New Ideas (featuring APOD)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
From Bryn:

A little while ago, I was experimenting with midi volume pedals and guitar amp software in an attempt to re-create the 'frippertronic' sound.

As a by product of playing around with the guitar I recorded this chord sequence.

I sent the results to Cat, Michael and Kevin simultaneously.

Cat sent back the ideas vocal track that you hear here.
APOD added all kinds of weird and groovy stuff including ebow, synths and a certain esoteric quality that is indefinable

So what we have here is a merging of the two lots of ideas coming from very different points - all blended together through the particledots mixer

At least two more very different versions to follow

From Cat:

I know I've been scarce here, but when Bryn sent this very-cool guitar riff over and asked if I wanted to add to it...of course I did!

Awesome blendering, B! Thanks for the invitation to come out of retirement ;)

NEW IDEAS

Don't gimme any new ideas;
I don't wanna think anymore about you and me,
About you and me.

Don't gimme any new ideas;
I don't wanna cry no more about you and me,
About you and me.

I'm tired of new ideas,
I'm tired of promises;
I'm tired of feeling lonely, looking out at everyone, and
I can see it in your eyes
You had never realized
That love is more than a word,
That love is more than a feeling,
That love was more than your idea.

Don't gimme any new ideas;
I'm moving on, you see.
There's no more you and me.

Don't gimme any new ideas;
I don't wanna think no more about you and me
About you and me.

Really nice!
First of all - the production here is really very good - it sounds really complete.
A quite catchy track you've got here, and I really like Mysti's vocals (which is very lovely to hear again)!

Very nicely done!

Later day Pop!
I am amazed by my fellow MJ'ers that can just complete each other's ideas and have such wonderful results. Can't wait for the others to follow, but this is tough to beat.
