ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes


ARTIST, ROBERT BORNN

Robert Bornn, a master psychoacoustician, plays the synthesizer on the Chill! album. The synth lends itself to Robert’s original, improvisational expressions. Each track is recorded in one sitting and undertaken with the wild sparkle and courage of his musical convictions.

Robert created electronic music innovations in the 60s. He now brings a lifetime of acoustic creativity and musical sensibility to his electronic music on the synthesizer. He delights us by weaving his original acoustic ideas into innovative electronic beats and melodies. With spontaneity and style he combines his choice of electronic tracks with the brilliance of his own grooves.

Whether soloing on the synth or joined on other albums with his partner, Laura Worth’s vocals, he demonstrates his mastery of the call-and-response motif that is so integral to the West African and Congolese music and rhythms he has embraced throughout his musical career.

Robert first learned percussion and hand drumming in the 50s on the subways and streets of New York City. He was later influenced by the West Coast Congolese and West-African master drummers and instrumentalists he played with. Creating original percussion music for more than five decades, he also founded DIAJ (Drummers in a Jam) for San Francisco Bay Area drummers and dancers in the early 90s.

Robert wrote, directed, produced and performed in Sweet California (1997), an African-inspired performance of original and traditional music and dance, including his original ballet, California Suite (1997); and The World Is You (2001), an original World Beat music and dance performance. He was the founding director of DIAJ performing group and producer of the DIAJ CD, Pangaea: Old World, New Visions (1998), also featuring Laura and the late Ma Boukaka, Congolese American entertainer, teacher, and inspiration for generations of drummers.

In 2003 he founded SeaDrift Media Productions to produce and distribute his film, art, and music. Robert is featured playing Xylimba and hand drums on his album, Ocean's Edge-Spirit's Journey, which he also directed, filmed, and produced as a non-violent, nature art film on DVD (2004).

Robert and Laura wrote, produced, and performed in Lights of the Sound, a multi-media sound-driven light show and performance event, directed by Robert in collaboration with other community-based artists, on Vashon Island in December, 2004.

In 2005 Robert recorded his improvisational Discovery Suite on piano for Here and Now, the second in his CD/film series, Ebb and Flow. In 2008 he released his third nature art film in that evocative series, the prescient Bird Dreams, available on his Seadrift Media Productions channel on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YB-IQvcDp54. Also find his 2017 music videos for his singles, Chill! and 432.4 Hz., on YouTube at the SMP channel.

In 2009 Robert produced the 2-CD album, Mouyami, including his featured improvisational performances with Ma Boukaka and Laura.

In 2013 Robert's partner, Laura joined him again to produce the album, Inhale!

Robert and Laura continue to perform at various community events around Puget Sound, including the Vashon Island Music Festival and Hempfest.
