Dan sent me an mp3 of some vocals and a simple two-chord idea underneath for me to mess around with.
I had an idea of trying something much darker and more aggressive to what I have done before to fit in with the haunting vocals. After i realised I didn't really know what I was doing I just experimented with random ideas until a few of them seem to gel together.
I wanted to pad out the vocals so tried to pitch-shift them to create a harmony part. The plug-in had a 'robotize' button on it so how could I refuse! I think it sounded pretty cool in the end.
Overall I'm pleased with how it came together. I feel it needs more but at the moment I'm not too sure what that would be.
As for the title, we don't really have a decent idea yet. 'Wormhole', 'Einstein-Rosen Bridge', are kicking around. I'm sure it will change. I'd be happy for any good suggestions on this!
Definitely up for another @sailingmagpie collab if we can squeeze one in before the end of the month!
@tomski and I have often discussed the possibility of forming an electronica band but we've never got our act together and actually done it. I basically sent Tom a recording with a simple afrobeat drum loop/bassline combo and some vocals, singing suitably sci-fi lyrics. He returned it to me as the industrial sized behemoth that sits in front of you now. There is a link below to the original file I sent, so you can see just how radically different it is!
We built a box and we built it together
Step back in time in a loop for forever with you
You should know if we're stuck in a timeline
Realise that with me that would be just fine
Create a wormhole just for the two of us
Step right through and embrace what's before us anew
Try our best to avoid paradoxes
All of spacetime is there to unlock if we choose
We're bound together in quantum entanglement
Linked as one for all time
