Paul Adams - This Christmas
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.

Paul Adams - Of Passion And Peace
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.

Views: 933 Paul Adams
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 Paul Adams album In The Land Where ICome From. A personal favorite of Paul's it wanders through many music and personal aspects.

Paul Adams - Reflections From The Water Pool
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.
