about

Songs From A Chamber is a short collection of recordings that were previously released through several band and solo projects I was involved with in New York City between the late 80s and early 90s.This was a very transitional time for me,both as an artist and as a man. I was very fortunate to have been able to collaborate with some truly remarkable musicians and composers in that time period, and the large amount of my life that I spent on the road performing and recording all over the world helped shape the way I now listen, improvise, think, and feel.

about

FOTHOU (Fall of the House of Usher) Minneapolis, Minnesota

FOTHOU (Fall of the House of Usher) is:
a dark, resinous, and brutally elegant master shot of musical possibilities— lifting (with a vengeance) from many of the world's deepest groove pockets- East, West, and North African, 80's No Wave skronk, early 70's Miles, Sun Ra, and Good Old New Orleans Vampire Funk— and creating a unique and soul-twisting brand of high energy, postnational slipsync. ... more

Track Name: Unbelievable Candy
Unbelievable Candy by C. Cunningham

The simple times
The simple tune of a carousel
Spinning on a hill
I know I will wake up if I ask her name
I want her
She’s unbelievable, unbelievable candy

Try once more,
I am not tired.

Unbelievable, unbelievable

Please put your kisses
In a bundle
I can carry home, I can carry home
I want you
She’s unbelievable, unbelievable candy

In a package I can carry home
Track Name: Extinguish All Useless Lights
Extinguish All Useless Lights by C. Cunningham

And if the sun stayed down now
and all around there was only night
And waterfalls from heaven would extinguish all useless light-
The light from your eyes would be all I need
to see the love you've given to me.

A thousand faces floating in the ice of my memories
are melting in the waters of this lover's sea, this lover's sea

Who turns the key that turns you on?
Who turns the key that turns you on?
If I do now, will you stay with me?
If I do now, will you stay with me?

The light from your eyes will be all I need
to see the love you've given to me.

A thousand faces floating in the ice of my memories
are melting in the waters of this lover's sea, this lover's sea
this lover's sea, this lover's sea

Who turns the key that turns you on?
Who turns the key that turns you on?
If I do now, will you stay with me?
If I do now, will you stay with me?

Who holds the key that turns you on?
Who turns the key that turns you on?
If I do now, will you stay with me?
If I do now, will you stay with me?

If I do now, will you stay with me?
If I do now, will you stay with me?

I'm in the lover's sea.
Track Name: Walking Into The Lightning
Walking into the Lightning by C. Cunningham

There's a glimmer on the shimmerstrasse tonight
All the taxis are waiting in the drizzle
Love is the jones that flows my eyes, walking into the lightning
I'm in no mood to compromise, walking into the lightning
I doubt I'll find any sleep tonight, walking into the lightning

I'll be your grey man
I'll be your ghost
Always home, but never there
Often naked, but never laid bare
Thank you for your face beneath your face beneath your face

We met on the crest of a crater
We made love through the holes in a chain link fence
We slept under the cracked dome above
and woke in the darkness drenched

I'll be your grey man
I'll be your ghost
Always home, but never there
Often naked, but never laid bare
Thank you for your face beneath your face beneath your face

The jokes on you

Love is the jones that flows my eyes, walking into the lightning
