By G.P. Avants

I wanted to share with you a musical piece that accompanies our new and up-and-coming book series, Chronolocity. We have create a musical sound track called, Chronolocity the Clock Opera. It is adding another layer to the book and its characters.

The Inventor’s Song, in out story, was written by our main character’s father, as a way to encourage his young inventing son. In it we learn about some famous inventors and their contribution to the world.  It also talks about not giving up on your inventive ideas when the road gets tough.

Below you can hear the song, that you an find along with others on the website,http://www.chronolocityhq.com/book/music/  or at BandCamp.com

Thank you to my brother who did the music and my daughter for narrating. Jared Moore did the voice of Levy’s Dad, Nole and my nephew, Noah played Levy.

Enjoy.

Dad: “Hey Levy, it looks like you’ve had one of THOSE days today.”

Levy: “Man, Dad, you have no idea.”

Dad: “Actually, I do. Remember that Inventor’s Song I wrote?”

Levy: “Ah, yes. Please don’t tell me you’re going to sing it now.”

Dad: “Sure, it’s the perfect time day like today.”

Levy: “Really? Now?”

Dad: “You loved that song.”

Levy: “When I was in like…third grade.”

Dad: “I think it’s a reminder to not stop dreaming, Son.”

Levy: “You’re going to start singing now aren’t you?”

Dad: “Uh-huh.”

 

devinci

Da Vinci wrote down his

Intricate plans,

With ink and parchment

Of dusty old tan.

A Renaissance man

He was called by some;

Inventor and painter for a time to come.

 

issac-newton

Newton’s color was

A brilliant red

For the fruit that smacked him

Upside his head.

It’s then he discovered

Gravity

Below that grand old apple tree.

 

gw-carver

George Washington Carver

Was just nuts about his plan,

To crack the secrets

Of brown peanut land.

We count more than

Four hundred ways

He made use of that nut

In normal folk’s days.

Levy: “Dad, are you going to sing the entire song, now?”

Dad: “Uh-huh.”

Levy: “Sigh.”

“I was getting to your favorite inventor, Levy.”

“I figured that’s where you were going with this.”

“Right.”

“I bet you think I am going to sing with you?”

“He’s your hero.”

“I think you see the light.”

 

edison

Edison caused

The world to see,

With the yellow bulb of

Electricity.

How many times to make it right?

I’ve lost count but that man was bright.

henry-ford

Henry Ford built a factory

On four black tires

For his Mo-del  T.

Because he built

The motor car

We can hit the roads

And travel far.

einstein

His friends were green

With jealousy

When Einstein discovered

Relativity.

When E equals MC

Squared,

They called him a genius

Even with crazy white hair.”

 

angry-kid

“Not all scientists have wild crazy hair.”

“No, just the really smart ones.”

“Uh-uh. Thanks.

“And the mad ones” (sinister Igor laugh)

“Dad? DAD!” (Dad still laughing)

“Son?”

marconi

“Marconi first cranked up

The radio tunes

With invisible music

Through the wild blue.

FM AM XM stations,

Bring his waves

Across the nations.

 

prototyping-my-invention

Gold is the color

Just for me,

The inventor who is yet to be.

Give me some time,

Give me a chance,

And I too will shine

My work will dance.

DaaaaAAAAaaNce.

 

fatherandson

“See, when you smile, the sun comes out.”

“Thanks, Dad.”

“Don’t loose your sense of humor, that will keep the mad scientist in you sane, trust me.”

“Gees, Dad. You’re going to do the robot, aren’t you?

“Of course.”

“Only my dad”

“Son, this is our dance. Don’t tell me you’re too cool to do the robot with your dad.”
