Quotes

Selected reactions to Lee Negin's "Hungry Ghosts" album:

"Mixture of ambient and electro pop. Very much a mind-bending trip of sounds. Outstanding album -- great on loud systems."

--Paul Readman, Music World Radio 1

"The whole album is a floating trip of sounds and vocals that takes you to another place."
--Demand Records, U.K.

"Lee Negin is hitting what seems to be yet another apex in his music career."
--Chris Constantino, SonicTribe Network

"Sometimes people who have had near-death experiences say that they are taken to a place where their entire life flashes before their eyes, and in 'The Dance,' that's what I felt."

--Sheena Metal, LATalkRadio

"A stimulating listen. So take some time to ponder intellectual relativity and the space aliens living in your inner ear."

--John Shelton Ivany Top 21

"Hearing this artist's expertly produced work is to experience a vision aimed beyond the realm of pop. ...Negin never offers the same sound twice, employing singers as ensemble instruments and working with sounds in a way that reminds us at times of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin and Wendy Carlos."

- Music Connection Magazine, April 2011

"Lee Negin is an eccentric genius. Not content with just (!) being a university professor and a globe-trotting life – Negin has lived in Japan, India, Poland and, currently, South Korea, since leaving America 21 years ago – he has spent over three decades producing experimental music to the point of (near) perfection. His new album ‘Hungry Ghosts’ – released February 7th – is a mad masterpiece....it’s addictive and blissful.

Author: Clive Rozario, AAA Music

And, in refusing to review it, the venerable New Music Express said it was "A bit too far off the wall for us."

Sometimes waiting can be exciting, because the time before an event is often better than the event itself ... sometimes waiting is a real suffering ... our life is made of waitings, all sorts, all nature, and all depends the way we go through .... Have a wonderful day *** ♥ Love ♥

Music by Asher Fulero

Parfois l'attente peut être excitante, parce que le temps avant un événement est souvent meilleur que l'événement lui-même ... parfois l'attente est une souffrance réelle ... notre vie est faite d'attentes, toutes sortes, de toutes natures et tout dépend de la façon dont nous les traversons .... Passez une merveilleuse journée *** ♥ Love ♥

Lake was quiet, and suddently, a phantomatic shape appeared to me ... as from the past ... watching me with white eyes .... I wasn't afraid ... I was attracted ... Smile Well this month is for ghosts all along ... so happy week dear friends **** ♥



Music : Upside Down



Le Lac était calme et soudain, une forme fantômatique apparut ... comme venant du passé ... me regardant de ses yeux blancs ... je n'avais pas peur, j'étais attirée ... Smile Hé bien ce mois est celui des revenants ... donc belle semaine mes amis *** ♥

Today represents exactly the soul of this season ... rain, wind, then blue sky, and again darkness and rain .... I enjoy it very much *** Wish you to feel this soul though your heart and appreciate the moment *** Love ♥

Mary Stuart (1542-1587) had a special and sad destiny . Queen of France, shortly, she went back to Scotland as Queen of Scots, but conflicts of religion made her always manipulated by politics and people ... In my end is my beginning, her last words ... indeed, her son James 1rst of England is the ancestor of actual Queen Elizabeth II *** ♥



Mary Stuart (1542-1587), eut une destinée spéciale et plutôt triste . Reine de France, très brièvement, elle retourna en Ecosse en tant que Reine de ce pays, mais les conflits religieux firent qu'elle fut toujours manipulée par la politique et les gens autour d'elle ... En ma fin est mon commencement ... ses derniers mots ... en effet son fils Jacques 1er d'Angleterre, est l'ancêtre de l'actuelle Reine Elizabeth II *** ♥

After festivities, time comes to have some fresh air, long walk in woods, and prepare ourselves to this awesome month, often misunderstood, because of its greyness .... it's a time of reflection, meditation, we have to cherish the inner light more than ever ..... Beautiful November to all ♥



Music by Michel Pépé



Après des festivités, le temps vient de prendre l'air bien frais, marcher longtemps dans des bois et nous préparer à ce mois merveilleux, souvent mal compris, à cause de sa grisaille .... c'est un temps de réflexion, de méditation, nous devons chérir la lumière intérieure plus que jamais..... Beau novembre à tous ♥♥
