"Nördinörd" He was once a long time ago Citizen who played- Citizen who learned- Citizen who stayed, and believed. Citizen who trusted, was open. What is once, now open, that (which long ago) was closed- closer now, than before. Let, let it, let it put you Let it put you in an electronic dream: a memorial for the dead. Let, let it, let it put you Let it put you in an electronic dream, an electro-chemical dream: dream, dream, dream... (text and music by Istvan Peter B'Racz)

"Shifting and Drifting" Hey what's that flying above? That aint no peace-loving dove. What fiery wings call the day with a bill that none wants to pay Can't run, it knows the truth in its eyes there's not much to do eyes closed and hiding away might keep them monsters at bay keep shifting, and drifting moving on aimlessly, for someday you'll find the key that opens the door to eternity Hell being what do you say? one's soul is a big price to pay. Just trash that forbidden fruit from the vampires dressed up in suits don't run they know the truth in their eyes there's not much to do eyes closed and hiding away might keep them monsters at bay keep shifting, and drifting just moving on aimlessly and keep looking for the key that opens the door- (all text and music by Istvan Peter B'Racz)

"Lunarbug" One night in a strange dream, I saw a pair of distant eyes. They looked at me with lunar-green beams, pierced through into my mind. Double-beams, brilliant, bite green, unseats my soul at night a mirror within a mirror becomes my theme-park ride and I wonder where it came rom, and how it all began yes, I wonder where it came from and how it all began These eyes, they began to show me a different point of view: and the epic story that they told me was as as old as the morning dew Double-beams-brilliant bite-green unseams the soul at night a mirror within a mirror becomes our theme park ride And I wonder where it came from, and how it all began, Don't you wonder where it came from and how it all began? (short piano interlude) Rise up from a deep sleep that seemed centuries old leave that endless hall of mirrors, which keeps the story untold Double-beams-brilliant bite-green unseats the soul at night slow passage on the river...of life's greatest divide and I wonder where it came from and how it all began don't you wonder where it came from and how it all began?

"Too Much Space" Where are you? He is waiting for you to Come and meet him in a place You agreed on, a nice place For a meeting of the minds (an example of our times) When he calls you: about-face! Now, he sees you in that place... [I can't go there, too much space... for a breather] Where are you? She is waiting for you to Come and meet her In a place you agreed on (A nice space), For a meeting of the minds (An example of our times) When she calls you: about-face Now, she sees you in that place... [I can't go there, too much space for a breather, to much space…] (interlude) Where are you? I am waiting for you to Come and meet me in a place We agreed on, (a nice space), For a meeting of the minds (An example of our times) When you call me: about-face! Now, I see you in that place! [I can't go there: too much space for a breather…too much space…] Now I see you in that place [I can't go there too much space for a breather-] (all text and music by Istvan Peter B'Racz)

"Tinman" Tinman walks down the road, gazing up at the starlight sky: a star that once called his own is now a twinkle in some else's eye. He stops by a moonlit rose-garden, and tries to remember the sweetness: tears roll down his rusty cheeks, when all he smells is emptiness. What is a rose to Tinman? Its a place-holder of memories. He opens the door in his chest, and places it in a nest of sleeping bees. Tinman keeps on walking hoping the sun will never rise, for once the sun has reclaimed the sky, he'll only see: his own desolation... his own desolation... his own desolation... …so, Tinman runs from the sun- he keeps on moving north- because, he knows if he thaws: he'll feel again… …that way he'll never have to feel… …a star that he once called his own: is, now, so far away- ...so far… ...so far... ...so far away. …knowing the sweet scent of a rose, in the noonday sun... …knowing the sweet scent of a rose, in the noonday sun... …so…far… (all text and music by Istvan Peter B'Racz)

about

This is a live concert that took place June 6th 2014 at the Neighborhood Music School in New Haven CT. These songs/lyrics all came from dreams. Essentially its one big multi-movement work, alternating with electronic "dreams" of the songs themselves. I played piano, and sang, as well as performed live electronics. My voice has been likened to a cross between a drunken Neil Young and Nick Drake love-child.

Thanks to the Neighborhood Music School in New Haven, CT for hosting this concert. It was recorded in the Recital Hall very basically with a H4n on the floor in front of the sound system/stage, there is some audience noise, and applause only at the end.
