a multi-disciplinary dialog

Is that waltz time? There’s a special art to merging lyrics to the melody and the meter which I think you do well. At times your delivery makes me think of Mark Knopfler. Listening to it a second time I was led to wonder what the song would be like if the whistling, heard at one point, was interwoven throughout.
I love this stuff – had to get my fix of Channel Surfer Girl.,
Hi Jay, thanks for listening! Not a waltz, it’s in 4/4, but it does have kind of a swing to the rhythm. Interesting suggestion about the whistling. The song’s basically done (for now), but if we remix we’ll try that out. We are actually working on a remix of Channel Surfer Girl right now, which we hope to have up on the site in the next few weeks. Thanks again!
My pleasure as always.
This was great listening, but I’m a little bothered by an apparent disconnect between lyrics and delivery. Every time we hear “I’m on fire”, the music gets slower, quieter, more controlled. Especially true for the triple repetition in the final verse. Am I missing something, is this contradiction deliberate, perhaps a statement about disconnection from one’s feelings?
Steve, yes I think. I’m tongue-tied. A genius inside. I’m an idiot savant.
I just saw the flick “Greenberg.” This is the musical equivalent.
I liked it very much, very much indeed. I’m going to have to go back and explore some more tomorrow.
Thanks June. Haven’t seen the film yet, but the trailer looked really interesting. It’s on our list (probably catch it on Netflix).
