Messengers Of Life

In Search Of Life

Release Date: 16th March, 2012

I would have to say that 2012 has become a voyage of re-discovery for my music, as I discovered some old tapes that were done a long time ago. One of those tapes was a live recording of a work entitled In Search Of Life, a recording done at the end of 1974 with some musician friends. We did not play in the same band but each was in a band at the time. The tracks had been written in September and October of that year, and it was decided to perform and record the work with an invited audience before I made my departure from Bingara, where I had been living for the previous 7 years. 

This recording is, with no apologies, a "warts and all" release of that original recording, so it does feature the out of tune harmonies that occurred in the performance as well as other "sound effects" (such as microphone stands being bumped). The recording was done onto a 2 track reel to reel tape recorder straight from the mono PA system that we used at the time.

The work is all about life. It covers the issues (in general terms) we face in life; the questions these can cause; the confusion they often create and then moves into the answer to all of these issues.

Each of the 4 tracks is quite lengthy as they move through the general subject of the title. The times of each track are given in the precis of the track. Just click on the title of the track to listen to it in full. The entire album can be downloaded using the button at the end of the information.
