto composer McAllister has developed a keen gift to create impassioned music which can speak to his audience’s souls without the use of words. His contributions as a TV and film score composer have only enriched his ability to connect even deeper with a listener’s emotions.
