Mystery Morning Muse: Sunday 7/27/14
This song inexplicably entered my head this morning..
“Can you hear me? Can you hear me running? Can you hear me calling you?”
Mike & The Mechanics – Silent running – YouTube.
“Music of the Spheres?”
At the climax of this morning’s dreaming, I am walking through a street scene which seems equally urban and rural. Someone is walking next to me and we are both vocalizing a surreal / ethereal “music” which sounds like a combination of Elizabeth Frazer’s (of the Cocteau Twins) voice and Brian Eno’s ambient synth sounds.
As I “sing” this amazing sound all I am doing is opening my mouth wide and this awesome sound just pours forth. I am slowly walking with my arms outstretched, raising them gently towards the sky. The energy and emotionality of the sound emanating from within is unimaginably powerful and I think I might weep.
Then I awake…
I actually shot some of the footage for this video. Over the years several close friends of mine repeatedly shot film and video footage of ED HALL – one of my all time favorite bands. They produced several albums (below) but disbanded, reforming later in a completely new guise as PONG. See links below to past Ed Hall Reunion shows and more!
