about

Part of my project "52 Sound-paintings", this music has been created in response to an artwork by Juli Cady Ryan titled "The Time Stealer". The music is arranged for 8 voices, grand-father clock percussion (chimes, cog wheels, pendulm, chains, glass doors and casing - played with wooden & metal mallets) and "Possum" the cat.

lyrics

All Takes Time

What's the time?
Got the time?
Time lines, lifelines,
All in good time
Time is ripe

Stealing tme
Keeping time
Don't loose time
Time waits for no woman
Woman makes her own time

It all takes it's own time
it all takes longer than you think
One thing at a time
Fitting in with the time
Little bits that fit in time slots
Timing is everything

This was our time,
Your time
My time
That time, though it's lost to us: precious time is gone!
Set in time like a song
Of hope for
Good times to come

Time is ripe,
time heals all things
Time of day any time of night
Crooked street time faction
Time is right
Living in the time

Time is where we are
