Do I like the mystique surrounding Diesel Trampoline ? Perhaps..
The name "Diesel Trampoline" stems from the Mechanical Stitching which goes into the crafting of the songs which contrasts with the Rhythm & Jounce.
I'm an artist
I'm a poet
I'm a musician
Most of all, I just want to bring a moment's joy and make you feel something.
Not Really, 'just loving what I do, working hard and I let the Art do its own bidding..
Welcome to my music website, original Folk music to keep your mind on its toes and your feet on the beat.
Music resonates with us at all ages. Even as unborn babies there is credence to the claim that we are weaned onto rhythm as we register the beating of our mother's heart. And why is that great songs seem to have vague familiarity about them, even for songs we have never heard before? Instinct perhaps.. Love for music seems to have been favoured by evolution and/or Creator(s) and could explain why at one time of another, we all have wanted to move, even the most unlikely parts of our body, to the sound of a good song.
And what about music and its more distant origins? The driving forces behind music and our affinity for it, is likely a combination of the soul's desire and the enigma that is our sentience ("I think therefore I am"). Sentience has had an expansive influence in the variety of music genres and lyrics too now are being stylelised to these genres. Music has been led down the path to where it is used as to tell and re-tell stories (how traditional folk originated), about feeling, do's and don'ts, political discord to name only a few. And the soul-seeker in all of us can't help but identify with music's message, and even in worst cases it can be taken with a pinch of salt.
But by no means is music an affliction only to man - since many amongst the animal kingdom were making music way before our ancestors struck a bone and liked the sound of it. Could we dare say that music is somewhat universal .. "From the Ether" itself..
And once a song has a place in our eclectic minds, whether it be known to others, written and published or even just residing unsung in our consciousness isn't it still a property of the Ether? Is it not our duty as much as our desire to release it back "To the Ether"?
