Album Notes
I like Frank Zappa and was also somewhat inspired by Leonard Cohen, although I could never put myself in the same class as these giants. Zappa's spoken word (ala Cosmic Debris) and Cohen's use of repeating a phrase (ala 1000 kisses deep). The background is a combination of a heavily processed beat, some background ambience I recorded at a bar I was playing and some sound effects. The sax comes over more traditional musical bed. The sections contrast between pretty much atonal and a basic iim7 to a IM7. It's a tension and release format with the sound effect section replacing a minor or harmonically dissonant section. In some modern music, this is represented by a rap section (tension) followed by a melodic section (release) usually in the form of the chorus or hook.
The words come from the thought that this world is nuts. Why am I here? No matter what I do it ends up crazy. Some of this is relationship oriented where I seem to be doing OK, life is going on, I meet a girl and things get crazy in a short amount of time. ALways building, tearing down, then building again.
The song was produced in Logic Pro, using a Mackie U420d Mixer, Neumann Mic, Selmer tenor sax with some of the sounds coming from a Korg Triton Rack, processed in Logic. I use tRacks plug ins.
