ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by a Rembrandt masterpiece, this haunting work speaks to emotional depth-perception.

"Stained in rich tones, grander than any framed vision, things raging within me sing life into sound."


Rembrandt van Rijn's The Storm On the Sea of Galilee is based upon the Biblical story of Jesus and his twelve disciples in a fishing boat when a sudden storm arose, causing the disciples to panic; Jesus calmed the waves after telling the disciples that they should have no fear, but rather, faith.

"Rembrandt painted himself into the picture. He's the only figure who is looking directly at the viewer. I thought that was an interesting touch," says Lavin.

Also interesting to Lavin was the discovery, during her research about the painting, that Rembrandt was thought to be stereo blind--a condition which rendered him unable to see the world three-dimensionally.

"I thought a lot of parallels could be drawn between someone who has no depth perception visually and one who has no emotional depth perception," says Lavin.

Rembrandt's only seascape, the painting was stolen from the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum in Boston in 1990.

"This song is also my personal appeal to whoever has the painting," explains Lavin. "I hope they will return it. So many people need to see this beautiful work." Lavin says she believes she herself will see it someday.

As for her collaborator, Bill Bracken, Lavin says, "Bill is an absolute delight to work with. He very kindly revisited his acoustic roots for me in crafting a lovely guitar solo." A Billboard Magazine chart-topper, Bracken has recorded with Gary Cherone and boasts an impressive live performance history, according to Lavin. Bracken's enthusiasm and unconstrained creativity were brought into play in an eerie effect he created during the taping session by strumming the strings on the guitar's headstock, says Lavin.

"It's a fantastically haunting sound," she says. "It's the perfect touch for this song."

The single will be featured on her upcoming album, The Miscellanea Project. For more info, please visit www.cinzilavin.com
