An acoustic holiday and Christmas album in a very gentle prairie setting. The mood is somewhat ethereal and the sound is acoustic.I love the whole John Fahey thing as well as the Aaron Copeland approach. American. Of coarse, keeping it from sounding like a Christmas album was important as well.

THE PROPERTY OF WATER was a collaborative effort utilizing the organic and silicon. Laurie Spiegel's Music Mouse program for mac was used to control the melodic and rhythmic structure of the synth's (The keyboards of Synths were not used). This rather austere method, was then combined with acoustic instruments like Guitar, Harmonica, vocal, as well as Nature Sounds. These Nature Sounds were recorded to 1. Emphasize the audio in headphones and 2. to actually use in the structure on the song rather than just a backdrop (EX using thunder strikes in place of cymbals, etc). Bill Binkleman of WIND AND WIRE magazing called THE PROPERTY OF WATER one of the finets recordings of the year. Thanks Bill.

From Paul Adams album THE PROPERTY OF WATER. This song as well as the others on the album were composed for yoga, massage and relaxation. The unique approach is that the entire album was done using Computer and Digital music pioneer Laurie Spiegel's MUSIC MUSE for computer. This intelligent program utilizes the computer keys rather than synth or sequencer for all music commands. EX. press one key you get staccato, another Legato, yet another chooses scale etc etc. The mouse is used to create melodic sequences. When you stop creating w/ the mouse, it improvises over what you've done. Laurie called the album a "unique blend of Silicon and Wood," as this rather clinical approach was combined with real instruments, and special stereo recordings of nature. Another unique approach is that the Nature sounds were not used just as a backdrp, but in some cases, part of the melodic structure. Example, thunder may be heard in place of crash cymbals.

From Elizabeth Geyer's album THE BRIDGE. Transitioning to singer/songwriter from her jazz background, she is a story teller in the deepest sense. The album is for those who love to listen to stories... and perhaps lose themselves in a world of those who long for nobility and honor. Song written by Elizabeth Geyer. Recorded and produced by Elizabeth with Paul Adams. Video by Paul. All music rights reserved.

March Of The Butterlanders is the ending song on Paul Adams album In The Land Where I Come From. It is a little fantasy with a couple of meter shifts. An existential peek into the Zen experience of inner butter. A state of mind accomplished through great battles of Butterlanders being weighed down by their pride and intellectual prowess

From my album THE PROPERTY OF WATER. I wanted to utilize the wonderful photography of Jerry Derbyshire (geoArts.net) for one of these songs. The album attempts to mix what laurie Spielberg call's a melding of Silicon and Wood. Real and synthetic working together. The result I hope is a gentle meditative and calming effect on the listener

From Paul Adams album In The Land Where ICome From. A personal favorite of Paul's it wanders through many music and personal aspects. Abit on the existential side of things due to a storyline that wanders between the lines. David Hoffman played wonderful trumpet between his Ray Charles gigs. Doug Knecht played wonderful Mandolin. Kit Watkins offered a few magical synth solos and Mark Smith shines as always on percussion

Playing flute for my bovine friends. These guys came strolling over after hearing the flute. Hard to play w/ one hand and hold the phone in the wind, but they seemed curious and like me perhaps wanted a little distraction. Them from boredom... me from Trump

From Paul Adams album THE PROPERTY OF WATER. This was an unusual Ambient compsition that also utilizes a sense of melodicism and beauty. The general structure of the song was composed using Laurie Spiegel's Music Mouse (Laurie was an early proponent of synthesizers and Digital music from the Bell labs). The approach was to use this intelligent music program , with acoustic instruments, and nature Sounds specially "tweeked" for the Stereo Spectrum. Laurie calls it a "merging of silicon and wood and highly recommends it for headphones." It was also WIND AND WIRE Magazines album of the year in 1997.

Paul Adams song The Swing Reel Fantasy is from his album In The Land Where I Come From. This is a pixelated acoustic/electric and eclectic Irish tune with focus on Guitar, energy, and oddness. Perhaps a bit orchestral in it's unusual and passionate way.
