Here is a video showing the reaction of Ruben Buijs’ first time listening to any Steven Wilson song. In this case, it’s “Drive Home” from the album “The Raven That Refused To Sing (and Other Stories)”. I encourage you to watch it all of the way through as I think you may have a similar response.
Here is a song that I first started writing back in 2011, thus the rather plain title “2011 09 01”. The title and date associated with it has no meaning; it’s simply the format I use when creating project files.
Yeah, it sometimes takes awhile to finish a piece of music. 🙂
When I write, sometimes a bass line inspires me. At other times a particular sound inspires me. It’s different for every song. If I remember correctly, this one started with the bass line and grew from there.
It’s only at the demo stage and I don’t think I’ll take it any further. Nevertheless, I figured why not let it see the light of day. So here it is. I hope you enjoy it.
This is the third in a planned series of videos that I’m producing. They are limited to 60 seconds selected from a longer section of music. It’s simply an effort to “Stop Thinking and to Start Doing” and have some fun in the process.

Here is a live version of Adam Holzman’s Moog Voyager solo on “Regret #9,” with the Steven Wilson Band. Great stuff!

Prince died today, aged 57. He was a major musical influence to me as I’m sure he was to others.
R.I.P. Mr. Nelson.
In tribute to the late David Bowie, Steven Wilson and his band cover “Space Oddity”.
I continue to be perplexed as to why Steven isn’t more well-known for his musical achievements. He is an authentic creative force in a world full of PR created entertainers.
Whew! It’s been awhile since I last posted. Thanksgiving, Christmas, a new year have all come and gone since my last communique.
Despite it being wintertime, January is turning out to be a good month music-wise with two of my favorites putting out new work this month. Last week, Steven Wilson released an EP, “4 1/2”, a sort of intermezzo between his last full album and the next.
And tomorrow Dream Theater release their latest, “The Astonishing”, a double-album clocking in a wee-bit over 2 hours (yes!).
Needless to say, I’ll be setting aside some quality time to digest all of this sonic goodness. Until next time!
