    Lunch Break at Central Park

    I've almost stopped posting at NS, so I thought I should post a creation before I disappear altogether http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080812/...y2o2UFQlGs0NUE

    Here's the mp3 link which has stream and download options:
    Lunch Break at Central Park

    11:55 of repetitious monotony for full GPO Orchestra.

    The "inspiration" for this work was my fall "vacation" to San Diego to dry out a little. When I returned, I headed to our local John Brown's beach and tried to detox among the Pacific swells smashing among the rocks with eagles, ravens and various sea birds flying overhead. I found the over stimulation of busy-ness, of fast driving cars, and throngs of peoples and entertainments was not so easy to purge. So it was on that beach that this monotonous pieces was conceived. My mind drifted to an imagined New York City and the attempts of an office worker trying to find a little peace during a Lunch Break at Central Park, and of course, not succeeding ...

    I've been known to disappear myself on occasion.
    It's always good to take breaks!

    What a creative work you have brought us!
    Your scene jumps to life; a well executed concept!
    It's seems that you stay in control of your themes yet improvise and create intensional randomness without loosing control. A wonderful talent you have!
    Really impressive and extremely original.

    YBaCuO! Hey, great to see you back in town.

    Er, wait... you seem to be fading, growing transparent... YBaCuO?


    Huh. He seems to be gone...

    Well, in any event:

    Loved it! The piece, that is. It has this great sort of "found art"
    feel to it -- and you've turned it into a very effective, evocative
    setting of scene. And you know, at first it seems to aimlessly
    wander through the elements of a soundscape -- but as it unrolls
    (unravels?), there's a very definite sense of direction, even
    narrative, to it; and the reuse of motivic fragments lends an
    overall inference of structure and organization. By the time I got
    to the end of it, I was completely engrossed!

    YBaCuO, for fascinating originality of the successful variety,
    I gotta give this one a... Bravo!

    Should you happen to rematerialize to collect it, that is...

    My best,

    Often times I wish I could disappear for awhile.

    Nice to see you back.

    This was a lot of fun to listen to. Hope you don't disappear soon. Keep posting and you won't fade away.

    Well done
