Watching With Your Eyes Closed
I just finished a new video for the sound collage The Dream Leaver last night (June 16 going on 17), which is track number six off of the new UFOverdriver album - A New American Prayer…
The video is deliberately abstract in style to allow your imagination the freedom to remain active while listen/watching this piece.
Sound collages are, by nature, a “theater of the mind” experience, and making videos can interfere with that process in the long run… but we are a video oriented culture right now, and I’ll use all my tools to get the UFOverdriver messages out to the world…
With that in mind – feel free to close your eyes and just listen instead of watching the video if you like…
About The Dream Leaver
Some of the source material for this sound collage include the songs Dream Weaver by Gary Wright and God by John Lennon, which have been sampled and looped to create an interplay between the lyrics of the two songs while throwing in some extra sound clips to shape the collage.
After you enjoy the video, you can go download the entire album for FREE – http://ufoverdriver.onehumanbeing.com/albums-from-ufoverdriver/a-new-american-prayer/
Why download? So you can burn your own CD, or remix it and add it to your special mix CDs you make for your friend, or put it on your iPod and listen to it while your go out running or exercising… and stuff like that.
Spin, Rinse and Repeat.

Flying Into The Mystery
After numerous late night flights at 72,000 feet of the UFOverdriver for the purpose of taking audiographic measurement of the subconscious weather over North America during the spring months of 2010, one human recordings is proud to present the composite audiograph (or sound collage) to document the flux density of this passage of time.
Does that seem a bit confusing? Well, this is how I commented on the process on my onehumanbeing.com website:
Today is June 2, 2010 – and the second day of my lamentations for America… my soul is crying. Weeping and wailing and throwing ashes on my head (figuratively speaking) – so sad.
I have been working on some sound collages for the last couple of night, ever since we returned from camping in the desert… the working title is New American Prayers
…a variety of pieces based on, or inspired by, the album by Jim Morrison and The Doors called An American Prayer.
This project is not the source of my lamentations, only an expression, and not nearly adequate yet…
Eight days later I released this album… retitled A New American Prayer
What Will I Find In This Sound Collage?
This album of sound collages is a much more personal than the first two releases from UFOverdriver. Recorded during several different sessions over several months of the Spring of 2010, a variety of threads are gathered together and woven into this snapshot of my thoughts and visions of this moment in time.
On this album I draw from my experience with Bipolar Disorder, my spiritual visions, dreams, inspirations, revelations, my beliefs in social justice, and my continuing explorations of Jungian thinking…
