Lyrics
icy breath, pillows of frost
turning emerald green in the Northern lights

forget the field of sleep and flowers
now is the time for eyes wide open
the whistle of the polar wind
in a binding white world
I hear a voice
calling me

I hear voices
I hear voices

whispering tales of snow and ice
they ask me to follow them
dragging me down through icy water
a long, deep, frozen sleep
a long, deep, frozen sleep

I hear voices
calling me

now I can lay my head
on snowflakes as soft as down
and when I look above
the stars are falling down

I hear voices
I hear voices
calling me

this is great
I Spike has a beautiful voice.

I really love the way your vocals, Miss Chaos, float through the electrobeats - reminds me of my favorite Radiohead songs.

With that said, I think this song is best when there is tension, vocals and instruments at odds with each other.

Happy New Year, by the way!

thank you, estillie!
I'm glad you picked up on the tension. It's something I. Spike succeeded with when creating the vocal melody; he took these short passages and made them gorgeous, long, and flowing strands of 'song'. I'm so happy you liked this enough to fave it! Happy New Year to you as well!

Pure excellence
Perfect marriage of vocals to your wonderful, creative, evocative track. You continue to build gorgeous arrangements - you certainly have a gift.

And Mr. Spike is one amazing musician. What a voice - what a vocal part.

This is a beautiful collaboration. Thank you for allowing me to put it on my iPod.

dangerous combo
You two... very chilling music. It has that frosty ethereal MissChaos sweeping quality, and the edgy i.Spike lyric with his great voice (and hints of MissChaos too.) Other than the occasional sudden/unusual chord changes which were odd in my ears (that's MY problem), this was quite beautiful. I like the mix of muffled chorus, crisp singing, sweeping synths, and the characteristic MissChaos arpeggios.
ttfn,
Drakonis

thanks, Drak
I'm really glad you liked this one, strange twists 'n turns and all! What's cool about this song, for me, is that it started out as a means to train my ear to play something other than the next predictable note in a pattern. And the reason for that is because I really want to make music that's unlike anything I've heard before. I've been listening to a lot of William Orbit and it's becoming more and more of an influence -- the way he uses unpredictable chords and the experimental and textural nature of some of his more recent music. But as I said above, it's become a real song now, thanks to I. Spike, and I couldn't be happier with his vision of it. Thank you so much, Drak -- always such a pleasure to read your thoughts. :-)

Thanks so much! Y'know, I've always been very fond of your vocal bravery and skill. I guess I'm too shy to actually sing anything worth while. I've always preferred to be in the background anyhow. :-) Take care!

Ed Hannifin said 3872 days ago (January 11th, 2007)
No. I hear voices.
The voice here is a perfect cap to the sonic bed that Miss C. has put together... The lead singing is stunning... The background voices are beautiful...

The basic track is so full, and yet so subtle, in its sounds, in its motion, in the changing textures... The other word that applies is sophisticated...

I would love to see the lyrics....

I love what I think I caught as changing vocal effects on the lead vocal... I wouldn't have thought of doing that, and it sounds great...

The funny thing is, I came to this tune having just listened to a couple old Genesis tracks, and, really, it could not help but strike my ears that THIS actually sounds better...

Quite the collab.

Ed


MissChaos said 3872 days ago (January 12th, 2007)
wow, thanks, Ed
I get such gratification hearing your thoughts on songs -- even reading your thoughts on others' songs. Your "sophistication" remark is truly a compliment. I've been struggling and experimenting with my music lately and I think you've nailed something that I always try to acheive with each song. Thank you for that. But I think most of the compliments should be directed to I. Spike, for he really made this what it is.

Glad you were able to step out a bit and hear this little tune. I wasn't sure HOW to categorize this one. Actually, there are 4 different strings tracks in here... I wonder if perhaps they were too buried in the mix for you to hear?

Ditto - All above.....
No really this piece is now complete, but as a song.

It was complete, in its own way, with the earlier released soundscape. (I never expected this version and because of my surprise and the pieces' enchanting quality, both in music and singing, it makes me smile).

The collaboration and production work is excellent.

What more will 2007 bring?? My mind is 'boggling' already.

Falling thru a museful dream
IS's vocals move thru the crystalline music like a thawing, heated arrow moving in slow motion. The smoothness of your vocals were so smooth I thought it was Leon at first. There is a storytelling, theatrical sense that the clear production expertly accentuates. The female siren syllables work well with the entire interfolded music bed, as if the singer is falling thru dreams, wanting only to let go to either muse, love, sleep or afterlife, or each and all at once. Haunting, compelling, artistic.

Loved this
Great prodction, arrangement and vocals. Lyrics are cool too!

The only thing I have a problems is the voice on 'I hear voices' bit. I think the voice could be doubled up to give it a bit more substance. As its the chorus I think it needs just a little more impact -not much though as I like the reverb on it and know what you are getting at. Otherwise - very very good!

MissChaos said 3871 days ago (January 12th, 2007)
thank you Gav
Really appreciate your thoughts and suggestion. I actually have the chorus vox doubled: one with no effects and one using the Ambience Reverb AU (I forget which setting though...) and tweaked both around a bit. I can hear what you mean about giving the chorus vox a bit more punch. That's something I'll think about if I re-work the mix on this one. Thank you SO much!

Okay, back off the cloud now. :-) somehow, though, I don't doubt I Spike could do it, and do it with the utmost in brilliance.

Alannah said 3872 days ago (January 12th, 2007)
Interesting ....
.... that Tobin should mention "Leon" because that was my first impression too when listening to this ... it sounded like Leon singing in a more subdued fashion than I am used to hearing (his usual belting tones) ... I was totally amazed by the fact that ISpike was able to add vocals to this piece ... I would NEVER have been able to do that ... I think my brain has shrunk somewhat of late and I keep hearing things from MJ's that I never would have dreamed of doing .... and it sounds FANTASTIC! The music behind the vocal is beautiful and certainly is so full now with the addition of vocals .... I've listened to a few ISpike collabs of late (oooops might have been too dozy to comment lazy lazy me) and am impressed by what I am hearing. Great collab you two ...

thanks, alannah!
I hadn't thought of the Leon similarity until you said it. But you're right! There's that same "singing from the gut" ability. Takes quite the talented vocalist to pull off the emotions I Spike can. Thank so much for your thoughts!

I must comment again
Now that I can read along with the song, I have to say it has such a deeper impact... I'm struck with a sense of longing or unfulfillable expactation... such a great contrast between warmth and desolate cold...

an incredible marrage of the warmth of your trax, with the artisry of the poet I Spike... and for the first time I am realizing that you are singing some of the back vox.. exellent... to your credit, on the first listen I thought it was Him singing

Waves of harmony
Nice deep sub-bass and an ominous intro. The opening melody is lovely and has an appealing, slightly detached feel to it that makes for a great hook. Really nice performance I Spike! I also like the wandering vocal line behind the verse and refrain that compliments the mellow pad synth.

I dig the shift in perception when you add the heavy reverb to the vocals in the refrain, but I wonder if that part couldn't be brought up in the mix a bit? I don't think you would lose the desired effect.

The ambient sounds, breakdowns, and percussive effects are a real treat!

I'd also like to suggest that you consider sharpening (emphasizing the higher frequencies and attack envelope) of the snare and the high-hat-like part that pans left and right in the rhythm. Making those parts crisp would really accentuate by contrast the rich reverb and ambiance that you've woven throughout the piece.

Lovely and lush song embedded in a billowing landscape of harmonies. You two have crafted something beautifully ethereal and unique - tres magnifique!

MissChaos said 3870 days ago (January 13th, 2007)
hey chikoppi
I had the percussion a little more sharp to begin with, but I've had comments in the past about certain sounds that become too distracting when they're too frequent and too "sharp". So on this mix, I deadened the treble on the perc tracks a bit so they wouldn't be distracting... But I think you're on to something. My struggle was more with volume than it was with attack and definition. I think you're right. The percussion needs that definition, but not necessarily volume.

You have become my favorite "ears" at Macjams. I hope I may be able to pick your brain a bit when I re-work this in the future. Your advice is very much appreciated. thank you!

It seems that the difference between MJ performances and those in the "real world" (as per Ed's Genesis comment) are becoming more and more blurred.

By the way, my vocal cameo was on an older song of mine. :-) I'm still not comfortable singing yet. I'm too inclined to leave that up to the real talents, yourself included. Thanks again, my friend.

You can sing, too, Miss C? How are we mere mortals to keep up with you? You sounded so lovely, I really hope you keep singing, although I'm going to have to ask you to play with one hand tied behind your back, just to give the rest of us a fighting chance.

Great lyrics and vocal by Mr. Spike, too. The stand-out for me is the "I hear voices," line, as other people have mentioned. It's very head-sticky.

What a lush, emotional atmosphere the two of you have created. Wonderful.
MissChaos said 3869 days ago (January 15th, 2007)

I'm mortal, I assure you. :-) A little neurotic, but mortal nevertheless. Thanks for the encouragement. Like I said above, I still don't feel comfortable hearing my own voice. I don't know how you do it. I have so much admiration for singers and I often wish I had the courage to just let go and belt it out as you do. I'd love to have your voice on a song some day. :-) It was honor enough to have Mr. I. Spike lend his talents -- man, what a treat! Thank you, dear Lisa-girl and fellow pink lady.

Appreciate that very nice comment. I agree, too, about mixing vox with electronica. Especially when it's done gracefully, and not your typical sampled movie sound bites and super-effected vocal bits. I. Spike is a rare talent for writing lyrics and finding the right way to sing them - not to mention sing them so damn well!

A perfect last tune of the evening...
Well..., a match just doesn't get more perfect than this one... I had never really heard the first version of this on a decent system, and now I'm listening to it on a REALLY nice one....

Is it even possible for you guys to know how good this is... I mean, I know that you can know how well it turned out for you, but can you truly know how incredible the two of you sound together here...

To say that it's beautiful doesn't quit seem to capture what I hear/feel, so I requested the help of a thesarus just to see how many ways we could approach what I can't think to come up w/ on my own. The results of my finding are below, and edited by me. I hadda learn a few words, but I'm sure they'll come in handy for either of yer future tunes.

MOST admirable work, alluring, angelic

MOST admirable work, alluring, angelic<-I actually thought that appealing<--please -- delicate<--yeah... delightful, divine<--YEP, especially so -- elegant, BEYOND enticing, excellent, exquisite, fascinating, FINE (i thought this should be capped) gorgeous, graceful, grand, lovely, magnificent, marvelous, REALLY nice, (that one needed help too) QUITE pleasing, refined, JUST splendid, stunning, TRULY sublime, superb<-- uh huh!!! -- TRULY symmetrical (in structure), wonderful

Can't believe they left out sexy...

Your singing is truly sublime, Mr. Spike!

Those lows - The choir thing - All of the synth action in this -- The lyrics... **shaking head**...

It's hard to believe that this wasn't meticulously planned to be, and from the begining - Maybe it was...

I lost count of how many times I've played this tonight...

This is an outstanding piece of work, guys!

Congrads!!!

Thanks! -- Macca

A hard comment to follow
Unless I talk about, in detail, my day up to hearing this song I will never beat Mac's comment in length, so I'm not even going to try.

This track, however, does deserve a long and detailed comment about how much I liked it. That's why I almost feel guilty for not doing so.

I loved this. The composition, the production, the singing, the lyrics and the overall beauty of it - I loved it all.
I hope this short comment suffices :)

A wonderful piece of music.

I'm really glad you made it to our song page! And no, a lengthy comment isn't necessary despite the generosity of our good friend, Macca. :-) Just you simply letting us know that you enjoyed this and found it pleasant is good enough! Thanks so much for letting us know!

What a team
Spike and Chaos, you guys are bread and butter, tea and scones, very much going well together. A lovely, spacious arrangement and Spike, what a voice man - you weren't kidding when you said it was your main bag - simply beautiful. Great lyrics, very evocative - the visuals I get off of this are dazzling. Thanks, you two! I hope you do more of these collabs in the future!

Ok.. I swear I had commented on this... I know I listened to it before.. completely puzzled at my airheadedness as I am such a fan. lol.

Of course I love it... your bridges and chnage ups are worthy of study and of course I Spikes half of the collab is fab fab fab.

I cant say anything other than your talent is raw and packe dwith slow motion explosives. I love listeneing to your music and getting your EP was one of the best music buys I had made in years. I hope you always trust in your talent because you have it in spades.

mc, I am very impressed with this piece with the chord progressions and deep electronic textures, haunting lyrics and backups. The tonal mode is mysterious just the way I like it. You too iSpike with your contribution vocal wise sets the the mood for this journey. Thanks for the ride. D/Fav

Like the best cake I ever ate ..
.... this is mixed to perfection, a cool, icy concoction. This is soothing, but the 'I hear voices' gives it a dark little twist.
You've both excelled here - IS's vocals are beautifully pure, and the instrumental backing is gorgeous.

This goes on my playlist tonight.

It's not electro pop
Forgive me, but I don't think this piece classifies as electro pop. I know, I know. It's not about the classification anyways. But electro pop has a specific signature of raw eighties synthesizers that make it distinctively different. A good example of electro pop is Calvin Harris with "Not Acceptable In The 80s".

This isn't a bad song though. Very rich, and it could well be a ballad on a pop CD I just bought in a store. It is a bit softer, but reminded me to David Bowie's "Bring Me The Disco King".

Excellent!
drakonis, recommended that I check you out MissChaos, and man am I glad he did. This is just wonderful. You have a real ear for electronica. Beautiful scaping sounds, gentle melody and great sensibilities in this tune. The vocals are very nice as well. Love the lyrics and you voice I. Spike. Thanks for the great tune.

Amazing.

Hi
This was a real thrill to listen too. A wonderful
creation and reminds me of the film I think it was called the snow queen. Where this beautiful snow queen lures hansome young men to her snow palace and turns them into ice. Spike loved your voice, music was also of an excellent standard to my two ears. Cheers. Thanks
for sharing this brilliant song,
Peace Dee.
