A jazz/electronica jam using Mandika's(spoken word iCompositions artist) poem Played. Once again Mandika's rhythmic recitation style made it easy to find the right groove. Only the drums are loops but bent and warped to my will. The bass part is a sample from a recording I made some time ago with a bassist. Both Live and Logic were used to create this piece. Thank you to Mandika for permission to rework her recording

Played by Mandika

I tried to reason have

a colloquy in due time

My so called girlfriend came knocking when

she entered my mind

I thought she was a friend but she smiled to


It took everything in me not to call on the lord

Told me he was creeping

Messin round today

He done played me

He done played me

He done played me this way?

My countenance so distraught

from still loving my Boo

Always been right here

Staying down for you

In a matter of an hour found he had

gone astray

He done played me

He done played me

He done played me this way?

Alas i gathered bearings and withdrew

from the flo

Ironed out the wrinkles walking through

those doors

Mending my punctured heart though

emotions intensely soar

He don't love me

He don't love me

He don't love me no mo
