Album Notes
Dear listener; this record I wanted to do for a long time -- I've had very fun cutting and pasting and composing, taking a rest from my chores as a surreal artist (hence the name Dalírium) and live Varieté pianist... Please let me tell you a little about the tracks! The Happy Machine is something of a summary; three quirky, happy little danceable songs made with the most odd little samples, including bagpipes... Starfield might bring your mind to a Sci-Fi movie -- beware of the space monsters! Raindrops is a live piano meditation, giving us a rest from all joyful hopping and twisting, a rest that will be sorely needed before Banjo Schlurp, a wild dance accompanied by suction cups, strange whispers and I Won't Even Tell What. The swingy Sci-Fi Rag I originally made with more electronic sounds, I kept the name but replaced them with something more earthy and fleshy. The little 7/4 Song goes in this rare rhythm; count to seven and invent new moves! On The Brink of Insanity I did while feeling so, you know, when life goes so fantastically weird that you might as well shout and laugh and jump about it... I thought both of Zorba the Greek and Hot Butter when I did this, beginning slowly but accelerating... We also do a less neat Menuetto -- the original is from "Songbook for Anna Magdalena Bach", It might be written by J. S. Bach but could as well be by Mrs. Anna herself, we don't really know. I wonder what they'd think about my version. I also wonder what Scott Joplin (the King of Ragtime) would think about my version of his Crush Collision March: My live electric piano won't march in a straight line at all! -- and it is soon joined by an unruly parade of genres and borrowed sounds. Last but not least, I give you a little live Blues named Snow, Mud and Asphalt, playing the distorted piano, an equally psychic guitar and whistling windy echoes, as a Thank You so much and Goodbye for now. -- Welcome to my musical world! :) J.C.
