As a dancer, I see music and all of the shapes, lines, spaces and synergies within the moving music molecules. Jerry Leake’s “Cubist” CD sparks combustible creative energy, the context of which changes every time I encounter it … like “Aldebaran,” which starts with a ‘big bang’ on the tam tam, simple glass chimes, flows into jingles of hanging and Tibetan bell choruses, balafon, vibraphone and glockenspiel interludes, and timbres of low log drum and tabla (body shakin’) grooves. My “invisible dancer” responds and anticipates, expands, contracts, releases, spirals up/down, falls and recovers…whirling cosmic images within a rich musical tapestry that just won’t let her rest. “Cubist” will certainly inspire interesting and novel choreographies, the world round.
(OK, I experienced the entire project, start -to – finish; I may be a bit biased… but check it out on CD Baby! Maybe you’ll agree!)
