apiana on popmatters

Lisa’s Apiana is premiering today at PopMatters ahead of a US release of “Same Cloth or Not” on Oct 28! Lisa says of Apiana:

The birth, the journey or the death of a musical instrument is not commonly acknowledged or documented.

A musical instrument has a voice which can move us so deeply that words are weak in explanation. They are charming things. They invite us to dance with them and to harmonise with them but more importantly, they invite us to journey with them and get lost beside them, in short, escapism and dancing with our dreams.

Then a musical instrument surely nurtures a spirit of its own.

I’ve met them in songs, where time stands still and I feel love and everything is black and white.

There is no key for a punctuation mark on a piano.

My piano was taken from me by a torrential rain on a dirty Dublin October night.
