ALÉ (alias Ale’ Gonzalez Gomez) es un cantautor multifacético y multinstrumentista/compositor/productor crecido en Boyle Heights en la ciudad de Los Angeles. Sus influencias musicales comprenden punk, rock, electronica, ritmos latinos; todos ellos, sonidos característicos de Los Angeles.
Con un talento característico para producir, agrupar genios musicales en sus filas, componer y cantar tanto en ingles como en español. Su conocimiento para atraer diferentes audiencias con su música va mas allá de las fronteras de genero y lenguaje rompiendo barreras y creando su propio genero e idioma.
Como productor y director general de los estudios localizados en Los Angeles, “Operating on Dreamtime”, ALE’ es un maestro con la técnica y un núcleo para talento musical en la region. Su primer album, “Irregular Heartbeat” atrajo fans y los cobijó con ritmos dominantes y melodías mezcladas con humor y susurros suaves. Esta vez, él regresa con un nuevo disco, “Dimensions”, el cual comprende canciones adornadas de ritmos para bailar e himnos llenos de fortaleza, poder con juegos de palabras y mensajes tanto en ingles como en español.
Every damned day…the routine. Forced into a system that slowly erodes our spirit, that slowly bleeds our life force, we have no say in how we live. Sure, you can "make a ton of money and make your own rules." Sounds easy when you put it that way, but most are shut out of that route…unless you're willing to break the law or hurt others. The old money system excludes most of us from this playground.
Is this the way life is supposed to be? Ha! And we all thought we were evolving. We thought this was a real civilization. Turns out it's still a plantation. Show up to work and do what we say. Yes, we're in agreement: it pisses us all off.
And lately, the screws are increasing in pressure. The infection of stupidity isn't even being hidden anymore. The lies and subterfuge are dangled in our faces daily. Breaking news takes our world down a small notch, at the top of every hour. Turning off our media channels allows for a short break from the madness. We never consider it much, but we find our refuge in The Arts.
We bath in music, visual art, and other disciplines where the human aesthetic found in self expression, takes us away from an insane world. You may see a movie, or buy an album, or go to a museum, unconsciously looking for hints as to how to avoid a dystopian future. Feel good about living, or do it? We're made to suffer a world controlled by others...unless we escape. The unforgiving machine steals your life force from birth.
Hell is guaranteed.
Antsy...you can't sit and take it. Your spirit is committed to "going out and getting yours" any way possible.
We break free, only when we go to a place where the icy fingers of our arcane system of life can't reach us. We retreat into the darkest cracks of our minds, and immerse ourselves in the beauty, completely untethered to modern man's desire to submit. Modern man's habit is to submit for meaningless treats which do not sustain us.
Fight your imprisonment with weaponized art. Drink deep of the heady elixirs, produced by your self-expression.
Don't become lost in the belief that this also, will last. Our arts are under fire…we are dogged every painful mile.
Media channels are dismantling of quality art. This process is sold to us via pronouncements that this low quality expression is, "what the people want."
And they are right as long as we don't fight back. We're sick with distraction and are desperate to find ways to live being reasonably happy. That elusive taste of high quality artistic expression, is poisoned by a system that wants you to consume low quality art scams. Art can influence how a society thinks. Perpetuation of low quality art neutralizes our need for "the edge" and starves off even the most passionate revolution.
Punk rock once scared the establishment. Now punk rock sells toys and youth clothing. Hip Hop music was once feared. It once sounded like music that ushered in those painful changes towards social equality. Now its made to sell drinking and narcotics instead of being a inspiration of self empowerment.
Are we dreaming? Is this really happening? Well hell yes! In music, Pop music still has the sugary content its always had, but now it's far less clever than even a decade ago. Technology has helped distribute content that is painful to consume…unless you voluntarily lower your IQ level. Fail.
Art manufacturing is a valuable tool for public propaganda. The masses are kept sedated by music that does not inspire, or even unrest over inequality.
This nightmare scenario is fought by we who spend our time creating art of all kinds. Artists express themselves in a way that reflect society's triumphs and ills alike. Artists document the state of the human heart, and current understanding of mankind's triumphs and fears. When one artist exposes a nerve, it stuns. When several do it, it becomes a movement. Artists work into the night, usually juggling tasks such as slaving, eating, and moving across the surface of this planet. These artists use every means possible to deliver the goods, as we desire to get the poison out.
Whatever the kind of art, the time for making it is increasingly diminished. the costs of just existing, pays tribute to the contemptuous overseers of our social systems. Artists work when they should be sleeping, thus creating a dangerous existence for those who undertake the responsibility of saving society from itself. This is the existence of the Baudelaires...of the Rimbauds. Perhaps we even know that saving society isn't going to happen, but they can at least document the downfall of man via the artists' expression.
Life or death, we will illustrate the beauty, dance across the fields of despair, all to bring a single breath of salvation. It is worth it.
Yes, these artists operate during the time they should be sleeping. They operate on Dreamtime.
When will you give up the time you're allotted to recharge, for your love of expression? How dare you fall? it is important for you to be heard, to say your thoughts, to speak your mind! This is what they will charge, your overlords. Is it killing you to keep it inside? Are you driven to enlighten others by letting them know they are not alone in their understanding of our world's decay?
Is it our responsibility to warn those who will listen?
Is this why we can torture ourselves with a lack of sleep? Do we do this to wake up others from the narcotic effect of society's self-termination? is it ironic that some give up their Dreamtime, in order to awaken those who are still in a systemically induced, mass coma?
We are here to inspire the reaction to the final alarm. We cannot allow this world to fall into the clutches of those who would create a hellish theme park of meaningless repose. Hell is a place filled with lost people who have no memories of a better way. We are the cold water dosing that will jolt our people into the joy and suffering of life, to embrace it all.
We operate on Dreamtime, in order to save a sleepwalking world from wasting away.
