One of the truly exciting things about building a web site like this one is bumping into new and unexpected treasures. Here's one: Jason Peri!
Jason tells a story that will be familiar to many of the people who browse these pages -- " I've been a time travel fan ever since I saw the 1960 film when I was a kid."
Unlike the rest of us, however, Jason wrote a song in '87 based on the book and film: "All The Time In The World." This is probably the first and only song to include a verse about the "talking rings" from Pal's "Time Machine!"
Jason would love to get a shot at scoring the DreamWorks re-make. Visit his page at IUMA and you'll find yourself rooting for him to get the job. His music is terrific! If you click on the "Artist Radio" button at the top of the page, you can listen to a continuous selection of Jason's work... and it's all excellent. His Time Machine-themed song, "All the Time In The World" (as well as his "Dance of The Eloi") can be found by scrolling down the page. You'll also find a wide range of Jason's other pieces there, including his orchestral film music.
Jason describes his music as jazz/rock/orchestral and cites The Beatles, Yes, Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, Spyro Gyra, Maurice Ravel, Pat Metheny, and Todd Rundgren as musical influences.
He's been at it since '64, (first guitar lesson). To create music these days, he's using not only guitar, but computers and synthesizers.
His CD's, all available at www.MP3.com include "Carved In Air," "Sounds Like Heaven," "Please Pass The Jazz," "Drastic Measures," and "Nothing In Particular." Also check www.NewHatRecords.com. All are recommended!
The original 1987 recording of "All the Time In The World," as well as "Dance of The Eloi," are available at mp3.com. Well worth a visit.
