The title of colab’s track, “Dark Corners in Small Houses” was the inspiration of the way the song went and how I wanted to take things.

According to Wikipedia,

Mushishi (Japanese: 蟲師?) is a manga series written and illustrated by Yuki Urushibara. … The story features ubiquitous creatures called Mushi (蟲?) that often display what appear as supernatural powers. It is implied that there are many more lifeforms more primitive than “normal” living things such as animals, plants, fungi and bacteria, and Mushi is the most primitive of all. Due to their ethereal nature most humans are incapable of perceiving Mushi and are oblivious to their existence, but there are a few who possess the ability to see and interact with Mushi. …

So like a supernatural chant taking hold, the mushishi build up in rooms and houses that are completely closed — like this dark corner in the small house.

Originally, I had planned to write lyrics and do some vocals, but the first session of work I did on this piece caused a severe case of musical ear syndrome and I was brought down pretty hard by it. Trying to work on it a second time has produced nearly the same problem — so I had to stop.

I really need to find an exit strategy from the loop.

But it was grand to be paired with colab, whom was one of the first mixters I had worked with when I started at ccmixter in 2006.

Can’t wait to celebrate the next ten years.
