ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
in recent months, this songwriter has given preference to the use of a nylon classical guitar, my tunes suggesting, more than ever, a marriage between Paul Simon and Bob Dylan. The completion of a song comes at a price - a difficult emotional and time-consuming struggle with the blending of lyrics and melody, such that, together, they merge to form an heretofore unknown creation. In my struggles to create coherent and satisfying musical meanings, a melody emerges first, then a search for lyrics, and both are gradually forged into a song, sometimes initially resembling the awkwardness of an arranged marriage; but with hard work, the pair begin to form a loving relationship. The thematic content of a song often remains unknown, almost to the end of the creative process, for which even the songwriter, himself, is unaware of what manner of creature he is gestating. Interestingly, a simple adjustment of volume or reverb, or the addition or deletion of a few intruding measures, or a panning of an instrument or vocal, may sometimes turn a mediocre tune into a beloved one (speaking only for myself, for whom the songs toll). New York City is a great city. I will even venture to say that New York City is the greatest of cities, a dynamic forward-moving amalgam of places and people, with strata of complexity that one can ever know. At times, especially within the vastness of New York City's disparate cultures and neighborhoods, one can feel very alone here. But it's always my home here...peter j stein
