Torn Chorus Music - Tell You Somethin’. What have we learned in 14 billion years since the Big Bang?

This song is about how we often miss the obvious, even when it is staring us in the face. It makes a comparison between personal relationships and the relationship we have with our planet.

Covid has shown us that we can drastically reduce our international air travel and the planet will thank us for it. But Covid is only a side issue. There are far more destructive threats facing us. With a world population of nearly 8 billion souls, perhaps we need to heed this lesson and completely rethink how we impact on the environment before we completely ruin it. Climate change is only one potential symptom of our wasteful and pollutive habits. The prospect of nuclear war rears its ugly head again and we realise that threat has never gone away. We’ve just been ignoring it. Is it time to stand up for the human race and look after our planet and our fellow beings, or do we go the way of the dinosaurs?

Torn Chorus Music - Whispering Words - featuring New Zealand Native Birds

This song is about the 2-edged sword of modern technology and what it means for musicians. If you like New Zealand videos and music, please like and subscribe. The video includes a lot of footage of native NZ birds such as tui, kereru, kotare, kakapo, morepork, kea, takahe, etc. As a musician these days, sometimes I feel like a bird perched on a branch, singing out loud, but never knowing who, if anyone, is listening. New tech makes it easier than ever for a musician to record and produce their output, while social media, such as Facebook and YouTube, makes it supremely easy to distribute and broadcast. The downside is that there’s now so much content online, it’s difficult to get heard above all the noise. In addition, we’re all suffering from information overload and it’s getting so hard to separate truth from fiction.

Torn Chorus Music - This City Floats

I wrote this song to celebrate Auckland (Tamaki Makaurau) - this unique city that floats - and to highlight some of the difficulties you may encounter when negotiating life in the big city. If you like New Zealand music and videos, please like and subscribe. The volcanic island of Rangitoto has always been a distinctive part of the Auckland landscape (at least for the last 600 years), however the city is actually built on a much wider volcanic field, which includes 53 volcanoes spread over an area of 1,000 square kilometres, forming the hills, lakes and basins of Greater Auckland. It is a sobering thought that the city floats atop a vast lake of active magma, which may come through at a new place and form a new cone at any time - next week, next year or next century. When you combine this with two large harbours, one on each coast, it creates a distinctive urban environment with a wide range of different landscapes, dominated and surrounded by the sea. I live on the lower slopes of one of these volcanoes, Mount Albert, (in Maori: Ōwairaka or Te Ahi-kā-a-Rakataura) and it is always a privilege to climb the mountain and appreciate the natural beauty of our city. When you reach the top, you can see both harbours and many of the volcanic cones.
