BP Gulf Oil Disaster

“The Earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to […]

Gravity Well is Done

We’ve finished the remix of Gravity Well.  You can find it here in the sidebar, and also at Psychanaut music page.  Or if you’re a friend of mine on Facebook, look for the tab called “tracks” on my facebook page.  I wrote the lyrics for this one specifically for the Labyrinth project, and it’s about […]

Just a thought about creativity

In working/playing in the studio,  It’s easy to forget the actual moment of the song’s original beginning.  The writing and performing flow together into the production, and it feels as though the song always existed…we just give it a form in which to express itself. DaVinci said his sculpting was to free the form from […]

Finishing touches to Looking Glass Road

We were in the studio last night with a friend from out of state, listening to the songs that are nearly mixed and a couple that are just awaiting mastering…and he suggested  changing up the cowbell in Looking Glass Road.  We’d already mixed it, but we went ahead and laid a track with a different […]

Producing Arriving

The song “Arriving” has rarely been performed live yet, and even rarely played in rehearsal, so it’s been a bit nebulous to record.  It really needed big harmonies, which we didn’t have in Rock Scarlet, and I’m hoping to add extra background singers with Psychanaut to perform this one live.  the song is a bit […]

Skill Variations

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook […]

About the Labyrinth Collection

Several of our older songs and almost all of the new ones fall into the Labyrinth Collection that will be featured on Psychanaut.com.  It’s a musical story (although any song can stand on its own too) of Universal Consciousness taking physical form, and having a myriad of life these experiences on the way to remembering […]

Everybody wants a show…and recording updates

Yes, I’m getting all your emails and messages on myspace and facebook asking “when is the next show?”  Some of you are worried, some of you are a bit annoyed, and some of you are just really wanting the music and miss us.  We miss you too.   I love hearing from you, it really touches […]

Gravity Well

The newest song we’ve completed writing and recording is Gravity Well, and it’s almost ready to mix.  Once that’s done, we’ll post it and I’ll announce that it’s available.  We had a lot of fun recording the harmonies for this one, it required projection of a certain attitude that could only be achieved by singing […]

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice marks the date of the longest night and the shortest day.  From now until Summer Solstice we get a few seconds more of daylight each day.  Thus it’s also the traditional time of new beginnings.  Rather than wait till January 1st, this is the time for renewal, and new beginnings. It’s appropriate that […]
