Some of you might be familiar with Mojo the Cat. Most of you probably are not. And the whole idea of Catcore may seem absurd to many, but there is something strangely intoxicating with the music of this remarkable feline. I’ve beed a fan of Mojo the Cat since first being introduced to her unique music through FAWM. But I have to say that when Mojo decided to team up with Pop Mythology‘s founder & editor Daniel (more commonly known on the ‘Net as The Pop Mythologist) to help him with his medical treatment costs, I knew this was something special.
Yesterday was Rememberance Day here in Canada. At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month we pause for two minutes of silence to remember all those who have sacrificed themselves in times of war so that we may enjoy our freedom. From the Boar War at the turn of the 20th Century to the current conflict against ISIS in Syria & Iraq, our Armed forces have fought to uphold the principals of our country & to keep our way of life safe from tyranny & terror.
On November 11, 2007 I recorded an improvisation to commemorate Rememberance Day. I share it with you today, so that we keep the sacrifice of our armed forces in our minds – even after Remembrance Day has passed. Please enjoy the song & show your gratitude to our Veterans & our currently serving members of the Armed Forces.
On the heals of the album Blood Moon Wolf Head, Jim Demos has released a new track via his solo project Hellenica. A Gentle Fire is a mellow, almost introspective track. It begins with a simple chord arpeggio which is the rhythmic foundation of the track. A rumbling bass synth enters accompanied by a passionate drum track & suddenly the listener is taken on a journey. It seems as if we are travelling through time, through some ancient ruins found on the hellenic coast. There is a sense a majesty & ancient power here – as if those Greek heroes & gods of legend look down upon us now: inciting us to rise above our mundane lives.
Jim has had a varied career as a musician. He has toured Canada, the US & parts of Europe with a number of bands including Ham & National Monument. He grew up in Winnipeg & was a high profile member of that city’s avant-garde music scene in the late nineties & early two thousands. He now lives & works in Montreal & has integrated himself into that city’s diverse musical culture.
Yesterday was spent performing & recording a new video project inspired by the greatly misunderstood German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The Good Four takes its name from an aphorism presented in Nietzsche’s 1881 book entittled The Dawn. The video is over an hour & a half long & features songs from across Candle’s repitoire as well as a number of brand new improvisations. The performance was captured via webcam.
Post production work will commence on the video shortly. However, here is a sneek peak at the new video. This brand new song is called Alhambra At Dusk & is a live improvisation recorded during The Good Four sessions.
