2 tracks : 2 timelines

5/28/2021

It’s that time again for a blog post! In those iconic words of Bob Dylan, whose 80th birthday was just this past week, God bless him – “the times they are a’changin.” 

Certainly we can all agree after the last year+ we’ve all been through that they’ve BEEN a’changing, and the future really is, well, now.

I have two tracks that I’ve recently produced and am excited to share, but they come with a context attached, which is that of our current moment. Art doesn’t appear in a vacuum, after all. So….

You see in my eyes, there are two distinct timelines – or roadmaps to our potential future – emerging.

The first, let’s call – “Tech World”
This is more or less a continuation of our current technological paradigm. It’s the next generation of technology in all its forms – from global 5G connectivity, the ‘internet of things,’ Elon’s mad dash to fill the sky with Starlink satellites and eventually colonize Mars, trackable and traceable humans on every corner of the globe, immunity passports, AI smart meters everywhere you turn, further centralization of all healthcare, automation and robotics transforming the very nature of the workplace (and the humans that formerly worked in them) in the “fourth industrial revolution,” genetic sequencing to create designer babies, and so, so much more. It’s basically the Matrix, actualized. In fact, this past week global leaders from the World Economic Forum met in Singapore to further flesh out their plans for The Great Reset, which while on its face looks humanitarian, egalitarian, and full of all the right buzz words, is actually the agenda of the quote-unquote ‘elites’ to lead us into THEIR vision of the future. In a nutshell, the principles of Tech World thrive off of Control, Centralization, Global top-down Governance, and the monitoring and structuring of all human activity.

Here’s my soundtrack to Tech World, my first real foray into a electronic/techno sound that for me captures the feeling of walking into this tech-centric future.

However, there’s a second timeline on the rise, too. 

It’s principles are bottoms-up; organic, cage-free humanity; a strong and intentional move back to nature in all areas of life; people-led solutions; wholistic and whole-systems based thinking healthcare; spirituality; intentional community; an emphasis on self-determination, freedom, and autonomy; de-centralized economics; cutting-edge research into the nature of consciousness and intention on quantum levels; and a whole lot more. In fact, it’s a whole emerging movement, in case you haven’t heard. Let’s call it The Greater Reset. It’s actually happening all week long, in response to the WEF’s meeting of the minds, with speakers, thinkers, & activists from diverse fields of study and all walks of life. These folks have a uniting vision, which at its core is really pretty simple. It is a common desire to determine our individual and collective futures according to how WE the people see fit. That we have not only the inherent right, but the responsibility, to make our own way, and choose the best path for us going forward that brings us back into balance with ourselves, with nature, and with economies of scale that are TRULY sustainable on local and regional levels, without top-down control dictating every aspect of our lives. I highly recommend checking out https://thegreaterreset.org/ to get a sense of what this movement is all about, and open up to the possibility that maybe a handful of globalist don’t really know what’s best for us, and that there are willing, capable people around us who aren’t waiting for an instruction manual for the future.

And of course, it inspired a track! My big bro Paul @paulitomuse wrote and sings on this song, which he then passed over to me to finish production, mixing and mastering! I’m actually pretty proud of my handiwork producing a full-fledged track for a first real outside “client,” even if it’s all in the family for now. 😉

So here i give you the soundtrack to that alternate timeline, the soundtrack to self-determination and truly OWNING our freedom, The Greater Reset Activation!

Appropriately, it is Gemini season after all, where twos, dualities, and twin energies abound. 

At the end of the day, to me it’s all about an idea – an idea we rarely hear championed by our big tech and media overlords for that matter- that we ALL have a choice to determine our future, along with the free-will to choose the path that feels best for us. If you believe in a cosmically intelligent God who put the capacity to self-determine, reflect, and decide within each brain and heart…heck, even if you only believe a miracle of science and happenstance made us what we are…wouldn’t you grant that same being the opportunity to chart its own course based on that wonderfully made innate intelligence and intuition that is the light the charts its course?
**But then we’re taking about how the only thing that’s gonna get us to ANY real future worth talking about is the primacy of a new, 21st century, next-level kinda heart-based intelligence, transcending the ego/divisions of mere intellect alone…andd that’s a wholle ‘nother blog post for a wholeee nother day, i would say…….
. . .
In any case, I appreciate you spending the time to read my rant/blog and I hope it gave you some food for thought about the direction we’re all heading, and maybe even a bit more consciousness about the timeline YOU want to choose.
Thanks for listening!

Over and Out por ahora,

What’s new with JHM!???

July, 2016:

Whatsup World! Well…happy to reach out to you again! If you’ve ever paid my site a visit before, you might’ve noticed how I’ve neglected to update this blog for a MiNuTe here! But…owing to the urgency of our times..the role of artists to speak + live their truth..the respect for keeping my fans in the loop..I promise from now on to change this not-so-great habit for the better!!! Sooo let’s get to it ~ what IS up in the world of Julian Hartwell Music lately!?

In short – This Summer is shaping to be quite a hot one, what with all these irons in the fire right now!
I’ve been steadily thickening The JHP BOOK with its 25+ song repertoire, AKA writing + arranging…cleaning + tweaking…Not to many shows this Summer with The JHP at the moment because keeping 6 bandmates all in one place is proving tricky, but I have some big plans come Fall in terms of recording and releasing new material.
So stay tuned for that!

I recently gave my SoundCloud music page a ‘Summer Makeover’, putting up some exclusive live tracks and samples from past gigs with the JHP, in addition to a few from the album of course. With this I’ve begun a new tradition that will accompany any new music I release — {THe TrackStory} — This is the back story, the narrative/inspiration/spirit of the song you hear. Not only does it give you something to read while you listen (a multi-sensory experience!) but consider it my way of bringing you into my World as a composer a bit more — what makes me tick…a little bit of my philosophy/worldview…a way to share the inner message of a song that no matter how effectively composed and executed, still might need some explaining. So, when you go to listen to a particular song on my page, be sure to open each track individually and read the accompanying {TrackStory} behind each one! You can do all that here — https://soundcloud.com/julian-hartwell

P.S. — Look out for some NEW Solo Piano Material coming soon to that page, as well!

As far as other projects — French Street Gumbo is going Back in the Studio hard this August to wrap up our first Single!!!
I can’t share too much more at this moment, but I can promise you, it’s gonna be our first BIG splash and Music Launch, so needless to say we can’t wait to show the World just what we’ve been sitting on for a while now….and all this as the Live Set continues to be crafted and mastered with our New Drummer too, btw…

And in August I’ll also be going in the studio with talented singer/multi-instrumentalist The Derek Anthony AKA Palatine on a new track of his coming up!

Lastly, I finally joined the TwitterVerse recently (about time!) so as you can see at the top of this page, follow me @jewelz_hartwell for occasional quotes/thoughts and in-depth insights into the mind and inspirations of JHM!

With everything currently going on in the world and in our country right now…I’m taking a positive approach to it all by going harder than ever and Accepting My Sacred Role As An Artist ~ By creating Music that Uplifts, that Heals, that Inspires, that Reminds us of our transcendent Unity and Power to Create the Life We Desire …. YOU and the World deserve It! And I can’t THANK YOU ENOUGH for being a part of the Journey with me!

Until Next Time ~

-Julian
