Danny Cohen Magritte

"'Magritte' is about art as meditational fulcrum to a higher state, like the one step beyond wherein staring at a painting of a ship caused it to move. I stare at his art and 'enter' mindscape like Timothy Leary suggests. Horn and tabla players found in the street. Two bass lines. Found a way to subjegate the intricacies of the arrangement via mix (did both) to belie basic 'C' chord structure (with Jewish A minor bridge)."
