JUST MUSIC series - vol 26
Genre: 80's / electronic instrumental songs
(please refer to this page for notes about this series macofbionight.bandcamp.com/track/introduction-to-the-just-music-series
Even if it wasn't planned at all, this album in three volumes (volume one is here macofbionight.bandcamp.com/album/the-midday-hook-vol-01
, volume three is here macofbionight.bandcamp.com/album/the-midday-hook-vol-03
) celebrates my first 30 years of music making. It's quite a coincidence, considering the title of one of the tracks ("30 years before/later/more," it is featured in three versions) that now sounds almost prophetic. This triple album contains, quite simply, most of the tracks I love above any other I have composed. They all come from extremely important periods of my life, when I was trying to find out who I was and wanted to be while also trying to understand what my place in the world was. The intensity of my emotions back then was just amazing. All of these tracks were trapped in the audiocassettes I recorded them on for decades, waiting for me to have the gear and the ability to record them properly, and now they're finally here. They are just a big bunch of silly songs based on few chords and sounding all the same, but they represent the framework of my very life and soul.
Please note: I recently realized that several people misunderstood the nature of these albums. They are not compilations of old tracks I had already recorded, they were only composed many years ago, but have been performed and recorded here for the very first time!
Notes on some of the tracks:
- "More than anything" is another one of my favorites, possibly just below "All I miss".
- "So damn cold" is the only track on these albums that comes from the present (I'm writing this in 2011). For some reason, I felt the need to go back to the way I made music in the 80's and I wrote this song. The result was actually so "realistic" and honest that I decided to include it here.
- "Fading into the morning" already appeared on "A safe haven," but I included it here because it also belongs to the group of tracks that now live on this album.
