Has it been over a year since I last posted?! Well, I shouldn’t be surprised. They say time flies when your having fun, and the past two years were the best of my life, performing and touring with the most amazing artist I’ve ever had the luck to meet, work and live with. Lucky with a capital L.
But now I’m back in another place I love. That’s right here.
I haven’t been totally devoid of my own work during my side projects; as a matter of fact, I’m pretty deep into and far along into the next CD “Ambient Energy”
Where does ambient energy come from?
Ambient energy is:
The creative process. The output of the soul.
Where does it come from? Why? Questions asked since as long as humans scratched out the first image on rock or beat on a log in rhythm.
The reflection of the universe as we know it, as we see it. So that maybe some one else may someday see it too.
I don’t know about anyone else, but for me it is a lie for me to think it comes from within, as if it’s special, (the word normally used to describe it is “talented”). I don’t know about anyone else, but any music that comes out of me is coming through me. Maybe talent is just the ability to channel that ambient energy from the universe to the ears of listeners- and that’s what music really is. Maybe. I don’t know.
It is a lie when an artist says “I do it only for myself”. They may not listen to criticism, but they do need to be heard. It is as natural as breathing to be heard by your fellow humans. Music without an audience is like singing in a vacuum. No ears, no point.
So I offer up a listen to anyone who will hear.
This is destined to be the opening track on the CD “Ambient Energy”. I hope it will put you in the place of solitude I always seek. The track is named Alberio, the name of a star 430 light years away, found in the constellation Cygnus. It is a beautiful name for a star, and a beautiful name for a song.
