My hand is deep in the machine on this one, not caught there, but flapping around like a fish, wiggling off the hook, I feel I might break free!

Sometimes I think about this very old alien Muppet trapped on a tropical island playing an ethereal accordion. Sometimes I can't get his haunting music out of my head. Is it a self-portrait? Maybe, but not mine. I mean it is the nature of art to blur reflection and introspection. It is at the heart of human nature to define your own reality. All art is a self-portrait in one way or another.

I wanted to make my Theremini into an an electronic singing bowl that shimmered with harmonics and dripped with drone. My pedal board along with its particle synthesizer and EH Ravish Sitar pedal figure predominately in this ruse.
from Hand in the Machine, released 22 November 2014
All tracks are single take improvisations.

A taste of the last tune from my new live solo Theremin CD, Hand in the Machine. (Download at maddogfriedman.bandcamp.com.) I wanted to try and make my Theremini into an an electronic singing bowl that shimmered with harmonics and dripped with drone. My pedal board along with its Electro-Harmonix Superego and Ravish Sitar pedals figure predominately in this ruse. I finally got my "AIR HARP" spaceship to take me where I want to go. Now I am not sure if I will ever be able to find my way back again.

My latest digital painting. The pixels are still wet.
It's called "Bird's Eye View."
It's about magical healing.

This is my first flute recording written to help with transitioning from my dear cousin Annie's death at the early age of 60.

The inspiration for this piece came from being locked into an eye to eye connection with an alpha frog in a nearby wetlands. I was enjoying the connection, feeling his wildness, as we somehow morphed together in a primordial forest, very peaceful yet somehow always underneath what I normally perceive as the wetlands...

rain bites skin
among warm speckled rays
thunder hems & haws clears its throat of sky
lilac whiffs with languid wind and that smell
when rain first tames the dust brings me
to who I am (in this cage of dying skin)
the old man rambled can’t work in the lightening
I had to agree it was a yellow afternoon
and there is no place better to stand
than where your feet meet the ground
I wouldn’t go up there either
not if I had a say
not now probably never

I Shot the Serif
I labor to layer
like sturdy scars
as certainly as
the runaway train
roaring through my brain
jumps the track of reason
sharp barb lurks in the dark
the point is silence
I move between the taste
of rust and blood
hook slides from jaw
with the simplicity of gravity
I swish free smoothly slipping
beneath the quivered surface
burnt dusk oozes from the eye of night
cloistered with pain and wormy delusion
the dangling trap drifts beyond
I forage shimmering in the infinite dawn
