Wed, Jun. 24, 9pm EDT - 'Mind of Peace' by John Banrock ("Special Edition" New Album Release!)

When I began pondering the best way to launch my new album, the answer became clear very quickly.  "Album Night".  Yes, a live performance on release night may have been the more traditional route, but ultimately I am releasing an album and wanted to present, well, the album. And so here we are.  After about a year and a half in the making I am proud to present to you my new instrumental album Mind of Peace.

Yes, a year and a half may sound like a long time to complete an album, but when placed in the proper perspective it may not seem so.  First of all I wanted to make sure that the album was not considered done until I knew that it was the best effort that I could put forth.  Furthermore I was the lone catalyst and creator behind the entire album (other than one track written and performed with longtime collaborator Lawrence Weber).  I wrote, performed, recorded, arranged, produced, mixed, mastered, and designed the entire project.  And within each layer I needed to allow enough time to sit back and reflect on it with a fresh enough perspective to assess it effectively.  I'm sure you can understand my excitement now that it is finally complete and ready to be presented!

So what is Mind of Peace?  In some small ways it is similar to my debut release Time, It Goes, though the likeness is primarily due to them both being acoustic instrumental albums. Mind of Peace, however, with its vast array of arrangements, tempos and new ideas really possesses a uniqueness all its own.  There were a great number and variety of instruments used on this album that really help paint a lush picture of the compositions they represent. Some compositions contain nearly full orchestral arrangements while the simplest track contains merely one guitar and a harmonica.  Each track was carefully evaluated and arranged with the precise number of instruments that would best convey the feeling and energy it possessed.  From there great care was taken to assemble the tracks in the exact order that created the most emotional and dynamic listening experience.  As you know, I firmly believe in the 'album' as an entire work of art and have concentrated my efforts into producing an enduring and enriching work of art that I hope you enjoy.

Still not convinced?  Well, here are some more great reasons to join "Album Night" for this release:
-Free streaming of MOP right here on JohnBanrock.com in its entirety during the event
-I will be posting interesting tidbits about each track as we listen during the event
-"Smile" co-writer and performer Lawrence Weber will be on hand for additional insights
-"Album Night" is an interactive forum so you can share your thoughts or ask any questions you'd like
-All purchases of MOP on June 24 will include the free bonus track "Oceans of Love" (not available anywhere else!)
-All physical CDs purchased on June 24th will be autographed by JB & LW!
-It's independent art!  It's where new ideas are born!

Lastly, this album is meant to be listened to in a quiet atmosphere.  I invite you to find your favorite home listening spot, grab your favorite beverage and relax with new music during "Album Night" on Wednesday, June 24th at 9pm EDT.  I look forward to sharing my new album with you!

    Good questions John T. There's no special meaning behind the cover. It's just something I painted one evening when trying to design something for the cover. Ultimately I wanted something simple that was somewhat representative of the title and concept of the album (i.e. something peaceful). As for the album name which existed long before the art, it was also along the same lines. I wanted a title that was descriptive of the underlying music. As Teddy alluded to in his post, something retrospective and relaxing.

    I'm must admit that I'm not entirely sure how a song titled "Tranquil Spirits" has a tympani and orchestral cymbal in it. Quite a large hurrah for a 'tranquil' song. I suppose what happened was that I added some strings (which I had always intended to include), and things just grew from there. Strings became more strings and then eventually rolled into percussion. Despite the instrumentation, however, I feel that the song still possesses a quiet tranquility at its core. Btw, originally I did not plan to have this as the opening track to the album, but I quickly realized it would be a mistake to have it anywhere other than first. "Years Gone By" was the original song set as the opener. I toyed around with 22 different track orders before settling on this particular album order. I put a lot of emphasis on the album as an entire work of art and wanted the tracks to flow perfectly.

    Tranquil Spirits is quite ethereal sounding. I really like the intricate guitars overdubbed in both channels. And the background orchestration.

    "The Way I Hear The Rain", track 2, starting now. This is the most bare bones track on the album in terms of instrumentation, with just one guitar and a harmonica. I like it's stark contrast with the opener, "Tranquil Spirits". I actually experimented with adding a second guitar on this one. It sounded great in some places, but ultimately was not a good fit. There was too much going on and it sounded more like subtraction by addition. Leaving just the guitar and harmonica allows each instrument to speak clearly on it's own.

    "The Observer", track 3, starting now. In continuing the thread of contrasting instrumentation, I used the bass as the lead on "The Observer". I wanted a common theme throughout the album, yet enough variation to allow each song to have its own identity. I think this one is quite different from the two preceding tracks. I recorded the main components of this song on April 26 , 2014, which turned out to be an amazingly productive day. I also recorded much of "Red Velvet" and "In Memory of the Good Times Yet to Come" that day. If every day went that smoothly and productive I'd be churning out albums by the boatload! The original version of this song was actually a minute longer. I thought it was too long so I chopped about 40 seconds off it. I still thought it was a tad too long so I knocked off another 20 seconds and ended up with the 4:15 you hear today. It's definitely a better song without the extra time.

    Red Velvet", track 4, starting now. I had recorded a quick demo of this one in September 2012 when I wrote it and always knew I wanted to return to it to capture a proper version. Admittedly when I laid down the first acoustic guitar for this version I wondered if the song would even make the album. It felt pretty lifeless. I decided to add a second and third guitar anyway to see if the song could be saved. To my delight the additional guitars changed the song entirely. It went from dull and lifeless to beautiful and complex. It's one of my favorite songs on the album.

    "The Wound Of Corruption", track 5, starting now. Just like "Red Velvet", there was an older version of this song which encouraged me to re-record it for 'Mind of Peace'. It's one of the shortest songs on the album clocking in at slightly over two minutes. The instrumentation is pretty straight forward with just bass, piano and two guitars, but the minor key offers yet another change of perspective.

    "The Noose Of Sadness", track 6, starting now. This song begins with a backward guitar and the closing of one of my squeaky doors. Without those elements the intro was just a little too abrupt. I wanted something simple yet effective and so came the door and backward guitar. As for the song itself, it was one of the staples of my live instrumental repertoire and I knew I wanted to record it. I tried a harmonica for the lead too but ultimately preferred the interplay and simplicity of the two guitars. The strings at the end were the final touch. They were gentle enough not to interfere yet warm enough to elevate the song to another level as it glides you home. Of course the ending doesn't totally resolve. It kind of leaves you hanging. One other random note was that "The Noose of Sadness" was removed from the lineup at some point along the way. Although I considered cutting it I ultimately brought it back when I decided to cut "Oceans of Love". I always liked the song and was happy to be able to add it back to the lineup.

    This song begins with a backward guitar and the closing of one of my squeaky doors. Without those elements the intro was just a little too abrupt. I wanted something simple yet effective and so came the door and backward guitar.
    As for the song itself, it was one of the staples of my live instrumental repertoire and I knew I wanted to record it. I tried a harmonica for the lead too but ultimately preferred the interplay and simplicity of the two guitars. The strings at the end were the final touch. They were gentle enough not to interfere yet warm enough to elevate the song to another level as it glides you home. Of course the ending doesn't totally resolve. It kind of leaves you hanging.

    One other random note was that "The Noose of Sadness" was removed from the lineup at some point along the way. Although I considered cutting it I ultimately brought it back when I decided to cut "Oceans of Love". I always liked the song and was happy to be able to add it back to the lineup.

    Hard to put this into words but there is definitely a common theme that runs through the album so far but with each song offering something different. Mellow as Louis T said bit also very uplifting.

    "Years Gone By", track 7, starting now. If 'Mind of Peace' was pressed to vinyl this is the track that would end side one. Unfortunately that would make side one be 26 minutes which really wouldn't work, but that's a story for another day… In early track sequencing I actually had this as the opening track of the album before it yielded to "Tranquil Spirits" (as mentioned earlier). The two tracks are similar in that they both have heavy orchestral arrangements at the end which is why they may have been a bit interchangeable for the intro honors. Ultimately I preferred the softer beginning of "Tranquil Spirits" for the lead off but "Years Gone By" still plays an important role as track 7. The buildup at the end sets you up for what I generally consider to be a livelier 'side 2'. I'm very happy with the way the brass plays underneath and contrary to the harmonica at the climax.

    Louis - on sunday night I'll be recreating the album just using guitar, harmonica and foot tambourine. It will be a very different experience which is what I think will make it interesting. I didn't want it to sound like what was on disc. It will definitely have a different feel to it though, that's for sure

    "In Memory Of The Good Times Yet To Come", track 8, starting now. In some ways this is my favorite track on the album, yet I have a hard time saying that knowing what an enormous pain in the butt it was to mix. The crux of the issue centered around getting the right sound for the main guitar. I just captured a poor sound when I recorded the guitar and it took much experimentation and effort to get it where I was ultimately happy with it (often times a bad sound can be saved in mixing but it is always better to capture a great sound up front. I think I got carried away during the performance and wandered away from the mic without realizing it. Being both the performer and engineer sometimes has its downsides...). I contemplated simply re-recording the part but the energy and feeling of that particular performance wouldn't allow me to scrap it. I'm really happy with how this one came out in the end. It's definitely another of my favorites on the album. Random Note: I used two mics about a foot and a half apart to capture the shaker. I shook it from side to side across the mics and then panned the mics hard left and right to accentuate the shaker moving across the stereo image. It's even more apparent on headphones.

    "Eight Train", track 9, starting now. I had recorded a quick demo of this song back in August 2012 and really liked it. Now when I go back to listen to that version it feels dull and lifeless. Funny how that happens. The groundwork is there in the original but it's not nearly as compelling as this album version. In its defense, the original only had two rhythm guitars and was much slower. The bass, lead guitar and harmonica are all new ideas for this version. You'll hear some rhythmic clapping in there too toward the end.

    "Smile", track 10, starting now. Larry and I recorded this one summer day while sitting in my backyard. I think his lead on here is brilliant and really makes the song. I believe that he came up with the main riff on the spot which amazes me too. We were so happy with the performance and feeling that we were willing to overlook a couple of technical imperfections. There's a third guitar on there (panned left) that I added a few days later, but other than that there were no overdubs. I'll always think of summer when I hear this one.

    "The Long Goodbye", track 11, starting now. I always knew this would be the closing track of the album. For me it's the perfect feeling (and title too) to end 'Mind of Peace'. Contentment. I actually wrote and partially recorded this one during a session I was doing for an old demo of my song "Feelin' Alright". Inspiration struck during the session and I had to follow it. I laid down the rhythm guitar and a rough solo and made a note to return to it later. Within a few days I added the bass, piano and a new lead guitar. Some more work was done later but the basis of the song came together fairly quickly.

    John T- the song was created as I described above and just kind of came from out of nowhere. As for the titled I just felt like it fit the music so well. It's just the feeling I got when I played and listened to it. I debated between "The Long Goodbye" and the "The Long Farewell". I wasn't aware of the book or the movie but figured with such a straightforward title it had to exist. I'll have to look into those though

    To answer your question, there's not any set way I name the songs. Some of them get named right away because the feeling of the song inspires a title. And some of them frankly don't come easy. There are a couple of tracks on this album that got named very late in the process. A good titled just never presented itself that easily. Ultimately I want the title to define the song in some kind of way and sometimes the feelings of the tunes are hard to put into words. Great question Matias!
