I’ve taken many flights of fancy. Too many some might say. But considering the stress and chaos of life, aka ” the daily grind “, I always enjoy, even look forward to and regularly book my own flights. I usually book through the use of nonlyrical musical passages of indiscriminate genres. During twenty or so years working as a music therapist and time spent in various playing and teaching venues, I’ve also been privileged to be a passenger on other peoples flights.
I think that our perceptual lives are led around our senses by what we see. Everything flows from the seeing. I extend to you an invitation to see what it’s like to give the ears a turn at leading. Attached is an mp3 file (unnamed), that I request you listen to and make a “mind movie” from. Kinda like making a movie with the music inspiring the story rather than the music made to fit the story. Your movie can be anything from a phrase to a parable to a pheeling. It can be an impression from a single listen, or a fully developed idea after wrapping up in the music like a blankee. The idea is to take time to take a breath and allow your imagination out to play. Remember? That fun part of you that’s always getting shut down by ‘THE GRIND ‘.
About the music : All music is original. Some pieces are in song form, maybe a story waiting for you to tell in your own words? Others may be no more than an improvised passage on which you may wanna riff, or rage. It’s your ‘mindmovie’. The reason for no title is simply ……. no influence. Entirely YOUR flight of fancy. I’ll tell you the title when I put up the next piece of musi.c in about a week.
Post your mindmovie before reading any comments, ( once again no influence), and we’ll see what the world looks like from a sound perspective
hope you enjoy your flight,
