Memory’s End: Childhood

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in electronica, Life, Music, piano, rock/jazz/blues fusion

I’m fascinated about how our memory works, as we reach back to our childhood. Some memories can be triggered by a more generic label or name that evokes memories in the further, harder to reach past. Memories are our personal history that we rewrite all the time. And we colour them accordingly.

Although I was born in Montreal, I was too young to have any solid memories (only what my mother told me), as I was three years old when we returned to the west. Lakeside Drive is an evocative label, a very common name for streets by water bodies. It is a label that evokes for me a feeling and mood, that seems to help reach back further than my conscious mind will allow.

And here is the music:

Am I going crazy with my drum kits? You bet!

I record one electronic one first, and sometimes add a traditional type that I mix up together.

I play the keyboard (piano, or electric piano) against those crazy beats to see what I come up.

Haven’t been back to Australia since 2001, when Renate and I spent three months there before moving from Calgary to Vancouver. Would love to go back. Hence the name. A bit of a wish dream to fulfill.

Hope you enjoy!
