This is a tough one to describe. I knew I couldn’t do time travel with just an instrumental. There had to be a voice involved. Some kind of narrative.
The voice sample (not me) is altered. Pitch-shifted up on the left and lowered on the right, but the duration was preserved on both to avoid phasing. A bit of reverb. The two samples were panned. You should really listen to this piece with headphones.
Was the voice recording cut up and re-ordered or is it a continuous rant?
The subject matter does the time traveling in my mind: Beach Boys, David Lynch movie, minute steaks with sunnyside up eggs, Edgar Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Vyvanse, swinging bachelor pad, dress pants and dress shoes, shaved head, Mannix, Ironside, The White Album, Revolution #9, Long Long Long, Revolution #1, sleep, swagger, “the same feeling that night I drank”, “the shield of armor” (which is Ephesians 6:10-18), AA talk, “and then Laura told me to Sit In That Feeling.”
Book-ending it with talk about “a David Lynch movie” and “Laura told me to sit in that feeling” was intentional. Or was it?
Was I trying to make the voice sound like a cheap version of The Man From Another Place, or did it just turn out that way?
Now you’re thinking about the Twin Peaks reboot. This isn’t about the Twin Peaks reboot. Or is it?
Music added includes bits of “We Meet Again” by Ambient Matyk (to be released soon), “Feather Ridge”, “Kad”, and “Shunting” by me, and some extra sounds.
