Description
This song started life as Still 105 - a beautiful acoustic guitar and ambience track that Bryn created and dropped in the box a little while ago when it was still 105 degrees in Phoenix on a fall day. As happens so often the song went in more than one direction but the basic feel remained intact as Michael added vocals , mike garson style piano derived from a photograph and some cacophonous jazzy drums - and the mixes went back and forth.

Micheal:
Used ultrabeat for drums,
percussion is a sampler instrument of rocks being hit with sticks and then put through a pitch shifter and a delay.
XILS3 is the little synth line on the "choruses"
also took Kevins bass line and ran it through a pitch delay and panned it, which ended up sounding like a synth as well after I chopped it up and played with the placement.
did the pitched reverb trick again on Bryns original track (the reverb/pitch shifter was on a bus).

Bryn:
Acoustic guitar and monotron synths

Bud:
Bass

always fun
this was great fun for me to play with (as always), but what really made it for me was that even though Kevin had some real life things to deal with, he was able to slip in under the wire. love playing with APOD.

on a side note: the jazz drum solo was actually done with EZDrummers jazz kit, and the piano was done with RGB (a program that takes any photo you load and converts it to music). I put a picture of my daughter in and got that wild piano thing.

The acoustic and vocs add warmth, and the deep pads add depth. Very hypnotic and relaxing.

..
loving these harmonies and chords - sounds like its being beamed from a no-too distant - yet distant planet that might be shining over the fields from above as I open a beer,stare up at the sky and wonder how the hell I ended up here - in wonder rather than bitterness
