Whyrl… Elementz of Poi…

Elementz of Poi... PR000s "Modulating between the keys of B and A flat, keys of B and A flat... And resolving itself in E!" Louis Balfour, Jazz Club host... A piano being pushed out of a window, a cacophony of sounds clashing and then into a smoother groove... A bumble bee floating on the winds of change... A 3-note double bass and squashed beats... Elementz of Poi was recorded in Lower Broughton round the turn of the Millennium by Carl, Cassian and myself... We had serious fun creating it...   The art isn't what we produce... The painting, music, film or words created are simply an echo of life, capturing this, The Eternal Moment in which we exist. The real art IS that moment that we share together. The real art is you and me... This ain't a release, a top ten single or a one hit wonder... It's a statement, it's a view into the world of our creativity... I used to send this tune to A&R folks at record labels and mostly got ignored, occasionally I'd get a reply saying "It's not our kinda thing..." Or "It'd be difficult to 'monetise' this..." Ok-ok, I get it and maybe running a label now I can see the reasoning behind those points... But that's my point, we just make tunes and get them out there... Free to be what they are, little moments of time that we experience... I started Poi because I wanted to be in a position to release tunes that I and others have composed, tunes that wouldn't see the light of day otherwise... So, there's no fanfare here, no big launch... You'll get to hear a tune we made recently that is, let's say, 'easier on the ear'... The Purpose Of Instinct is survival... Expressing ourselves through creativity helps us to survive and enables us to share and live in and through the Eternal Moment... Geo, Manchester February 2015...Elementz of Poi
