STEMS AVAILABLE - Know Harm STEMS - 180bpm by brunswickextras


You looked after us alone
You looked after us alone

My hypothesis was wrong
And I paid the price
You will come to know harm

You may not have noticed
We turned them inside out
We're ready to believe you
Just give us a shout

You looked after us alone
You looked after us alone

My hypothesis was wrong
And I paid the price
You will come to know harm

    Very cool things going on here! I hear Thom Yorke influences.

    You got a strong radiohead going on in this song.

    The 6th release of our 52-week project is a track called Know Harm. This piece comes a project called War Lore from a few years ago, which was an experiment in sampling acoustic instruments. Nearly all the instrumentation in Know Harm comes from a few notes I played on my violin (which is about all I can do on violin), and a djembe hand drum. The samples were stretched and pitch-shifted to create the sounds of cellos and other noises you hear in the song.

    The concept came from the phrase “you will come to no harm”, a reassuring statement. But when it’s changed to “you will come to know harm”, it takes on very ominous quality. For me the lyrics are about how we try to protect ourselves and our loved ones from hurt, but how pain is often an unavoidable part of life. The shifting meters and irregular rhythms in the song reflect this fear and uncertainty.

    Remixers take note: This week also marks a Brunswick first, in that we’re making the stems for this song available on our second Soundcloud page, which you can find here. Know Harm STEMS - 180bpm by brunswickextras/
