It’s been about a month, three posts, two pieces of music and nine different mind movies. I guess the universality of music as a language lies in the fact that all who listen hear it correctly even when several people hear the same thing and then report it completely differently, it’s fine. No disputes or contentious comments.I’m tempted to try and put the mindmovies in some kind of order and try to compose an instrumental opera, no such thing I think? (now watch the dodge)…. but it’s getting cold; my creative season is during warmer weather. Besides I got a bunch ‘o stuff to redo, rewrite, rearrange, rerecord, re.etc. That’ll be a good project for early spring. (and I’m out). How ’bout that for an artful dodge. I’ll continue to use the flight metaphor for lack of a different one presenting itself. And speaking of flights, #2 is called Mahasin. First heard the word I think in relation to Djinns and Raja’s etc. much later met someone with the name and blabla. Anyway its flight time again, So getcha self a chilled drink and sit for a minute.

Thank you everyone for visiting the site. I’ll post a new piece of music this week. I thought while we’re refueling , maybe you’d enjoy a little game of cloud ( in the sky ) watching, or a taste of fall foliage ooh’ing and aaah’ing. This’ll be like clearing the pallet between wine tastings. I’d thought that I maybe lost a step or two making cloud stuff. But not really. A little warmup and I saw circus elephants, a shark, rabbit, and a couple seals. All the stuff I kinda remember was up there when I use to look up more frequently. Flight#1 is titled The Rundown. I don’t have a mindmovie for this piece, more a feeling that I was moving faster than I felt comfortable. Wasn’t clear whether I was chasing something or something was chasing me. A ride on a ( merry )go round. Once again, thanks for visiting. Bring a friend along next time gjk

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,
