Falling in Love is not personal at all…

Falling in Love uhuh,
Has nothing to do with you,
I have nothing to say,
It’s those hormones that play,
It’s a chemical state,
That makes me feel great,
It’s not a personal thing,
Just some brainwaves that spin,
Love has no meaning,
Such nice romantic feelings,
Some sensations in action,
As a physical attraction,
I wonder, who is falling in love with whom?

These words came into my mind after a Silent Retreat with Isaac Shapiro in combination with my study Psychology on the functionality of the human brain. The fact is that our actions and feelings are actually unconscious behaviors and not personal at all!
So even falling is love is a joke of existence after all…
(Caroline)

The music on this song is tongue in cheek; we call it Betty Boop Cocktail Jazz with lots of slapstick elements.

Check out the song “Falling in Love” from our latest ‘CaDra’ EP and don’t take it too serious! 😉

New Music Release “Love is Everywhere” by CaDra

We’ve just released an EP containing 5 songs called “Love is Everywhere”.
It’s the second album by Dutch music duo and studio project CaDra.
Their debut “ Blissful Chess” was a concept album about moving from confusion to clarity in life. The new EP is different, now the central theme is Love (we’re hippies, remember!).

Each song describes Love from a different perspective:
Love as a universal principle, Love as something to fall into, Nirvanic Love and Love for Portugal’s sunny weather and Caipirinha.
Besides that every song belongs to a different music genre. On the EP you will hear Pop, Cocktail Jazz, New Age, Latin and Trance.

As you can expect from CaDra the music is well produced, including beautiful vocal choirs, acoustic and electronic instruments, smooth grooves and lots of ambiance.

Saxophone player Joep Smeenk, well known from “Gotcha! Allstars”, contributes on three of the songs. He added some great atmospheres with his juicy licks. He also, together with CaDra, composed the song “Nirvana”.

This EP and individual tracks can be purchased digitally through Internet on Love Is Everywhere - CaDra and Legaldownload.net

The importance of silence in music, part 2

Silence in the studio In the
sound studio during the mix often a lot of time is spent with
muting certain tracks. We used to call this “shaving the fat cat”.
A mix can get a lot better if certain instruments are silenced out
for a while. Arrangers know this too. Less is often
better.
