Final Drum Music Download

Dear Friends,
I’m still overwhelmed at the response by all of you eager to participate (3200 and counting!) in this project of peace,
The Final Drum. It is still available for download
and only awaits your contribution.
Let me reiterate how important it is that collaborators
needn’t be musicians. Voices saying something in protest
(see the post below) will weave beautifully into the immense tapestry of this venture when it is finished.
I look forward to everyone’s unique creative perspective.

Dear friends and fellow musicians,
My new CD is just around the corner and I’m offering one and all an open invitation to join me for an exclusive performance on the album with the song “The Final Drum”, a free flowing arrangement written in protest of the wars we are ensnared in and the involvement of our children in these wars.

This composition is a raging storm of emotion and welcomes all improvisatory and heartfelt (musical or not…say it and say it loud!) reaction. I have recorded the basic track and the MP3 file is posted below, along with the lead sheet and those who wish to take part can import the file, record along with it (any taping quality is acceptable) and send it back, where it will be included in the final synthesis of the recording. Join me in this unprecedented musical protest to our incursions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Feel free to contact me for more details.

Right Click (“save file as” to download) or left click (to listen and record along with your own software) from the Quicktime file below.
Feel free to email me if you have further questions.

  1. No more skulls crushed under boot, no more spirits drowned in oppression, no more hope lost to the souless face of an ideology. Peace and Love are not a passive, feel good cop-out but a grave responsibility, a call to action. One does not love a child by saying so and forgetting her as one does not love the world by saying it and doing nothing. End the wars, end the greed driven profit mongering, end stavation of bellies, mind and spirits, end the destruction of the environment. It is possible. This is a class revolution. The oppressed of the world must rise together and reclaim their birth rights. In the United States, there is no inherit right to shelter or food. It is illegal to be homeless, but you are not permitted to any shelter unless you own the earth or pay the owner. The same is true of food. Remember, this is the richest nation in history and there is hunger, homelessness, and hopelessness, and when I think of our excess in the global perspective, I stand dumbfounded, confused, overwhelmed, but neither broken nor defeated.
