I am taking a momentary pause now from posting my poetry so I can bring you an announcement. I am proud to announce that my long-awaited second soundscape album called “Feel The Slowness” has dropped via my Bandcamp (https://devinmurphyartist.bandcamp.com/album/feel-the-slowness).
And Feel The Slowness is an audio album made up of 14 individual soundscapes which aim to get the listener to feel the quality or state that being slow can bring about, hence slowness. It should be mentioned that some of these soundscapes are intended to bring about in the listener a slower sense of slowness then some of the other soundscapes. It should also be mentioned that it is best if these soundscapes are not listened to while operating any power tools, heavy equipment or wile driving any kind of motorized vehicle as they have been created with the hopes of absorbing and relaxing the listener.
I have not had any poetic inspiration for a wile now. But when my poetic inspiration returns to me, I will post the results right here on Lyricsofmylife. Until then, here is another new soundscape of mine called “Slowness Number Five“, which like Slowness Number Eleven will be included, in higher quality, as the fifth track on my upcoming soundscape album called “Feel The Slowness” which explores the theme of slowness. So for the moment enjoy having a listen to this soundscape composition, and when my poetic inspiration returns to me so will the poems here on Lyricsofmylife.
No this is not a new poem of mine. And yes more of my poems will be posted here on Lyricsofmylife in the future. Rather this is a new soundscape of mine called “Slowness Number Eleven“, which will be included, in higher quality, as the eleventh track on my upcoming soundscape album called “Feel The Slowness” which explores the theme of slowness. So for the moment enjoy having a listen to this soundscape composition, and I promise more of my original poems right here on Lyricsofmylife in the not too distant future.
I am going to pause for a moment from posting my poems to bring you an announcement. Don’t worry I will be posting new poems of mine right here real soon. What is this announcement? Well I can finally say that my debut album called “Alien Landscapes” will be available for free streaming and free download starting Wednesday September 5 at 9 am Atlantic Daylight Time on my new Bandcamp page. What kind of album is Alien Landscapes? No it is not a poetry album. In fact it is a soundscape album. If you are unfamiliar with what a soundscape is Wiktionary describe it this way:
1. An acoustic environment, a virtual/emotional environment created using sound.
2. A soundscape composition – an electroacoustic musical composition creating a sound portrait of a sound environment.
Alien Landscapes will be made up of 41 tracks. Each track will be an individual soundscape. Theses soundscapes of mine will run for as short as 30 seconds to as long as 13 minutes and 49 seconds. My aim in creating theses soundscapes is to fully immerse the listener in varying fictional alien environments ranging from the soothing to the highly jarring. My hope is you will have a listen and if you like what you here pass it along to your friends and family members. At least to the ones you think will also like it.
