Nostalgic Halucination

tThis is an audio clip I made while ago. Its a very dreamy track. I had a lot of nostalgia in mind while playing it. Its probably something you could halucinate on when your really high, or it will probably strike an old memory and make you cry. To me its sounds like you're floating through your life's timeline. Omnipresently viewing the good times. Sort of life when you're dead and remembering the good old days!

Its a very small file, so loop it and hear it for a while.........

Interpret the way you like, but please leave your comments.

Enigma - A Posteriori

Finally I get to get my hands on a new Enigma album! Its been really long.

A Posteriori - "Knowledge got from experience"
Micheal Cretu never fails to touch my soul. There is always this insatiable hunger to hear more.

His current album focuses on Alchemists. Very space like sounds, just like his house! The album opens with Ep Pur Si Mouve which translates to "And still it moves". The song is refering to Galileo Galilei who was being executed for his theory of Heliocentrism. It refers to the fact that the knowledges still moves on inspite of his death. He hints to say that knowledge cannot be destroyed by Death. Its immortal. The song opens with the trade mark Enigma horn, and chorus chants, but, but not samples! Neither humans. They're distorted electronic sounds made to sound like voices! How beautiful! I guess after the past lawsuits Micheal or probably Virgin prefers to stay out of trouble. Or probably Michael did not have the creative inclination to use it any way. Michael Cretu is probably the only human to make electronic music sound like nature. He is probably more in touch with Mother nature than you, me, or any of those bouncing Red Indians.

I always get the feeling that he is part of some secret brotherhood like the Illuminati etc. through his music and artworks. There is always a mystery as to what he is trying to convey to his audience. No wonder the project is called ENIGMA. The strange symbols, the voices, the lyrical content, they always seem to convey something unclear.

Anways as the album progresses there is more of electronic beats but again presented in very ethnic styles. They arn't modified to sound ethnic but the rhythms are ethnic. And what is a Enigma album without Louisa Stanley!! The Voice of Enigma. Pun Intended. There is not much vocals in this album neither a lot of lyrical content, its just painting a picture of space.

The album ends with Goodbye Milky Way, which is probably a Virgin enforced song, meant to be a single. Overall its a magnificent album which will probably take months before you can realy get saturated.........

Rockstar Supernova

The Season has finally ended.

Ended in dissapointment, but not without hope!

Supernova will regret this decision, badly. Lukas Rossi, who is clearly pretentious and fickle will challenge their patience at every oppurtunity given. According to Tommy, who at the end of the show said they listened to their fans and selected him They selected him on the basis of VOTES!!!Clearly they've only selected him on the basis of votes of the previous episode. How can they make such a decision! They've been in the industry longer to judge who is the better among the two. Even if they do want to pick the winner on the basis of votes, clearly dilana has an unbeatable average! Dilana who has been killer from episode one with performances like Lithium, Zombie, Time after time, Wont get fool again(to which Gilby said that they no longer doubt a woman could front theor band).

Supernova is probably not man enough to let a woman front their band. Its not about insecurity about a woman on stage, its probably that they think that it probably wont workout, may be the fans wont be up for it. They dont have the guts to carry it forward. Hey but this isnt the firs mistake Supernova has commited. Who can forget Ryan Star!!! They should have let him be atleast till the songwriting episode to actually see if he was good enough top write songs. Because all the favourites came crashing down in that episodes including Dilana!. But they let storm Large stay, who should'e gone long ago, but hey if Zayra could never sing and stay so long, why not her!! Ryan was the actual songwriter amongst all of them and has proved in his single. His single has been the most downloaded song on beating Supernova's track as well! How about that? And Lukas, this ego-centric charecter did'nt even bother to write the complete song, he just walked in with complete attitude with a Verse and Chorus! And they selected him! Imagine him in the studio & throwing tantrums to Tommy Lee! Man I can see Tommy Lee crying in sheer frustation and helplessness! Just one nights voting doesnt determine the best singer. If people had enough brains would'nt HIP-HOP not be popular in the first place! They've been in the music business longer and should judge for them selves.

Dilana is the ultimate rock chick who could have revolutionized rock music by making girls an essential part of it. She would have given rise to a new race of girls like her who would've become synonymous with rock music.

Nevertheless, I look forward to Dilana's single album rather than Supernova's. Thank god I did not pre-book that album. I'll just download it off the internet.

Rock on Dilana \,,/
