Description
Something completely different for me..nudge, nudge! One of the many magic incarnations of Skean.
A dedication: For Alan Zastrow who will always be the best friend I ever had.
Alan was one of my Art Students. He took Painting, Drawing and Calligraphy when I taught those at the Air Force Academy Art Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
He died of a heart attack at the age of 37. I miss him every day of my life. I love you, Alan. I hope this posting of one of your paintings makes you smile.
Your teach, Charlene. :)

Lyrics
You know I would..do any thing
You know that I tried..to hold your heart
>>
Why do we keep going on?
We had our dreams, yours and mine
>>
You know I want..just ev'ry thing
But, I find we are world's apart
>>
Might as well say done is done
Our dreams, they live outside this shrine
>>
You know I would..do any thing
You know that I tried.. to hold your heart
>>
How did we lose our way?
Or, were we lost from the start?
>>
I did every thing!
But, you NEVER gave me your heart

Lyrics: Charlene M. Kankiewicz

It was fun

Much love your friend

Don't get your bloomers in a knot. I threw the lyrics out. The squirrels are typing them up as I dictate. If I had to wait, it would've delayed the posting. So, wait for it. Thank you for dropping by. We appreciate your time. :)

Skean is an absolute
sweetheart. This is his music and his production. I have no idea why he thought to ask me to write for and sing to this. We could have tweaked it. I can hear places where I could sing differently, but..we, together didn't want to beat it to death. So, here it is. If you don't like it, it is all my fault. Thank you Skean. Nice to have something up, after 2 months of being crippled by a stodgy PC. I Love you, guy. Thanks!!

No shit?
I think this could be an open collab, if it was all right with Skean. I'd sing a couple lines with different intonation. I had done one really nice take but Ms. Rosemary leaped onto the desk and threw me off. Possibly, this is good the way it is. I tend to"Bo Peep" stuff..so, I've been told.
Thanks, Dave. :)

It's
so okay to have an open collab, cos we all should have some fun don't we :D

And yes I had it little hard to choice as you give me 3 takes, I know I could had cut a past between them, to tell you the true I did a test but I did not like it so I go back to this and used some effects on 2 voice tracks EQ it and here it is, and as we said in our mails, we do it for fun we are not pros.

Totally wicked (as my daughter says) What a wild new direction... Kenta's always great at incjecting adrenaline into any music he creates, and Char's singing is just wonderfully fitting in here, brava/bravo you two! Kenta, excellent effects on her voice, kool tuneage.

Hahhahhah! Skean is a lot easier to get along with than just about anybody else. Very relaxed. Must be the beer. I think it was good. Words came easily, as usual. My arm hurts from patting myself on the back. It was nice of Skean to think of me. Thank you, Draki. I never would have been recording any thing if you hadn't told me about having to have Audacity. Was that lame of me to mention that? You have been my great friend. I owe you. Thanks. :)

It's great when people are willing to try new things, expand horizons, and all that… You guys have come up with a truly inspired collaboration, one that is impossible to sit still for! Congrats to you both.

Your description brought a tear to my eye.

I love the painting.

Thank you.
Skean asked. I found words. I tried a few times. We both agreed it wasn't worth obsessing about. Alan was great. If I said I need help, he was there. Been gone for awhile now. I miss his crazy cards at Christmas. I never got to say goodbye. So, I am very happy you liked his painting. I taught him everything he knew ..at least that which he needed me for: technique, mostly. He already had vision. Thanks. :)

The pink record button
I guess I won't ask you to re-master my latest song. Well, you will learn, whether intentionally or not. Maybe you're just being modest. Oh lord. You are funny and this is a fun tune. Skean was a good choice for a collab. On the flip side, not too fun when I read the dedication. I don't know how to respond to the ambiguity. Impressive artwork, also.

Char said 2992 days ago (September 13th, 2009)
Skean didn't give me any artwork.
I had this of Alan's and I see people dancing in it. It is okay. I asked Skean if I could use it. He said I should say something about my friend. And so I made a dedication. Alan was Fun. He would've loved what I'm doing now. If I learn stuff I'll be dangerous. Just be forewarned. I still can't read music. Crazy, huh? Thanks, hon. :)

Henke said 2991 days ago (September 14th, 2009)
Nice to see you around again, Char
and now with a new song too! You sure do well in this faster piece too, mucho gusto, but I think maybe your voice is even better suited for more ballad-like pieces? Well done by Kenta of course and I like the colors of the art work. Sad story, though...

Take care.

thenettles said 2990 days ago (September 15th, 2009)
honest
to be honest this isnt my kind of music at all, but i'm sure someone else will love it.

the track itself is cool, but i think the effect on the vocals lets the song down, i would say either remove it or do a clean recording of the vocals with maybe a little reverb or slight echo added.

Check out my latest song called James Bond Theme Competition WORK IN PROGRESS
Skean said 2990 days ago (September 15th, 2009)
Hum!
Reverb is there as echo, but to be honest if it is not your kind of music why spend time to comment... This is all fun and I think, Char have done great as it is not hers style at all... Just saying... And one more thing is we don't try to be famous or make money...lol

Thank you.
I've always been blessed with good friends. Alan taught me that doing for someone you love was an act of love. And he made me feel protected and cared for. All I did for him was open my home and let him eat my chocolate chip cookies. We used to laugh our asses off. He's been gone since the summer of 2001.

How nice
of you "guys" to stop in. Rather new direction for me. I keep thinking I could sing this better. Even though I wrote the lyrics, I still hadn't really learned the song. Skean and I both would like to see a further version done by anyone who would like to add to this. Then, I'd try a slightly different take. It is a very bouncy dance track and Skean is a master of these energy filled songs. He's a happy guy. And that is infectious. Thanks for giving it a listen. :)

Doug Somers said 2971 days ago (October 3rd, 2009)
I love it
I am a sucker for this kind of tune - lots of energy, drive and fringe-y stuff going on to make it interesting.

Char, I'm sorry to hear of Alan's passing. It is clear he lives on in his art and in your art as well.

Thanks for collabing and bringing this to the world you two. Kent you are a wild man...

Dloaded and listened to...

Peace,
Doug

Yes, Kent
IS a wild man who does this kind of dance tune, like no one else. I hoped that I didn't screw up his happy, upbeat sound with my somewhat downbeat lyrics. Ah, well, life is full of ups and downs and we keep hoping for a little joy. I am so pleased that you enjoyed it. Thank you so much. :)

Powerful stuff Char, but I think your voice should have been a little LOUDER in the mix. No need to hide dear friend. You got it goin' on!

Be well!

Maybe, we'll re-work it someday. It was a brief interlude for Skean. He couldn't help himself. He has a lot on his mind. It made him happy to do this. And I am happy he asked me. You are very good to me, Micheal. Thanks. :)

mr_mordenus said 2949 days ago (October 26th, 2009)
Wow!
The wild patterns of musical mayhem have the force of a sonic firehose. I love the energy between the upbeat pulse of Kenta's music and the darker tone of the lyrics; that dichotomy creates a very strong pull that just entrances.

Kenta's stuff just amazes me - and your voice with his studio wizardry puts me in mind of Sarah Brightman. Just incredible stuff.
Char said 2949 days ago (October 26th, 2009)
I agree
about Kent's music. His stuff is wildly exuberant. Then there's me with my dismal view of past coloring future. So pleased you think it works. Thanks for the compliment. :)

An inspired juxtaposition
of the upbeat dance track and the textured vocals. The effect (although not your voice per se) reminds me of Bjork a little: human drama and machine beats! Great work, glad I listened...

I am...

Challenging piece/peace.
This is some serious avant-dance, and I've become so died-in-the-wool myopic in my musical choices that I have to admit some trouble finding the beat and your vocal treatment accessible. HOWEVER I am commenting this because I want to stretch my perceptions a bit.

In your voice I'm getting a ind of alternating between facing the listener in a postmodern dialog (third person plural lines), and doing some more direct, cathartic and on-pitch emoting to the second person subject of the lyrics. There's a challenge to me here in that alternation. There's also a seriously turgid beat here, and your vox-trem weaves nicely with that crazy-driven beat.

In all this tension, we find the challenge of aggressive art. And in that art I find your honoring Alan with some acceptance amid questions that might never give you rest. PLEASE FORGIVE ME if I have overstepped in my attempt to come to terms with this intense piece.

Dyed in the wool..
and myopic mean unwilling to see beyond the usual. Your listening and your analysis show me you are neither of those two things. Skean sent his music fully realized. I am not a musician. I wrote something that came to me and I sang it as best I could, using a melody that ran alongside the existing music. I relied on Skean to let me know if it was acceptable. To my surprise, he liked it. I thought of Al's painting as being abstract, like Skean's music but also figurative and subjective like my lyrics and feelings. I asked him about that and he approved. The more I have listened the better I like this. I have to thank Skean for his gift of this song. Thank you so very much for stopping in and staying to hear the whole thing, even though it is unusual. There is nothing to forgive. I am grateful. :)

Yeah..
That's Skean's Dance music. I can't listen without jumping around, myself. Can you fix me up with one of your Sasquatches? I could use a hairy assed dance partner. I'm not particular. Thanks. :)

Hi John,
I know you are being kind. We did this very quickly. One take. Skean is extremely easy to please. I think I could've done much better. It was wild writing for that music. I enjoyed it. Love what Skean does. Thanks, I miss the place too. :)

A great dedication
I'm sure Alan must have been a very great person and was very lucky to have known you Char. This was one very cool track!

In him
I had a loving friend. No one should die while so young. Maybe, he was too good for this world. He had found happiness and he touched many with his kindness so he had a good, if short life. As usual, I had no idea what to do here and tried only because Skean asked me. And Skean is another wonderful person who shares a lot of Alan's traits for being kind and of good humor. Thank you for listening. Skean makes great pieces full of life. :)

I don't know
how to thank you for the interest you've shown. Skean sent the instrumental and I did the take, sent it and he mixed it in. Not until recently have I tried to back my own lyrics. I don't have a clue what I'm doing :)

I think this one
could do with a re-work. There's some potential for a better mix, maybe. I didn't know what I was doing when I tried to fit lyrics to Skean's music.
Thanks for listening, peeps.
