Earlier this year Texas-based quintet Balmorhea released their stunning masterpiece in Constellations. On December 7th the group will return to unleash an all new 7 featuring two tracks entitled Candor/Clamor. Above you can listen to the 3-minute a-side track. [Interview with Balmorhea’s Rob Lowe]
With an almost electric drum intro, “Candor” is most reminiscient of avant-garde jazz musician Albert Ayler’s most primal free-jazz moments. But the track isn’t all jazz in the slightest. A bit of rock, a bit of classical, a bit of folk, Balmorhea is just ‘new music’ at its finest. Do yourself a favor and head over to candorclamor.com to check out the visual accompaniment for the tracks and pre-order the 7” before it sells out.
I know we all have these random ideas that may seem crazy now but WAS ONCE SO REAL AND TRUE to our emotions and knowledge during the time it was spawned. Some post them and share them to others but there are some who don’t. I think that it’ll be good for all of us to write them down once in a while but within a short span of time from its creation. So that when we write it down then and there, it will be a true presentation of our inexhaustible idea, the sincerity in having that idea, and the emotions we have experienced towards that idea.
It will not be limited to art, music, design, technology, etc. It will be about life in general (includes bucket lists, direction in career, plans to travel). It could be anything small that was once a big deal to us personally. Sometimes after having this spur of the moment, we tend to just forget it and lean towards thinking that it is not possible or possible, but we just didn’t invest enough effort - and we usually do. We tend to let it pass by knowing that there was a chance for it to be something great and make a dramatic or even little change to this world, if not to ourselves.
Keep your ideas and write them down. You might use them someday. Because you yourself know that they once seemed real to you.
It makes me think of making a new blog for random people to submit their random ideas - unless there is already at least one that exists. Is there?
