Album Notes
Silent Majority (January, 20, 2015)

The intention had been to create a double album with «Mysterious Times», the predecessor of «Silent Majority». But the amount and the variety of the compositions didn't allow a common sound denominator. Nevertheless, 15 of the 28 songs found their place on «Mysterious Times». It would have been a double album, but not a homogeneous album. Therefore, it was a good decision to make two independent albums. One might assume, frivolously, that this is irrelevant with instrumental music; yet, that's not the case, as we have known for centuries, for instance considering classical music.

Reading the title names – allowedly the only apparent evidence of a concept album in the instrumental sector – the attentive reader will notice immediately that there is more than just a string of tones and songs behind it. The rest is provided by the well arranged soundscapes which always include (as it is habitual with Tom Kelly's Music Factory) a view on something new.

But in a time in which distraction and excessive demand have got a permanent job it has become difficult to really listen. Yet instrumental music is the perfect medium to countersteer: You normally don't get «outdoor pavilion popular music», and it's not really the case to vacuum clean while listening to this music. Instrumental music speaks for itself and therefore has the advantage not to be right nor wrong. You will never have a Babylonian confusion as it can be the case with music with song texts.

I think it's a great advantage to be able to compose free from constrictions. This way, the music can encourage international understanding. Pat Metheny makes music without words, Ken Navarro, Kitaro, Vangelis, sometimes Pink Floyd, Santana and even rock bands are without words, as thousands others more. In the end, music is a matter of taste. And it's good this way. Nevertheless I wish many musicians would show more quality and assiduity – and the listeners more «listening», or better, «careful listening»! The latter is not just a question of respect, and it doesn't concern only music, but also the many mute cries for help in our daily living together that sometimes are ignored with levity. The title «Silent Majority» stands in this context and it was, no wonder, chosen deliberately. This applies also for the opener «Happiness Can Be Easy». If only they would let us sometimes!
