Ancientvisionz Interview Jaime Page Dark Universe

Read the interview on Ancientvisionz with Jaime Page (Me!) on all things Dark Universe.

 

1. How would you describe your music?

I think my music is always evolving and can be difficult for me to categorise as such. On any given day it can veer from dramatic and heavy to bright and tender. My original intent was to create music that hard a dark, ethereal beauty.

2. What gave you the idea for the single title? 

Weight of the World reflects a crushing weight of oppression. It is quite universal. That oppression could be political, societal or simply the weight of one’s own expectations. The song title is often the starting point for my writing as it gives me an image in my mind’s eye with which to paint the music. I love titles that imply heaviness and I guess Weight of the World does that!

3. Do you work together with others in the writing process?

My songs are always fully formed before I present them to the band but I leave heaps of room…

I mentioned this tune in a post earlier this year about the new album coming from Jaime Page’s Dark Universe (read all about it) and it has haunted me since I watched the video. It is such a beautiful tune, and the fact that this live-version just about breaks my heart and heals it again is really something. Spectacular performances from the band and a special mention for vocalist Donna Greene who is just astonishing (as always).

Give this a listen, and read my interview with Jaime Page. Find out all the details about the album on the Dark Universe website.

Page had this to say about ‘If’:

From Jaime: If constantly reminds me to tell the ones dear to me that I love them. It also tells a story of loss and wishing you had taken a different course in life. Ultimately though, it serves as…

Dark Universe Review Matt Kenney

Matt Kenney is one of those folks that you instantly feel gets you. I had to post his blinding Facebook review here because he shares some very insightful thoughts. I thank Matt deeply for the following article. JP

Holy Sh…
This is an amazing Album.
Kicking off with the Dark and Beautiful Deepest Black, a moving, epic , act, that is testament to the long and varied career and personal journey of the extremely talented Jaime Page. With such rich life experiences there has evolved a master writer ‘full of deep feeling and emotion, and the talent to reproduce this in the most beautiful form of music.

Next up xxx27. An energetic galloping number beautifully highlighting Donnas extremely potent vocal strength.

Letting go is a gentle lighter serve with outstanding production and again the vocals.
The absolutely brilliant Dark Universe. What an outstanding title number.

“If this doesn’t go down as one of the best rock productions, I’ll eat my scrotum.”

This is musical theatre at its best. Powerful, emotional with a palpable dose of feeling.
Goodbye Angel rounds off this feast of finesse and the latter part showcases perfectly Jaime’s skills and well-earned title of Queen of the machine. I thoroughly enjoyed this journey.

The writing, arrangement and production are mindblowing. But this would mean but nil, had there not been musicians with the required depth unquestionable ability, and foremost, the feeling, to interpret and touch this music in the way necessary to bring it forth as it has been here.

This is art at another level. Pure and performed with a level of feeling and finesse rarely witnessed. A privilege to behold.

I get the feeling that there were many equally momentous songs, not included in this presentation that could have been if not for the restriction of disc size. I am looking forward to the future unveiling of these works for us all to enjoy.

My hat goes off to the hard work evident by all the crew involved in bringing to surface this gem.
