Promoting SeaStars 2007 in North America

Ivan Chew - ProfileThat’s right.

We’re known in North America.

OK, so only in San Francisco.

And only to about 20 people.

I gave away the SeaStars 2007 MP3 CDs to the Davies Forum participants.

Students, librarians, audience. And also some people at Techsoup.

Showed them the Dolphins Galaxia music video at the end of the talk.

Two of the students (Lulu and Steven) mentioned the album.

I don’t know if they’ve listened to the songs yet.

And I mailed a package to Jude who’s residing in the US at the moment (who gave his review here).

Let’s see if we will get a call from a music producer, Adrian. LOL

Firefly

Adrian Loo - Profile

This song is about flying free and igniting your imagination (or the other way around). There must be more to our lives than just working for money, out of fear and just being the “salary man”, looking forward to the weekend. The days must be seamless and we must be mindful and have no duality. The only way is to be free.

I felt a song coming to my mind and decided to plug in the guitar. The strings had rusted over Jan and Feb so I restrung them and gave the guitar an oil rub… (lemon some more). So the firefly theme is easy to identify with I think – fireflies in a pitch dark night, sitting in a boat and going along a riverbank lined with mangrove trees and seeing the fireflies flying about. It just pure wonderment that we feel I guess when we see such things and maybe that kind of feeling makes us appreciate being free and letting our imagination take flight. Well for those out there who are feeling entrapped in anyway (and I do sometimes), at work or in any situation, here’s a song about taking flight and setting yourself free.

The song of course needs improvement but I am happy with the idea of the fireflies. Shrek, I mean Ivan, will do that… ha! His currently in Frisco now, giving a talk, an invited talk at a university… (phoar… big time he is).
