Loogaroo (w/ theDanseLeviathan, Scofugate)

[Explicit]

Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I chanced upon a track by the Danseleviathan a while back and asked if I could have a little tinker on it as I wanted to expand on it .... so then I had a little tinker and sent it to Scott (Scofugate) ... and well we all KNOW what happens when WE TINKER TOGETHER ...... special thanks to MR for giving me the "line" and allowing me to bite him ......

According to the myth, the Loogaroo is an woman who is in league with the Devil. She will have magical abilities only if she gives the Devil blood every night. She tries to give him blood of other creatures, or else he will take her own blood, causing her to die.[2]

The Loogaroo can leave its own skin (usually under a "Devil Tree," a silk cotton tree) and turn into a flame or blue ball of bright light that haunts the night searching for blood to meet the terms of her deal. After she has collected enough blood she can return to her skin and retake human form.[3]

This creature is apparently compulsive and must stop to count grains of sand spread upon the ground. So, a defence against her was to leave a pile of rice or sand near your front door. Hopefully, the creature would take so long to count it all that the sun would eventually return with the coming of morning. By that time the Loogaroo would have to return to her skin without making an attack. In some tales of the Loogaroo, her skin can be taken away from the Devil Tree so that she cannot find it when she returns.

Haunting
Great work all ! Very interesting story. Loogaroo makes me think of "Loup Garou", which I think translates like werewolf.

yes ...
The term Loogaroo possibly comes from the French mythological creature called the Loup-garou, a type of werewolf and is common in the Culture of Mauritius.

Atmosphere
So cool. This is a dense mix with lots of details haunting the shadows. Great vocal performance that captures the essence of the song. Big production value on all the sounds swirly around like dark mist.

thanks Kicbal ......
... most here know of my affinity for reverb ... echo ... and all things swirly !!!! One of these days I am gonna need to branch out to the next level and start playing out of my comfort zone with some of the FX and mixing tools available to me .... Scott does most of the work here tho ! I just tinker all over the top of it when the magic has occurred !
