“SAVE THE UNIVERSE”
Uncle Roy says, “For ‘Save The Universe’ I wanted to create a set of tunes that were not one style of rock or just heavy or just light. I wanted to have some of the musical ingredients, from several rock stylings, within the scope of the music. I wanted the recipe for this project to be more universal, with a mix of rock genres. Therefore, each tune has its own musical and lyrical difference and character from the others. There is soft guitar and screaming guitar. There are dreamy, orchestral keyboards to, thick, and rockin’ keyboards. The drums may lightly and tightly groove for a section of a tune and then, be pounding. The bass will be subtle at times and then, sometimes big and fat. Vocally, you will find the voices of the songs going from the mellow and grand to heavy rock to a little, talk-singin’ and preachin’. For every letter of the alphabet, there is a musical influence that has manipulated my musical, genetic makeup, over a few light years. The world’s music is broad, cultural, always evolving and it is what influences me musically, as well, all the time.”
The song list:
“COSMIC HAPPINESS” is a fun, alternative
“THE ISLE OF RIFF ON THE WORLD OF TONE” – this alternative rock tune opens with a tight, soaring rock motif that flows into a sweet, thick and grand alternative rock/
“A WORLD OF MIRACLES” is a mellow, beautiful, dreamy, ethereal, philosophical, thoughtful song. With a couple of harmonious, chiming guitars, a pulse, and crisp and bright vocals, the song is filled with fairytale lyrics that create visions about some of the enchanted things we all would love in our lives.
“FATHER TIME” mixes an explosive, rock beginning that, ascends into the verses, as the music takes on the magic and vibe of an old, traditional ‘pub’
“IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER” is, an alternative rock tune with a world music vibe. The tune begins with
“HOW DO WE GET TO EARTH?”
WELCOME TO THE STORY AND JOURNEY OF UNCLE ROYS SPACESHIP!!!
“After trying for a few light years of time, to repair the navigational system of my spaceship, due to a small ice particle smashing into the lens of the interstellar space guiding system, at the nose of this ship, I suddenly realized that my course direction had changed, drastically! None of the constellations or orbiting bodies were familiar. Distant solar systems were out of place in the twilight! The galaxy I was orbiting, was not, the Milky Way! I must have drifted into a wormhole while working on the repair. Which didn’t work. I need a few parts. Good thing is, at least, I found a map of our solar system and the Milky Way under my drivers seat. If I get close to home, it could help. ‘Let’s see. The map says, ‘Map of the Solar System,’ 1987..What!? What!? 1987! Oh man! This map is, ancient! Talk about, lost in space! Hopefully, I’ll meet someone out here who knows where I am, where I can get some parts and how I can return home…I guess I’ll just play some music while I survey my surroundings and give this galaxy a couple of orbits, so I can get comfy in my new neighborhood..Man! Whatever universe this is, it sure is a beautiful, sparkling place! Navigation by the stars! Oh yeah! I need some drivin’ music! Hmmm…Some of my Uncle Roy’s Spaceship music will do just fine! One thing about outer space is that, no one care’s about how loud or how long you play it! Everybody, everywhere, loves Earth music!!!” The adventure, begins…
Uncle Roy says, “I love instrumental music! From soloists to small groups to orchestral instrumentals, through a variety of music, the dynamic sensitivities within instrumental music makes me feel a rollercoaster of sensations and emotions!!! So, I thought that creating a project of some tunes with the ingredients of a few instrumental rock music genres together, would be fun! Instrumental rock, progressive rock, fusion, spacey rock, classical rock and jazz rock are all a part of the music in, ‘How Do We Get To Earth?’ There are moments of soft, sweetness and moments of roaring and throbbing sounds. There are cruising, floating rhythms that groove and heavier, driving rhythms that rock. The dreamy and bright soundscape moments will make you drift. Each tune has a different mood, feeling, atmosphere and style from the others.”
The song list:
“MOOONBEAMS AND THE COSMIC BANG” begins with a syrupy, melodious and harmonious guitar melody and sounds, shooting in the background, to the soothing rhythms being played. The music moves suddenly, to a heavy, punchy and crunchy, progressive metal rock passage of the composition and into the powerful crescendo.
“THERE IS NOTHING MORE BRIGHT THAN THE STARS AT NIGHT” is a fusion instrumental that begins with an edgy tension creating tone, into a very cool, smooth cruisin’ groove, with light textured keys and tasty, sonic guitar, throughout. The tune bounces sweetly, drifting in to get the fusion ensemble rolling. This tune cruises nicely.
“IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE MILKY WAY” is a beautiful and dreamy soundscape. The song is a pretty, flowing, melodic and rhythmic composition that has a wonderful, warm, serene feeling and quality. The composition makes you drift thoughtfully and imagine. Subtle and sweet
“FLIGHT OF THE ANCIENT ALIEN” is an energetic, progressive rock tune. This tune crescendos all the way from start to finish. The music gives you the feeling of flying with this ancient adventurer. The intertwining guitar melodies, harmonies,
I hope those in the universe, hear a little something within one or both of the projects, a tune or more, that touches them in a way that makes them happy, thoughtful, adrenalized and ready to rock the cosmos! I hope, all of you, find a tune or more you enjoy, that uplifts your soul to a state of happiness, helping you to fly to your own inner and outer space, where all the boundaries of the universe disappear and music, fills the air!!!
