In Honor of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Won’t You Help To Sing These Songs Of Freedom

Today is April 3, 2010 – 42 years since Rev. King gave the speech used at the end of this sound collage, his last speech, the “Mountain Top” speech. A prophetic statement concerning his own death which contains a promise for his people – you will get to that promised land!

“Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead.

But it doesn’t matter with me now. Because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind.

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now.

I just want to do God’s will.

And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people will get to the promised land.

And I’m happy, tonight.

I’m not worried about anything.

I’m not fearing any man.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.”

Source Material

The main music pieces used in this sound collage include Pink Floyd’s “Is There Anybody Out There” and “Hey You” from their album The Wall and Bob Marley’s “Redemption Songs” – one of my favorite songs.

Mixed-in are clips from the CBS News announcement of Rev. King’s death and the speech mentioned above.

Enjoy, reflect and pass it on…

Here’s my Sunday sermon – enjoy, reflect, pass it on…


Source material

Background music bed – various samples and loops taken from the live Delirious? album from the late 1990’s called Live and In The Can along with a bit from Radiohead‘s album Kid A, the first track called Everything In It’s Right Place.

The voice samples are from an ABC news report on Glenn Beck’s recent social justice comment, and  also Johnny Cash (standing in for the words of Jesus) reading from the New Testament – Matt. 25:31-46

The Brothership Has Landed

What happens when you cut-up and re-mix Pink Floyd’s classic 1977 album Animals with Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, David Byrne and Brian Eno,  DJ John Digweed and other musical slices along with a number of sound clips from the mass media and popular culture?

You get a snap shot of current events in the form of an epic sound collage by UFOverdriver called The Brothership Has Landed… (note: the working title for this project was Weapons of Mass Communication – that got changed…)

This sound collage was constructed in 3 Acts between March 5th and March 17th, 2010 – and the completed piece contains 12 individual tracks, with a total length of nearly 44 minutes long.
