Some time back, I invited a few very special friends and highly accomplished World-class musicians into our apartment in Vienna where I was living at the time; I also invited a small groups of friends as ‘audience’ and we improvised an evening of poetry & music and recorded it “live” for the occasion and for CD.
“Moving On!” is one of the ‘live’ & improvised performance pieces from that evening.
The absolutely amazingly talented, fun and extremely proficient – Jozef Lupták (cello/human beatbox, vocal sound…)
The passionately-explosive, yet oh-so-tender and totally brilliant – Willi Platzer (percussion, bells…)
And, – The ‘outrageously-skilled, expert-musician & artist extraordinaire – Martin Moro (Guitars, flutes, whistles & production).
The ‘band of brothers’ is completed by myself – Danny Scott (poetry, lead vocal narrative, vocal soundscaping).
As with all the tracks on the “Only When It’s Time” album, ‘Moving On’ is improvised; we had no idea what we were going to do with this particular text that I had written. – We really had a lot of fun with this particular one and I just wanted to really acknowledge and honour these dear, precious people and highly skilled musician-artists and friends. I hope you enjoy! / Danny.
“Go” – leave, somewhere else,
Destination: ‘New’ –
Journey, travel, follow a path,
A final pushing through;
Walking away, walking toward-
Crossing the line, burying the sword’
Moving on- tears and singing,
Wings to fly- new beginning(s);
Result of circumstance?
Changing of direction?
A sense (of…)
Simply say, if you want me to stay-
Whisper, shout or scream,
Obeying the call
Believing and trusting the dream;
“Go”– leave, follow the heart
Journey, travel, uproot, depart,-
Somewhere without you… ?
I’m moving on…
