Ahhh Lyrics. Not something I've had to worry about, seeing as how my first 2 albums have been instrumental - nd the first couple songs ive written for my upcoming album 'Approaching Normal' and the 'These Days EP' have come naturally...
This new song I am working on titled 'Hide Myself" (for now) is a song that I want to be one of the most meaningful and powerful on the album. the rough lyrics I used for the melody lines were OK, but a bit cheesy I suppose. I sent them over to Bernard at Outputnoise and said they needed some work.
The song is about winter. Not one of my favorite things in the world. Winter is a sad, depressing time for me regardless of the good things going on in my life. I just get into this funk, a RUT if you will, and can't seem to get out until spring.
This rut always has a negative impact on how I relate to people and how I treat them... Bad news bears. I think SADS (Season affective disorder, as the doctors like to call it) affects a lot of people. Why not write a song about it? Hah..
Went to the PMA this weekend with @kirakiro for her to check out some pieces for class. While she is more-so a fan of European art from the 17-19 century, I must say I find modern art (especially from late 1800's to 1930's) most interesting. I love the colors and shapes. While some people say that anyone could do this (and maybe anyone can!) these types of images invoke the greatest response in me. These are the things I see in my dreams, these are part of my subconcious.
Well, you might ask, what does this have to do with my music. Not much really, maybe there is some underlying impression that it makes on my music, but I couldn't really tell you! Just thought I'd share.
