Song Description

i awoke from a nap,
and i seemed to have had a highly spiritual dream,
yet sadly,
i could not remember it,
and upon opening my eyes,
there was my cat staring at me.

Your cat has a powerful spiritual intelligence
to be able to provoke a piece like this. The double basses and low vocals set the tone right off, but this really really builds! When other strings come in and the other vocals stack up, it's got some impact!

i actually intended to work on a different project this evening... but my experience this afternoon overtook my goal. i've never had a feline muse visit me - it is so alien... wish i knew what the lyrics mean

thanks

i'm glad you liked it. i constructed this in Garageband from several recordings of me improvising.

i happened to have recorded my cat purring just a few days ago, and it fit right in for the ending

thanks

that pic is by Louis Wain - a sad story - see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8MIe7_u_tA

dreams
I've had dreams like that... and my cat was nearby. Odd creatures if ya think about it... Great harmonies based on your spirit language.

And truly,
the cat thought, as it stared upon the recumbent human "just one pair of opposable thumbs away from planetary domination" then with a yawn and a contemptuous flick of the tail consented to have its tummy rubbed until it was time for tea..........

I like it ...grrrrrrreattttttt.....

awakened by the cat...
another case of Felis Interruptus. A narrow escape, Bill. Just 10 more seconds and you would have become cat-omniscient, and cat-atonic, be glad you awoke when you did. Your cat is practicing. Stay alert.

This is awesome. Great Benadictine chanting, in a SmokeyVW sorta way... the faux-lyrics remind me a little of Philos60 here. Has an almost American Indian feel too. A very warm satisfying piece of music, I liked it!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Good stuff
Cool layered vocals. The low sounding synth is pretty ominous. How were your able to record purring? I'm glad that I stopped by.

Cat does not have your tongue...
This has an almost spiritual chanting quality to it - agree with Drak (how could I disagree!) The harmonies are great to set the atmosphere above the drones and the way they grow in complexity throughout the piece is most effective.

Great work here Bill,
Thanks,
Doug

Animals
are far more in tune with us than we give them credit for.... and one way or another you were inspired to write/perform this piece and though it has strong serious sounds, it is also uplifting with the harmonies....very listen-able and I love the pic and the purring at the end LOL, Cheers M

Telepathic Feline? It could happen. Ha ha...
Very cool Bill. Like chanting Benedictine's attempting to cover the Doors' "My Wild Love"...

Strangely soothing. Your cat must love you!

Be well friend!

Very inventive
Left field for sure.

Brilliant work Bill :) I loved those vocals and the backing.

I've no time for cats personally although my dog likes them (to chase) - meow.......

Oh god the schizo cat
This was creepy. I think I'll sleep with the lights on tonight.

The background track was awesome, also. I kind of wised it was a little more prominent.

Great sound Bill
How'd you ever get your cat to agree to do this? ;)
Karen got it right - a personal fav of yours of mine ....... or do I mean of mine of yours?
Excellent vocals stand out!
Good one Bill.

Are you a figment of your cat's
imagination and just for a moment you shared in the cat's dream? Stay away from the catnip, Smokey.
You could end up with more of this kind of thing..which I enjoyed very much.
