Lyrics
Brendajean: Intimate Storm
Clasped within the light, loose hand of uncertainty
I am scattered to aimlessly slip through these fingers,
like cremated ashes being left to disintegration

I am strewn and drifting above your body's ridges,
canyons carved by tributaries of your elusive pristine
water pools, where your storms of the past collect

and create the veil of condensation that turns my breath
into raindrops falling, forming streams to try and reach you,
still they bend and fall away from your water's depth

that would provide the well where confusion cleanses clear,
my wind and snow and rain and snow and wind and rain
would fall each season's cycle, against your aging face of fear.

Michael East (1580-1648): Poor is the Life
Poor is the life that misses
The lover's greatest treasure,
Innumerable kisses,
Which end in endless pleasure.
O, then, if this be so,
Shall I a virgin die?
Fie no, no, no!

Intimate Storm
Spoken word works well, but I like the chords and background quite a lot. I like this breezy music with dark lyrics!

This is great
I too would like to hear a no vocal version. Would you consider posting the instrumental alone?
dirigent said 3498 days ago (February 27th, 2008)
no vocals
never had thought abot leaving the vocals away :-) I guess I never listened to the instruments alone ...
The way of composing this was: I sent Rinca the text, then she invented a melody and I added the instruments in the main part, in the ballad. Then I took motives of this ballad and made the accompaniment for the Spoken Word. So everything always has been very much interwoven with the text ...
But this idea is amazing - I'll listen to the instruments alone and think about whether it is possible to publish the instrumental part as it is or maybe to develop an instrumental piece of this material. I'm not sure yet, but it really might be of interest ... Thanks bibanova!

Two Piece Interlock...
...brilliantly pieced together. In all reality, the spoken words/instruments/ piece is dissimilar to the jazzy Vocal (singing)/Instruments piece.

Pros: Well arranged, Rinca vocals, the dark progression chords, interesting percussion and many surprises (sfx) that peak in the background.

Con: Spoken Words track is too wet (too much reverb)and there are some very high hissing happening here (maybe the quality of the mic).

Suggestions: This is such a unique piece it deserves a remix. I kind of like to hear the spoken-words part to be more upfront/softer/dryer tone. The vocals delivery (Rinca) is fine (although a tad less on the reverb if you decide to remix), the reverberation gives the piece that two-dimensional feel (nice touch!).

Nice Job All!

Interesting and entertaining song. Love the part when the bongos cut in, Rinca's voice is A1 tops. Like the production too, well done indeed.

Combination
Beautiful combination of international talent. Mixed as though everyone was together in the studio. Spoken and song parts for an excellent counter point.

Thanks
