Description
A few months ago, I asked Char if she would let me edit her voice into an electronica song, and she gave me this amazing piece to work with. I added the instruments and beats. I had initially planned on something more abstract, but I don't think this song could have come out any other way. These are her wonderful lyrics:

When I was young, the world was laid out for me
Before too long, someone took control you see
He ruined each and every happy day
I was a victim to all that he could say
When I was young, I knew nothing of the world
It became a pit into which I was hurled
I decorated with pictures of desire
Sacrificed my soul on a funeral pyre
Don't you live a life that is nothing but lies
Don't let yourself love anyone you despise
It is your right to claim the world for your own

Thank you all for any and all comments on this song.

I do like the
emotionally charged, almost macabre sound of the music. I write what I know but don't quite understand, even now. I didn't give you much to work with and yet you produced this visceral and dramatic piece. I enjoyed the collab and am pleased with the result. I hope a few others like it, as well. Thank you, Mike.

Too young
Incredible. Haunting and totally spaced out. Such an impressive melding of talents. Is that Ralph who pops up here and there?

You
are so nice to take the time to offer some support for this fairly unique piece. Absolutely, Ralph begged to be included. He is such a pain in the ass. Thank you so much.

There isn't much to say about me. I have only been doing music for a couple of years now, as you can probably tell. I love weird electronica, especially IDM like Autechre and Aphex Twin. I can't play any instrument outside of the computer (I wish I c... [see more]
