Rhythmic stream

Two young people meet in front of Town Hall where AurovilleRadio is located. They both like hip hop, they both like the sonnets of Sri Aurobindo. It comes out as an improvisation on the theme of Tranformation:
My breath runs in a subtle rhythmic stream;
It fills my members with a might divine:
I have drunk the Infinite like a giant’s wine.
Time is my drama or my pageant dream.
Now are my illumined cells joy’s flaming scheme…

And changed my thrilled and branching nerves to fine
Channels of rapture opal and hyaline
For the influx of the Unknown and the Supreme.
I am no more a vassal of flesh,
A slave to Nature and her leaden rule;
I am caught no more in the senses’ narrow mesh.
My soul unhorizoned widens to measureless sight,
My body is God’s happy living tool,
My spirit a vast sun of deathless light.

Homage to Syd Barrett

"This soundscape is a musing on the coming monsoon in Auroville, with its different moods. While working on the composition, however, I was confronted with the tragic news of the recent demise of Syd Barrett, the initial founder of Pink Floyd. He can be regarded as one of the groundbreaking pioneers of surrealistic modern music despite his early leave from Pink Floyd in the late ’60s. The kind of music he initiated, together with Pink Floyd’s visual experiments during their early performances, have been putting their stamp on many bands and music groups to follow ever since. Therefore I would like to dedicate this piece in memory of him."- Jaap

Prometheus

"This CD is a short exposition of 9 ‘easy’ pieces written for piano only. Its underlying thematical structure is made with references to the poem ‘Prometheus’ by Johan Wolfgang Goethe. In this poem Goethe gives his own ideas about the myth of Prometheus. It would be to difficult to explain this poetry but something of it is hopefully captured in the composition of these short pieces for piano only."- Padro
