Description
I heard this piece that Kenta (Skean) posted and just loved those sounds he put together, giving to me a real impression of time and distance, the universe and all that it encompasses. I downloaded it and wrote some words and recorded it; sent it to Kenta and he approved after giving it a little tickle in the mix. I think it sounds like something Grace Jones or Bowie might have done (the song I mean, not my performance). I'd like to thank Kenta for being so helpful too, so thanks again my friend for letting me loose on this. The original is here http://www.macjams.com/song/58407.

Lyrics
Timeless

Time goes by; we all ask ‘why’?
We grow old and in time we die,
Time goes by; it always will,
Sometimes fast and sometimes slow.

Time flies, who knows where?
Man made, here or there,
Time is an elusive thing,
Wait a while, see what it brings.

Time itself is a’timeless too,
Can’t be seen, but to me and you.
It’s a measuring tool of what will come,
‘Been going on since the World began.

Time goes by; we all ask ‘why’?
We grow old and in time we die,
Time goes by; it always does,
Sometimes fast, then sometimes slow.

Time itself is a’timeless too,
Can’t be seen, but to me and you.
It’s a measuring tool of what will come,
‘Been going on since the World begun.

Time itself is a timeless thing
Planets spin and the Universe sings.
The blink of an eye is a life for some,
Don’t even ask how old the Sun

Time goes by; we all ask ‘why’?
We grow old and in time we die-ie-ie-ayyy,
Time goes by, time goes by,
It’s a measuring tool, of what will come.
Been going on, since the World began.
Time itself is a timeless thing
Spin of a Planet, the Universe sings.
The blink of an eye is a life for some,
Don’t even think how old the Sun,
Time goes by…. Time goes by……

I think that you captured the mode of this song very well. It has a very spacey feel to it which makes the song very interesting. Cool collab!

Space rap!!!
Maurice,
It's nice to hear another "old dog" learning new tricks. You've got that "voice of experience" that just (at 2:38...WWW Wonderful slide up!) emotes understanding of the world, a perfect addition to Kenta's atmospheric score. You amaze me with not only your versatility, but also your endless imagination. Nice...Nice...Nice.

Voice of experience LOL!
Oh I've got that alright Paul LOL Glad you liked this and also the voice split at 2.38 to give that slight scary feel of doom. I'm glad that you too are of an eclectic nature music-wise, it makes for a more colourful life, I'm sure you'll agree. Thank you for the kind words, regards M

Cameron said 2861 days ago (January 25th, 2010)
Grace Jones' brother! ;-)
Maurice, this is really cool. I'm not very familiar with your work but this is about to change!

Your delivery on this perfectly complements Kenta's sound bed.

It *DOES* remind me of Grace Jones' rather robotic, mono-tone style, which I've always liked a lot. Your performance is YOU, of course, but let's call it a close sibling to Grace. Very effective.

The mix is crisp and clear, with a lot of depth. It's an excellently balanced sound in my headphones.

Great work, guys!

Moviz said 2860 days ago (January 25th, 2010)
Yes Cameron
it occurred to me after i'd recorded it that it had that Grace Jones sound. I was trying to get the sound of humanity travelling or marching through the ages with this multi vocal effect and it does have that robotic feel to it which is one of her techniques. Thank you very much for the nice words.... much appreciated.
If you do decide to check out my past works, you'll find them quite varied with regard to genre and style LOL, regards M

Doug Somers said 2853 days ago (February 2nd, 2010)
Maurice and Kent - timelords
Almost a poetic performance art piece. The lyrics remind me of something the Moody Blues would have penned - multi-layered in meaning. Your processed VOX is a spot on addition to the original track. I like how your lyric follows the underlying musical twists where it varies from the regular pattern. It all goes together beautifully. The underlying track is pure Kenta and moves along steadily and with a comfortable rhythm under swirls of shimmer.

For some reason I hear (concocted in my head) a low mumbled chanting in eighth notes in the background in the latter part of the song. Don't ask why.

Lovely work you guys!!!

Be well,
Doug
