Blue Lily Commission
"Blue Lily Commission"?
I've found a lot of inspiration in the ancient world; including ancient
Egypt. A TV programme on the Blue Lily (or Blue Lotus) intrigued me enough
to research it. Then the name fell into place.
music is quite different - describe it in 3 words.
Hypnotic, exotic, fusion.
first album from Blue Lily Commission - Wine Songs
chosen to demo the track "The Goddess Nekhebit". What's that
I wanted to write a track where the musical progression and compositional
elements were all in the rhythm and bass parts leaving just a few chords
and sounds to overlay all this - the reverse of the usual practice. Nekhebit
as a vulture winged with nine bows.
in 'Blue Lily'
Just me! Steve Palmer. It's a solo project.
records do you have in your collection?
Ozric Tentacles - Expland, Shpongle - Are you shpongled, Peter Gabriel
- Passion soundtrack.
does the future hold?
I'm preparing to record a new album called "Seshen And The White
Jasmine Commission" which I hope will be ready by the summer of 2001.
if you become famous...?
The future of music is listening-music.
This means the internet. If I became better known I would like to explore
the possibilities of streaming animation (video) to compliment my music.
Perhaps a Blue Lily site?
Let's talk about Devon...what's the best and worst thing about the county?
The worst thing is it's so expensive! The best? Everything else; fantastic
environment, good solid, liberal/alternative culture - Totnes!! Also lots
of exciting and interesting people to work with.
Can we see you performing locally?
I've a gig at Exeter University SF Convention on Sunday March 3rd 2001.
