Our Music Makes the Big Time (or Swine, Anyway)

April 30, 2009

Buy CD from Amazon.comWhoa! NPR’s “Morning Edition” used two tracks from Roger’s SynergyDance, Vol. 1 CD yesterday (Wednesday, April 29). So they only played about 14 seconds of the CD’s first track, “Charmaine,” coming out of a report from Israel on swine flu, but it was still a great surprise. And, though the local D.C. public radio station didn’t use it, the npr.org web site says they then used two minutes of the CD’s second track, “Breeze,” as a bed during the break that most local NPR stations use for local weather or news.

If you haven’t yet heard the music on “SynergyDance, Vol. 1” yet, please give it a listen. I’ve been hearing from folks who’ve downloaded or bought the CD that it’s pretty good music for driving, cooking and working — though it originally grew out of more movement and meditative pursuits. Click on the CD graphic to go the CD’s page on Amazon; to hear samples of the tracks, once you’re on the Amazon page, follow the “Buy the MP3 album” link. It’s also available on iTunes; just search for “SynergyDance.”

Meanwhile, I’m working on some new tracks with inspired percussionist Steve Bloom and a few musicians and singers out here in Rappahannock County, Va. — while also working to start up a live radio variety show, “Ragged Mountain Radio,” also here in the foothills of the Shenandoah. Besides the abundant, breathtaking, by-the-way beauty, there are a bunch of talented musicians, actors and writers hereabouts. — Roger Piantadosi
