Since this statement was written, Merle Austin Africa joined the ancestors. She died in prison, March 13, 1998.

Revolution is not a word but an application, it is not war but peace, it does not weaken it strengthens, revolution does not cause separation it generates togetherness, ... revolution is an activity, a generating force that continues generating, continues activating, continues togetherness, solidarity will never be realized so long as geography is imperative, solidarity is unity, without unity you can 't have revolution, ... revolution is organization just as solidarity is togetherness,... the word people should be a symbol of identity which should unite people and dispel war but to call everybody a person and go to war against people is to say that people are compelled to conflict makin peace hopeless and everything people are striving to make, to have, to be, ... if we expect to accomplish the defeat of oppression, we are going to have to understand the power of assertion.

Oak's Rose. The story behind Ethan's 3rd LP.

Sun, 03/15/2009

From a PICA Press Release...  Oaks is acclaimed ambient electronic experimentalist Ethan Rose’s third full-length, following on the 2006 release Ceiling Songs and the 2007 release, Spinning Pieces. Ethan’s music was also featured in Gus Van Sant’s latest film, Paranoid Park. Ethan explains Oaks as follows: “Over the past year I’ve been coming out to the Oaks Park Roller Rink to play and record the Wurlitzer Theater Organ that is located there. The organ dates from the 1920s and was originally housed in the Broadway Theater in downtown Portland where it was used to accompany silent films. It is currently played and maintained by Keith Fortune who has been involved with the organ and the rink for the past fifteen years. I’ve had the privilege of assisting Keith with organ repairs, which has deepened my appreciation of the instrument. Musically speaking, my primary interest with this organ has been to bring its antiquated sounds into a modern context, essentially treating it with the same sense of sonic reinterpretation that I have brought to my previous works.” 

Ethan Rose’s work reflects his interests in old technologies, new sounds, and the restless exploration of musical form. Over the past ten years he has released recordings, scored films, performed internationally, created sound installations, and worked with a variety of collaborators. Drawing from his interests in musique concrete, chance operations and American minimalism, Ethan creates shifting sound environments that merge the old with the new.  His music is electronic in nature but maintains an organic quality because of his exclusive use of acoustic sound sources. Much of his recent work has centered around instruments from eras long past, including music boxes, player pianos, and carillons. However, he is interested in pulling new sounds and ideas out of these antiquated devices rather than treating them with a sense of preservation. By bringing a carefully detailed sense of arrangement to his music, Ethan’s pieces transport the close listener to a warm and unusual place.
