ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I created the Courage album and an improvisational dance movie by the same name --- created with appreciation and gratitude to my life-partner, Laura Worth, for helping to bring extraordinary beauty and grace to my in-the-moment music. Lithe, poignant, and full of hope and possibility, her heartfelt, expressive dance draws from our deep personal connection. Laura's new and ongoing physical challenge with mobility has emboldened her to create new dance expressions with courage. You can find the Courage movie on YouTube at the SeaDrift Media Productions channel. See below for Laura's Dance Notes..

ARTIST, ROBERT BORNN

Robert Bornn, a life-long musician, plays the synthesizer on the Courage album. The synth lends itself to Robert’s original, improvisational expressions.

Robert created electronic music innovations in the 60s. He now brings a lifetime of acoustic creativity and musical sensibility to his electronic music. He delights us by weaving his original musical ideas into innovative tone poems.

Robert first learned percussion and hand drumming in the 50s on the subways and streets of New York City. He was later influenced by 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 created, 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 Worth and the late Ma Boukaka, Congolese American entertainer, teacher, and inspiration for generations of drummers.

In 2003 he founded SeaDrift Media Productions (SeaDriftMedia.com) 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). The sound track to Ocean’s Edge is at CDBaby as SoundMoments duo.

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, available at his page at IndieFlix.com (https://indieflix.vhx.tv/here-and-now-vashon-maury-island.com).

In 2008 Robert released his third nature art film in that evocative Ebb and Flow series, the prescient Bird Dreams movie including his sound track. Bird Dreams is available on YouTube at the SeaDrift Media Productions channel.

In 2009 Robert produced the 2-CD album, Mouyami, by Robert and Laura’s band, DIAJ (Drummers in a Jam) including his featured improvisational performances with Ma Boukaka and Laura.

In 2012 Robert's partner, Laura joined him again as SoundMoments™ duo to produce the album, Love Is … and in 2013 they produced the mostly light-hearted and occasionally poignant album, Inhale! (both available at CDBaby.com for download).

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

In 2017 Robert opened his shop, InsculptaGlass, at Etsy.com to make his abstract, glass art miniatures available to the public and published his movie Chill! on Etsy and YouTube at the SeaDrift Media Productions channel. His glass art miniatures are also at Vashon Island's gallery, Heron's Nest. His other mixed media and multi-media art, dating from the 1960s, can be seen at SeaDriftMedia.com.

In 2017 Robert also released two more movies, 432.4 Hz and the improvisational dance movie, Courage that includes his original sound track by the same name, all available on YouTube at the SeaDrift Media Productions channel.

In November, 2017 Robert released his album, Courage, with his five, dance-inspired, poignant, improvisational tone poems titled: Courage, Inspiration, Love, Renewal, and Transcendence.


LAURA’S DANCE NOTES:
“Who knew that a refreshing run on a California beach could suddenly, now, bring memories so delicious -- and mean so much to me -- because Robert simply showed me his video clip from 35 years ago?

Or that today -- an adult-onset, genetic, muscle-wasting disorder would become a challenge for me at 67 years old?

It is our challenges that can keep us inspired -- if we shape them to be opportunities for continuing growth.

35 years later, I had no idea I would be exploring new physical limits using improvisational, expressive dance that emerges from Robert's musical creations -- in this case, at sunset under our tall, sheltering evergreens -- at our home on an island in the Pacific Northwest.

Life has presented this mystery worth considering: there is spontaneous joy -- in spite of my physical limits -- through this unique form of dance.

My dancing emerges organically from Robert's inspiring, in-the-moment music. With each of us appreciatively mindful of the other, our mutual inspiration unfolds. Each heartbeat brings deeper creative engagement -- with awe of this intuitive partnership, discovery, and love.”
