by David Franklin

While David is primarily a singer-songwriter, this is a collection of avant garde pieces which easily flow from this composer; there are many "found sounds" (vacuum cleaners, baby's cries, computer printers) and strange rhythms in this collection.

Album Notes
original liner notes:
for many years i was afraid to simply allow the music which comes out of me naturally to be expressed. although i\'ve enjoyed my years as a singer-songwriter, i often felt this particular path was more of a conscious choice because it was a category i could fit into. yeah, i\'ll own it, this was a marketing decision.
many of the songs in this collection don\'t easily fit into any category. in the end, however, this is a collection of music which i believe is complete. included are many elements which haven\'t always made it into my previous projects: experimentation, humor, playfulness and anger, along with a good old-fashioned dose of existential angst. this is me and much of who i am.

editorial notes:
this is a collection of avant garde pieces which often flow from this composer; there are many found sounds (vacuum cleaners, baby\'s cries, computer printers) and rhythms in this experimental and amazing collection of songs. note this recording was entirely conceived, written, recorded, produced and performed by david, with the exception of the found sounds (which were of course, found) and a flute and whistle part...

David Franklin has been on a musical journey for forty years. A musician from age nine, he vowed to never let a day of his life go by without playing an instrument: a commitment he still keeps to this day. He supported himself in college as a drummer and later became a keyboardist in a New York City rock band, playing such clubs as CBGB’s.

In 1990, he walked across the country with a group of people inspired to bring awareness to environmental issues; he carried his guitar along the way and performed from Santa Monica pier to the base of the Statue of Liberty. Eventually settling in California, he became a husband, parent and psychotherapist while releasing three albums as a singer-songwriter.

David’s music comes from the heart and from a deep desire to communicate. He believes that music is about play, healing and ultimately, connection.
