David Place’s third studio album, ‘Rollercoaster’, is out — complete with the title track, and its music video, discussed below. Speaking to TruthExcites.com, David explains how life and being lost have forged his romantic, immersive art, through a compulsive explorer’s restless liberation.

Celluloid shadows float us behind memory, from footage found online: a reminder of the web’s influential energetic creation of consciousness-centres from connections; as predicted by George Tesla, whose birthday fell earlier this month, in his prescient anticipation of a cyber Jungian universe.

The track is ‘Rollercoaster’, and the video draws us up to a skylight of nostalgia. A backview of guitar-playing frontman, David, invites us to share his music-borne feelings. We ride the rollercoaster’s rickety lift beyond gravity, to a stone-grey, imbued with hot brightness by clear shadows in dimmed frames. This is the primordial playground lived by his daughter, Emily, as she makes a model rollercoaster from coloured bricks — ‘red, blue and grey’; wielding and feeling shape, colour and styling: the physical detail that charges structures with their form’s emotion, and a gallery of the imagined, which — like twilight bedroom curtains — awaits the artist and the dreamer with nightmares, bliss and beauty.

Observed not experienced, Emily’s hyper-reality shimmers on the fanfare of her senses, and David’s dreams. It is a euphoric monochrome, its colour drained by time’s and viewpoint’s displacement. A French levity skips through simple frames with halcyon grace — the font of the descant of cooling notes that twinkle in a street’s noon, and voice its dappled life.

The rollercoaster alternates with the grey sunshine of the band in a garden: blending, visually, with the utopian fairground, and its impossibly generic joy, and keeping prominent the process of observation, and the empathic voltage between dreamer and dream — a gap spanned by this song.

‘I used to see her in the morning … with the blocks red, blue and grey’

Pre-vocals, a chill trumpet-lullaby hints at seaside puppet tragedy in its mellow querulousness, through which David’s voice then walks, thinking aloud; the more resonant for its unstylised spontaneity, in a movingly bare revelation of new fatherhood’s enhanced insight, his words passengers on melody. Repetition of ‘rollercoaster’ chants gentle enlightenment; percussion-teased along trammels, and immersed in the trumpets’ rising sea which — like all sound, as opposed to point-source light — envelops us profoundly from all sides. The trumpet, in particular, echoes his Bari neighbours’ Sunday morning soundtrack, which serenaded his new life there.


We are sitting on a small balcony, late on a Saturday morning, having just drunk some perfectly prepared, cap-insulated coffees, conjured from the empty reception area of his ‘Olive Tree’ hostel. It is a few hours before the weekend check-in rush, yet he is relaxed and gives his all to the questions.

When did he start playing the guitar?

He tells me, to my surprise, that he was 23. At home in Australia, his teenage younger brother had been the musician, leaving David to express himself through football.

Did that play a part in motivating him?

“Yes”, he says. “I envied my brother — I envied the fact that he could sing …”

Coming to Europe gave David the creative privacy to make music his language, too — ‘locked in his London room’. Perhaps it emerged from the same sensibility that made angles and spaces in soccer, through ratio, dissonance and consonance?

Does this, third album have a theme?

He explains that it is simply autobiographical. 6 years in the making, it is an expressive interpretation of his life’s progress in the round, not seen through an isolated element.

“I tend to write a lot about depression and addiction … I have suffered both.”

Springing from that dark emotional reservoir must have made for a rich ascension: replacing black lethargy, and introverted quickfix-craving, with an equally compulsive — yet opposite — quest to explore, understand, and create anew — from the energy within.

The album — of which ‘Rollercoaster’ is the title track — is diverse. It features banjo jazz in places, and is largely without electric guitar, apart from ‘Roundhouse Blues’ (his favourite). It comprises the best — and so perhaps the most deeply felt and story-relevant? — songs of this transition; from London’s deep concrete and its spherical thought-freedom, to the demanding summer-strobe of establishing, and multi-tasking in, his own hostel — nearly every day.


After a while he ‘can’t listen to the music that he has written and produced’. Old imperfections irritate his progress-hungry drive; and even more, like Soul Asylum’s poignant and ultimately exploratory ‘Runaway Train’, he needs novelty. Curiosity is fuel amidst the joy of controllably navigable adventure — a heady post-perdition philip.

Like the track ‘Rollercoaster’, the nostalgia of which was refracted from new life, David’s song is borne of listening, not dreaming: of exploring experiment, rather than theory. Perhaps listening’s attendant empathy — discernible in his ego-free openness which sought to acquire, and not dismiss, his brother’s musical language — fuses creativity with the giving inherent in his hospitality business?

His easily dovetailing subconscious and conscious minds not only juggle incoming ideas with daily business, but also promote his music efficiently — letting those ideas rise for the world. His hard graft in online genre-matching draws hundreds of YouTube clicks per day for ‘Rollercoaster’ alone.

!!! WHAT NEXT ???

A constant flow of gigs will make way for a tour of Europe next summer, playing with his valued bandmates: double bassist, Umberto Calentini and guitarist, bassist and percussionist, as well as producer, Tullio Ciriello.

As regards new music genres, he is open to exploring everything with emotional resonance — ‘anything that can evoke’. He will promote ‘Rollercoaster’ as much as possible, helped by a publicist friend.

Despite love of experiment, he still ‘tends towards the sad song’. His tour partner from some UK concerts last year praised his true gift for melancholia, yet suggested he could ‘cheer up’!

“ ‘Lost’ and ‘Roundhouse Blues’ (his favourite) are both perfect examples of my being a loner, and trying to find myself”, he affirms.

“Every three or four months, I try to find new music — my tastes change”.

His use of ‘find’ instead of ‘create’ again suggests a live explorer, who, having found himself, now interprets the world — at the instant of discovery.

Have there ever been any random things that have inspired him?

He describes meeting a New Zealander, on a Conticky Tour around Europe. Repeated group requests to play ended up outing a spectacular, yet relaxedly self-effacing and human talent, which inspired and encouraged, deeply.

“He was a big motivation”, continues David, who prizes modesty and humility as well as artistry. Is that humility liberating, removing the ego’s display-pressure, and enhancing outward vision?


The authenticity of ‘Rollercoaster’ makes it beyond genre.

The focus on selfless parental love, in a sector of music where romantic love often dominates, reminds me of the shear emotion of melodic rocker Kim Wilde’s 1988 ‘You Came’ dedication to her niece. 

The tint of halcyon-playground construction-in-the-sky reminds me of the fine art film ‘Spiral Jetty’, documenting Robert Smithson’s 1970 earthwork sculpture in Utah’s Great Salt Lake, where a summer’s day, and humming camera-plane, are heat-dazzled witnesses to a semi-unseen superstructure.

Life is both questing David’s music source, and the context that blows it to us — upstream, through a chain of sight, as we watch him observing his offspring, through the vintage shade that invites extrapolation — and adventure.

As George Tesla would have noted, his only way is forward.



By sculpting Cubism, StourSpace’s Dialogues of Space fuse audience with exhibit, in a remix of the viewing experience.

A video projection, through a hanging cascade of angles, flickers a bonfire, high to the roof’s iron canopy; warping the screen’s orthogonal truth, as interruptions stretch fixed image detail through a frozen waltz of vanishing points.

Base-pegged lightening shimmers like a volcanic graphic equaliser, burning our immersion in the part-extruded plane: the LookingGlass exhales from 2 dimensions to 2.5, and the movie joins its viewers, discussing life and dreams with them, in one, social, season-rustling kaleidoscope.

Tube lift announcements massage and amuse, as we re-live them without commuting’s sweaty fatigue. Snow scenes repeat image as medium, the snowflake-esque installation seeming to project itself, squared beyond space.

2 dimensional works continue the fractal circuit, as we hover between minds, lines, light and shadow, with depths carved from shape, with enlightening psychedelic agility.

And, for this of all exhibitions, TruthExcites.com recommends you go to tonight’s opening launch party, at StourSpace, Hackney Wick, London: only with a weekend-sized throng can electric dreams truly unite.

And only when they do can you know where they will take you!

Barack Obama’s presidency had one truly great thing.

That was its slogan, ‘YES, WE CAN’.

Optimism, springing from our boundless potential, has run through electorally successful leaders, good and bad, from Reagan and Thatcher, through Blair and Obama, to Trump.

But are conscious free will, and its great, inherent power, easy to forget?

Can malign, even faux-optimistic authority infect us with invisible delusions: assumptions, which seem obviously true, yet which — when we look carefully — fail logic, and vanish, like a looped rope being pulled straight?

!!! DOMINOS !!!

All reality ultimately consists of chain reactions. They reach us when we see them. Research, discovery and enlightenment is retracing their history to their origin — like following starlight back to source. We then chart their journey and author.

The sound- and light-energy signals which enter our brain as our knowledge’s fabric, along with our breathing, eating and drinking, all drive our physical output of creativity and work.

We are ‘tori’ — doughnut structures, with a hole right through us (our digestive tract) which conducts energy. Being more advanced than worms, humans have multi-channel output, yet the channels still span us completely, thus fitting the flowing, processing torus model.

As Morcheeba sang, we are ‘Parts of the process’.


As tori, we are part of an evolving, source-driven universe. Another part is Planet Earth’s orbiting of the sun. We term this 940,000,000,000 metre concatenation of circle-forming positions a ‘year’. That named event then describes other causal chains, using the number of its occurrences to which they correspond.

That number is ‘age’.

Examining this carefully collapses our notion of ‘time’ to causality.


Left unconsidered, ‘age’ can seem like a ethereal background absolute, separate from the developing universe it measures, sliding us incessantly to this life’s end. Yet ‘age’ is actually just a count of the coincidences of our evolving lives with completed orbits of the sun by the Earth — something that does not effect our genuine inputs of breathing, eating, drinking and social or spiritual reception.

But merely assuming that age is our upstream controller makes our happiness depend on a planetary orbit: a parallel factor, projected onto us from a system outside our control. This makes us feel helpless — even though a second glance would tell us that it has no governance of our condition. The festival-spangled calendar’s fellowship of delusion makes acquiescence more attractive than challenge.


If we feel subtly doomed, we can lose sight of the power of our own choices.

We can forget that our condition isn’t being pulled anywhere by completed orbits of the sun: that we are not being carried by an imaginary river; but that, rather, we are a real river of causality, which we control.

We can harmonise, feed, give and ascend in causal freedom, without limit, and independently of our grounding on this plane, in the gravity-wired solar system. 

We become wise to authority’s imposition of manipulatively blinding rush, and we gain an exhausting, yet euphoric, imperative to act.

!!! YES — WE CAN !!!

Further, if we can untangle the ‘time’ construct to parallel chain reactions, so we can explore freely everywhere. Seeing the big picture doesn’t need computers, textbooks or jargon — only our minds, which can drink from multiple streams, without having to feel their way around a house blindfold, as with equations’ single lane comparison feed.


We can’t stop the Earth orbiting the sun.

We don’t need to! 

This external unstoppable doesn’t effect our health!

Why not scrap the notion of age, and swap it for an overall body condition and wellbeing index, akin to BMI? This would free us from a layer of subconscious fear: a transparent, friction-heavy film of palpable yet groundless misgiving.

The assumption of decline would be gone, replaced by attention to true condition optimisers, like diet — and by exhuberant ambition for this life and the next, whatever the nature of the causal transition.

Enlightenment’s happiness hormones boost immunity, and project our being further and better! Greater prosperity and generosity follow, with harmony-based resistance to the vampiric authority of bad governments who would farm our energy.

Myths need shadows to seem real. Debunked, the oppressive notion of age collapses before Grade 3 pupils’ knowledge of planetary orbits and parallel events.

Then, the road to nowhere stops sliding — and the American dream spreads health and civic autonomy, through wealth beyond currency: an enlightened, unlimited, comprehending connection.

Is Justin Trudeau’s official, shabby bribery of independent Canadian media a timely wake up call to free thought and expression — and financially ill-conceived from his viewpoint?

He has launched a scheme offering extra funding to media organisations which mould their operation to gain his approval.


This comes just as the #TechLeft’s Silicon Valley, located in the communicatively free US Body Politic of the First Amendment, has created a Cyber Politic realm where its censorship applies, and which has — over the past decade — become the main debate arena.

This Cyber Politic extends around the world. A digital media platform has become an international country, with laws that wield more society-shaping power than the US government — and which wants to use them to impose its values on the public.

Moves like Trudeau’s are helping this distortion of world consciousness — and beginning to effect politics significantly, as Globalist Macron’s election in France over Marine Le Pen, and Facebook’s silencing of conservatives and Infowars, pre-midterms, showed.

But people are starting to realise what is happening.


By sponsoring those who will sell him their journalistic independence, Trudeau reduces the credibility — and thus the monetary value — of the media companies who accept his #GlobalistShilling.

With stark clarity, this attempted bribery will show the awakening public, by default, who they can trust.

UK reality star, Luisa Zissman, declared on a radio talk show that there shouldn’t have been a British EU membership referendum — since governments are chosen to take big decisions for the people.

TruthExcites.com argues that this contrived, defeatist deference to opaque globalist power is a general millennial trait — and, psychologically, a very unusual one for a youth movement.

Examining Luisa’s assertion, it should be noted that governments are chosen according to which policies they promise — meaning the democratic system is designed PRECISELY for public decision making.

Further, when then-PM David Cameron called the British EU referendum, it was a public vote, amid a uniformly pro-EU establishment. It was, thus, direct democracy in a situation where only a specific in-or-out vote could give the option of EU exit.

If you read the feature on Luisa’s statement, linked beneath this article, how does her tone strike you?

For me, behind the contrived argument that EU membership’s pros and cons are beyond people’s grasp, lies a querulous denial of human potential — and of her own.

The notions of a public’s proudly, dutifully surrendering big calls to leaders, and of governments’ license to withhold votes when they oppose public will, are anti-human and defeatist — in a way typical of some millennial movements whose surrendering of self-belief has been a condition subtly imposed on them, by a post-Rock’n’Roll education, as a requirement for zeitgeist membership — and for ensuing social and professional opportunities.

Opinions ventured in support of this entrenched, politically correct hyper-modesty, ring strangely: is it their lack of reason which seems to give them a defensive, almost-tearful intensity?

Are they driven by want for a mission? Has problem-free Western prosperity left millennials without a project to establish their generational identity, or their belonging as individuals within that generation?

Thence could arise the need for an ill-defined yet all-pervasive richteousness, credited them by a self-styled trendy authority — in exchange for taking their decisions! It is an authority licensed by MTV and the pseudo-liberating, calculated glamour of globalist media, who make thought-diktat palatable by having its acceptance a necessary license for a mind-drugging form of hedonism, the obligation of which kills true eroticism — along with the mind.

This subconsciously established contract supports universities’ thought-fossilising snowflakism, as an army of lecturers and faux-progressive mentors attack individualism to sell oppression — by virtue merely of its contempt for the supposed sepia-primitivism of a semi-mythical old order.

Appearing to subvert parental education, the mentor-class remove the inner belief which that very thing instils: they are, indeed, the #BigBrothers of globalist authority, which erodes the family to steal the soul.

Millenial ego’s need to own the views, which — subconsciously — they know have been projected onto them, makes them cling to snowflakism more tightly. Theirs is the praise, and the cool — and the loss of mental independence, self-confidence and any true capacity to act.

Without realising it, they have made themselves an obedient, orthodox congregation, in a twisted church whose only — and squalid — aim is to gather power for its managers by hiding thought’s light.

The end result is a fear of the self — lest its still, small voice collapse the false euphoria of deference to the group-feed. It manifests as a strange, illiberal modesty: a politically correct self-effacement, like a modern version of Victorian etiquette, whose mantra of cool belonging is that ‘authority knows best’.

Such entrapped pessimism dripped miserably from Luisa Zissman’s needy assumption that ‘no deal’ would naturally PUNISH leave voters — instead of being their STAIRWAY TO FREEDOM, and away from the toxic weight of #StayMay’s lead anchor.

No wonder former ‘Sex Pistols’ punk revolutionary, Johnny Rotten, is a Brexiteer.


!!! #LightWeb !!!


In 2016, vox populi surfed social media’s currents, sharing uncensored thought with enlightening multiplicity.

It powered Trump’s win.

That anti-establishment tremor triggered #BigTech’s skewing of the web against newly oxygenated libertarianism. And, sure enough, Marion Le Pen then lost to Globalist Macron in France, where — as before the 2018 midterms — Twitter and Facebook purged thousands of conservative pages, and notably those of large alternative providers, like Infowars (whose brand reached the UK mainstream media as a result of the dispute).

People talk of the criminal dark web’s danger, as the black market’s unlicensed online home. But, for political debate, the presence of regulation, not its absence, causes problems through the trammeling of bloggers’ enlightening currents.

So, do we need a #LightWeb?

This would be uncensored, and thus with full, First Amendment freedom.

It would require those who prize free speech to set up tech companies to cover every stage of internet communication, from long distance cable and server provision, to software platforms, search engines and payment systems, so that conservative websites, social networks and individuals would not be vulnerable to legal no-platforming by Leftist tech companies with snowflake agendas. Given the Left’s near-monopoly in Silicon Valley, a potential grouping of tech-libertarian service providers would have a huge and growing market, just as nineties FOX NEWS did, when they breathed life into the Leftist cable news sector.

A libertarian set of web infrastructure companies would safeguard the Right’s voice online, whilst leaving the Left’s voice justly intact — and letting the logic of multiple human minds be the perfect judge, without the falseness of any government-imposed net neutrality: a meaningless concept, given, in a universe of innumerable ideas, the non-existence of a thought median, about which to be balanced on any given subject.


Just as the free market has boosted economic liquidity, through liberty’s creativity, so free speech — and now social networking — have accelerated information exchange, personal evaluation and distillation of Jung’s collective conscious.

Million-fold verification is cognitive karma, since, if data and discourse are relayed through a series of independent minds, falsehood atrophies and truth forms a viral crystal.

This process is multiple, organic and peer based, needing neither judge nor censor. Accelerated by autonomy, the internet’s recent advances in society’s data-current density have highlighted wealth’s communication base.

The notion of prosperity becomes a matter of attunement: to physical surroundings, via a healthy diet and respiration; and also to conscious surroundings — to other people. In the resulting harmony, the psycho-physics of perception, wisdom and communication optimise energy flow, understanding and our universe.

One of America’s many great virtues is its conversation’s directness which — aside from current snowflake susceptibility to politicised thought-alignment — avoids concept-loss through appeasement, qualification and false compromise, that afflicts mainstream British debate.


Simple truth keeps viral resonance.

In 2020, it will need it.

In order to continue, the #MAGA revolution must spread from Trump’s worldly wise 2016 voters, to the college-educated youth vote, ensuring that the maturing of university millennials onto voter registers effects his base positively.


An open web — the world’s university — and America’s myth-busting open eyes, make such a leap very possible, even inevitable.

Trump’s calculatedly brash 2016 approach, siphoning free advertising from Leftist mainstream media outrage, leaves intact the universal principles of his wisdom, and their easy, pithy communication amongst webwise free spirits — as long as there are platforms which host them, fairly.

A constitution-loving MAGA coalition, for 2020 and beyond, might well fuse the robust, American dream with its 21st Century ‘hipster’ corollary of Aquarianism: a spiritually questing belief in the individual’s ascension, and in their developmental and giving capacity, from the absorbed, enriching value of personal life path: not from one dictated by an external authority source.

How can we make this happen?

Can we actually use the principal that only truth’s resonance multiplies — so a totally unregulated platform will become an enlightened crystal: the #LightWeb?

This article is a call to action.

It is a call to make thought both liberation and tool, powering currents of intelligent consciousness against doomed political oppression, and releasing the logic of creation: the planet’s capacity to understand, as an internally interconnected Tesla brain.

Truth excites: authenticity has an enquiry-stimulating resonance, which draws in the listener — just as data-bearing light ‘excites’ an electron, making it vibrate.

TruthExcites.com is now a blog. As Silicon Valley censors social media, can it become a replacement social network?

On it, speech would be absolutely unfettered, and people — as with democracies — would be the thinkers and the judges. This would also make it naturally, universally popular.

Let’s wire consciousness free.

Gravity’s existence makes masses collect — allowing the retention of sufficiently locally dense matter for a multiplicity of permutations to trigger life, which can then reach out.

Does that mean that heterogeneous energy density supports consciousness, which, once born from versatile, option-rich local bond density, then fills in the cosmic gaps?

Is that where we are now?
