optimized for night vision

think of it like it's a painting, that moves
and sounds cool - turned up 
after dark

assembled in photoshop, logic audio & final cut
remix - pat metheny w/anna maria jopek & ron allen
(are you going with me)

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind 'drones'



it was a dream I had
3 nights ago


giant drones flying over forest fires
only they were just fanning the flames
taking pictures like photo-ops
for those flying them below
at a safe distance


waking at 3am ... wow - pitch black
youtube search - "drone, forest fire HD"
finding this stuff - sleeping a few more hours

music - need music - next morning
thinking jazz, LA circa 1980-82
with a female voice preferably
right - warsaw - what's this?

some vintage metheny and a quiet session 
with polish vocalist anna maria jopek
 (that went totally under the radar)
  I added some flute samples
and some simple EQ/automation

it's the sound of angels 
hovering over trippy rhythms
blended w/the chaos

THE FUNERAL


why is it that we rejoice at a birth 
and grieve at a funeral ... 
It is because we are not the person involved

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind 'the funeral'

no one knew ... what was in the will
except his lawyer

he's worth billions, a basket case - pill popper widow (write-off) 
2 smart sons/bros (on the make) who have never worked a day 
one (estranged) evil uncle (hot mistress) and well ... Jacob
the oldest brother - not the sharpest knife in the drawer 
and thus the VW ... that he washes every day
long story/doesn't matter
anticipating his tidy sum
right


could go any number of ways
depending on who does what
to whom

in this undisclosed interim


(ok my interpretation)

HUNGER GAMES


this is the moment 
when we must come together to save this planet
let us resolve that we will not leave our children a world 
where the oceans rise and famine spreads 
and terrible storms devastate our lands

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind 'hunger games'

thanks for getting this far
this one is 2 years old
I found it trolling the bottom of my youtube channel

I don't think I ever posted it
no record of it in my blog that goes back ages
I listened to it and thought "wow - it's not bad"
resurrecting it and now officially here
