Back in 2007 I put together the music for this song, and I have spent the last six years or so thinking of ways to add lyrics and vocals. Yesterday the answer popped into my head, so I quickly set to work.

Note that only one hemisphere of a dolphin's brain sleeps at a time to keep the creature from drowning, so its dreams likely merge reality with oneiric wonder.

I agree. Nice piece of music. Sort of reminds me the Thompson Twins or talking heads and a touch of Bowie A great mix and ambient style here.

Firstly, it's so good to hear a new Dr. Bowles tune. Secondly, this is a superb Dr. Bowles tune. I like the classy way you've blended the vocals into the accompaniment as if the words are moving through the fluidness of the music. Fitting to the subject. Nicely done.

Thirdly, I was just thinking of you a couple of days ago and was on the verge of writing to see how you are doing. smiley

Thanks, guys! Rebecca, I'm doing quite well, actually. Family is fantastic, my book of Aztec and Mayan poetry is getting good reviews and is up for some awards, I have another collection of folk tales coming out soon. We are going to Huatulco, Oaxaca, in a couple weeks, which isn't exactly like Hawaii, but is pretty close. How're things out your way?

what an interesting smorgasbord of sonic flavors!
trying to hear which element has the most influence here, and can't put my ear's finger on it.
1:20 - the wiggly synth voice in right ear is subtle but adds so much.
2:19 - good bass burbling there….
your vocal has a beautiful dreamy quality.
dolphin dreams reflect the light - what a lovely line!
all my thumbs are yours,
Anne
