The Thirsty Earth

Description
We had floods earlier in the year, but the earth swallowed up to five feet of water in a matter of days. This is the soundtrack it inspired. It sounds more appropriate for a beehive now!

Thanks, KC
The story is up above. In the picture, you can't see the hundreds of bubbles as the air escaped the ground. But they suggested the business in the music.

Evocative and insistent. Everything plays together nicely :-) Quality guitar work. Difficult piece to put drums to but they worked a treat. Thanks. Take care.

Cheers, Peter
It would go with a travelogue or a documentary about industry, I think.

I liked
when the flood hit ~0.25, then intensified with that constant splattering of water (the arp synth). Is that Dave causing the hard winds?

I'm sure David has NEVER caused hard wind.
But we had better check with Mrs McNair. It's funny, I have to get someone else's perspective to understand what's going on in my tunes. The drum track is one piece. I often get David to do two sets, one basic and one percussion track, as he's great at that. If only he were an octopus! I seem to have messed up the settings on my arpeggiator. Now I'll have to read the flipping manual. Grrr.

Absorption is the heady Business
Dig this piece. The production is spot on. The keyboard additions were effective and gave the guitars a chance to shine. The rhythm section on this number effectively stayed on course too, interesting time. Lots of great things going on... though I am not certain how the ground sucking up water related to it all, but if you say so...

Bubbles
are the key. I don't mind a tune meandering from its original direction, once the end result sounds okay. Thanks for listening, Daug.

Podolski and Zebralette
are the synths. The rest is David, Mr Ovation and Messrs Yamaha. Thanks for listening, Philip.
