New Music: Suspended Animotion
Each piece has an accompanying text:
(1) The Grand Opening
The Grand Opening
Hey, what’s on sale?
Run, Run, Run,
I can see them: 1/2 price!
Amazing. C’mon man, let’s partake!!!
(2) Solace Sweet
So at last the meeting we hardly hoped for
and were somewhat in awe of, has occurred
and we are able to sail on solemn seas
past loafs of orangy melting sauces neat
and leave this hell hole and wish them well
and so end our journeys in solace sweet.
(3) Sounds of Breezes
Floating free, far from home
where the homo sapiens roam
Sounds of breezes by the sea
Wondering what it all meant to me.
(4) Smoke Rises
Let’s keep it on the road!
Hands on the wheel: 10 and 2
You’re going to…
Smoke rises from the fields
Fearless leaders are nothing
more than an assembly of misplaced electrons
And now those very electrons have been electrified
by the electronate.
In the beating heart of every piano, is a soul, just waiting to be released!
New music, piano based….
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!
Some old cowboy somewhere is reminiscing about the old days. Here is some music and a few words to help him along:
