UFOverdriver has now released the They Call Me The Breeze – Run Baby Run On Mix – Wikileaks Version with extra media material included which covers some of the Wikileaks news from December 7th through 14th, 2010 – as well as some other sound bites for your listening pleasure – released here and through the UFOverdriver podcasts.
This week I offer you a break from all the Christmas music you’ve been hearing while you’re out shopping with an experimental mix from UFOverdriver using music and samples from Pink Floyd, Moby, U2 and Spiritualized.
I spent some time on this mix playing with asynchronous beats that sublimely change relationship over the course of the piece.
I made several versions of this piece with extra media material mixed into it – but the “clean” mix of music works very well on it’s own, so here is the podcast only (and here on the website of course) mix of They Call Me The Breeze – Run Baby Run On Mix – Club Version.
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.”
The mainmusic 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.
