“Invasion” by Patrick Cowley - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Patrick Cowley has left a legacy of electronic music that moves us far beyond it’s meaning since there is so much mystery to his own talent. It is known that Patrick worked on many projects during the late 70’s infusing his own version of keyboards and sequencers to elevate dance music even more so. It was hits by disco star, Sylvester like “Dance (Disco Heat)” and “Stars” that moved him into the early 80’s with his own trademark sound.
“Technological World” is Patrick Cowley’s final project before he was taken from us by AIDS - it was a tragedy in that Patrick had only begun to inject his sound. There could have been so much more. “Invasion” is the second track on the LP which uses a science fiction theme to move the landscape of bustling keyboards and bass sequencers along.
I have taken the 1956 science fiction film, “Earth vs. The Flying Saucers” to fill in the soundtrack and give Patrick’s disco track some vivid life. The film was directed by Fred F. Sears and is one of the best Saturday matinee sci-fi flicks to date.
