Revolution's Son (v2, w/ dchapman, twon, Alimar, Audiocracy)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Amazing how electric guitar has added dimensions to this track. This is the second version of Revolution's Son; here are the changes: Darren Chapman's guitars, featuring very cool hits throughout and a solo during the ending vamp fade (huge thanks to him on tackling this complicated tune); remixing (and boosting) Anton's bass, bringing out some cool transitions; a new backwards organ/Moog synth layered solo and a newly mix bass part that creates a childhood duet in the "Freedom" section; an overall slight compression and reverb to the mix. Alimar's re-engineering of Anton's vocals remained unchanged from last version, since they were already perfect.

It was wonderful working with Darren. His guitar tracks are the first collaboration I've done with anyone in which I ended up keeping all of his performance without editing out, tweaking timing, cutting or pasting a single note. He inspired me to rework several sections in the mix to equal the energy his playing provided.

It is a continued joy to work on songs with my son and we hope to have a few more finished before the end of the year. We both think this tune and its lyrics have special meaning due to our father-son collaboration. In honor of this, I have used a photo I took of him recently performing at the Knitting Factory in Manhattan. (Happy Birthday!)

Lyrics
REVOLUTION'S SON:

Did you miss it?
Did it pass you by?
Raise me up. Raise me up, Revolution.

I dreamed it
in childhood
a simple thing
inside me
like fathers
with eyes that sting:
a child, a cradle, a mother sings,
a hero, a story, an opening...

Raise me, raise me, raise me.
Raise me, raise me, raise me up.

Lullabies and bullets.
Pens and shiny swords.
Can you ever not feel it?
Blood and the umbilical cord,
to be the one, the true son,
with eyes like knives and a Mother's song,
a better man, a Son of Revolution?

All the hopes,
can I let them down?
All the stars I have counted,
what is their sum?
All the lives,
accumulation
within me. What am I waiting for?
Within in me. What am I waiting for?
What am I waiting for?
What are we waiting for?

Pull it down from the mountain.
Read it off of parchment clean.
Reflected there, from the blood in the streets.
How many times must it repeat, repeat, repeat?
Repeat?

All the changing,
did it pass you by?
Raise me up! Raise me up!

Freedom, freedom come alive.

Freedom is a dream.
Freedom is a dance.
Freedom is a song.
Freedom is a chance.

In the outlaw love of a Mother,
beyond every law is the cradle.
Rebellion is a lullaby
to the boy inside, the boy inside.
Beyond every law of the father
is the tearing off of the labels
for the boy inside to realize
the boy inside, the boy inside.

Raise me up! Raise me up!

Don't miss the changes...
Don't miss the changes... the change is you, the change is me.
Don't miss the changes...

Who?
These great harmonies and arrangements with the energic drums, a wall of sound together with the almost musical genre melody lines reminds me of the Who. Expecting the guitarist to do that armrolling trick Pete Townshend use to do.

Great performances on every part.

Hope you don't smash your equipment after the show though;)

Version 2
The addition of Darren's guitar, and new synth and organ
embellishmnents truly "round" out this compostion to
express the artform of "Prog" rock. The bass is a little
more evident, and the the additional production has a
brought a completeness to Rev's Son.

Bravo to you Darren on wearing your "prog" hat on this
one. Not too flashy, but the solo at the end is, as we call it
here in WNY, is "tastey".

Great follow up, Tobin. Excellent work Twon, Tobin, and
DC!

Version 2
Al, thanks again for your interest, ears, time and talents on this one. I know the
vocals are hotter in version one and I encourage anyone to listen to it to get the
full experience of your exquisite re-engineering of the voices. I am glad you
like the newer version, with the boosted bass and tasty guitar hits, it is more of
a prog rock expression. Mainly, Al, thanks for caring about the music so much,
your sort of connection is what makes doing this so much fun.

dchapman said 4482 days ago (August 14th, 2005)
This was indeed fun.
This was a challenging song with the different instruments
moving in different ways. Keeping out of the way of the
other instruments while adding something new was the
challenge. KISS (Keep it Simple, Stupid!) prevailed.

The final product is now showing the potential that I
envisioned when I heard the song for the first time and
Tobin and I agreed there should be guitar.

I hope everyone enjoys this piece as much as I enjoyed the
collaboration.

This was indeed fun.
I can't thank you enough. It was a thrill to hear that opening section with guitar.
I completely agree about the guitar bringing out the potential of the piece. I, in
turn, had a great time adding organ and electric piano to your forthcoming tune,
How Many Times. I hope we can do many more tunes together. I know sections
of this weren't easy to play along to, but you integrated your work perfectly.
Thanks again!

Magic fingers - real and virtual
Many very subtle and yet very effective alterations in this
version. The style and tone of the guitar slips right in like
magic. One note I failed to make in my comments for the
previous version is a compliment for the drum
programming. The drum kit is worked all around in this
song and is filled with lots of terrific flourishes. Good
drum programming takes a lot of attention to detail,
moreso than any other instrument I think, and when the
details are off it usually sticks out like a sore thumb. The
drums here really rise to meet the high standards called
for by the overall excellence of this piece.

Magic fingers - real and virtual
Thanks for the comments about the drumming. I spent a ton of time finding,
cutting and pasting, splicing, EQing, and lining up hits in Live to fit just the right
way. I wanted a real drummer feel, something virtuoso, like you hear in the best
prog rock tracks, so that the drums would become an instrument as important
as any of the others, not just a groove keeper. Thanks for your careful listening
and encouraging comments.

Lyrics of a masterpiece
For all the great things people can say about the music and
performances on this masterpiece, I still think the lyrics need
special mention for their beauty and power. That they are
song by a father and son team, the son singing the father's
words, makes for a moving experience. Thank you for
continuing to perfect this rather amazing piece of music and
poetry.

Lyrics of a masterpiece
The lyrics to this song came out of a conversation I had with Troy about the
nature of revolution. There is more conversation about this in the Version One
comment thread. I have always believed that along with the right social-
polticial-economic checks and freedoms, new parenting is the only true way to
effect continuing revolution. It is a thirst, and a belief, that we can pass on to
our sons and daughters. Thanks for taking the time to mine the lyrics. I really
appreciate your focus on lyrics, Del. You keep me in my toes.

Sounds like the 70`s
Reminds me a little bit of the early Genesis or something like that. But, I`m sorry, it`s not nearly as good as stuff like that. It`s a good song, good playing, nice production, pretty good singing but, in my opinion, a little too much constructed.

Revolutions
Dang, since my wife and I forgot to have kids, I guess the
new true revolution has started without me. Maybe I can still
find involvement as an uncle? It's amazing how complex this
piece is, both in its components and its variety of performers
and producers. Kudos to every one involved, bringing so
much talent and passion to one piece of music. It is
progessive both in its structure and in its development.
Could've this been done outside of macjams? Maybe - but it
might also represent another revolution that's underway.

Revolutions
Thanks for the wry eye and friendly ear. I consider "parenting" to be a metaphor
to evolving culture thru nurturing and example; I didn't mean to exclude you,
just meant to highlight a missing element from most discussions. I think true
revolution is inside, not merely structural (altho I am a huge fan of Franklin, Sam
Adams, Jefferson, Tom Paine, Madison, Washington and the boys). Thanks for
your patience and attentiveness and nice comments.

Macjammer Renaissance Man
Revolution: second nature to teens, but they need the right
mix of arrogance and innocence. Revolution: what this
country is founded on (the original conservatism: conserve
individual dignity at all costs!) Revolution: Macjammers in
action! I loved the first version, this is better. So great to
hear someone that can rock, that can blues, that can jazz,
that can mellow out, that can showtune, that can twist heads
with abstract complexity, man you do it all. Macjammer
Renaissance Man. Keep 'em comin'!

TobinMueller said 4473 days ago (August 24th, 2005)
Macjammer Renaissance Man
Thanks, Spaz. What I really like to do as squish all those styles into a single
song (e.g., Icarus), but doing that is very uncommercial. Maybe part of the
revolution is breaking out of the boxes of prepackaging. I just like pulling from
different places, synthesizing in the structural sense, and pretending the result
is a unique sound. My freshman composition prof pounded the concept of
uniqueness into all of us, which I actually rebelled against (since in 1977 that
meant John Cage type anti-music noise, which was just another way to follow
the crowd, if you ask me), advocating instead a kind of honesty in sound. I just
try and write/play what I hear and feel good afterward. Pretty simple, really.
Thanks again.

This is tight!
And VERY Prog!

I hear a lot of ELP...Greg Lake sort of influence...Bill
Brufordish drums...some bits of Yes...even Kansas, a bit...

The drums in particular seem live and non-
mechanical...even have a bit of Neil Peart to 'em...Mr.
"How-I-relate-to-drums-is-I-hit-them"...(actual quote or
at least paraphrase...)

Having the sense that the track was "built", I'm stunned by
how tightly meshed it is...it ends up sounding like
something someone--not me or anyone I know
personally--but someone could play onstage....

I'm not a big prog listener, and this probably isn't what I'd
normally listen to for pleasure, but I can relate to it being
good in its genre and I can stand back in amazement at
the skills it took to bring it into being...

Very cool that you thought the whole thing sounded like something 5 guys could
perform on stage, this is exactly the end result I was try for. I had other ideas I
didn't add in just so this could remain a possibly-performed-by-a-group piece,
as is. Thanks for all your other comments too, and thanks for listening to
something outside your normal realm, giving it a chance and listen. Isn't MJ

Liked the original version…
… but this is better. Nuff said. I'm about to send it off
to my radio DJ friend who I hope will like it too.
Power to all you young dudes, and keep proggin'! But
I still don't think it sounds like Genesis, ELP (well,
maybe some of the keyboard sounds are a little
Emerson-like) or even Yes (though more them than
the other two) … it's closest to a Starcastle track for
sure.

EG, thanks a ton. Very exciting. I've email Ian and had some nice exchanges. I
hope it can get some play, would be great. I agree with you, the song doesn't
sound Genesis at all. More Kansas than Yes, this new version. Starcastle, I will
have to search out their stuff. Personally, I like that it sounds like my son and I
jamming, with friends joining in to complete the vision. Don't need any more
name dropping than fellow MJers nowadays!

Cameron said 4477 days ago (August 20th, 2005)
Amazing Production!!
This version is an improvement over an already excellent
previous one. The addition of dchapman's guitar, along
with the additional bass and synth and adjusted mix,
makes this piece shine even more brightly.

The tempo shifts after the beginning section is always a
wonderful surprise to hear -- I really like that transition!
The subsequent transitions offer a great deal of interest,
as well.

The percussion is indeed amazing; very realistic. It must
have taken an incredible amount of work and care to
produce this kind of authenticity. The drums sound very
"warm" and natural.

Very excellent production and performance on ALL fronts.
BRAVO, tutti!

Great picture, too.

Amazing Production!!
Thank you, Mr. C. A major subsection of prog rock is all about the transitions.
My favorite is going into "All the hopes, can I let them down?" In fact, the
transitions of early prog rock informed my own classical pieces I wrote in the
80s, as I searched for ways to create the energy I absorbed listening to Yes, King
Crimson, ELP and others. This track took a ton of time, but when I hear
something it is hard to stop until it sounds kind of like what is in my head. I just
wish it sounded exactly like what i am hearing! Thanks for all of your kind
comments and careful listening.

A complex work
This track has so many aspects to it, it's hard to know what to respond to first. The prog rock influences are certainly upfront, and unapologetically so, which is refreshing. I can easily picture Rick Wakeman playing all of your B3 licks, which are so enjoyable. The addition of the guitar work is an excellent choice as well.

This must have taken forever and a day to go from the idea stage to final completion. And you're letting us download it for free! Thank you, Tobin and Anton, and crew, for an excellent track, and a MJ standout.

The guitar certainly adds an extra element of depth, as does the keyboards.
I found the introduction has a contemporary structure (insofar as the initial drum pattern is concerned), whereas the harmonic structure is unapologetically 'Prog' :-) Very 'Keith Emerson harmony meets a Yes Structure in the 21st Century, which is why I enjoyed listening to this rendition.

Many Thanks for bringing this piece to my attention Tobin!

Thanks. The track started with me playing 2 organ layers and everything grew from there. So many organ details lost in the building, mixing process, I always feel a sense of loss when I relisten, but the addition of everything else is exciting and more than necessary. When we come out with the Box Set, I'll have to include the original organ tracks just for people who like that sort of thing...

Beautiful song
"Beautiful song" In the words of my housemate who has a lot of Genesis CD's.I have to agree with him on this one. I can hear the Genesis, Kansas, and Yes styled 90125 vocals. I like the high harmonies in there. I haven't listened to the previous mixes. This one is quite good. Not sure how to do it but I'd like to hear a little more variation in the texture of the song. Perhaps replace prominent keyboard part with guitar. The drums are brilliant. though I'd like to hear real drums on a piece this rich and complex. Perhaps we'll get a live recording uploaded sometime in the future? The first thing I noticed was the cool picture of your son. Great work!
