The story so far: 1983, Paul and I were making music under the moniker "Söftware", which has endured til today. Back then we were wee lads with access to rudimentary electronic music equipment. We would do these "off the floor" jams and decided to do one in the theme of "whale". This is recorded live to cheap cassette before dinner. Part 2 is after dinner. Remastered just now.
At the Aquarium
SERENE the silver fishes glide,
Stern-lipped, and pale, and wonder-eyed;
As through the aged deeps of ocean,
They glide with wan and wavy motion.
They have no pathway where they go,
They flow like water to and fro.
They watch with never winking eyes,
They watch with staring, cold surprise,
The level people in the air,
The people peering, peering there,
Who wander also to and fro,
And know not why or where they go,
Yet have a wonder in their eyes,
Sometimes a pale and cold surprise.
Recorded in Niagara Falls, Canada. Söftware Studios. 1983
