Lost in the void


The 'sad cosmonaut' half remembers a hymn from long ago

surrounded by stars
surrounded by silence
surrounded by emptiness

the sun has ceased its glow

leaving the light to fade

touch the silence

the world is set on fire.......

darkness casts its crushing veil and hurls the stars out of the sky

all thats left....



bryn: i didnt play anything, i added some ambience and some vocals
cat: i played everything, wrote the words and sang

a hymn
for some reason this song reminds me of 'we are the dead' from david bowie's diamond dogs...even tho it sounds nothing like it

interestingly, my 'interventions' on this piece were extremely minimal and 'automatic'...the sond truly built itself...

i changed a few of the sounds that cat used and added a few vocals but really did not tweak and sculpt this...it truly 'just happened'

i have never really sang anything with such a hymn like quality before...

cat is a lyrical genius and is able to convey moods and textures so effectively through her words and melodies

please take a listen and leave a note

touch the silence
Wow very sad indeed. My helmet is coated with tears on the inside as I float morosely in the void. Cat's vocals are lovely as usual. Super seductive deep pads and echos. Very lush. Well done.

Wasn't another version of this posted a few days ago? If so I'm probably repeating myself here. A beautiful melody sung beautifully!

the hush of stars
The slow thoughtful pace of this made me hold my breath, Cat's (and Bryn's) vox were perfect here. The backing synths were gently subdued. Perhaps a bit less across-the-brain-phasing would be good (at least in my headphones that was distracting from the mood.) Overall, solemn and wistful beauty. Well done!

treatment of this recording..... love the synth sounds and the 'space-iness' of it..... it has a very 'Holy' feel about it, so I can understand the Hymn reference..... vocals are perfect here..... a real sensation of floating free in space, regards M
