with all of the projects i have on the go, i tend to hop around instrumentally quite a bit. some days it’s all keyboards, sometimes it’s a mix of keyboards and guitars. or guitar on its own. other times it’s bass. or bass synth. or bass synths with keyboards. and just to get complicated, let’s throw in baritone.
you get the picture.
the point is what am i chasing?
exploding silver dreams.
‘well,’ you say, ‘clearly the acid got to this fellow cause now he’s going on about exploding silver dreams.’
if i were looking for something as simple as putting all the notes in the right order, i could strap on my guitar and get out there and join a journey cover band.
(just kidding. i reaaaaallly hate journey. not as much as bon jovi, but they are a close second.)
but im not looking to do that.
i’m chasing something. something i cannot explain.
transcendent moments where sound transforms me.
transforms the spaces we occupy.
and since i don’t know what to call it, i call it exploding silver dreams.
now, if you’ll excuse me, i have to get out my wire snippers and do some restringing on my 6 string electric oscillation machine.
(that’s a fancy way of saying ‘guitar’.)
