ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It all begins with a trigger, external or internal, something seen, heard, or felt, that brings a shift in perspective and results in music. Most of these pieces have a hidden story. Some are holiday snaps – a trip to Edinburgh, a holiday cottage in Devon, a rain-soaked stay in Newbury. Others refer to people – the near-angelic gentleness of a fellow musician, the untimely death of someone close to me. Some may appear to be scratching at something deeper, while others are just a bit of fun. Musical allusions include No.1 of Bach’s 48 preludes and fugues, pipe bands, prog rock with a tinge of Mozart, Negro spirituals and quirky guitar techniques. Any musician gives something of himself away as he writes and plays. So, if through the wood and the steel you feel you catch a glimpse of my perspective, remember that the beauty of instrumental music is that it leaves you free to discover your own.

Tout commence par un déclic, externe ou interne, quelque chose vu, entendu ou ressenti, qui amène un changement de perspective avant de se transformer en musique. La plupart de ces morceaux cachent une histoire. Certains sont comme des photos de vacances – un passage à Edimbourg, un cottage dans le Devon, un séjour pluvieux à Newbury. D’autres font référence à des personnes – la gentillesse quasi-angélique d’un collègue musicien, le décès prématuré d’un proche. Si, par moments, la musique semble effleurer quelque chose de plus profond, à d’autres elle est purement jouissive. Parmi les allusions musicales, on retrouvera le premier des 48 préludes et fugues de Bach, les cornemuses écossaises, le rock progressif teinté de Mozart, les Negro spirituals, le tout agrémenté de techniques déjantées de guitare. Tout musicien se révèle, bon gré mal gré, dans sa façon d’écrire et de jouer. Si jamais, au travers du bois et de l’acier, vous croyez cerner ma perspective, souvenez-vous que l’intérêt de la musique instrumentale, c’est de vous laisser libre de découvrir la vôtre.
