I find myself ripped into two by this as it is simply happy and delightful (an island splendid) and at the same time it is incredibly tragic because of Kara’s amazing words…so I feel like dancing but it then feels like I’m dancing on someone’s grave…lol…screw it I’m dancing

Thanks. I guess I took the glass half full perspective. I found it very romantic and positive. I think what Kara managed to do was put into simple words something we’ve all thought about…the hallmarks of a truly great songwriter. And we all know of the elderly man or woman who dies shortly after their partner. Her message about stardust combining, I’ve always found that thought very comforting when dealing with mortality, like water drops returning to the ocean. One could say the ocean remembers the water drop forever. Just as a butterfly flapping it’s wings is felt on the other side of the cosmos. It’s not just molecules and atoms, it’s information…complexity. “The universe is made of stories, not atoms”…love stories :)

How synchronistic, your comment reminded me of another song where this exact same thing happened before…and it’s all about dancing on the grave…kind of. And it’s another reggae tune too…kind of ska/reggae.

Beautiful, joyful rendition… a true celebration! And your thoughts on mortality are as comforting as the stars. Beautiful. I look forward to reading the book you mentioned… Thank you for sharing your talents and thoughts.

Thank you!! I think what I find comforting about a universe made of love stories is that stories are interdependent and interconnected. There’s my story, your story, their story…and THE story. Greater story, greater greater story…story of the story…of the story…

Beautiful. Perhaps interestingly, I wasn’t confident about this song… made me feel vulnerable. I felt like it might be too raw. And here it seems these thoughts that I found hard to share are connecting with folks… “stories are interdependent and interconnected.” It’s a good thing to remember. I used to think that writing a universal lyric automatically made it boring. I was wrong. Perhaps, done correctly, it’s really just tapping into the “greater story.”

One more thought on the subject, I don’t think of this as a metaphor. I think the quantum paradox, all the great minds in physics, quantum physics, string theory, the Buddhists…they all come to the same conclusion ultimately. And that is that you can’t have things spring into existence from nowhere. Quantum particles can’t come from a void. Something must cause strings to vibrate in the first place, etc. the Buddhists get around this by saying there is no beginning and end only mutual causation. The western minds aren’t ok with this. There must be a Big Bang, Big Crunch…beginning, end.

Dr. Amit Goswami solves the quantum paradox by saying consciousness is the ground of all being. Objects can materialize into physical reality if all reality is ultimately consciousness.

Beautiful mix, Jeris! In between many splendid things, the clavinet is my favorite! Sounds like it was played by Stevie Wonder himself!

Haha awesome…love Stevie Wonder :)

great job Jeris !

Did you used one of your beat from any Eigenharp library ?
sounds friendly to my hears
permalink   Jeris Tue, May 20, 2014 @ 11:08 AM
Thanks! No, that’s weird though that you just brought that up. Eigenharp came up in a YouTube search for me just yesterday! I was looking at Harpejji videos. Thinking about ordering one…soooo expensive though!

ordering an harpejji ?
that’s really expensive, more than 5000$
i guess it’s the same price than the eigenharp alpha.

Yeah…I don’t know. You can pay half and it takes 3 months to build. The smaller one is a lot less but I would want the bass notes. I still can’t figure out if it’s the coolest instrument ever and I was born to play it or if it’s just a cheesy guitar/chapman stick wannabe!

I was searching for some reggae stems and I knew just where to look :) Awesome stuff!
