New Electric Record:  "My Not-So-Silent Movie"

"My Not-So-Silent Movie" is a soundtrack to an imaginary film. This is a story of unintended consequences: good causing evil for good's sake and vice versa. Love, betrayal, death and redemption splashed out with dynamic guitars, soaring melodic vocals, hooks, harmonies, and a rhythm section that will throw you into dance.

The project started simply: I wanted to write a narrative song from the bad guy's perspective, like Pete Townshend's "Behind Blue Eyes". Six tunes spilled out, characters and a story began to develop. Inspiration dried up and still no bad guy song. I bought some screenwriting books and wrote a screenplay to help imagine context of the rest of the songs.

The work is conceptual but not a rock opera or musical. Tracks on My Not-So-Silent Movie introduce characters, describe situations and resolutions without narrating a plot. Each song stands on its own without need to understand the story arc.  

General information

Live: -lovescratch- is a rock power-trio led by me, C S Gleason. The lineup for each show depends on the availability of the musicians. Their names are in the left sidebar under "Cast of Characters". I feel fortunate to know all of these people.

Read the interview by my friend Daniela Ianculovici for more details about -lovescratch- and "My Not-So-Silent Movie".
