Voy is a " dynamic album" ... an unfinished collection of working tunes, sketches, minute dances, and improvisations. It's very much work in progress, with the best of these ideas hoping to find a fuller form, through collaborations with and suggestions from dancers, radiophiles, filmmakers, theatermakers, movers, shakers, and other inspired listeners.
Like you perhaps?
Several touchstone tunes from the past two years that aren't (yet?) a part of voy, though perhaps they'll make an appearance as voy grows and shapeshifts. Send along a note if a particular track inspires you to hear a new story, soundscape, dance, or image ...
Much of this music had its origins in improvisations with some of the wonderful dancers and choreographers I've lately been so fortunate to share studios with. Thank you Sara & Patrik, and Steph. Thank you Keira, Cassie, Matthew, Shula, Margot, Daniel, Andrea, Elena, Helanius, Sarah O, and all the inspiring DXers and 8s. Thank you! Several tracks here aired on The Story with Dick Gordon, which has since vanished from the airwaves — thank you Katie and Carol.
Sometimes a lovesong can sound like a lament. Happy Valentines Day!
PS: "Quiet LIfe Motel," my debut album heard on NPR and APM,is available by bandcamp as well ...
released 14 February 2014
Eddie Eatmon plays melodious bass on "By Eddie's Hands" — he'll add more in the future, with any luck. Bob Novak mastered tracks 1-4, 7, 9, 10, 12 & 13. All music here was written, performed, recorded and mixed by David Schulman, who plays violin, electric violin, mandolin, and percussion, some better than others.
