How many listens are you willing to give music? I know that if I don''t find what I''m looking for quickly, I tend to move on. It''s impatient human nature, I guess. But sometimes music creeps up on you and reveals it''s message. I don''t think anyone can tell you how a particular piece of music is going to make you feel, but hopefully you feel something real. With that said, I want you to give this music a chance because what else is as powerful and valued a contribution to this planet than an honest piece of music (other than love)? Sounds like a tall order, but music is simple; it touches like no other inanimate object can. Are you still reading? Good, because I want to leave you with a nice thought. Music is the sound of human expression and when it spills out of one''s heart freely, it becomes a magic potion that can be used over and over.
This album is called Ojai, it was created by Nathan Khyber and Clark Stiles during 10 days in June, 2005.
Album Liner Notes:
On June 10th, 2005 Nathan Khyber and Clark Stiles set out to attempt a musical exercise with the hopes that an entire album would be created. The concept was to rent a house out of town, set up a studio and record 10 songs in 10 days, one per day. The songs were to be written from scratch, recorded and completed by the end of each day. No song was to be re-opened after its day was over. There was to be no communication with the outside world, no television, no phone calls, no leaving the moment.
On June 11th, day one arrived and the first song was born, Condition Down. They continued for 10 days creating a body of work that is this album, Ojai. The song order represents each day as follows: 6,4,1,2,8,7,9,5,3,10. They fasted during days 2 & 3; then they ate purely organic vegetarian meals at The Farmer and The Cook. They ingested poison on Day 7. On day 10 they wrote their fair-well song, initially titled Goodbye Ojai.
