A word from David about Transformations;
I have recently completed the creation of a concept album entitled Transformations, which is both a spiritual autobiography and hopefully, a spiritual vessel. The songs from Transformations have deep, emotional and spiritual meaning. The songs from this CD are meant to be heard sequentially for full effect.
I enjoy writing songs which emanate from the deeper recesses of the universal human mind. The CD "Transformations" makes use of Jazz, Rock, Broadway and Progressive Rock in a format which attempts to honestly express intense spiritual/emotional experiences spanning a lifetime. Transformations is a CD meant to be truly "heard" and savored.
Some additional musicians who play on Transformations include Les Brooke , Tom Hannah, Tim Vargo, Andy Vargo, Cynthia Lugo, Andrea Bok, David Coonrod, Ned Clark, Kevin Peters, Kristin Sorensen and William O'Connell. I want to extend special thanks to Arthur Kills Straight Putnam who wrote and recorded the native flute song following each composition. Arthur's segments represent "Spirit" which is best heard when the mind is most quiet.
Transformations Cover Message ;
"Sometimes, in the midst of a perfectly ordinary day, one is unexpectedly flooded by the magnificence of “what is.” Perhaps that moment of awareness and clarity arrives while watching a storm or absorbing a piece of art or kneeling with intention in a church. If blessed, echoes of the past and visions of the future fade from existence as the unknowing silence of the infinite present emerges. With patience and grace, one comes to know the incredible richness of “what is” as a revelation of God’s face and the mind is forever transformed into a mirror of creation." . .
