Galactic Folk (genre) = folk music mixed and produced in Dolby Atmos & Spatial Audio format, a genre imagined by Nelu Lazar... 🎼❤️🎵🎶 … 🎧 & 🔈 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔈

My original manuscript of the song didn't have any title, but during the production I named the song "1997" because this was my very first composition ever, 25 years ago, back in the year of 1997...

My collegemates were the first to hear my song in 1997, and I'm sure they will be thrilled to hear it finally recorded and published to the world.

The cassette tape with my draft acoustic recording of the song from back in the year of 1997 got dusted over the years, but it still reflects the emotion of the moment and the reasons for this song actually being composed...

The storyteller Dave Grohl - my hero, along with Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, inspired my very first composition 25 years ago… Now tried by yet another loss (sadly on the same day of the releasing of this song), from drummer to drummer(s), I dedicate my song “1997” to him and his brothers at Foo Fighters et al...

I mixed this song in Logic Pro with Dolby Atmos, for 5.x/7.x home theater systems. On Apple Music listen to the spatial audio Dolby Atmos version... 🎼❤️🎵🎶 … 🎧 & 🔈 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔊 🔈

Intro (The Seasons' Journey: A Serendipitous Rock Opera)

🎧 Buy song | Exclusive 1999 recording | Stream | Watch | Lyrics

The second song of the rock opera The Seasons' Journey still doesn't yet introduce guitars and other live instruments.

I rewrote the original acoustic song by converting it to string instruments such as contrabass, viola and violin.

If you'll listen carefully, you'll hear some spatial resemblance of brief segments from the first song "Intro" throughout "The Departure"...

Oftat și Rugă (Sigh and Prayer)

🎧 Creative Commons Share Alike | Stream | Watch | Lyrics

I wrote "Sigh and Prayer" on December 22, 1999 praising heroes defending humanity, with deep sad thoughts about the souls lost ten years back in 1989... I re-recorded the song in a moment of serenity and reflection in late December 2021, and now it is offered under a Creative Commons license to all people, and to future generations, for eternity.

The song was recorded with a Martin StreetMaster GPC15ME Acoustic tuned Full Step Down D G C F A D, a Jay Turser bass, a Romanian shepherd's flute (fluier), an LP cajon, and shakers.
