Description
From the 2007 'Lost Song Project' challenge

I thought it would be nice to post this again. I included the Kling Klang Projekt 'making of' documentary...


So, here is the story from December 2007...

Sunday Morning,
Dusseldorf, Germany
December 2007
So there I was riding my bicycle down Mintropstra├če 16 when I
went over a bump in the road and my chain came off. I also
skinned my knee. As I was rolling on the floor in agony this
Mercedes Benz pulled up and the driver got out to help me. It
turned out that the driver and his mate were keen cyclists
themselves and they could see I was in a bit of a spot. They offered
to take me and my bike back to their workshop to get fixed up.
So, in the Mercedes I jumped and off we went.
As we were driving along, I told them about the GLASS song I had
just done and the Lost Song Project in general. One of the blokes
named Florian, seemed particularly interested in the whole thing
and said macjams sounded like a great place.
As we pulled up to their place, I noticed a small sign that said
KLING KLANG.
After they helped me fix my bike and gave me a plaster for my knee
they asked some more about the Lost Song Project. They told me
they were musicians, but hadn't been very productive in recent
years and wondered if they could upload something themselves.
They asked if I would like to see their recording space and help
them to record a track for LSP.
I followed them through the door of the KLING KLANG building and
sat down on the settee. The other guy, Ralf started pressing
buttons, making their studio come to life with red flashing lights,
electrical hums and weird bleeping noises. A couple of robots
walked in through the door on the left and one of them asked me if I
wanted a cup of tea. I said yes, and the robot went off to make it.
Ralf and Florian then told me to choose a synth to play. Their
studio was amazing...full of synths, samplers and drum machines
and all kinds of sci fi stuff. So, we started jamming a few riffs, the
robots were singing along and we recorded a tune.
My leg is better and my bike is fixed.
Ralf and Florian sent me away with this recording on my ipod which
although is not technically a lost song from any famous album, it is
still a lost song ...because unfortunately one of the robots spilled
my tea on the digital recorder just after I had it copied on to my ipod
and temporarily shut KLING KLANG down.
This is the only copy in existence.

Very Cool
Ya see, my twisted mind thought that the story would take a creepy turn. Glad it didn't!

This is very cool, trippy & different. Great stuff! Hope you still keep in touch with Ralf & Florian.

So cool and so well constructed. The mix and production are very well done.

The explanation part is a bit over my head (not familiar with the references). But it's still interesting.

Great track Bryn.

I missed the LSP so this is a treat for me.

I also enjoyed your documentation at the end of the track. Very cool how you revealed your inspiration and explained your process. I feel like I've sat in your studio now. So, is it too hot to go for a swim?
