This Certain Sleepiness CD by Mark Gordon Brown Out Now!

This Certain Sleepiness as a title was inspired by a quote from Jimi Hendrix “There are a few chosen people who are here to get people out of this certain sleepiness that they're in.” The music however in this work is not inspired by Jimi Hendrix, more like Stockhausen, John Cage, Edgard Varèse and other composers in the Musique concrète style. Also these compositions are microtonal in nature.  
This was first released December 25 2002 at a time when Five Spiders Media was releasing a lot of Mark Gordon Brown's compositions, which we pulled 2004 due to an international move and are now re-releasing once again. 
Note on Tracks 2 and 4. Track 2 “Waking on The Wrong Side of Consiousness” the spelling is correct and this misspelling is a part of the composition. IE it's meaning is that of waking up in another reality and to stress this further the word consciousness is spelled consiousness in that particular reality. This is followed by Track 4 being titled “Vails and Vials” in that Vails in our reality would be spelled Veils, yet in this other reality it is spelled “Vails”.
