A TRIBUTE MIX TO MR. GIL SCOTT-HERON *APRIL 1, 1949 MAY 27, 2011
by Daniel Schmitt and Charles Petersohn
Sound is permanently. It becomes an abstract experience, because everything we hear is getting fused beyond recognition. Your personal sound is a mash, a pulp of random noise.
And then there is music. Most of it is a mash, too. Only a few music we hear is touching us for a moment, for a day or even longer.
Gil Scott Heron’s music is touching us again and again. A beautiful piano, a message and The Voice. His music is extraordinary, because it is in a way silent and warm, but in the same way it is stirring up. The voice tells stories deep like a personal conversation and in the same way revolutionary, a message for the messengers.
Some days a go, the man died. The man's music will stay with us, his poetry, his piano and The Voice! Peace.
