Lyrics
i'm building up a sculpture
one voxel at a time
chocolate rabbits
i'm building up a picture
one pixel at a time
candy corn
daffodils
chocolate coins

i'm building up a song
one sample at a time
autumn leaves
a meadow lark
candied apples
white snow drifts
a cricket chirping
slices of life

a green leaf drifting down the stream
a rainstorm
slices of time
blue sky
thunder rumbling

a grain of sand
dark gray clouds

snow falling

a green rock
children laughing

the silver light before sunset

the wind blowing through the trees

a blue robin's egg

chocolate rabbits

the night falling

clouds

i'm building up a sculpture
one voxel at a time

What a long strange trip it's been
You had to be committed to do this piece. I won't say where to. Much enjoyed - head scratching and all. Trying to grasp the concept behind the dimensions - do explain. The swimming voices are pretty amazing.

you had to ask! there is an analogy going on here:

3 dimensions - sculpture - voxels
2 dimensions - picture - pixels
1 dimensions - song - samples

there are also 3 different songs blended together here.

except for that 20 minute "relaxation tape" (http://www.macjams.com/song/30708 "Ponder Then Awaken") this is the longest of my tunes to date.

there actually is some intentional stuff going on in the mix here...

thanks Bud

thanks - glad you liked it - it was a fun experiment in chaos - i think i was thinking about "Revolution Nine" a little while doing this.

i've been real busy with work and stuff at home. i guess that's the source of the energy behind the chaos here.

this song is a construct of three songs that have been partially done for a long while... each one alone just wasn't going anywhere. together they have become whole.

thanks

All my favorite memories incl. Rock & Roll
I close my eyes, the sound of your voice has not changed - calls me home to New England and childhood, I am transported back through time. I remember the happiness in simple things. :-) Peace Bill :-)

you found part of the theme in the lyrics - cool! i was going for universals...

thanks for listening and commenting

I like all the various textures... like the overlapping, evolving patterns and visual kaleidoscopic rhythms that leave large-scale strobed temporal trails. Hm, this tune makes my mind wander: good work.

the three songs in here are in different keys with different tempos and different styles and moods. they really don't "want" to be mixed, but it works in a way. it's a sort of flood of feelings as a result - and somewhere in the process i realized what the title needed to be.

each song is a separate GarageBand project. i ended up tweaking each one several times to make them mix the way i needed them to. the spoken lyrics were added as a fourth element to really drive home some concepts about dimensions and elementary ideas/sensory inputs.

thanks!

I have
not got a first clue of what's going on here but I really,
really like it whatever it is. It goes in very deep and is extremely powerful. Superb.

glad you liked it - understanding is probably not a goal here - more like confusion & chaos - so i think you got what's going on all right!

thanks

thanks - i poured some personal negative energy into this and it turned it into a fun project - it's almost therapeutic.

Well, sir...
...with a song title like that...bound to attract some kind of attention...

...where do I order the chocolate rabbit sculpture...?

Love the sweeping theme with the beat still steady...then the vox and the move away from the beat...

...nice, nice piece, SVW...

hmmm... i hadn't even considered trying to draw attention. the title came up as a good description of what the song was turning into as i worked on it. (and i have no idea where to find those rabbits any more.)

thanks!
