I’ve walked. I’ve hummed… and I have let nature take its course.
Another lovely sonic story time collaboration! Enjoy!
Alessandro Muresu –

We are more than we recognize. It’s time to reintroduce ourselves to ourselves.

Music by Alessandro Muresu, Album- Nubi Volume 3 2018- Track 6: A Matter of Principal
Alessandro Muresu Bandcamp
Alessandro has again outdone any expectation I may have toward his Mastery of sound.
My part- at first appearance seems somewhat meaningless- just recording what would be overlooked as mundane sounds of normal life- at times with a little extra manipulation. It doesn’t seem like a symphony.
It sounds like a person walking- or a train sitting at the station. It sounds like wind in a microphone and the chime on the convenience store door. It sounds like an audible story where the only context and relation happens synaptically- charging the heart by overlapping imagination and experience. That is all I do.
Then, I send these files of sounds to Ale- and he embraces the sonic story in his vibratory flux. He modulates and gives structure to my foundation. He weaves the fabric and smooths the edges. All of a sudden- the story becomes rich, a new memory can be made, the synapses fire with a longing and a nostalgia- foreign and familiar.
Without further ado- here are our most recent collaborations. Enjoy! Please share! (Best through headphones, and closed eyes- it is a sonic journey after all!)
No words- just a soundscape for you to let loose your imagination. Grab a pen and paper and draw or write for fifteen minutes, and see where the sounds take you. I created this track with some editing of older sound files- thereby taking some old things and making them new and absolutely different from their original form.
I challenge you to take this fifteen minutes to expand your creativity- it will change your day.
If you take my challenge- Post your writing or drawings in the comments and share the fruit of your inspiration, but above all, enjoy the process! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
The topic of Love keeps falling into my lap. I had to sit down and talk about my personal inner perceptions and insights.
Thank you to my friend Alessandro Muresu who continues to inspire my heart to explore what Love means.
The backdrop of music is Alessandro’s creation, I would love for you to check it out and a just sit with it to let your own inner voice navigate the terrain. I promise it is worth it and priceless.
I like the parts of this etymology that says “grow anew” or to be “born again” , “reappear.”I like it because it is true, time is not linear and more and more these days we are allowed to reconnect with deep soul kin… essentially elongating our interaction through these different wave lengths and time lines.
I am living this now and I want to share some of it with you. Obviously my series about My Best Friend(‘s Journey) is some of the amazing proof of this reality.
My creativity is expressed in many ways: these blogs, the journals, the scraps, the paintings, the music and the spoken word I can’t contain. So much content with context.
I wanted to create a post with all the links to the music up to now because my creative collaborator Alessandro Muresu is some sort of vibration soul mate born on another continent. He is precious to me because he brings out the best in what I struggle with in experiment AND his passion bleeds through his work, for whatever reason he also found me a compatible collaborator and what happens through sound files is soothing for us both. Feeling old and familiar, but new and extraordinary.
I shall not build it up too much more.
Preface- All of these sound qualities have a drone, which is the specialty of Ale. I am the chaos that interferes but can also create soothing. Ale brings all of the balance in composition. My success’ are accidental. I am sloppy but focused. I have no idea what I am doing, but I love manipulating sound. My voice is a tool to those ends. These are posted from earliest to most recent. I invite you to listen to the evolution of it over all and to visit the rest of Alessandro’s Archive of Wonder.
If you don’t want to listen to all of them, pick one for now out of what you are drawn to. It’s probably the right one for you in the moment.
