A New American Prayer

UFOverdriver - A New American Prayer

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

ufoverdriver-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…

The Brothership Has Landed

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.

Listen to the complete work – 43 Minutes and 38 Second…
