Description
This tune starts at Glastonbury and ends up at Woodstock. Think Moody Blues meets Santana or something like that. The reading of William Blake's poem 'London' comes from http://www.youtube.com/user/SpokenVerse - a great source of readings by a fellow who goes by the pseudonym Tom O'Bedlam. I recorded most of this during the Olympics.
Opening section uses orchestral drum loops - a cut up and tweaked Mandolin loop - some wind and rain effects including a church bell found at freesound.org - and my keyboard and bass playing.
Part two is my guitar, bass, keys and vocals with drum loops.

Thanks to Smokey for hosting the festival - and to all who have been submitting and or listening.

Fascinating work! Blake's poem is powerful. The guitar sounds are superb. The "Someday" vocal (is it from "I'll follow the sun" - a stark contrast to the Blake work?) gets inside my head because of its tone. Excellent arrangement. Impressive music, Kevin!

Thanks Philip
The vocal is not from "I'll Follow the Sun" - but I love that song. Who knows - maybe it is and I just don't know it. Brain worm.

Moody...
...but definitely not blue. There's a mantra-like quality to this track that just kind of sticks in the bones and won't go away. Compelling and understated vibe that evokes a quasi chant from the choir. Would work with monks as well as the rest of us who are on a contemplative journey. In short: I like it!

Still a restless youth - lol
It's all music - and this was a fun experiment. Actually changed tempo too - from 100 to 110.

Cool. I've always wanted to do something similar to this. You do it well. It feels like it stays pretty much spacey late 90s brit-rock all the way thru for me, not that there's anything wrong with that..

The Blake was a great find
that guys site is well worth checking out - he reads a wide range of work - and prefers to remain anonymous. The backwards guitar break was created with Audacity. Thanks for dropping in.

Nice transition from the spoken word to the singing.I like the panning and the choice of FX throughout...Hope your "recording spree" continues.You have a lot of imagination and talent to boot.

I was a little concerned
about the panning guitar in part two - so I backed it off some. Thanks for noticing.

Cinematic beginning
and I enjoyed the way it progressed into a cool jam. I'm digging on the the guitar tone choices and the backwards guitar is icing.

I use the Line6 GearBox
for guitar, and mix settings with the ones in GarageBand. It's amazing what you can find. I'd love to design a stomp board to switch between presets on the Mac for live playing. Is that even possible?

Maybe with MainStage
MainStage says you can import settings from garage band. If so, you should be able to create patches out of them and use a foot controller to select the patches.

Well you got one heck of a lyricist...
Pretty interesting how well William Blake speaks to our age, isn't it?

After the spoken piece, I really like the roundness of the bass tone, and the drum loops certainly sound like someone playing along with you...You've got some neat guitar tones going, too, Kevin...
