The Streets Dissolved



 Genre: Dance-Club

Get Flash to see this player.

An attempt to recreate the sense of trepidation you feel when a hurricane is tearing the place apart. (In this case it was Rita, just as it changed from a tropical storm to a hurricane.)

The rumblings and the rain are both genuine Rita.

And the sand road next to our house did dissolve.

thanks for letting us in on the experience.... the Rita sounds are very
clarifying, the guitar sounds like palm trees in the wind.

Thanks for listening. Interesting comment re the slide. It seemed appropriate, though I wonder if I should mix it down a bit.

scary line
"the streets dissolved"...that's a frightening thought...probably
because roads seem so permanent.

At first I was thinking that there was too much water in the
mix, but sheesh it's a hurricane!

The breakdown in the middle where the guitar riff appears in
isolation sets up the second half of the track nicely. I like the
techno element, which normally isn't my cup o' tea. Nice song.

I tried hard to put non - wanky lyrics in this, as the tune itself is rather melodramatic. Hurricanes put you in that frame of mind.

I must say that we got off lightly, with lots of trees coming down, one narrowly missing our house, the roads getting messed up by the storm surge, and everyone's roof losing shingles.

But no one was hurt. Other places did not fare so well, so contribute to the various funds if you have not already done so.

Musically, electronica is not really my thing, either. I was thinking New Order when I recorded this.

More when our phone line is repaired!
