Monday’s Music Box: Soundtrack for Surfing…The Cinematic Orchestra

This is my city.

My city is a dark city.

My city sleeps in the light.

Comes alive when niceties,

formalities, moralities doze.

Murder capital. Mainstream

mainline midwest nightmare.

Only a city could have made this.

Only a city would have made this happen.

Susurrations and  permutations

in plain black and white surreal noir.

Darkness made Visible. Organic ordination

in non-ordinal imaginary numbers.

The Order of the Night.

The statistics lie and we are all spies

sleeping through our lives and

turning and turning and turning

on each other and turning

each other on

and off, on and

off, on




Monday’s Music Box: Since I can’t seem to stop thinking about…


Something a little contemporary.

Something a little classical.

Something a little contradictory?

Something a little self-contradictory?

Something a little stringy.

Something a little septet-y.

Something a little Simeon.

What is added?

What is taken away?

And where is that seventh string thing?

Aaah, there it is.

Almost at the seventh minute.

Of course. Of courses.

Monday’s Music Box: Lost in the Mist…

…of Alfa Mist

Another wonder found through the fresh algorithms of Youtube.  Not sure what makes their’s different, but I can’t stand what Pandora and Spotify try to throw at you while Youtube always seems to give me glorious surprises.

Don’t usually go in for much hip-hop, but this is beauteously blended with Jazz to make a tasty time for the ears….

Reminds me of late ’60’s / early ’70’s Miles Davis with a definite modern sensibility.  Is it a coincidence that Miles Davis – Miles In The Sky (1968) is now appearing in my ‘recommended’ feed on Youtube?  I think not.

Monday’s Music Box: My new favorite….

…track, album, band.  You name it.

Amazing sounds from a group that I have not been able to find out much about except that they are from Argentina.

With a touch of Africa, Asia and Jazz….

Stunning work.

Such a broad range of sounds, colors and textures.

A dream of an aural landscape for the mind to wander in.

Beautiful, beautiful music.

Monday’s Music Box: Happy St. Pat’s! (from Muppet-land)

….a few days late, but worth the wait, I think.

I pretty much pee myself every time I watch this.
