Matter Home -
The album Re-Creation is exactly that -- re-creating an experience
in music documenting the lives of the people involved and their
influences, noting the change and growth that happens when ideas
take flight and soar. Ideas first spoken without form, now made
solid as Matter.
Some songs have the viewpoint of the present, others from past
perspectives, all soaked and cured with the amazing twists of the
very gifted and philosophical people that were willing to take part
in making these songs, in turn, their songs. When music and lyrics
can be transferred from one mind to another with complete
understanding of their meaning, a true creative collaboration is
born. I thank you all for this.
We will always hope that anyone who listens to this album will feel
invited to apply this music to their own internal soundtrack.
Watching and listening to the birth of Slohemia and The
Bletchley Park Project triggered just this experience for me --
using the words and music as salve in my own healing process at a
time when I needed it, and more importantly, needed my friends.
In no way were any of us attempting to re-invent the wheel. On the
contrary, only enjoying the process of what momentum, friendship and
solid writing can become. Never compromising where it all ends,
never forgetting where it came from.
