965 : Maniacal music….

Spousey and I were watching a recorded concert of DMB yesterday, and we have to admit, its the most manically creative music process we have seen…..its almost like Raga music (my other pet passion…esp. the Hindustani)….subject to last minute improvisation by the singer/artiste.

It makes for an engaging process to see these shows live (recorded or otherwise)….its almost as if, the artiste is playing a little peek-a-boo with the listeners…..almost prompting them, teasing them  towards his/her next improvisation.

If you ever watch a live(recorded) concert do take a few moments to notice, how before every song…the artiste/band wont announce anything…they shall play a few riffs….and it will be a brief period of about 30-90 seconds before the audience recognizes which song is going to be played….at the moment of realization, you shall hear a loud gasp and applause come from the audience….a la moment of epiphany.

(Am listening to Crash into me, as my poet friend Fuzzy says, it has awesome lyrics….poetry in motion….)

Oh I watch you there
Through the window
And I stare at you
You wear nothing but you
Wear it so well
Tied up and twisted
The way I'd like to be
For you, for me, come crash
Into me
