Lyrics
I See You


(i) try to hold -- this moment
the essence -- of being me
i know -- your present
i sense -- the ever-branching tree


(i) fly free -- at the speed of light
raise me -- through a tunnel
filled with my life


(i) float away -- through the ceiling
someday -- you'll understand
try to hold -- this feeling
i know -- you hold my hand


i c u


i <3 u

the benefit of emotional distance provided by time: this is partly based on my memory of the sound of an Emergency Room - and the idea that it can be matter of life and death in such places...

thanks

Did you make your own keyboard loops and cut them up for this? I like the truncated phrase that repeats and the fluidity of the vocal - then it's all Isaac Hayes and stuff. Very nice. Blippy.

take a drum loop and play it on an electric piano. tweak the notes and the accompanying chords until they sound nice together. now split the piano track into separate tracks that each contain only one or two of the pitches from the initial track, so they can be panned and faded in and out individually.

glad you liked it!

thanks

Love the beeping, poinging
blips. Oh, that is so inviting. Then, you get all existential with that studly voice. And then, you samba-lypso, half of the time sauntering and the half of the time approaching purposefully. Dangerous and endearing, Smokey. So freaking creative! Thanks.

This just got better and better
as it went on. The strings, electric piano and rhythm take me back to a sense of the 70s. This is very nicely put together, and the evocative lyrics give it a unique feel that wraps up the rest of the package just perfectly.

Great piece!
Be well,
Doug

Bill ....
Like Len ... this demanded multiple listens and a download. I must tell you how innovative and original this sounds ... but then you are the great VW and this is what you do. Impressed and smiling ... Thanks Bill ... a great audio trip !!

When it hits that moment it changes the air current in headphones. I like the keys in this and the drum arrangement. An exceptional song! Downloaded!

I like your spoken word pieces
and the background is groovy. (is that still a word?) I don't know how you manage to mix deep calm with frantic haste, but it's very creative. :-)
