Al·an Co·hen Ex·pe·ri·ence [al-uh n koh-uh n ik-speer-ee-un ns] -noun
The Alan Cohen Experience is a collaboration largely between Alan Cohen & Seth Kroll, but often includes other musicians, producers, and friends. It is a vehicle to showcase song writing and recording, as well as music and comedy videos. Concept albums have always been at the foundation of the Alan Cohen Experience, and “Space & Time” represents the second effort in this endeavor. Alan was so surprised at how poetic Stephen Hawking was able to portray theoretical physics, that he felt he needed to poetically interpret the poeticism in musical form. Instead of creating a universe-destroying paradox, he recorded his best album yet. Go figure.
A note from Alan:
My new album is called "Space & Time". I read Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" and wrote a song for each chapter. Good folks, this is my follow-up to the "Revolutions" concept album I recorded in my basement a few years ago. This one was recorded with Tony Goddess in Gloucester, MA. See Tony play a steel guitar with his band Papas Fritas here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmixAF5jxFw
