Bruce Cockburn prophet of our time

I’ve always appreciated the music of Canadian singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn. His lyrics remind me of the classic Hebrew Bible prophets, full of passion for justice, spoken (in Bruce’s case, sung) with deep love and care. Many of his songs are laments like the prophetic oracles of Jeremiah or Amos and others. In this video [scroll down to play it] Bruce sings one of his quintessential laments on behalf of the two-thirds world, “Call It Democracy.”

Computer Music

Lately I’ve enjoyed listening to computer music, also known as electronic or synthesizer music. These videos give you an idea of what is available by way of technology in this particular genre of music.
