Nice mix the way you made the music and lyric work. The word lilting comes to mind.

This sounds like a fun project. I really like how you worked with Ivan’s samples — you did a great job. The lyrics are smart and provacative, and as always, your voice is compelling. Bravo!

You’re so kind- thank you, SackJo. My uncle’s a super-creative guy (primarily a visual artist), so it’s a pleasure to collaborate with he and his friend. Bringing Ivan along for the ride seemed to make a lot of sense… Thanks again!

“Memory plays such tricks on us
Strange images, strange fruit
Hanging on us like albatross necklaces”

Pure poetry… very, very nice. Thanks for making my music part of this creative project!

When I was looking for a CC-BY rock piece, I immediately thought of you. It was fun listening through your work to find something for this. Thank you for rocking!

Thank you, DICE. The lyrics are by uncle’s friend, Dwight Stevers… I just adapted them for song. The imagery he uses made it so fun to work on. Thanks for remixing it!
