Description
Sam Hatzaras [Nightshade Syndicate] loaned Patrick [outtaorbit] and I a wonderful sound bed called "We are watching the machines die" for a collab. Sam .. please post the original soundbed as it sucked us in ... I mean it captivated us. The truth is I have been creatively "brain dead" for a bit . Terry, Patrick and I have been focusing on collaborations ... the best fix for creative road blocks. This one just took a fast track. If you listen closely Sam's track plays through out ... a given.

Imagine a dying sun ... last communications into space ... machines winking off. I hope we pulled this off.

Sam ... anytime again my friend.

Tech Stuff : Right then ... we tried to mix between "head phones" vs. "monitors" always a fight. Patrick was a huge help on final mix and added his amazing "Strat". Sam's track was played and utilized in it's entirety. The second part melody was embedded in Sam's track and inspiration for the melody we used. I hope what we did was play along on the bits we heard .... and left the musical question open .... "What Do You Hear ?" .

Lyrics
I listen to God in the wires and glass
He plays me His music
and speaks of His past
He talks and I listen and write it all down

.. and God said

"I have tasted your tears
I have watched your pain
I have created
... and will again
But we can talk
until the end"

God said

How did it feel in the rain and the sun ?
How will it feel with connections undone ?
How will the signal be sanctifed when
The machines have grown silent
And rust settles in ?

... and God said

Attention ....

No ...

New ....

I have been going back over my favs. and listeneing to this one a few times, I have to say I find the last comment I made accurate. The only thing that I was feeling about it, listening to it again, is the voice of God sounds demonic in a way. It reminds me of the the demon who, when asked who he is, makes the claim "we are many". But again a very cool piece. I love doing different voices myself I can appreciate this a lot. Cudo's mate

Spacious
and expansive.The extended ambient intro is fantastic, to say the least and It tricked me a few times when I was expecting it to explode.
Hazy atmosphere through the track and this is indeed a new and vast unexplored territory.
This is like Pink Floyd playing on HATP1.
Kudos to all involved.
Surely downloaded.

What was that someone said about a square peg
This is not what I expected Jack. But that's not important because it is what I needed to hear. A very thought provoking piece my friend with depth and meaning beyond the words. Musically it wanders, but in a good way. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to have this kind of experience.

Fantastic piece Jack

Rebsie said 3236 days ago (February 6th, 2009)
Stark but clever
The super-textured soundscape is beautifully judged, from the trippy wash to that very stark beat that asserts itself towards the two minute mark. And then a pretty snatch of song emerging from the sonic chaos. Very creative work here Jack and Sam.

drakonis said 3236 days ago (February 6th, 2009)
washing away the past
Weirdly fascinating backdrop of music (ending reminded me a bit of the end of Pink Floyd's "Welcome to the Machine")... and very cool psycho-spatial effects there, giving a quadraphonic soundspace in headphones. Lyrics were thought-provoking, but the pitch-shifting did leave minor artifacts that were a little distracting. Overall, a very immersive and wonderful experience, as is much of what you (Jack & Patrick) and Sam do.
ttfn,
Drakonis

have excellent ears. Dead on about the vox Eduard. There are 2-4 layers of "transformed" vocal tracks mixed in places. The only I know who does it acceptably is the great VW. BTW... "a quadraphonic soundspace in headphones" absolutely made my day kind sir ! Very much appreciated the listen Dragon .

Sci-Fi
Sounds like a great track for a Sci-Fi movie. A solitary, lonely astronaut -- his ship is damaged, and there is no hope for repair, and it's just a matter of time before life support runs out and he freezes to death. Until -- something unexpected happens!

Reminds me of "Ground Control to Major Tung." (sp?)

It has echoes of Pink Floyd.

Love the pad. Very atmospheric. Lots of variety and content to the sound. Somebody worked hard to put it together.

Your voice reminds me of Donovan, from the 60s (70s?).

OK, I just heard the projector bit at the end. Funny! Too bad the young folks here won't be able to identify that sound.
