around september 2017, i was invited to join the house band of a local community center. after talking for a while about repertoire with Pierre Frappier, the musical director, i suggested that we choose the songs we were going to play so as to tell a story. and since the center was helping people with mental health and drug-related issues, i suggested that the story be about addiction. the idea caught on. as the song selection process unfolded, we decided to actually write music of our own. quickly the idea of creating some kind of rock opera, or conceptual live show, seemed very appealing, but none of us had any experience with that kind of project. so i began mindmapping ideas, but the mindmap quickly turned into an open office document, and soon enough i was writing a rough chronology of the events in the life of the main character, in the aim of building some sort of « story bible » to refer to so as the organize the whole thing. i ended up writing about 90 pages of events, or scenes, or moments, i'm not quite sure which term best applies, and also built an actual visual timeline. as the writing progressed, the scenes became more detailed, so while the beginning was more sketchy and basic, the more recent pages were closer to a novel, but without the dialog. during that phase, as the story unfolded, inspiration came for about 20 songs, for which i made fairly complete demos, all in midi format for the moment. i'm not sure if that's how one is supposed to write a rock opera, but that's how it happened in this instance. the project's tentative title is « La Côte d'Abraham, » in reference to Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs, which can be seen as a hill people have to climb, and which plays an inspirational role in the life of the main character. it's also the name of the main road that connects downtown and uptown here in Québec City. sadly enough though, the project was shelved when Pierre had to retire because of health issues. in the meantime, i started writing an essay on social organization, triggered by conversations with social workers while researching certain aspects of the life of a homeless drug addict, such as details about how things work in a shelter, and that sort of stuff. even more sadly, a few months later Pierre lost his fight against cancer. the project is still on the shelves, and there's currently no plan to push it further, mostly because of time and resources related constraints. that being said, as means become available, i hope to be able to release some of the songs inspired by the story. below this post you'll find an excerpt of a very crude demo, made using VST instruments only, of one of the musical themes, which is entitled « Relapse. » i hope you enjoy this preview. ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net §

Starscaping was it not all written in the divine memoirs on the nightly heaven as a pattern of stars that the worst could happen at the perfect hour to rescue the fallen from haughtiness dour so that they could in turn save from the bonfire their fellow men who burn in confusion dire was it not all written well ahead of the time in words aptly chosen metered and set to rhyme that there's no simple way to rekindle nature but take what from the day provides shallow pleasure so that there's no option but to renew the deal and forego volition of escaping the real was it not all written well before the ordeal in words left unspoken lest they too soon reveal that much more to this life awaits behind the sheen of the rewards of strife and calculated mien so that knowing the shame of the superficial would suffice to shun fame for what's beneficial was it not all written in the celestial script that thy fruit was smitten and destined to the crypt as it was not the yield of pure inspiration but was bred in the field of selfish intention so that from its demise a new strength could emerge a new life could arise a new world could converge § « Starscaping » is the Club release for March 2020. The opening chapter of « Written In The Stars, » the piece is essentially an introduction to the whole suite. A slow crescendo that begins with an atmospheric impression of an evening in nature, the composition presents the sonic elements that constitute the auditory experience throughout the whole storyline. Soundscapes, sound effects, and electronic drum sounds augment the typical progressive rock instrumentation as the music builds momentum and reaches its culmination, setting the scene for the narrative to begin. This is a video for the single version of the piece. Once the recording of the whole suite is complete, and assuming that the resources allow, the plan is to translate the storyline into a film of about 30 minutes in length. <3 thank you for your support ! <3 § attributions (please see the description of the video on YouTube, or of the audio on Bandcamp) § download link https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/track/starscaping § you're invited to subscribe to the *** Monthly Release Club *** to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § *** connect via social networks *** https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net §

a sweet and whimsical composition, one of the first pieces i wrote for solo acoustic guitar, more than two decades ago. though a few passages have been upgraded over the years, most of it has been with me through the various stages of my journey. hope you enjoy the sunny vibes ! ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net §

know this melancholy that's leaving you forlorn and that lonesome worry stinging your peace like thorn have no reality aside from when you mourn and for all their glory their fruits will be Stillborn § « Stillborn » is the Monthly Release for February 2020. the piece is the second chapter of a composition called « Written In The Stars » which loosely tells the story of a person mourning the unexpected and untimely ending of an undertaking that was very dear to them. in the storyline, the function of the piece is to suggest the dramatic event that led to the grieving process, the unsuccessful endeavour which is symbolized by a stillborn child. the chapter sets the scene as the protagonist, having left the city at the end of day, muses about the deceased infant while getting ready for a lonely night of mourning in nature. the music strides forward as the protagonist transitions from a city dweller frame of mind to an introspective state, all the while advancing deeper into the wilderness. as the piece concludes, memories give way to reflection as the griever becomes enthralled by the surroundings and the starry skies. at its origin, back in July 2017, the composition was intended as an experimental research and development exercise, with the aim of reaching new creative spaces. the composition blends stylistic elements borrowed from many genres ranging from urban to progressive. the music pulses to the beat of electronic and acoustic drum sounds, and is augmented by excerpts of poetry readings. this is a video for the single version of the piece. hopefully, when the recording of the whole of « Written In The Stars » is complete, and as means and resources allow, a proper conceptual video, or more likely a short film, will be released. meanwhile, i hope you enjoy the new music ! ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § ★ attributions ★ a list of the media files used in the making of this video is available here : https://poligraf.tumblr.com/post/610963848609120256/stillborn-attributions § ★ download link ★ https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/track/stillborn § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net § #stillborn #music #newmusic #bandcamp #funk #urban #electronicdrums #progressive #alternative #eclectic #poetry #crushed #experimental

unforeseen collapsing personal catastrophe the dust settling you've done more than enough retreat to the margin not a day for dashes just rest and imagine Rising From The Ashes § « Rising From The Ashes » is the Monthly Release for January 2020. a restless instrumental that evolved from an unusual chord progression i stumbled upon while noodling on the nylon guitar. it evokes the indomitable loving energy that animates all that is alive, and which seemingly never stops surging and thriving onward even when the unthinkable happens and demise appears unavoidable. the artwork was inspired by photographs of signs of life returning after the Australian bushfires. no picks were used during the making of this recording, which is a first for me for this type of composition. after a lifetime believing that it was necessary to use a pick to achieve a certain level of virtuosity on the electric guitar, I had an epiphany over the holidays. while discovering the works of Matteo Mancuso, it became obvious that this limitation was only conceptual and didn’t actually exist. ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § ★ download link ★ https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/track/rising-from-the-ashes § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net § #rock #instrumental #electricguitar #progrock #guitar #fingerstyle #bandcamp #music #progressiverock #clavinet #electricpiano #rhodes #mellotron #forestfires #bushfires #rebirth #signsoflife #proggy #progressivemusic #progressive #eclectic #cakewalk #musicproducer #musiclife #recording #musicmaking #musicmakers #musiccreator

do not fearful become because of that one scaith however the outcome the hands of time will swathe and wash away the dust while in respite you bathe in tomorrow you'll trust and take that Leap Of Faith § this instrumental stems from a simple progression on the nylon guitar that slowly builds and then explores a variety of landscapes. gentle and simple at its beginning, the music becomes more dramatic as the leap gets nearer. once the safety of the solid ground is left behind, it then gains the confidence to be more adventurous, until it reaches the grand moment of vindication wherein faith is justified by the unforeseeable increase in freedom that couldn’t have been gained otherwise. from there on, it experiences the joyous fun once more before returning to its original peaceful state. i have a definite fondness for the piece as it often starts playing in my mind when i'm in doubt about particular courses of action that seem to entail some form of danger... it sings « just take the leap » hope you enjoy it as much as i do ! ❤ thank you for your support ! ❤ § ★ download link ★ https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/track/leap-of-faith § you're invited to subscribe to the ★ Monthly Release Club ★ to instantly get every composition i release, along with Club Exclusives and bonus materials such as demos, videos, lyrics and other works in progress : https://poligraf.bandcamp.com/monthly-release-club among other privileges, Club Members have access to the contents of the « Upcoming Releases » and « Creative Process » series at least one month before the general public. § ★ connect via social networks ★ https://www.facebook.com/christopher.andrew.stewart https://www.facebook.com/poligraf https://twitter.com/poligraf https://instagram.com/p0l16r4f/ https://soundcloud.com/poligraf http://stewart-explorations.net § #rock #electricguitar #faith #guitar #instrumental #nylonguitar #progressiverock #progrock #quebec #vdq
