A film by Paul Ridout featuring the music ‘Slow Motion Blackbird’ taken from the album ‘Shift’ by Chris Hughes and produced by Chris Hughes & Paul Ridout.

In September 1967 Steve Reich wrote the score for ‘Slow Motion Sound’:-
“Very gradually slow down a recorded sound to many times its original length without changing its pitch or timbre at all”. He later remarked (1974) that it had remained a concept on paper because it was technologically impossible to realise.

By 1994 the technology had evolved thus allowing Chris and I to add this piece, along with Pendulum Music, to the collection that is ‘Shift’.
Reich’s intention had been to use a recording of children learning by rote. We referenced that with our recording of a violinist learning a blackbird’s song. The original violin phrase which doubles the blackbird’s song was played by Stuart Gordon, but, to this day the blackbird remains anonymous.

Tom’s poem for Captain Beefheart

NOW DON IS LIKE THE BONES IN A WATERMELON
OR THE SEEDS IN A FISH AND YOU CAN SEE HIM
THROUGH THE BLUE SMOKE OF A TRAMPS FIRE
IS HE STILL IN 1129 AT THE DAVENPORT HOTEL
IN SILO, MISSOURI? NO…YOU SEE MY FRIEND YOU
WILL NOT FIND HIM THERE. HE CAME FROM THE CLAY
AND HE HAS GONE BACK…LIKE RATS, LIKE RAVENS
ROOKS, AND COAL BLACK ROSES…SHARKS, SHADOWS,
SHOES AND SHEEP. HE IS NOW LIKE THE PLACE ON
THE COUNTER, WORN AWAY FROM YEARS OF MAKING CHANGE.
HE IS NOW A SIREN IN THE NEXT TOWN OVER…ONLY HIS
TAIL IS STICKING OUT OF THE GROUND.
DON, HE WAS A GIANT AND HE WALKED AMONG US ON THIS
EARTH, NOW LONG GONE…
HE HAS GONE BACK INTO THE FROGS CROAKING THROAT…
LISTEN, IN THE DESERT THERE IS A FORK STUCK IN A TREE…
PUT YOUR EAR UP TO IT AND THUMP IT, BOW IT, SWALLOW THE
SOUND AND THEN GROW IT…
DON SEEMS TO BE TELLING US ALL…DO NOT FOLLOW HIM
JUST TAKE WHAT CLUES HE LEFT AND WITH THEM,
GO AND BUILD A STRANGE HOUSE OF YOUR OWN
-TOM WAITS
