Call in to speak with the host
Lawrence's new album will be released at the end of January and is called "Method Music." He will also be telling all of us about he Lifehouse-Method project. Please see: http://facebook.com/MethodMusic.
His other interests include humour, health and nutrition and many fields beginning from maths and music but extending further. He also has an interest in spirituality and philosophy - tending toward the Eastern rather than the Western - but applying it to contemporary living.
He is highly enthusiastic about all this, as you will see, when you listen in to this show. Here are a few snapshots of his (perhaps) radical thoughts in these areas:
In his musical creation he is reinforcing directness, expressing something simple yet affecting, using the mind as an instrument rather than as an obsession which often in the case with new music. For him, the most effective musical creation comes from a deeply stilling intention. His music is almost all tonal and melody-like (if not with a melody) - it is not an arduous assault course for the newcomer. Music for him is an ocean of exploration, the communication of internal realities through airwaves, using written scores, improvised and semi-improvised, computer-generated as well as orchestral and chamber music. The states of mind accessed through music inspire me greatly, music having been one means whereby I have and do recover from depletion, and access deeply joyful moods.
Please join us as Lawrence invites us into his world of genius.
It's good to talk.
