I like this one a lot. I wrote & recorded it around 1997 - just before my daughter was born. I was listening to Bowie a lot and really starting to appreciate Mike Garson. I think this is the last song I have written with lyrics. It is also the first song I remixed when I got GarageBand.

This song makes me realize that I need to start writing again.

Hey, this is 1.Outside or quiet the feeling of it. Very dark and vaporous.....Love to hear your voice a little bit more.

Yes, I don't even think that I knew at the time just how influenced I was by 1.Outside and Earthling. Of course, I stayed as far away as possible from David's vocal style on this one.

Thanks

thoughts from the bull...

wow. i really like this. it's definitely not a genre i would normally seek out, but it's all-over-the-place nature is actually refreshing against the sound of most mainstream music.

i'm not sure i could take a whole album of music like this, but this piece represents itself, and as such, i am allured to all the motion going on within it. there's no pretention about it... the song simply occurs. it's like peeking into a vein to watch the blood pass through.

very glad i checked it out!

Honestly, I did not enjoy listening to this, but I don't think you would (or should) want to change it to suit me or anyone else. I really dig the lyrics. Is this music difficult for me to appreciate esthetically, or do I just not like it? I do not know. Wow.

Thanks KDMan! I know you didn't enjoy the song, but at least you gave me an honest opinion. I cherish that.

As a bonus, your multiple comments (inadvertant I assume) were enough to put this song into the top 5 briefly!

Thanks!

hahahahaha! That's serendipity for you... KDMan's multiple comments put this song in the top ten, which is how I rediscovered it... and peeking into a vein to watch the blood pass through... the only thing better than this comment is the fact that it's actualy true.

PS I can also recommend the quite peculiar experience of having woodguy32's new widget song playing in the background on iTunes when listening to this song... another happy accident.

I like the way you use noise in your tunes, such as this one... it adds a nice grittiness. The overall scruffy feel of the tune is great.
