Awaken to Dream
A New Age Lament by Jim Obermeyer
About the Album:
Awaken to Dream is an original work by Jim Obermeyer. It is a series of short New Age type pieces created without any specific point in mind. All the sounds emanate from a digital piano with all the bells and whistles. Jim likes to compose his music in the early hours of the morning, when it’s quiet, long before the sunrise. Inspiration comes from the past, whether it is good or bad. Mostly it’s a combination of both, a reflection of life embodied in sound.
The title “Awaken to Dream” is from the past. It was the brainstorm of a man I knew named Murray Braverman. Murray owned a bicycle shop called Murita Cycles many years ago in Staten Island, NY.
Awaken to Dream was originally intended to be the title of a movie by Murray’s son Barry. It was about a lost soul, back in the early 1970’s, who was hitchhiking across America with his guitar in hand trying to find himself. It was a novel idea back then but the movie was scrapped because of production problems and Barry didn’t have enough money to get out of the State of New Jersey. Barry later did another movie about Murray called “Murita Cycles” which aired on PBS on June 17th, 1979.
Murray has passed on, so I dedicate this work in memory of him. By the way, he would have absolutely hated it!
