once upon a time…

in Venice, Italy, a couple of guys were toying around with the MPC3000.

they were part of a live band, and decided to fuse electronic methods with analog instrumentation.

the method was by no means original or groundbreaking. but the mode of expression was arguably so.

the guys incorporated Ableton Live, learned it on the fly. programmed some drums, constructed a synth bass line on top. threw in some MIDI keyboard sounds, and hooked up an electric guitar to layer in some effected licks.

the vocalist jumped in the shower, and as the water flowed off the top of his dome so did the concept and lyric.

the moon began to set, and he immediately laid down the reference vocals. the melody, verses and raps in this rough mix were exactly what made the final release intact. the guys threw some veggies and fruit in the juicer, swigged the serum and called it a day.

musicians are often thought of as having the “pick of the litter,” access to sensual encounters by virtue of being on stage and in the public eye. but more often than not, love goes unrequited. and a poet can often feel like petals–plucked from the stem and left to drift to the ground.

you can have the sonic synopsis of this plight for free, if you like. download, and name your price as $0.00:

but they don’t mind if you choose to make a small contribution…
