I had these French Horn loops (the tune is St James Infirmary) on Loopy. This morning I started listening back.. My mission is to be able to create cool sounds in real times, so I could perform. I put down some suitably miserable lyrics, and recorded using loopy, but adding loops as I went.
I imported into Logic - and just added a bit more vocal (yes I realise the original is a bit low) the organ sound and bass. I tried using the drummer function (to get a few fills primarily) but it seemed to be convinced that I wanted a swing beat. And I don't have a great deal of patience when I'm on a roll.
It has its flaws.. but I'm quite pleased with it.
As I descend (in to the abyss)
I make amends acknowlege this.
I slide into stupor like nothing known before
A final slip of consciousness, a ride up to the door.
An observation on my life
It was all too brief a time.
A plain admission that I syphoned
Off what wasn’t mine.
You looked out for my interests
and I payed you back in thanks.
Open handed gestures
and steamy slimy wanks..
And all the time you offered
Hope to cure my ills.
I rifled thro' my cupboard..
I want more bloody pills..
You took my love made me bend
I nearly lost my mind
Now you’re struggling you’re near the end
Lost your vital signs.
I’m leaning to tell you, that I’m not well I
Can’t seem to keep myself up just to say.
All that I did I regret it and hell I
Find myself slipping away.
