Another Little Piece

Like a lot of people, I write songs. Well, sometimes. Anyway, I found a couple of recordings I’d made that were experiments.

This is an XX-sounding melody, but keep in mind it was written in 2010.

I really like the climbing, off-center guitar that comes in after a few stanzas. Directly inspired by Brian Eno’s work on the 28 Days Later soundtrack.

Are You Mine?

“Are You Mine” is a soft song. There’s a sweet sadness, a sense of vulnerability and acceptance in the song. It’s made all the more poignant by the liner notes:

“I live with my mother, who has Alzheimer’s.
In the house she’ll stop me, put her hand on my arm, and dearly ask, ”Are you mine?”
I say back to her, ”Yeah momma, i’m yours.”

The collection of salt and pepper shakers in the video, were her mother’s.”
