your energy is off (w/michael 2)



 Genre: Industrial

Get Flash to see this player.

its been said to me a couple of times in the last couple of weeks by different people....'your energy is off'....so it must be true

this is a version of michael's recent upload 'i'll do what i like'

like michael - i am having real trouble getting into a music making vibe and everything i do music-wise seems to be a bit of a struggle (where as before it was almost effortless)

this is partly because i have been distracted by a number of video projects over the last 6 months or so and i have learned the hard way that when working with video it will suck more time out of you than making music ever does

anyway, ill stop moaning and just say that this tune actually derives from the most recent video project i have been working on...back in march i was asked to film the performance of a butoh dancer (debra) along with an experimental music combo called the RPM orchestra...it has been a fun project. i also decided to chop bits of the audio up which was provided by the rpm orchestra...so the industrial chugging noises you hear and the feed back sounds are all coming from them...i shared the loops with michael thinking that nothing would come from this...but i was pleasantly surprised very quickly that michael pulled a loose structure of something like a song together incorporating the loops...so i built on his idea which included a piano motif, a bass drone the RPMloops the feedback noises and it sounded great as is....then i got it back and added my bits....some tweaks on the drums, some keyboard chords and a load singalong vox

far from being finished - who knows if it ever will be - michael's version is closer to that that mine

feedback noises, cavernous percussion and feedback: the rpm orchestra

things were connected together by michael 2 and piano melody and synths added

i added some extra synths and some vocals

michael's version is song 73374 on macjams and can be heard here http://www.macjams.com/song/73374

picture of debra minghi and the rpm orchestra is from the performance of butho plus music which took place in phoenix on march 17 as part of art detour 24
