“I am thrilled with how this song came out. During the recording sessions for the album, I remember waking up one morning wondering what was going to happen that day and not having a clue what direction the album would take… and I was thinking, “Man, this is a grand experiment!”. And as I was lying there I thought of the chorus, but my original version was slower and more of a keyboard thing…then the band got to it and Mike had the rockin verse idea and it developed from there. The video was shot and edited by my son Chad. Hope you all like it!”

この曲が発表できてぞくぞくするほど嬉しいよ。アルバムのレコーディング中は朝起きて今日は何か起こるんだろうか、方向性の手がかりもないし・・・って思ったのを覚えているよ。それで考えたんだ、「これこそが A GRAND EXPERIMENT じゃないか!」ってね。横たわってコーラスを考えた。だけど私のオリジナルバージョンはスロウでもっとキーボード向きの曲だったんだ。バンドに渡したらマイク(ポートノイ)がロックなアイデアを加えて改良してくれたよ。このビデオは私の息子チャドが撮っているよ。気に入ってくれるといいね!

For the first time ever prog icon Neal Morse came into a recording session with his long-time friend and collaborator Mike Portnoy, Randy George, Bill Hubauer and Eric Gillette…with NOTHING! He had no prepared material at all.

Neal comments: “I wanted to see what it would be like to create freely in the room with no preconceived notions. It was quite a risk!” On previous albums, like the Testimony album for example, Morse had the entire album written in advance. “I used to be rather paranoid about whether things would turn out in the short space of time we had available…so I would fill all the space in advance!” This album was totally different. “I made a lot of room for the other guys to create and express themselves and the result is outstanding! We wanted to experiment, do something a bit different, and see what everyone is capable of…we found out…in SPADES!” The results are obvious! This was a “grand experiment” that produced something far beyond anyone’s expectations! The main disc, containing 5 tracks, 2 long prog epics that are sure to be favorites for years to come, as well as 3 shorter songs including the catchy rocking title track “The Grand Experiment” is sure to blow the minds of all prog fans and appeal to anyone who loves hooky song writing with virtuoso performances from some of the best musicians in the world. The Grand Experiment was mixed by Rich Mouser.

「何の準備もなく全てセッションでアルバムを作るのは結構なリスクだよね。」 NEALは前作 TESTIMONY では前もって全てを書き終えていました。「前もって準備している方がしっくり来ていたんだ。」今回は全く違うようです。「今回は他のメンバーにも自由にやってもらうことにしたんだ。結果は最高だったよ!ちょっと違う事をやりたかったんだけど上手く行ったようだね。」 “THE GRAND EXPERIMNT” は5曲から成ります。2曲の大曲、プログエピックと3曲のキャッチーな小曲が収録されていますよ。                   NEAL MORSE
