2013 …IT’S AN INFINITE LIFE

GENERALLY SPEAKING, THE LIFE OF A SOLO ARTIST IS… ODD.   YOU RECEIVE INSPIRATION AT RANDOM, CREATE AT ALL KINDS OF BIZARRE HOURS, CRITIQUE YOUR WORK CONSTANTLY, QUESTION YOUR EXISTENCE AND CONVERSE WITH YOURSELF BECAUSE 99% OF THE TIME, YOU’RE ALONE!   NOT THAT ANY OF THIS IS REALLY THAT BAD, I’M A FIRM BELIEVER THAT ANY GOOD ART IS BORNE OF A STRUGGLE… BUT AT 10 YEARS SINCE MY FIRST SOLO RELEASE I’M LEFT WONDERING… WHAT NEXT? ANOTHER 50 YEARS OF POTTERING AROUND IN A STUDIO THINKING ‘yeeeah, that’s ok, but… but how could it be better?

I WENT TO SEE THE KRONOS QUARTET LAST WEEK, THERE DAVID HARRINGTON PARTED A QUOTE FROM HIS FORMER TEACHER… ‘The great thing about music, is that it can always be better‘   …YOU KNOW THAT FEELING?   MORE THAN A EUREKA MOMENT, LIKE THE FABRIC OF TIME AND SPACE IMPLODING IN YOUR BRAIN & CREATING A BLACK HOLE/WHITE ROOM/ANECHOIC CHAMBER OF TOTAL CLARITY.   I HAD THAT.   THEN.   BETTERMENT, REGARDLESS OF BORDERING ON O.C.D., IS HEALTHY, IT’S GREAT.

MY NEW ALBUM,  ‘It’s An Infinite Life‘ …IS BEGINNING TO MAKE SENSE NOW, 13 OR SO TRACKS OF BRUTAL CULLING AND ‘BETTERMENT’:

01   Isn’t This Exciting?
02   Lemon Brain
03   Tunnel Vision
04   Minus Times Infinity
05   Lichtung
06   A Constant Nothing
07   White Sighlence
08   Blood Flow Four AM
09   27 Bells Of Youth
10   Pareidolia (Redux)
11   …Two Fifty Greece
12   God Is Whatever You Want It To Be
13   But A Dot You Are 

…HMM, COULD PROBABLY BE BETTER.
