Synchronic – a state in which two or more people or things move or happen together at the same time and speed Synchronicities are also incidents of spiritual significancethat ask us to momentarily dampen our self-obsession and consider the possibility of the Divine. Synchronistic experiences leave us with a curious sense that we should pay attention. And we did pay attention. We had to. The Pandemic made us pay attention. After several twists and turns due to the pandemic, this recording happened when…and how…it was supposed to happen.
Covid-19 also spawned avenues to new ways of creativity. We all had to dig in deep to find ways to survive and to create. Covid separated all of us physically but our urge to create, to connect, to be part of something larger, to contribute to something remained. In other words, our essence stayed strong. But the world was still spiking with the virus. It was like being, no living, in a dream state. In a Dwam attempts to depict this stupor musically with a simple haunting melody. The album comments on living through the pandemic. Travelin’ thru, Speak, Let Go, The Arbitrator, and Meditation #18 all comment on the situation. Ming’s Things, written in honor of Charles Mingus, and Rhythm Jump remind us to have some fun, find some fun, some relief, while we wait for complete healing.
