Experiments with Tape Speed
Here are three different versions of the song ‘Nico’.. the song began as a simple lullaby to my nephew, but morphed into something more complex. I suppose it’s appropriate because babies can go from joy to fear to confusion to joy again so quickly, and this song does that as well. Virtually all of the vocals on this song were done at different speeds, and in the pre-chorus I actually just sang one note and warped the tape speed downwards to create the effect of the vocal raising in pitch. Took lots and lots of trial and error how to figure out how to do that, but I think it creates a really unique sound. Can’t wait until little Nico is old enough for me to explain all of this to him.

I Fell in Love, With a Feeling
I am back from Asia–it was wonderful and alien and surreal. Many things are cooking, tour plans, visuals, words, side chains and fruitful distractions. Excited.
To answer the question: Yes, Jeff Zeigler and I will be doing an encore performance (performances?) of our ’2001: A Space Odyssey’ homage. Stay tuned for details.
Oak Island — January 22nd, 2013
The new album–which I spent the last two and a half years working on (between tWoD tours)–will be released 1/22/13 on Secretly Canadian. You can hear a new track here:
Tracklist, Art, Release Date, Shows, Tours all forthcoming…
Thank you I love you.
Album = Done = THICK
Thicker than the earth’s crust.
Going to many countries between now and the time it will be released, but it will spin through the airwaves to the ear canals like a choral reef soon enough… can’t wait.
