|A Dream Made Real|
(words & music by Eric J. Blohm)
Left to my own devices at such an early age
I was drawn to the endless sky above
All through the passing seasons, and turnings of the page
I would fall in the perfect arms of love
Arms upraised, hands to the sun
No words for the Joy I would feel
I now strike the chords and the drums
All for a dream made real
Out upon the ocean, a dolphin breaks the wave
I would drown in the beauty of the sea
High up in the mountains, an eagle starts his dive
I would soar an eternity of trees
Gathering now in circles, heed the promise made
all is known under a canopy of stars
Now as we call the quarters and guardians of the way
Gaia calls to the heart of who we are

A Dream Made Real
(by Eric J. Blohm)
Audience Count: 8,101
At this writing, I'm about 75% finished with a full length CD titled Bridge The Distance. (Currently a 5 song demo cd-r is available) It's (admittedly) an odd collection of New Age, Rock and Middle-Eastern style music that I've recorded over the last 2 years or so.
It's mostly instrumental, with the exception of two tracks, one of which is presented here, A Dream Made Real.
This song is about the joy of finding the true path home. While I was dedicating myself to Wicca, the Lord and Lady, the Sun and Moon, and the Earth and Sky, I realized that I've had these feelings all my life. I held these things in high regard long before I was able to put a name to my path.
The instrumental intro (up until where the vocals come in) was recorded a few years ago and sat unfinished. I had started writing the lyrics recently, and had a chord progression and melody to go with it. Around the same time, I was rifling through old tapes and MIDI files and re-discovered this intro. As luck would have it, the two fit together in the same tempo and key, so I began re-recording the intro with much better sounds than I had before, and arranging the whole song based on the pieces I had. Two lessons were learned here: No idea is a bad idea, and don't toss anything out.
At my soundclick.com page, I've added a new piece called On The Dunes, Beneath The Stars, Part 1. It's the first of a 3 part suite.
Recorded: Recorded at home in a rather cramped spare room
Guests/Players: Es Solo Mio :-)
Technical Notes: Ahh, the magic of multi-track digital recording. All parts were played by me with the assistance of the wonderful sounds of my KORG X2 , Roland V-Drums and a PC with Sonar.
Artist Profile: I began playing drums in 3rd grade. I played in marching bands, stage bands, and drum corps all through school. I've played in a wide variety of bar bands over the years, and picked up piano and keyboards along the way. A few years ago, I decided that all of those playing experiences had to have a result of some kind, that I should find a voice of my own.
