Davi Det Hompson (1939–1996) was an artist with whom I collaborated over the years. In 2018, I released an album of songs co-written with him. This page contains links to a few videos from that album, along with other ephemera from those times. His name here is a link to a Wikipedia page detailing his life and work.
about Time Region ...
When Davi Det gave me the lyrics for Time Region, he explained that he had based it on a vintage sex manual he bought in a second-hand store.
Perhaps concerned about the implications of a second-hand sex manual, he modified it by replacing all the “dirty words” with non-dirty ones. I thought that was a good idea, but I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do for music.
After thinking about it for few decades, I finally wrote the music, then after deciding to engage with the spirit of the project by rewriting my composition, I replaced all the blue notes in it with non-blue ones.
I hoped the end result would be a work suitable for all ages and all moods, and effective in all time zones.
When I presented the finished piece to Daisy Press, she used her limitless interpretational skills to replace all the missing sexiness and blueness with her own particular brand of military-Klezmer pseudo-sincere seductiveness, which totally separated the endurance and thus made it irresistible to me.
For the best results, do as I do and listen to this song with your mind partially or wholly closed.
