Hyper Global Intensity

Hyper Global Intensity is the name of my band, which is just me and sometimes Ionel Petroi. Unless otherwise mentioned, I compose and play all the instruments.  HGI‘s first album, “A-Carousel” is in the work. It will be something I have been meaning to do for a long time, a mixture of noises and avant-garde contemporary music. Think Godspeed You Black Emperor or Ben Frost meets George Crumb with texts by Allen Ginsberg.  To be released later this year (2016).

Over the years, I have written songs and tracks galore.  Here are some examples of tracks written for my films.

Dinosaur ParkThis opening track is the Overture for my feature film “Dinosaur Park,” 2010. Though I now have all the bells and whistles I can dream of to record, I used the severely limiting and limited GarageBand to put this track together in 2009.

The following track, Life in Paris, blends international voices, Middle-East and Celtic funky beats.

Vogue of Large, for Soprano and Chamber Ensemble,” was performed for the first time in 2006, though the composition was created in 1999.  The text is based on my biography of the same title. Composer John B Hedges took a segment of roughly a couple of pages length, describing the rugged village, in Northern France, where I come from, and set them to music.  This 9 minute piece was a side project, as we were working on a new opera, “Beneath of All the Above,” for which John composed the music to the libretto I penned.
