” kprs” is a suite played as four discrete parts; “seven dreams about
time” is seven parts played as a continuous whole.

hector
Written as an hommage to Hector Berlioz and inspired by his writing for woodwinds.

paint
A four-part hommage (mahoning; alchemy; light cloud, dark cloud; 1956-j no. 2) to four of my favorite painters: Franz Kline, Jackson Pollack,Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still.

dynamite’s dionysian dance
Inspired by Frederick Neitzsche’s “Also Sparch Zarathrustra.”

cold green mystery
After a line in the “Thousand Nights and One Night” – –
also known as “The Arabian Nights” – – describing the sea.

our lady of the illuminated hand
A little requiem of sorts.

seven dreams about time
Based on a book that explains Einstein’s theories of time through fictionalized accounts of his dreams.

render
My idea of a musical illustration of the concept of
“render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s . . . ”

secret one-hand shake
A basic rhythmic idea stolen from a piece by
Herbie Hancock.

knowledge is gravity
An attempt to write something inspired by a little reading about String Theory.

Emily Hay: Like Minds (PFMCD022)

Louis Lopez 1 Comment

[playlist ids="403"]
This recording represents various musical projects in which I have participated over the past few years. All tracks are improvisations with no overdubs or second takes, with the exception of “A Year and Two Weeks” where a vocal track was added. “Call To Unarm” and “Like Minds” are from live concert performances, and “A Year and Two Weeks,” “Swamp Moss,” “Waiting For Sara” and “Crooked Hopscotch” were recorded direct to two track tape, with no multi-track mixing. Special thanks to all of the musicians who performed on these recordings, to Lee Scott, Randy Fuelle and Wayne Peet for their engineering expertise, to Annette Buhl for her photography and to Jeff Kaiser for his artwork design and support in releasing this disc.
