about

i spent a week alone on gabriola island recording music, going for walks, and cleaning out my emotional closet

when i was recording, i wanted to approach music as a tool for healing as much as possible. i suspended my categorizing and contextualizing relationship to music that i've developed over the years of DJing, touring, and recording, and tried to create recording environments that i could be more immersed in, keeping my analytic brain at bay

with this song in particular i fed a kick drum and an electric guitar into a Yamaha 4 track tape recorder and used my iPhone to record vocals.

after a few times having to start over, i was able to sing and play the song in it's entirety.

then i bounced the iPhone recording, and the tape to my computer and added layers afterwards

lyrics

LYRICS:

alleviate structure
moth in afternoon glow
you wake up new, chasing
all the mice in the crawl space

go to the place of wisdom
and imagination
snack on the pleasures of earth
stare at the dirt

bathe in the stewing of life
saltwater on my skin
here at the place where i died
and gave a great yawn

"i want to love like you" i say
but i'm pacing around a grave
beating my mind into shape
will you move away today?
call me in a week please
speak on a quiet evening
