The initial idea was the composition of a song that could celebrate the meeting of many nice people from many places from world.

The first artist invited was the awesome Nigel Hardy, UK, who introduced us to the marvelous voice of Anne Cozean, USA. And one by one, from each part of the planet, wonderful musicians and persons joined us, totalizing 24 names involved in this production.

To deal with a big diversity of artists and styles, mixing and producing them, always with the target of creating a colorful harmony of sounds, something constructive, could not have been the easiest of tasks, but certainly it was one of the most pleasant for us.

We hope you all enjoy it!

Zozimo & Adrianne

I've worked with Nigel Hardy on a couple of pieces, and have come to trust his recommendations regarding "Good Musicians."
So when he sent me a rough idea that he, Zozimo, and Adrianne were developing, I was all ears.

From emails between these two men, I read from Zozimo: "if the singer could use as a theme something about collaboration among several people from different places in world...." Instantly the lyrical picture was set in my mind - thank you, Z! You made it so easy.

He also suggested specific sections in the piece where vocals might go - which was enormously appreciated. Vocalists are often sent music with really no room for singing - such was not the case here; plenty of wide open spaces for developing a strong theme, reinforced by all the various instrumental solos. So, as a singer, this collaboration was a dream! I'm honored to be part of such a truly Universal Song. My sincere thanks to all involved.

Lyrics
Universal Song

You sing your part
and I'll sing mine
We'll weave together
a song so fine

Every one of us
is necessary
Each part we sing
is just what's needed now

You sing the lows so well
and I like the highs
We blend and balance
as earth and sky

Every one of us
is necessary
Each part we sing
is what the song needs now

Every one of us
is necessary
Each part we sing
is what the song needs now

We're necessary
We're what the song needs now
We're necessary
We're just what's needed now

You sing the lows
I'll sing the highs
We'll weave together a song so fine

A universal song
ooo ooo ooo ooo now

Great work all, and many (at least 24) thanks.

I think this is a beautifully written and performed piece of music. The voices took my breath away. Those rising and falling melody lines are nothing short of vocal gymnastics. Loved the tasteful instrumental fills which never intrude and are perfectly fitting.

Download first, ask questions later...
I don't know if I'm more affected by the high quality of your velvet vocals, the musicianship of the soloists and production, or by the straight to the heart meaning of your lyrics. "Every one of us is necessary/Each part we sing is what the song needs now". Amen. This production is chock full of meaning, bar-by-bar.

Tremendous concept, executed with pizzazz and wrapped in emotion. What gets better than that? Oh, other than offering not only THIS download but higher quality ones as well.

Hats off to you all. Brilliant. Thanks Anne (and all you other over-achievers)!

i DID visit Texas in 1988. Remember the Superconducting Super Collider project? That miles-wide hole in the ground in Waxahachie using magnets to accelerator particles so they could recreate the Big Bang? I was in charge of getting rid of the Fire Ants - but failed, and they proceeded to eat the core drilling machinery. NOT a successful project, but I'm hoping you think Universal Song was. 8) Thank ye, Jack.

Inspirational
Beautifully calm introduction. Lovely vocal tone - reminds me of Sue Hart (who I think is great). The bass and synth section is a delight. The guitar parts at various places (e.g. around the 8 min mark are wonderful - sort of David Gilmour, for mine). It's a a wonderful song. The whole exercise reminds me of the the Stand By Me video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Us-TVg40ExM). What you have done is quite extraordinary in its scope, and what you have produced is wonderful piece of music which stands on its own. Magnificent!

Look what I have missed out on! This is a massive tune eh! in all departments and crossing many boundaries, what an excellent concept, and song to carry it. Your Voice Is very suited to the style as the song is worthy of your amazing skills. Love the solo sections, each was different and yet it all works. Looks like you had a few rockers pass you on some of the guitar work. Great idea, you might have to tell me a bit more about the process. Anyway, I am very glad I gave this a spin, so thank you for making it available for us to listen and to keep.
