Look all above
Walls of concrete and glass
The world below
Matters no more to them than us

Question the call
When there are rules to be made
Because it’s all about their debt when it must be paid

It’s a well-known game no one would like to defy
But I’ve got my edge to admit it:

When their interest is gone, you’re all on your own
Looking out for a way
It’s a matter of trust –
Are we here to abide
To the flags that are waving?

Music is indeed the universal language. In modern times, that sentiment could not be more accurate. In a world where the press of a button or the click of a mouse can quite literally put the world at one’s fingertips, music is both heard and spread on an international scale.

Once upon a time, if a band/song/album captured our imagination, we could not wait to tell all our friends about it, make them a tape, or call them over to listen with us. Now, our friends and like-minded musical acquaintances are not always across the street or around the block. Now they may be states away, miles apart. Now they are across the ocean or around the world.

Through the medium of the world wide web and its many arms of influence that reach out to us from all sides, we are exposed to so much more than some of us who were around before that phenomenon existed could have ever conceived. Blogs, newsgroups, peer-to-peer, social networks, and all kinds of outlets are constantly feeding the universal music aficionado’s appetite for new and interesting things. They satisfy that desire for music that more often pleases our ears, but sometimes challenges our minds and hearts.

My first exposure to Yuval Ron and Residents of the Future’s music was via such an outlet. Yuval has invited me to give his material a listen. Needless to say, I was mesmerized and thoroughly impressed by this Israeli outfit’s sound and style. So much, that I blogged about it, wrote reviews, and told all my friends about it. Via the internet, yes.

How amazing that I find myself, as an American, listening to jazz fusion, a genre created and perfected in my own country, performed by a group of young Israeli men, that I otherwise would never have known about were it not for the global reach of the internet, to bring it to my ears. How gratifying, that I find myself so impassioned about their music, that I must tell everyone of a like-minded musical persuasion, that they, too, must open their ears and hearts to hear it.

I truly believe that my experience with this band is a harbinger of things to come. This type of “virtual” word of mouth, is indeed the wave of the future. No longer are we separated by borders and boundaries. No longer are we limited by distance and time. No longer should we be culturally illiterate or bankrupt. We, as music lovers, share a common vision, a common address. The world is ours…we are indeed “Residents of the Future” ourselves. And the world-wide web has become the “Residence of the Future”.
