This is rock music, evoking the moods and sounds of the sixties, enhanced by the use of symphonic orchestration and several unique forms of expression.
“Monument” differs from most standard music projects. It’s visionary. It has an overall concept, a message, a theme: the passing of a generation and era that has had a profound impact on the whole world, The Sixties. A sentiment that’s shared by a few hundred million people; a prospective audience long neglected, available and welcome.
The music is visual by nature; ready for a following video-version. It has a written story; it’s movie-friendly. It has a well-planned continuation: full album; following albums; full catalog. This large-scale vision is similar to that of the concept of Star Wars - in music.

The EP is essentially ready. It's ready as a "glorified demo" - as it was designed to be. The project's goal is to elevate an already great music product to fully professional levels and make it available for large audiences.
My musician / producer role is long-established. In addition to fronting seminal bands in renowned circles ranging from large concert halls in Europe to the hollowed stages (like Max’s and CBGB) of New York City, I have also completed full-scale studio productions for major record labels (Universal Music among them) in high-end environments.
Artistically, this project is more substantial than most; it’s a show of styles, interpretations and actual characters (somewhat like Sgt. Pepper’s with a very different theme). I created it. I can produce it. Can you do it better?
The finished record will be released as “Monument - the EP”. Its performer will be The Paul Gabor Orchestras - with featured guest artists added to the credits. (In addition to a roster of top session musicians I invited a junior symphonic orchestra and a multi-drums unit. The doors are open for other participants).
(Young and junior musicians’ participation is, and will remain, another aspiration of this project, establishing a future continuum. This will create a fresh, new dimension and expand its reach to younger audiences across wide geographic and cultural areas).
