This "radical" NewAgian instrumental musical-canvas was done during June as part of a larger work I afterwards titled: MY MUSICAL SISTINE CHAPEL. The kind of music that only can be composed by someone who has undergone as much isolation as that famous Renaissance Painter himself must have during his work on the "vault" (I've been alone now 3 years here but it will end in April 2010)
Anyway: I them re-performed and re-corded it again as part of a live set intending to go into a recording of my piece "Big Wave Rider" from CD: August Ocean Overture. I have yet to re-record that part that's why it ends with a refrain of my Big Wave Rider theme (those who own the CD hopefully will recognize that)
Meanwhile I've excerpted this track as an mp3 to include on my 2009 CD: Unrequited which is currently in post production.
Hey I'm looking for cover photos to use for this CD cover now! I can't pay $ but will certainly give anyone credit if I choose to use a photo that you have copyright to. It needs to do with the theme "Unrequited" if I use it. I only have a few pics of my own that will work.
So let me know here at AD if you want to submit one of your own...(message)
Here's the LINK but remember this is live performed music but heavily layered and of radical conception. Tiny computer speakers hardly due it justice, so adjust your treble for clarity. If it seems muddy it should in the beginning but the high parts come in later. I reccomend giving it enough volume to give it a "surround-sound" effect...

Either of these links works great on High-Speed - I'm not sure which is best on dial-up but since that's what I'm stuck with here in the Florida outback, it is best to "right-click" it into another tab and it just takes awhile to download but you may not hear all of it at once! Dial-up sucks but that's what I'm stuck with too...

|Michael, it's really beautiful. I am on very slow dial-up also. High speed isn't available here yet where I live in the mountains and when it is, I won't be subscribing to it. Although it is slow on music and photo downloads, there's a true beauty in the slow cyber world. For five years, I have managed quite nicely to network, do my work on my books with my publisher and build a wide fan-base on dial-up. I live my days slow, with nothing regimented. It's a good way to live. I would much rather sit here and enjoy the deer, fox, coyote and rabbits I see out my window at all hours of the day. Last week, my she-wolf disemboweled a skunk. The air was strong for days! I'm checking her daily to make sure the skunk wasn't rabid. There's a lot of rabies going around in skunks right now. The dog rabies shots don't work on wolves, so I don't vaccinate for rabies. A rattlesnake killed two of my she-wolves over the years. I've seen nature interact at its wildest here. The rattlers coiled up and jumped five feet, hurling at the wolves who killed the snakes but in the process got fanged. Caused one to go blind. The wolves have disemboweled racoons too, they go for the kill if something gets into their area. I saw where you will be sending money to wildlife defenders for the wolves. I have been raising wolves for nearly 20 years, so I am pretty much out of it now. My journey has been completed with the wolves. I have learned much. It's time to enter another phase of life for me now--I'm pretty much going to loaf and just write when I want and enjoy this fall season and my winter here in Wet Mountain chain of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It's my favorite time of the year. I know you too appreciate nature...I'm listening to this on your garageband page now...it's lovely. I wish you well and I hoped you enjoyed reading The Buckskin Skirt Oar Traveler. I can envision your music accompanying the Buckskin Skirt Oar Traveler oaring down the river and complimenting the loons...stay well, Michael...Blessed Be.

|Through it all, I hear the sirens call. This piece is as heavy as death, but redeems itself in the glorious end. This one brings out the classical composer in you and should get the critical attention it deserves.
