This tune began as an experiment, composed using a generous helping of diverse self-recorded audio as raw materials. Most of the original recordings were made in different tempos, in different keys, and in different places. Most of them were made with a different song in mind, some with no song in mind at all. As the pieces fell together and my mind filled in the gaps, the undeniable underlying groove began to emerge in all its funky splendor.
This track includes (in a thoroughly rearranged fashion):
Guitar recordings from Steven Polendey in Virginia
Vocal recordings from Emma Staake in Washington
Viola recordings from Zak aka Plantrae in Oregon
Musicbox, chimes, porcelain sounds I recorded in Virginia.
Footsteps, sticks breaking, pine-rustling, and inaudible subliminal whispers I recorded with Kyrstyn Pixton in Oregon (along with a mysterious sizzling sound that was saved on her field recorder's SD card).
Handclaps recorded with my friends Matt, Kaylyn, and Jason.
As well as additional synths, synth bass, electronic drums, arrangement and rearrangement, composition and recomposition, mixing and mastering, and other such assorted geekery by yours truly.
There are so many more recordings in my collection and so many more to be made. I'm looking forward to hearing what comes from future projects like this.
I was really tempted to add this to the growing list of tracks I am selectively hoarding for future releases, but if any of you need a little bit of light in your life like I need a little bit of light in my life, I can only imagine this tune will come in handy for more than just myself.
Thanks for 100,000 listens, here's to the next 1,000,000. ;)
