Mariusz Duda: Despite our progressive amnesia…..

Mariusz Duda - Song Of A Dying Memory

The Song Of A Dying Memory is the first single from Mariusz Duda (Riverside /Lunatic Soul) that starts his new solo project called Subcutaneous Songs.

Mariusz Duda is a Polish musician, songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. The leader of the progressive rock band Riverside, and the founder of the solo project Lunatic Soul. His musical interests span from rock and metal, through pop and folk, to electronic and ambient music. His newest project is a cycle of Subcutaneous songs released under his own name.

Duda states, «The world is changing right before our eyes. Irreversibly. It has forced us to stop, take shelter, lock ourselves up in quarantine, and stay on our own with our thoughts. Will it influence us and change our attitude towards life? Certainly. The question is: for how long? It would seem that, in spite of slightly bruised psyche, we’re still strong, mighty, and indestructible and, surrounded by state-of-the-art technology, still convinced that we can’t be taken by surprise. Yet the recent events have demonstrated that we are fragile and vulnerable. And now we’re opening ourselves to new realms of sensitivity, something we would never have thought we were capable of».

«For quite a while now, I have had a growing need to create compositions meant exactly for such realms. I call them subcutaneous songs, songs that cling to you, songs “about a sad smile. I have also realized that what I needed for those songs were lyrics that would somehow refer to ecology, our dying mother earth and also our willingness (hopefully) to change our ways and fight for the planet we live on. The Song Of A Dying Memory talks about how, despite our progressive amnesia caused by the intensity of life, we still love what was important to us and somewhere yesterday we still have something to go back to, a starting point that would spark a change and inspire us to find solutions to our current issues».

«From Aesop’s fable The North Wind and the Sun, I choose The Sun. I do not want to blow in your face, point my finger and say, “You are naughty because you’re not taking care of yourself and others”. I elieve that each of us has much more good than bad inside, a lot more love than hate».

«The Song Of A Dying Memory is the first from the cycle of Subcutaneous Songs, which I will be releasing only as standalone digital singles. To me, an avid fan of concept albums, this is a completely new form. But thanks to it, I will be able to start a new music project, a new part of my music universe, which you can explore in its entirety here.

«I hope that at least for some of you the song will make it easier to wait for better days. Enjoy it, stay safe, stay well».

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4056 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
