Out of the Mire

Peace People.

“Out of the Mire”, The instrumental intro piece for the RuAch album was one of the first concrete idea’s we had for the album, When we used to jam this I used to call it the South American song, Martin our drummer naturally came up with a latin style feel on the grooves, & his energy on the drums was exerted with such a high energy to the extent I would always feel a sympathy to his drum kit in how hard he used to hit it whenever we Jam it. Out of the Mire Can symbolise where we were coming from through life at the time, & I only found it appropriate to begin the record with that title, It’s one of those numbers that will create a heavy party vibe, especially when we play it live in concert.

Now we will find a huge gap between when we had the blue print for that piece & when we actually got to record the track for the album.

If you read the previous blog; “River nun” was our first recording for the record, Out of the mire would have been the 2nd however literally the following week after we recorded River nun, I had a call from the venue we were rehearsing in & the management said we should look to find another practice venue, So unfortunately we were in limbo for a few months, We had to find the right spot, The album sleeve tells that story, Eventually a lock in was found, But by the time we got the lock in so many musical idea’s had already piled up for recoding, But we knew we would eventually come to revisit & record “Out of the mire”, & this became one of the last songs we recorded before publishing the album.

Since the recording new musicians have been coming in for the group & have implemented cool new idea’s to it, This one will definitely be one of my favourite tracks to perform live.

River Nun

River Nun, was the first song written for the Album RuAch, This was also the first song we recorded for it, This song was birthed through a jam we had which I originally titled “Liberty”, at this time I was in the process of looking for a Sax player, a sax player Carmine Manfredi came into the Picture, & the second time we played together I hit the record button on the console and Me on electric guitar, Martin on drums, & Carmine on Sax, played and recorded the track live & the foundation of the album was set!, I later on added Bass & after hearing the music I got inspired with the lyrics, recorded the vocals & “River Nun” was born.

My dream one day is to go to the Nun River, & make a live music video for the number, Dreams come true!.

LYRICS:

As we talk we are wasting away,
Wall’s they stand while we sit and wait,
for the rays of the sun to bring us life…

We wonder what was the cause of the wars,
Angels fall but no broken bones,
Tree’s of greed who planted the seed…

What is left but the prophecies,
Heads are rolling down a parted Sea,
Land divide themselves the Rivers flow…

Ships are built and they start to trade,
Guns are made, Now your a slave.
It is Morning as they leave through the River Nun.

The track is 6 min 31 sec, Though in concert the version is likely to be longer ha-ha.

RuAch NEWS: 03/04/2017. Thank YOU!

Peace & blessings family,

The inception of spring is here, I am looking at the name of this season like an action word, as I see this is the time we should all spring up, and sour high within all of our works.

The first message I posted this year was “”be healthy””, This was a very critical message I felt I needed to share, Because no health equals no productivity, I had to make sure if I want to be successful with any production I have to maintain an optimum level of health. And this has been very much the case thus far, I have worked with so many individuals, and every project has been made easy simply because I kept my mind and body clean.

This message today is simply a message to show our gratitude & thankfulness for those who have supported us especially regarding the RuAch album project, which has been taken in very well by the public, we have managed to create notoriety within certain sources in the industry without even doing 1 concert, which is almost unheard of, Your support is also enabling to build the equipment we need in order to go on the road, and this will happen very soon. Within the past few months I have been meticulously searching for musicians that can bring the music to life on stage, I am happy to say I have found some brilliantly gifted musicians, who are bringing great musical ideas to the table. We have a great team together, The names of the individuals will be announced when we start the promotion for our shows.

Also note the first few shows will not be promoted, So unless you know the individuals within the group chances are you wont know when and where we are playing. But will definitely keep you posted on the official shows, This is most certainly going to be a thrilling journey for both the listeners in the audience and for us the musicians, We can’t wait.

We have also just reached 10 thousand followers on Vonj productions, I’m giving thanks to everyone who has supported us on here since the beginning. My aim has always been to try and inspire you the people positively through sound, soul and spirit, and this will never change.

so stay tuned people.

It’s time to spring!

Peace & blessings

Mind & Soul – Correct intensity

 

Harmony & Strength family.

A brief update…

correct intensity

(at the moment I am putting my mind & soul at test, there is an album, a documentary and a book in the works, the theme for this will be revealed soon. I see the world in dire straits so there has never been a better time to bring love, beauty and integrity to the masses, I am privileged to be independent and free to do this at this point. this is not a mission for the faint hearted, the research, the studying, travelling, and the studio time for this project is intense, but my passion will never fail, even though some may say and some may think this is “mission impossible”, I am in my realm and in no rush. the mission will be complete for my intent is real sincere)

Even though my time on my websites will be currently minuscule I shall try to respond to comments whenever free space avails.  when the works are done, I’ll be back with some good messages for you family.

meantime I hope you enjoy what has been already published, as always I thank you all for your support.

Love & prosperity to all.

Vonj

 

 

 

Do not give up – coming soon – & much more…

Blessings there family.

Rolling from the post I sent earlier today, I would like to introduce you to more Raw videos showing the musical process.  You see many would feel somewhat embarrassed showing half Idea’s, But not me, as a matter of fact I feel proud to showcase this side of things, The evolution process of anything is usually kept behind closed doors to the public, but I think it is critical for people to understand that nothing great appears magically all at once.

So before you see the space shuttle I will first take you through each elemental,  the orbital manoeuvring system, fuselage, computer station, engine powerhouse  etc. so that when the album is out “one day” you will understand how it fly’s.

Love Vonj

River Nun – coming soon – short message – &…

Greetings family

For those who have recently joined “Vonj Productions”, I love you all and I appreciate your support,  as you know I have been trying my best to keep you on substantial information in the aim to keep you inspired.

From the 2nd of November last year (2014) I have been working on compositions for the next album project, but before any recordings I chosen to take you behind the scene’s, giving you glimpses on what is partaking “a thing which many artists fear in case ideas are stolen on the process” Ha. in the meantime I have been presenting a song each week off the 4 albums I have released.

On the website if you click on the tab “The Dawn of something special” you will not miss an update on the upcoming album project.

River Nun “1 track”, glimpses through the crack of a window Pane.

Love Vonj

Segments of a composition

Harmony family, I thought I would share this video with you, this shows another dimension on the process of composition; straight out Jamming!. For the new comers, This is a continuation of behind the scene’s footage on the future album; there is a lot of work yet to put in…I am hoping when this is all done with I can come and play a show in a city near you.

Peace & love
