Temple Redux

 

 

 

TEMPLE REDUX
a new world music album

I’m not afraid of your suffering
I’m not afraid of your joy
I’m not afraid of your hunger, your desire
I’m not afraid of your rage
I’m not afraid of your love
I’m not afraid of your lies … or your truths
or of the prisons you choose to live inside
I see you
I feel you
I need you
I love you

THE STORY BEHIND TEMPLE REDUX
temple redux is 25 years in the making

in 1995/96, I received a Toronto Arts Council grant and a FACTOR loan
to do a new world music album
I called it temple

having to rush it’s completion
(because FACTOR gave me a deadline to deliver CDs)
it fell short, even having taken 2 years
seeds were however planted

I’ve dissected & remixed (3rd time)
now here in 2020 finished

my first inspiration came from having watched
a scorsese film years earlier
called ‘last temptation of christ’
and the soundtrack blew me away
I bought my first CD player that summer (1988)
and listened to peter gabriel’s ‘passion’
endless times, fascinated
several years, then even decades later
and finally

temple redux
