The Boy who spoke clouds


The Boy Who Spoke Clouds is the moniker of Adam Casey, former guitarist and singer of Australian sextet, Seascapes of the Interior. The Boy Who Spoke Clouds began as a musical departure point from Seascapes of the Interior, amalgamating Adam’s love of gypsy and indigenous music and the polyrhythmic approach of composers such as Steve Reich and Gyorgi Ligeti with his bittersweet shamanic-folk based compositions.

The Boy Who Spoke Clouds is the moniker of Adam Casey, former guitarist and singer of Australian sextet, Seascapes of the Interior. The Boy Who Spoke Clouds began as a musical departure point from Seascapes of the Interior, amalgamating Adam’s love of gypsy and indigenous music and the polyrhythmic approach of composers such as Steve Reich and Gyorgi Ligeti with his bittersweet shamanic-folk based compositions. The combination is unexpected, yet somehow, these disparate sounds unite into a glorious whole, the songs, at times, bursting with joyous yelps and flamenco style hand clapping and other times, settling into more introspective and sparse territory. The Boy Who Spoke Clouds debut album was recorded in 2004 through 2005 at a beach house over a four month period without the potential for release in mind. All the songs were recorded, out of necessity, via the microphone of a Sony handycam video Hi8 into a cheap sound card.

Everything from flamenco handclaps, percussive chanting, foot stomping and chopsticks hitting guitars were incorporated, sometimes in the hope of mimicking a sound Adam had no means of producing conventionally, and other times, attempting the absurd with the hope of dispelling self-conscious methods of music production and simultaneously to push himself out of his regular habits and musical clichés. "One of my biggest fears as an artist is to repeat myself, to fall back on my comforts. These recordings began as explorations outside of my usual musical vernacular. They very quickly became something intensely personal for me." On this album, Adam sings predominantly of death, transitions, and one’s engagement with the mystery before the answer or question arise.

"My fascination with things in-between, the shadows between the branches, have crept into these songs. The songs are like little invocations, prayers to not knowing." The Boy Who Spoke Clouds debut album will be released in early 2009 on Sun Sea Sky Productions. The debut album will soon be followed by"The Seal Woman Suite", a group of songs written specifically for and accompanied by a storybook with paintings, and "Weight of Experience", the first album that sees The Boy Who Spoke Clouds as a band, also scheduled to be released later in 2009.
