This was really a one take recording that I added a second take over the first. Just a lucky shot moment. First take was me playing Bass and rhythm keyboards, then the second added little embellishments over the first take. Recorded March 2007.

Tech Notes: Kurzweil K2000, Cakewalk Pro-Audio 9, Pentium III, DirectPro LS6. This song is special because the sounds evolve in real time for the bass and rhythm parts. I was playing left hand bass, while tweaking the sounds, and playing rhythm keys. Also if you listen closely you can hear how the rhythm sound split into two parts that covered different sonic ranges, and behaved differently, giving the illusion of two seperately recorded tracks. The Bass sound also had this trait.

The Deeper meaning....

This song tries to imply the simple idea of how we can affect our environment, one kind act at a time, one person at a time. As a playful or innocent melody rides over a dark context, over time the innocent melody overtakes the darker tone and transforms itself taking on the sonic identity of what was chaos but with the innocence became something more powerful, and inspiring, demonstrating the potential for good via the ripple effect of human interaction.
