Description
This song was initially posted by Alex Weiler (check out his page - his work is fantastic), who writes fantastically dark, powerful electronic music.
I was really hesitant about trying to put vocals to this, as the track worked so well without them. Eventually we worked on this, and got it into good shape... then I thought, as I always do these days "Hmmm, what would this be like if Philip (Racerat) put some guitar on this" (nudged along this train of thought by Mr. B. Dorsey, Florida).

Philip also mixed this, which frankly left both Alex and I slack jawed.

A great collab experience ... this sounds like the first track on an album to me, and I'd like to hear the rest of the album.

Lyrically, this was inspired by Alex's direction "Travelling without destination', and by David Cronenberg's movie 'Crash'.... oh, and a bit of TS Eliot.

This is a dark little journey... hope you enjoy the ride.

Lyrics
Converging

Buzing on the radio
We're always on the edge of something.
Take a ride where no cars go
Body humming like an engine.

And there will be no warning
We are children of the crash
We will come together
In the chrome and broken glass.
Then gone ...

Just a stone thrown at the world
You always hit the end of something.
Take a ride where no road goes;
A whole nation born in motion.
Autobahn of endless night,
Destiny on automatic
Fell the touch of cold airbag
Warm metal, sheen and static.

And there will be no warning
We are children of the crash
We will come together
In the chrome and broken glass.

Then gone ...

Converging, now.

Red light, green light!

Pushed and pulled in a crumpled suit
City lights that hypnotise
Take part in your ascension
Wearing holes in the fabric of design.

And everything will
Be well
Your revenge, in the end ,will
Be all well
Be all well
Be all well.

I think you caught the spirit of this piece in those lyrics Steve. Fab collab! Awesome sounds throughout!

Be well!

My PIANO!
Hey Yeman - many thanks for this' cause the piano was my only musical addition to this track... it of course makes the track complete (yeah, right).

Fortunately, i was surrounded by musical savants on this track, to disguise my bad playing!

cheers

That chorus is...
...your most Bowiefied moment to date (and you have a few let's face it!) Which isn't to detract from its brilliance, of course.

Ok, so no-one has to mention Bowie now:-))

You're right - it is a very dark little journey, but with lyrical light at the end of the tunnel, in the final "Be all well's"?

I love the lines:

Pushed and pulled in a crumpled suit
City lights that hypnotise
Take part in your ascension
Wearing holes in the fabric of design.

Wish I'd written that!

It a cracking submission. Great playing and production. I need to let it sink in with a few more listens though, as there's a lot going on. DL'd so I can do just that.

Great stuff all round.
Cheers,
Phil

Dave again!
Not Bowie again.

Actually, i was saying to my wife that I just dont get the Bowie thing.... then Philip sent the mix of this,and i said:

'Sheeit, that DOES sound like Bowie'.

I think this takes a while to sink in ... it's a grower, not a grabber, but it will get under your skin... like an ugly little rash!

cheers Phil

Previous to this...
...I didn't get the Bowie thing, to be honest. I know it's a common comparison, but I've never been so sure.

But this does have certain amount of ziggy stardust about it.

Right - moving on - no more Dave - honest:-)

Children of the Crash
This is a fantastic song. I loved it as Alex's original version and was amazed, but not surprised what happened to it when you and Phil got your hands on it. I'm still waiting to hear what Alex has to say! I bet he's blown away like the rest of us.

Great work guys! It just keeps getting better and better and better.

Since I was involved until the end i can say, that this was fantastic and pretty intense collab. I'm absolutely happy about how the song has developed! Thanks to Steve for having the great idea to get Phil involved in the second instance. Both did a superb job. Be prepared ... further songs might follow ...

Cupid In The Liner Notes
You know me, I always try to take full credit for great successes, and well, like so many of your other songs, I can't help but feel 100% responsible for the success of this one too.

Actually, my only real goal here is to get in the liner notes of every successful MacJams supergroup.

Since I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are many, I'll just keep trying my best to seek out talents that work well together and force them to collaborate. As I recall, it took about 20 separate emails to get you guys together and do this song the right way!

Seriously, I enjoyed witnessing the metamorphosis of this song. Every new element added, caused each of you to react and build upon it again and again. It really did get better and better.

And Steve, I don't think your wife is going to ever get rid of you. She probably enjoys shopping with your credit card while your sitting in front of your computer all weekend long. It sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Phil, your guitar is perfect. You shred.

Alex, you are working with some fun guys who really have a lot to offer.

Congratulations guys.

Thanks Bob for getting us all together. Certainly worth the 20 emails I think. Thx also for the kind words on my axe grinding. My favorite parts are the bass harmonics that pulse through it as percussion. It was fun!

That ending
I like it - it's like it all comes to a.....crash!

I wish I had heard the original, 'cause it sounds like my kind of thing. I'll have to listen to Alex's music soon.

I hear a little piano in there I liked (I was wondering if that was you), then I read in the comments that IS you. Great.

I think you're dead on when you say this could be a first track on an album. It has the right energy.

I don't think it's a grower, I think it's an instant grabber. And I'm gonna say that's Alex's doing, 'cause his piece sounds great.

Your voice is intense and gorgeous as always, and I like how RaceRat has blended your voice into the woodworks. I'm used to hearing you way up front (a blessing), but somehow, this piece needs the vocals to be a part of the score, especially given the crash chrome meets human theme in the lyrics, which are...what else...great. I like "chrome and broken glass"

You know, I heard Cronenberg has a new film, and from what it sounds like, I really want to see it.

echoroom said 4113 days ago (September 15th, 2007)
Yeah...
... the other guys pplayed ok, but the piano makes it. Cronenbergs latest opens the london film festival, so i'll be there!

I tried to get the guys to make the structure more obvious, and put another chorus in.. phil did this, and it was rubbish... it took me a while to understand the structure, but i really like how it flows.

Weird lyric... crash as a metaphor for sex and birth... i'm still getting new stuff out of this!

hope Bjork was good!

I envy you for your (and your accomplices') ability to turn everything into skycraping/superhighwaying epic songs. Best car song since Ride's 'Drive Blind'.

Feels like bit like this passage at the end of Crash when they're driving on LSD.

I think it's cause I come from the 80's , where epic was in... i struggle with kinda restrained stuff... maybe i should do a piano ballad?

I knew you'd get the arcade fire ref!

Is it as good as 'leave it all behind', though?

i love your voice in this one. and what a melody. you gotta clue me in on how you did all of that cool vocal production, did you use a bunch of partial vocal tracks with different effects and then just mix them in and out? i'm really blown away by how great this sounds.

My voice..

Guys - can you answer this one... it's beyond me!

steve
Check out my latest song called Light Sleeper
alexweiler said 4113 days ago (September 15th, 2007)
vocal treatments
i'll have to take a deeper look into the final mix, too. Phil did it and surely he changed a few settings. But i can tell you, that steve's part consists of at least 8 vocal tracks (falsettos, main voxes, spoken parts, a.s.o.) that all were treated differently (e.g. some parts went through a guitar amplifier, i doubled some tracks and placed them slightly time-shifted, delayed, slightly compressed, EQed and even spreaded). Before i started I peeked into some music (production) magazines and watched out for advices in some music forums. In order to get an idea how to treat steve's voice, i listened to some Depeche Mode songs ... this has become of it.

Phil is very skilled on this. Maybe can give you helpful advices, too.

Didn't he introduce Milli to Vanilli? Really though - your vocals are at an all time high here and I sense some of that has to do with Racerat's skills. Excellent guitars, writing, production - just killer.

No, wait.

This sounds completely professional and solid to me. Headphone candy all the way. Lots going on, and nothing in the way of anything else.

Tremendous vocal. Trying...not...to...say...'Bowie'... Doesn't matter. Just listening to it gets me thinking about vocal approaches and vocal processing and how to even think about it all...

This'll be another one that starts strong and somehow grows on me even so...

Steve and Alex did a great job on this. Steve's vocals and piano are stellar as usual. Alex's drums and synth work was the armature that started the whole sculpture, as it were. Alex had some amazing mixing suggestions that brought it all together at the end where we all instantaneously felt that it was "finished" which doesn't happen very often. (especially when you're working with Steve....ha ha...just kiddin'!)

It was a really complex song to work on actually-- in structure-- and really pushed my personal abilities, but Steve and Alex were immensely patient. Thanks guys. This was a blast to do!

guitar
Thanks Feter,
I was beginning to wonder if everyone forgot I did the guitars on this track as well, not just the knob twisting, or mouse skooching as it were.....I appreciate it.

the knobs
to cap it all:
phil didn't "simply" screw the knobs on the final mix & mastering and added all the guitars, he even created a new bassline and added some background fx!

steve didn't "just" write the lyrics, all the singing and piano play, he even gave the song its final built-up and contributed additional cymbals.

Whooo ...
Superb performances all round. I really like the combination of rock guitars and synths ... it takes some skill to do it well, and you've certainly cracked it here! Excellent.

Where's Dick?
I kidnapped him and am keeping him in the loft. Now I have my own guitar god I'll be able to do songs with more than four chords, mwahahahaha!

No, seriously, I think he's still catching up after his hols so I expect he'll be dropping in soon.

...hey, your security guys knew me this time! (Maybe it's because I brought beer....?) Another excellent job, Steve: superb balancing of different talents that form one formiddable piece of tune - smooth and sharp in ways that don't blunt the midnight, dangerous energy of the piece. You guys get the Big Thumbs Up all the way.

Another MacJams supergroup!

Simply excellent
Breath taken away and all that.

Amazing piece of work from everyone concerned. Quality just oozes out of this.

I love the arrangement, the singing, the lyrics, the production.

People should pay to listen to this.

Cheers

iTunes Shuffle
Hey guys,

This song came up on my iPod shuffle tonight and i have to come back and comment so that you know what staying power it has on me. It's one of your very best songs and I couldn't love it any more than I do, especially when it pops up on my shuffle.

Remind me to send Steve Jobs a Christmas card!

Excellent
OK, so it took me something close to a year to get here! What can I tell ya - I'm slow, but I get there eventually. Great song. I love the vocal on this, brilliant use of harmonies, and fantastic instrumentation. The drums are so sweet, perfect for the track, and the keyboards sound terrific. This is so professional sounding it's mindblowing. A superb arrangement, great performances, and wonderful production. Excellent. Nicely done to everyone involved. Belated kudos. Peace.
