This is a middle-of-the-night improvisational poem and vocal landscaping built upon a keyboard meandering I'd recorded weeks earlier. There are some problems with popping on the spoken part but I feel that re-recording would probably ruin the mood I had going about an hour ago. This poem is just free-association guided by experience. I really like how this has turned out.

Keyboard, poetry, vocal landscaping: Carla J. Patterson

Thanks so much Dirigent! I love to read that.

And Garni, my friend, your comments make me very happy. I so love to do something with the keyboard experiments I make and, this time, I ended up with a result I really love.

I can truly see the influence of being here on iComp in this. I feel so much more easy-going about sharing the things I try - I've always been very experimental but haven't always felt comfortable sharing the results.

"If I open myself to the universe, what will happen to me?
If I close myself to the universe, what will happen to me?"

This is something so real, something so important to understand and to ask ourselves... What is our relationship with the universe? Are we connected or not? I found my answer in the music. And it is a positive answer: music connect us. And I mean, for real! There are rhytms, and notes, that can take us really away in a far far land, without travelling at all.

So here's my anwer: If we open ourselves to the universe, we become music. And this is all I need to know ^^


Thank you Carla for this amazing work. I can't call it a song. That's why I'll call it Pure Art...

Nice reflections of yours ,I think we need to stop sometimes and measure ourself against a big contest like the Universe seems to me that its real center is in our mind .It's with our eyes that we see,with our ears that we hear with our minds that we understand actually is from our senses that we perceive the Universe therefore you become its center ,and last night your center was active and you saw the universe around you and now we all enjoy what you wrote .Thank you for sharing.

Wow, it's so great to know that this speaks to other people, too. It feels so personal and, in a way, self-indulgent but maybe much more universal than I'd realized. I appreciate all of your comments a great deal. smiley

You know... while this was playing I was chanting C-Jeep, C-Jeep, C-Jeep. I love the piano vibe. I used to tune in to the late painter Bob Ross TV show... not to watch what he was painting... but to hear the relaxed sound of his voice! haha. This is a similar experience. Very soothing. Great post! Cheers Jeep. ~Kingaling

This really calmed me, was feeling a bit agitated, but now much more peaceful. I love the philosphic words, they resonated in me, and the backing fits it so well, you have a lovely voice, soothes me for sure.

Thanks, and you're welcome, Santarii. I love hearing it had that effect on you. I also listen to it when I want to chill out - this one and the one I did with Nick_W. I notice, more and more, the music I make is stuff that I want to hear myself if I were flipping through stations on the radio or shuffling tunes on my iPod and soothing music is definitely at a premium for me these days. smiley
