ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Glenn Kingsley Mortimer

I am a avid fan of Ambient Music. It's atmostpheric minmulism compels me to listen. Someone once descibed Ambient Music as something you can intensley listen to or just enjoy in the background. As the composer, I've listened deeply to what I've recorded on this CD. I belive that music is like taking a journey. It is a spirtual experience. Ulysses is my journey. It chronicles my challenges with clinical depression and how I came out of it. Through creative expression, prayer and meditation I belive I have been released from the bondage of depression and anxiety. Join me on this journey.


About Mustard Seed Studio

I consider myself blessed that I was able to make a living playing music for 27 years. One of the benifits of being a full time musicians is my home recording studio. In the past 27 years technology has advanced rapidly. The gear I have in my studio today surrpases the best recoding studios the bands I played in paid a fortune to hire when I started out.

Although I have writen and recorded Ambient Music for decades, it was not until recently I finaly had the oportunity to dedicate myself to this project. I began recoding parts for this album three years ago. The nine tracks that ended up on Ulysses where choosen out of over 30 tracks recorded.

Most of the music was recoded at my studio in tropical Cairns, in the far north of Australia


About the butterfly

There are many stories of heroes taking a journey to return with new insights and gifts for their community. One of the oldest is Homers "Iliad", the story of "The Odyssey". This story is adapted by James Joyce in his novel, "Ulysses", hence the title and all the pictures of the Ulysses butterfly.

Commonly found around my hometown of Cairns, the Ulysses butterfly is a beautiful creature. It represents two important things to me;

Firstly, the transformation process, the new life. I love how the struggle of the butterfly emerging from the cocoon has a purpose, pumping blood into its wings, bringing them to their full usefulness. Help a butterfly from its cocoon, and it may never fly.

Secondly, the principle of the 'butterfly effect'. That being, when a butterfly flaps its wings in one part of the World it effects the weather pattern on the opposite side of the planet. The theory being, that even the smallest of actions can have massive effect. Just watch the gentle nature of a buterfly and the effect it has on you.


In concluding

"Artists are magical helpers. Evoking symbols and motifs that connect us to our deeper selves, they can help us along the heroic journey of our own lives. The artist is meant to put the objects of this world together in such a way that through them you will experience that light, that radiance which is the light of our consciousness and which all things both hide and, when properly looked upon, reveal. The hero journey is one of the universal patterns through which that radiance shows brightly. What I think is that a good life is one hero journey after another. Over and over again, you are called to the realm of adventure, you are called to new horizons. Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There's always the possibility of a fiasco. But there's also the possibility of bliss." - Joseph Campbell
