I am excited to announce I have just completed a second completely original new song in 2016. This New Single is titled "Spin Zone". Just click the song title and it should take you to a link that plays the song. If it doesn't let me know. I'll fix it or find a way to get the song to you.
Lyrics and chord structure ebbed and flowed and then came into full bloom slowly. Too slowly. I was close to throwing this one out a bunch of times. I almost went Psychoacoustic on it. Actually, I did. I use what are called psychoacoustic sounds in the song. They are what kept the song from dying a slow death because certain sounds sort of stuck with me and would not let go.
Although from outside "listening" in you may not be able to hear these sounds clearly, trust me, they are present in the mix. The sounds included a plucked stapler spring (Yes ...you heard that right) combined with sounds formed by tapping light bulbs of different sizes and intensities. The other unique feature is the staccato soprano entering the scene towards the end of the song. She is worth waiting for.
The process of lyric making is a very organic and often a very daunting process for me. My words are wrapped in the flavors of the current world around me and my emotional state(s) at the moment I am writing. My intent when starting this was not to take on anything too serious. That is not exactly what I ended up with. I try to hold it all lightly, and hope you do too.
Thanks again for listening to my very eclectic music tastes. I never know what is going to form and I am always a bit surprised at the end result. The whole music creation process has been a blast and I will try to keep in touch with you more during the development process of my next song. Thank You for allowing me to share my experience with you.
Hope to see you around town and I'll talk to you again soon. I'd love to hear from you. Take Care
