Before My Death - SLAB

Before My Death by SLAB

I've always been fascinated by the sea and sand dunes in particular, my favourite moment of any film is when David Niven is washed ashore at Saunton Sands in A Matter of Life and Death and he finds the boy playing pipes in the sand..... this image has always played subconsciously over and over in my head and when I wrote this piece of music it just seemed the perfect visual for it .... and the wash of synth really reminds me of one of James Turrells infinite blue light installations I saw.... i stood on the edge of heaven.... and this is my soundtrack...

Until The End - SLAB

our journey into outer space continues

Do Not Be Afraid Walk Into The Light - SLAB by SLAB

This one's for all the loved ones we have lost - and will lose. Don't be afraid, walk into the light. My sister had a bad epileptic fit once, and nearly drowned in the bath. Luckily, my Dad managed to break the door down, gave her the kiss of life, and saved her (with me quivering impotently downstairs - mind you, I was only 13). She said she had the most amazing dream as she was (nearly) dying. She was in the most beautiful garden she'd ever seen in her life, and she could hear birds singinging. When she came back round to consciousness, she said she was actually sad to leave such a beautiful place. Which proves, whether you belive in the afterlife or not, the human brain is capable of an amazing response to potentially life-threatening moments. So we should never fear death. My brother-in-law died in my arms in 2000, and the sense of peace and stillness afterwards was the most profound thing I've ever experienced. This tune was written for him, my Dad, and Steve's lost loved ones too. we will all meet up again, some sunny day - hopefully in my sister's garden ... Paul J

SLAB - Through The Arcs of Dying Suns

A new track, a journey into the sun, a huge monolithic bass drone overlaid with psychedelic guitars....into the void once more dear friends
