As for 2007/8 leisure activities, here are some pieces of music I've recorded (at home on Cubase 4) since spring 2007. You may find the 2009/10 tracks to be more complete, farther down the page...... I thought they'd be a useful adjunct to my video interests (primitive) which I have abandoned for now... Just click on the name to get the music, or right-click on the name, then select 'save target as' to prepare the download to your disk. Unless you've received a rights concession, they are intendedly available only for evaluation purposes. I hope you find them pleasing. © 1968..2012 JoeGarvey (all rights reserved).
(c) 2006/8 Music Recorded in Cubase Studio 4, these ones are only sketches, and not yet prepared for release.
Prayer (this may show as ThanksJoeSatriani in the media player, my mistake for how I labelled it)
ThanksJoeSatriani (this may show as Prayer in the media player, my mistake)
OnOurWayNow (noisy very early but amusing recording. A computer-program generated bass, and electric piano and drums)
(c) 1968..2009 Music demos recorded in Cubase 5 and Garritan Personal Orchestra.
Family is you and we (Singing by Jim Hyland, I'm still waiting to repay Jim) (shows on the media player as 'Where will this take us', mofification necessary.)
Global Bunny (Singing by Jim Hyland) (Intended to help fund research/facilites to combat breast-cancer, but no one seems to want the song, at least not the UK so far)
With your love I come alive (Singing by Jim Hyland)
Finding our way back (in preparation, lyrics impending, could become some kind of symphonic thing)
You go your way and I'll go mine (vocals on close examination may show that this is just to demo standard, though fun. Singing by Jim Hyland).
(c) 2010 Music demos recorded in Cubase 5 and Garritan Personal Orchestra.
Tautological Love ( inspired by my Daughter).
Future Tradition (distortion guitar applied to diddly I doh).
Leilea (pronounced Lee-Leea) (...my beautiful GrandDaughter)
Boots for the Baby (has to be done, gladly. The tapping is still a little clumsy, but the song will evolve when required and prioritised)
Maybe if your are an experienced musician or well positioned in the music industry you could, just by even advising occasionally, contribute wisdom to bring quite a few people back from nearly the closest thing to their graves possible?
There is a medical condition known as 'Locked In Syndrome', Wikipedia has details on it. Basically a human being can be 'locked in' to their body consequent to a stroke which damages their lower brain, largely motor functions relating to physicality. The sufferer may be totally conscious and intellectually intact but unable to say even by blinking... "yes" or "no". There may be no articulation at all. There is a local lady in the town of Carrigaline, Cork Ireland whom suffers so. People have come to her aid, such as builders making a house extension with the material facilities she requires. Another lady whom suffers from LockedIn syndrome is MichelleWheatley in the U.K. Details of global significants regarding this condition may be got from Locked-In.eu which is the central repository for the condition worldwide..
The aim of this fundraising is to provide facilitation of 'brain-monitor-driven-mobility' for the locked-in community, so that instead of them looking at a ceiling for all of their remaining lives, then they may be able to decide where they want to feasibly go in an electric wheelchair. It will also become possible for them to 'think' what tv channel and how loud they want it, and to orient their line of vision using the wheel chair so that they can appreciably enjoy tv programmes.
If it's possible to accelerate that research then I for one am inviting you to participate in your speciality...
I thought I for one could maybe craft some of a song(s) about people or someone locked-in and try to commercialise the song to raise funding/awareness of the plight of such people and push prototyping of an affordable solution, so that those suffering may imminently be logistically redeemed by this new technology, back from lack of expression and the edge of a grave, so imposed on them this far.
If they all got their medical condition the same day, it would be world headlines, but their incidence of onset of LockedIn syndrome is demographically sparse and cumulative, so without our help, they're lost to the world, unseen and in the media, largely unrepresented, even if not so in the medical world consciousness as a whole. Presently, they wait to die, and they can't even effect that even if they wanted it! By comparison, 'death row' is an elevated existence, while innocent people are constrained to within their heads unable to even say yes or no..
A possibility of one song components to date as at April 2010 may be heard here... LockedIn (this is just a very unprepared sketch yet, but features for example a startling and memorable guitar intro motif).
Alternatively or additionally we may try TheShock , a 'rockier' sound but nicely syncopated with a good swing... These are quite basic sketches and possibly nothing very like final formats. For that matter, ANY song on this page may be adapted if necessary to the cause. It's a case of what is actually to become the most causal to the public en masse to rise up and act heroically in the representation of the people who are locked-in. I'm sure than any of the songs on the page may be re-arranged to serve the purpose described, even TheStolenBaby from a parental point of view would be an apt description of what may have happened to their suffering child.
A more recent 2011/12 effort yet incomplete, is BabesGoingToRide , which is a more mainstream sound, and likely contender for the development of a single to draw the attentions of the public to the plight and near rescue by technology of the Locked-in people.
Thus any of the songs on this page and possible more by others may be the vehicle, for...
For that matter, I don't remember a song that was done simultaneously in 'multiple genre' format, to appeal to ALL of the markets simultaneously, to inform them what has happend, what is happening, and what CAN happen. People in their busy lives may like to participate just by buying THEIR preferred genre of the song.
Any possibly significant contributor, whom can contribute a skill to making the song successful will be listed as a co-author with appropriate credit published, and will be kept fully in the loop (on the mailing list). I would be grateful if any person who could contribute even an acceptable guitar riff, maybe a knowledgable lyric, a recommendation or an introduction... ...of significance, or even to apply the leverage of credibility they have or know-who they may have in the music industry, to make contact to me at JoeGarvey911@Gmail.com . Quote LockedIn in the heading so I don't miss your message.
If someone said to you especially, you're ok to join your national team in some capacity, would you hesitate, to kick a ball into a net, even to train for it? We're not talking about a coveted piece of gold here, to keep for 4 years... we're talking about human lives in football crowd proportions, not just for 4 years, but for a lifetime and thereafter for ever and ever. Now that's some prize whether you're the manager, captain, player, coach or simply wearing the jersey and clapping encouragingly from the terraces.
