a smaller cello in an even smaller guitar: BRENT BEATLASH and HA!MAN
WHO: BEATLASH + HA!MAN
WHERE TO LISTEN ALONG: http://beatlash.bandcamp.com/
what do a CELLO-IST and a GUITARER have in common?
lets see what happens
the tones.. small rain drops...?? but these rain drops are of strange colour and texture.
is in the voice
of this singer.
the gentle pitter pattering of these gobbish drops slowly fall and KERSPLOOSH onto the street.
:56 WOW a cello a voice a throat singer? what UNIMAGINABLE GENTLENESS
1:11 oh ... this..... it sounds like an indigenous music. a music native to all and every man. this is folk , this is classical and un classist, this is togetherness. i am the putty and these sounds mold me , each vibration traveling into my brain and riding the rhythms of new neural passages ...
i actually feel PHYSICALLY COMFORTED.
2:32 sing on you crazy amethyst
RATING - who needs a rainforest when BEATLASH and HA!MAN fall from the sky of sound
a similar embarkment. this music could be very old or very new, i am not sure.
:46 sinking and sorrowful melodies clamor on
YOU the listener, do you not feel like a you are once again a child, a baby, and all you have to rely on is your imagination? before you had "knowledge" of the world around you, you relied just on instinct and creative thoughts to explain things. i feel this is what this music is, like a creation story to explain how we got here, only im not yet sure what it wants to explain. what does it explain to you? there is somethign very important here
this is a wonderful embrace. the lack of a STEADY BEAT (BEATLASH?!) really takes the foundation away its like BEING ALIVE IN THE SKY ON THE FOURTH OF JULY?
2:20 CRUNCH that guitar makes some wonderful vibrations.
RATING - hold me a little longer
i regret to inform our listeners this is the LAST STOP!! lets enjoy what we have
:32 SUCH SORROW in one note?? how is this possible
:45 some sounds, i feel like i am there
:52 the guitar raises the voice
1:00 OH ITS LIEK THAT!! the piano LITERALLY GIGGLES at its smaller friend, GUITAR
1:20 PIANO SAYS "HEY WHY NOT? I HAVE MY OWN CAR ILL GIVE YOU A RIDE FOR FREE"
SMALL GUITAR ANSWERS BACK
1:40 "BUT HOW CAN I TRUST YOU"
P- because i am very steady
G- i am afraid, i am used to other ways
P- but i am so beautiful for a stranger, trust my adventure
G- im just not used to this! you are going to fast! allow me to slow down
P+G-lets be gentle right now
P- HAHAHA I STEER CRAZY!!! I am in control but you get afraid!
G- yes i am timid dont hurt me! i trust you though!
P-THEN JOURNEY WE SHALL! NEW SOUNDS FOR YOU TO LEARN FROM
(the little guitar was scared but he knew to learn he had to open his ears to become everything he could the secrets of the journey was to trust that which he was always afraid to - himself ((and the piano)) the piano was his friend now, was not sure if he would see him)
G- i am strong enoguih to sing on my own in a NEW WAY i have USED THESE RARE LESSON THAT PIANO HAS SHOWED ME and have become a better version of me! NO MORE TIMID! I AM PROUD
G - WHAT IN GOOD GOLLY IS THAT?!
*ENTER THE OWL*
O- I AM A MALEVOLENT OWL SENT FROM THE SKY TO WRONG DO YOU , ARE YOU AFRAID?
G - i will sing on you may not corrupt me
and so the owl knew that GUITAR was strong willed and turned into a cellist
RATING - SING AND REJOICE AND THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOUR
wow friends. wow.
when i listen to this new music i always take the same journey with you and i NEVER know what to expect anymore. when listening to this music i think all the clocks in the world stop and EVERYTHING existed in a pure moment for once.
i very much hope HA!MAN and BEATLASH would make and deliver more music to my ears.
