Originally, rock poet/urban assault flutist/songwriter Polly Moller intended to call her third album 'Tacit Blue', after the lead-off track. She had some blue aircraft-themed album art all picked out. Then, in quick succession, she suffered some serious personal losses. Lots of lyrics came pouring out of Polly in 2001, relating to those traumas in her life. She wrote five new songs which transformed the album, and changed it's title to 'Diogenes.' (You may recall that Diogenes, the Greek Cynical philosopher, was said to travel the land by day and night holding a lit lantern, in search of an honest man. According to the legend he never found one.) The songs cover subjects as diverse as arranged marriage, experimental aircraft, river deities, ancient philosophers, and bayou spirits. Composer/performer/bandleader Polly Moller improvises on the flute and bass flute. She also composes, creates performance art, and heads up a revolving cast of characters called Polly Moller & Company. Since 1995, she's recorded three solo albums and performed in diverse venues all over the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Polly has been awarded grants by the American Composers Forum Subito Program, the American Composers Forum Community Partners Program, and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts. Her recordings have been released on Albany Records, Pax Recordings, Mindspore Records, and Silver Wheel Music. Keep an ear out for the new album, NOT MADE OF STONE, on college radio and look for Polly Moller & Company on tour in the Pacific Northwest in October 2007!
