Sunsetrip - original musical recording project by Alex Cosper
In 2020 during the pandemic/shutdown I've continued writing for websites. I've worked remotely
completely since 2011. Music has been more of a hobby for me over the years, but I've also been involved
with it professionally through radio and research.
These days I'm still writing and recording songs at a casual pace. Most of the songs are part of a "mirage band" project called Sunsetrip. A mirage band - a term I made up - is an imaginary band with imaginative songs. It's essentially a funny name for a singer/songwriter that wants people to focus more on theme of the project than the artist. Here are some of my recent recordings mixed with my cartoon art on video.
Eye of a Raven
I originally wrote this song in the 90s when I was in the Beat Villains. It's a song about exploration and freedom, from the perspective of a raven.
Rock N' Roll Saved the Day
"Rock is dead" is a common claim that's actually been around since the sixties. Alternative rock has faded from the pop charts. But then again, the pop charts have been buried in the current wave of "more bands than fans." Rock really isn't dead and this song salutes it as an evergreen form of music and culture.
A Century of Radio
This song is a tribute to the radio industry's 100th anniversary in 2020. The lyrics tell the story of how radio evolved throughout the 1900s.
