My first male pella to ccmixter has been troublesome. I was wrong in the mic gain so it was recorded to digital very low. I had to apply a + 30 dB gain with a lot of noise floor. Then I used too much denoiser and too much expander to remove the hiss and it sounds as if it were made of a lot of small different recordings. I hope music can overwhelm these defects. To sing, I recorded a sample piano, I give it as a harmonic reference, as well as the two together in context. I’d better re-record the vocals to give them a second chance, but time is over for submissions.


I’m pleased you like my body -yet, I’m not my body
I’m pleased you say I’m cunning -yet, I’m not my mind
I am a being, and this knowledge gives me joy.

My boss gives me new jobs to do-yet, I’m not a worker
My wife Waits in the bedroom -yet I’m not a husband
I am a being, and this knowledge gives me joy

Some people believe in their senses
some people believe in their thoughts
some people believe in their feelings
but I am neither of these

My father still gives lectures though I am not a son
My kids want me to play with them though I am not their dad
I am a being, and this knowledge gives me joy
