The Making of “Memory of the Future” – Future Memories

2021-02-23T16:07:17+11:00February 14th, 2019|Categories: Blog|Tags: , |

From the song "Memory of the Future" comes the album title Future Memories – the view of the future from the past. I’ve always been fascinated by this concept. The vision of the future is always distorted by the situation of the present. Of course, events unfold in unpredictable ways making any notion of [...]

Spotify classifies Space March as Deep Neo-synthpop – with “Deep” probably being a euphemism for obscure. The classification is based on an algorithmic deduction and seems to have a strong relationship to the artists from, what was known as, the Modern Synthpop scene of the late 1990s and early 2000s – a scene [...]

The Making of “Emotional Wreck” – Future Memories

2021-02-23T16:08:54+11:00January 8th, 2019|Categories: Blog|Tags: , |

In many ways, "Emotional Wreck" is an unconventional pop song. The vocals are subservient to the production, as opposed to the more typical converse. It's not a terribly positive or empowering message. There's some unsettling discord in the instrumental parts. The arrangement has an odd structure, and so on... Despite all this, it's a [...]

The Making of “Cursed by a Dream” – Future Memories

Some creative people make a successful career from their art. Most don’t. It’s not uncommon for me to get asked the question as to why I continue to make music over so many years given my relative obscurity. The answer is – because I’m compelled to do so! It’s an obsessive pursuit to try [...]

The Making of “Möbius Man” – Future Memories

For my post on “Time Is Elastic”, I asserted that Physics is not common subject matter for a song. Well, I’d argue that Geometry is an even more obscure proposition! The Möbius strip is a surface with only one side and one edge. You can make your own Möbius strip by taking a rectangular [...]

The Making of “Sweden” – Future Memories

Ever since my second Space March album, I’ve always included a “geo-romantic” track where I incorporate a country reference into the lyrics and song title. To date we’ve had “Canadian Girls”, “American Girl”, “Norway” and now, “Sweden”. I’m also currently working on a song for my next album with lyrics and a title based [...]
