THE INVISIBLE UNDEAD

dover17

I was up on the cliffs again, this time checking out a place called The Redoubt. I like the emptiness up there. I even got a few words together after the visit, but first I better tell you about the place and its hauntings.

The Redoubt is a fortress that was later reinforced with caponiers in the 1860s to counter the perceived threat of invasion by Napoleon III. It was home and workplace to the regiments of the British Army for over 150 years. A great many soldiers died here. This place was the scene of tragedy. It is these circumstances which are believed to be the root cause of hauntings.

We could not have found a more clinically pure venue to investigate with no other access available, no passing persons, no wildlife, no insecure doors or windows and no interference from power or light sources yet we encountered a host of unexplained noises from the loud and forcible to the quiet and serene. Light sources were not always explainable. Drafts and feelings were explainable.

What are we left with? A number of totally unexplained noises in a building that had no facility to make them on its own.”

Next, my words – perhaps the beginnings of a lyric for a song sometime.


In the darkness you can hear them
The ones who never got away
Blood on chalk, pain then death
But the soul, it don’t decay

They sing the ballad of the unnamed soldier
When the Sun has gone to bed
They won’t be going home again
The invisible undead

Lost love, lost limbs and broken hearts
From fighting in a war
The blackness is their prison now
Locked up behind an unlocked door

You’ll hear them, never see them
If you ever pass by their clifftop cell
The invisible undead, the invisible undead
Outside the gates of Hell


Music wise, the closest I can get to the Invisible Undead is a piece of sound art I made a few years back called ‘March of The Dead’. I hope you enjoy;

It’s always a privilege collaborating with Geetha Prod’hom  As I once wrote a while back she’s, “The talented lady of more artistic skills and genres than I could ever count.”


If you don’t know of her already, do check out the multi-faceted WP blog of GEETHA  – there’s a whole gallery of great poetry, art and other genres there. It’s well worth visiting and following.


Anyhow, here’s Geetha’s new song composed from her breathtaking lyric re my POETRY TO SONG product called ‘I Walk With You’. The finished song now belongs to its creator, Geetha. I suggest headphones at the ready.


Thanks for the opportunity to have worked with you again, Geetha.

BROKEN GLASS

folkestone sky (2)

There are no hero’s out tonight, the last one took the late night flight
Above the clouds, under the moon, and down below the next typhoon


Tomorrow’s not another day, tomorrow I start again – OK?
I dreamed of some place far away, where time stands still and echoes betray


What’s not made of hate is beautiful, what’s made of love is often cruel
I don’t need this hassle anymore, locked in behind an unlocked door


In the shadows of last year’s sad song, I wondered where it all went wrong
It’s easy when with words unsaid, on broken glass, barefoot I tread


A good time for a song. It’s called ‘Shadow On The Wall’ from my Devil’s Kiss album. I hope you enjoy;

DIFFERENT DAYS, DIFFERENT TIMES & MUSIC TO THINK BY

DOVER CASTLE (2)

‘Castle on the Cliffs’


Today I’m running with samples of music matched with scenes from my home town. The music is taken from Volumes 1 & 2 of my Guitar Jam Backing Tracks albums, each album running for around 3 hours. You don’t have to be a musician to get something out of these tracks because they cover a whole mass of different moods to write or think by as well. You can download these albums for a small fee at BANDCAMP

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy this selection of instrumentals and photos.

DEAD DAYS, NEW IDEAS

piano1


What does a musician do when the virus has caused the market to be as good as dead? In my case it’s about thinking of other ways of using my music in a way that has a purpose. In this case a marketing purpose – a promo video with backing music for authors. 


Better put, a creative marketing video for authors about to launch their new book, or wish to give a bit of extra oomph to a book they already have out there. For example, the one below I made for MIKE STEEDEN’S  latest book.


The Blue-Eyed Cat Promo Video from Mike Steeden on Vimeo.


Basically, all I need from an author is the book front cover and a script, say, of the book’s blurb along with audio, chosen by the author, in the form of a song or instrumental from my easy to access portfolio on BANDCAMP – all I’ll need is the song title. This way you don’t have to go paying a fortune for use of a musician’s copyright as you would if, say, you wanted background music from someone you’ve heard on Spotify or such like.


Anyhow, from that collection of book cover, author’s words and my music I can put the lot together into a video for just £35. Should an author want an original instrumental to match the mood of the book and own that piece of music for themselves then the fee is £100 simply because I’d have to compose, produce and mix and the masterpiece.


If you’re interested you can email me on this link PROMO VIDEOS FOR AUTHORS  or via the link at the top of the blog.


Here’s another one I also made earlier, again trying them out on MIKE STEEDEN

Lastly, if you ever require sound for a marketing video you are making yourself or commissioning elsewhere should you find anything from my music portfolio that fits the bill or if you want me to create a bespoke composition just for you then let me know. For a inexpensive fee, to be agreed, I’d be happy to help out.
