I’ve been spinning various ideas around my brain since late November. What to do for FAWM 2016? It’s a FAWM Leap Year so I know I have to do 14½ songs (I always enjoy making an ½ song). I’ve thought of doing a bunch of covers “in a Space Rock Style” with my own compositions to fill out the required 14½. I’ve also thought of just letting my muse lead me (like last year – which produced fabulous results). But the thought I’ve sort of centered on in the last couple of days (influenced no doubt by the passing of the late-great David Bowie) is to finally record my first Concept album – one I conceived of twenty years ago now. Bowie’s Space Oddity was one of the prime influences for the story line with a healthy helping of Pink Floyd’s Interstellar Overdrive (arguably the first Space Rock song) & Atom Heart Mother (a “back catalogue epic” that is rarely heard except by crazy Floydish Fans like me) adding musical flavour & structure.
The concept album is called Beyond The Bounds Of Time & consists of nine songs (many of which have free-form jam sections that keep changing every time I play them). I know the idea is “Feburary Album WRITING Month”, but I find that February & March is the only time I delve deep into the recording process. If I don’t record this album during FAWM, it’ll never get recorded – & it’s already waited twenty years. I plan on filling out the rest of my required songs with my usual “Live-To-Tape” Improvs as well as Collabs (I’m sure Johnny will inspire another song with his always lyrics comments).
Already the Vibrations are being felt across the universe. In places & moments throughout existence, the ten songs that make up the new album are being Experiænced by fans & new listeners alike. As we speak, there are souls who are listening to these new songs for the first time – reacting to the frequencies, tones & instrumentations. Their minds & bodies are in sync & are beginning to feel a shift. It is a chance to grow into something greater. A chance to Experiænce a deeper level – a deeper meaning. Something that is just below the surface – but something that we all can still sense.
