Several years ago, Hiroshi Suda sent me a Macromedia Flash Player file of a multi-media promo for Soft Dangerous Shores. It’s a beautiful thing, made all the more beautiful because “Fireroad (for Two)” plays throughout it. Towards the end, a statement – presumably from Chris – appears on the screen. I’ve captured (most) of it here:
These are not really songs. Each song is more like a little clip, a picture. The whole record is more like a little road movie. Each song has a cinematic quality if you “listen” to it like a visual picture. I would rather call it cyber folk blues film shorts than a singer/songwriter album.
