Following this, beneath it, are some rambling notes that might tell the story of how the songs came about. I hope you find time to listen to the music, and if you do I sincerely hope you enjoy it!
The instrumentation is arranged in each song to fit the subject. Each song is its own world, a place for the people in the songs to live. The songs say what they have to say, then end. Many are entirely acoustic.
I set a limitation before recording: there would be no drums one song contains about 10 seconds of drums, but otherwise, nothing — double bass or bass guitar is used instead as the rhythmic base. This had the effect of opening up a lot of space, as well necessarily forcing the songs into focus.
It changed everything. We collaborated fully on the orchestrations and the result was a revelation to me — a complete turnaround in many ways. They all play about 20 instruments with varying degrees of skill, and their approach was often the exact opposite of what I would have initially thought. Of course, in some cases, they did exactly as I said, and shut the hell up about it — ha ha!
But the best thing for me was the surprise of hearing the songs in a new light I had a great time making this record. In any event, I hope the songs speak to you in some way Thanks for your time! Musicians: Michael Gira — acoustic guitar, vocals, harmonica, various. This time, he first entered my mind while I was watching a lurid and humiliating for everyone involved television special that examined the strange and wonderful Disney-like life of a certain fallen Media God, whose race-less, androgynous visage, coupled with his preternatural dance steps and feline voice have placed him in the consciousness of millions of people throughout the world He would saturate our gleaming cities with caustic gas and chemicals — we could feel it gnawing at the inside of our lungs as we watched!
Egged on by my ever-present hovering best friend, I wrote a prayer for this morphed deity. That was the seed, but it spread. This was written as we plunged forward into our current Mesopotamian abyss. We all watched it on TV and continue to do so, so I assume it actually happened and is still happening.
People are dying, many horribly maimed as well, and I, like millions of others have watched, hungry for more images, as tiny, well-scrubbed and palatable bites of it unfold parsimoniously on the screen.
And then a hero died. My own father had this quality in his voice, but then again, so did William Burroughs — and maybe even Charles Bukowski had it too — ha ha! A quality of resignation, but a brooding, hardened and resilient strength also — the voice of a survivor, but definitely NOT a victim — the voice of a man that keeps getting up and coming at you no matter how many times you knock him down or maybe how many times he finds himself lying in a mess of his own making.
Angels, whom Muslims believe are made of light, love people with a pure love that comes from God. Miraculous apparitions also make use of light and may feature spectacular, supernatural light effects.
Light is often associated with wisdom. People who are spiritually enlightened have the wisdom to choose truth over deception in their everyday lives. A system of angel colors , which corresponds to different colored light rays in the electromagnetic spectrum, matches angels whose energy vibrates at certain frequencies to light rays that vibrate at those same frequencies. Some people seeking wisdom and help from the angels about different issues in their lives use it to connect with angels specializing in different types of missions.
Just as light reflects off mirrors to help people see themselves, faithful people can engage in spiritual reflection to see the state of their souls, motivating them to seek more spiritual wisdom.
The process of God giving wisdom to those who seek it is a miraculous one since it changes people for the better in profound ways.Michael Gira made his name with the much revered Swans, but his Angels Of Light project is a million musical miles away from work of the past.
