Need a gift for a gifted musician?
My life has always centered around songs. Not music, songs. And not just songs, lyrics.
Melody is important. It's what gives poetry a place to be in the world today. And that place is in the center of our lives: in our songs.
Since song lyrics are a form of literature, and my songs are almost always autobiographical, I've decided to call my second song collection "Autobiophonica."
It's a collage of snapshots I took with my heart, filtered through my mind, and set to music. Along with my first collection, "Welcome to the Real World," it's the basic soundtrack of my life.
Let me know if I left anything out.
