This Is A Dream
This is a time traveling love song
Pat Canavan returns with his second rocking solo album with 14 songs. You Give Good Vegas is as diverse as the city itself.
Single - A rousing Big Band Jazz number, heavy on the brass and reminiscent of big band orchestras of late night talk shows. Great dance number to ring in the New Year.
One of the best albums ever recorded, "Songs for Sale" is a timeless classic that is a hit time and time again. With hit songs like "Albert Einstein" and "Winds of Change" you will love this album.
Pat Canavan, Dave Skrabec and Bill Scholte are the core band HERE. Their Newgrass album is an acoustic masterpiece with melodic melodies, lush harmonies, interwoven guitar and bass riffs layered with elegant string arrangements. Each song is a sonic exploration of the ever awakening and evolving human consciousness.
Drywater Falls is the best representation of the band's sound. It was a very spiritually awakening time for everyone. This musical presence was an expression of the unfolding awakening in ourselves and mankind.
This album is designed to balance your inner electric and outer electromagnetic frequencies. Pat's largest selling album, Celestial Co-Creation is a half hour musical massage. It uses acoustic therapy techniques and specific frequencies to bring about a shift in the body's electric and electromagnetic fields. It was developed for Norma Toomb's Relexation Plus program.
Dave Skrabec, Bill Scholte, Alar Pahapill and Pat Canavan on vocals. Songs written by Bill and Dave. This is some of the heaviest Progressive Rock ever recorded. It is also the widest vocal range of any current music. This is a true representation of the great talent of these musicians.
In the CD liner of this album, the question is posed: "What would the earth sound like if you could hear it breathing?" This album tries to answer that question. And, boy, do they go above and beyond their goal. After listening to the album, I think the question should have really been, "How does the earth sound?" Period.
Patrick Canavan and Alar Pahapill did an exquisite job creating this album. Using drums, percussion, violins, keyboards and vocals, they bring forth a sound that emulates sounds of the world beautifully. I checked out the list of percussion instruments used in the making of this recording. If you can crash it, bang it or make any sound off it by hitting it, it was used: metal pipes, sandpaper, cowbells, dumbeks, egg shakers, U20s and much, much more.
The first track, "Morning," greets you with light drumming, as the Earth dawns a new day. Canavan on the keyboards adds a melody that lets you envision animals and people awakening to greet the coming day. "Genesis" begins with a keyboard solo that evokes thoughts of the wind blowing across an empty field. The long drawn out notes on the keyboard mimic the path of a wind where nothing exists and everything is possible.
"Sky, Stones, and Bones" have various percussion instruments trying to mimic the playing of stones and bones. Sandpaper and drums take on the role of stones being pounded against each other; sticks mimic the clacking of bones rattling against each other. I'm not sure where the "Sky" plays into this particular piece, but it does have a nice ring to it.
The rest of the album is delightful to hear. They make good use of mixing percussion instruments with a few other select instruments. The music is light to medium, a nice album to play in your living room on a rainy day.
This album is a collective work of Pat Canavan, Gary Lalonde (Honeymoon Suite) and the concepts behind Ken Kirkby's Isumataq painting exploring native issues , specifically about the Inuit. People of the Caribou is an adaptation of the Farley Mowat book.
