Terry Daun “She Speaks”

This track is an instrumental with a jazz feel. It is well layered, though repetitious at times. It has the feel of some of the older instrumental tracks I would imagine on bands such as Rush or Yes’ albums. It’s also pretty trippy, so give it a listen!

From Aural Innovations #36 (May 2007) He says his music is psychedelic, but I don’t really find Taking Flight that mind-altering. It’s mostly a jazz/rock fusion sort of thing in the vein of Alan Holdsworth, Jan Hammer, Jean-Luc Ponty etc. Just listen to tracks like “My Watch”, “She Speaks” or “Seedz”. Terry’s other influences include Rundgren, Zappa and Jeff Beck, for example.
I do enjoy his more ambient pieces, though, and some of them are a bit psychedelic. A good example is the peaceful and hypnotic “Logan Ran” that is actually very enjoyable as well as the mystical “Not Far”. There is also a bit heavier stuff in there with some electric guitar. The bit darker “April” reminds me of Space Mirrors and is quite okay. “Tax” features a heavy guitar riff, sequences and a great guitar solo by a guy named Jose Diaz. “Psycho” begins in a minimal mood and has some exciting synth stuff to create a bit psychedelic atmosphere.

Terry Daun starts eir “Game On” with an interesting approach. A song like “My Six Furry Friends” has an arrangement that is serviceable. However, there is a problem with the vocals. Instead of meshing the vocals with the instrumentation on a track, the vocals are layered directly over the instrumentation. This has an effect that makes the track feel a little too clunky. The fact that Daun has little in the way of a flow going during “Clear Traffic Ahead” keeps the disc from properly soaring.

A positive thing that can be said about Daun at this point is that there is more than a small hint of Peter Gabriel in Daun’s vocal styling during “Clear Traffic Ahead”. The first track that feels as if Terry Daun has something going for eir has to be “Will You Ever” . However, the extended length of the track puts a kibosh on the celebration; the first few minutes are solid, but the second half of the track shows Daun spinning eir wheels at points.

One cannot claim that Daun is trying to rip them off; 19 tracks at 66 minutes give listeners an exhaustive description of eir musical style. “Give A Little” has Daun steal the practice tapes of Journey for the instrumentation of the track. The vocals fit interestingly during this track, but I think that the instrumentation is head and shoulders above any vocals that make their way onto this track.

Daun is able to create a cohesive album through and though with “Game On”. While the tracks may never make it to the Billboard charts, there is a sort of fun, almost Atom and His Package meets David Hasslehoff sound to the output of Daun. Saying that, this is not a polished album, and individuals may be turned off by the roughness around the disc’s edges.

Daun was able to get a collection of tracks out here that all share a slew of commonalities without the tracks rolling together. There is some commonality with artists like Steve Lieberman (and more so) Mizar, but

Daun’s bread and butter is electronic and R&B music, for sure. I don’t know where Daun will go with future albums, but here’s to hoping that Daun can go forth and get a producer and engineer on staff that can provide different viewpoints about what would make the best approach.

TERRY DAUN - GAME ON: Terry Daun has been playing music in bands for decades and in more recent years he has been working as a solo artist. Game On features nineteen-tracks written and produced by Terry. Daun is a drummer but his main instrument of choice is a Korg Triton, which allows him to craft a broad range of sounds and styles. The CD is a blend of classic rock influences and experimental electronica with a dash of psychedelic and R&B thrown in for good measure. Terry’s songs feature a diverse range of textures and tempos. The opening track, ‘My Six Furry Friends’ is a creative carnival of images and tones. ‘Give A Little’ is an insightful rocker. Game On is an ambitious project demonstrating that Terry Daun continues to grow as an artist!

Terry Daun is an arranger, drummer, keyboardist, singer and songwriter hailing from Phoenix, AZ, and rising high on his latest release.

Terry has been listening and playing music since a young age. Currently, Daun is a veritable one-man band with studio accom...paniment from engineer and guitarist Peter Manno. Together the two have spun Silk - an eight-track CD that weaves rock oriented instrumentation with progressive patterns. The album is a tantalizing tapestry of textures and tones.

The record opens with "Feather", which is not light but an aggressive hard rock piece. It is followed by the title track that features reams of rhythms and guitar grooves. Atmospheric and techno accents worm their way throughout "Whisper" and the guitar keyboard exchanges on "Starstruck" are engaging. "My Part" is edgy and eerie. "Your Way" flows on lilting beats blending with lush guitar licks. "Babys Bottom" is a fluid arrangement with electronic elements threading its way through the track. The CD closes with "Thirst 4 Emma 3" - a piece propelled by keys and punctuated by the guitar. Silk is a fine musical fabric combining styles and electronic sounds in tunes that are tasteful and technical. • Info: -- USA/AZ 2010: www.terrydaunmusic.com (from SoundPress.net)

(Released Feb. 2007)
Fifteen psychedelic, experimental, progressive, fusion, rock and ambient instrumentals.

From Aural Innovations #36 (May 2007) He says his music is psychedelic... It’s mostly a jazz/rock fusion sort of thing in the vein of Alan Holdsworth, Jan Hammer, Jean-Luc Ponty etc. Just listen to tracks like “My Watch”, “She Speaks” or “Seedz”.

The bit darker “April” reminds me of Space Mirrors and is quite okay. “Tax” features a heavy guitar riff, sequences and a great guitar solo by a guy named Jose Diaz. “Psycho” begins in a minimal mood and has some exciting synth stuff to create a bit psychedelic atmosphere.
