Rebecca Williams sent me an intriguing track for our second collaboration. After a while I found a way for my more droning repetitive style to mesh with her gorgeous organic work, and it suggested the story of the twin gates of dream to me... you may have heard the myth: true dreams reach us through the gate of horn, while the gate of ivory, while more beautiful, is the passageway for false hopes. I wrote some lyrics and sang along... I hope you like the result, a sort of bittersweet song about loss and dreams.

Truly unique, and very trippy! David, you remind me of Rupert Hine is his Quantum Jump days.
Rebecca, you have created a very cinematic piece here, and the mix is stellar, too.

David, I logged in an hour or so ago when I got your message that you had posted this. I'd not heard anything since I sent you the beginning parts of this, so I was very eager to hear your twist on the tune. Right about the time I started listening on my headphones, my 19 month old nephew came over and wanted to see what I was doing. I put the headphones on him and he stood in rapt amazement. Then he became fascinated with clicking the play and pause thumb bar on the laptop. I've just now regained control of the headphones and computer to give some serious listening to your creation.

Wow! I'm loving the tree you nurtured my seedling to become. I had hoped some lyrics would find their way into this life. Boy, did they! Such a haunting tale, one I'll need more time to climb through in this towering oak. I am in awe of your abilities. Both musically and literally.

I now look forward to returning home (Thursday) to hear this through my studio speakers at a nice loud volume.

Thank you so much for taking this on and making a wonderful song of it. I'm really well pleased.

Fantastic collab. Love the vocals. I want to say they remind me of Peter Gabriel but I am not sure if I have the comparison right. Great feel from the whole track. I dig the flute sound and of course the percussion is perfect. I love the atmosphere that is created as well with all the different textures floating around. Brilliant job.

I pulled a U-turn in the street when I saw the names on this one. "Must play," said the sign. Wondrous collab. A lost gem from the 60's.

The Moody Blues...

But still a nice trip this one...
