Lyrics
Starlight rests on the branches and the twigs of the night

Lift my head take a breath take a step I'm alright

Branches' cradle home
take me with you
beneath the dome
of distant thoughts and ideas for all time

Sunlight rests behind the blind contemplation of night

Solidify truth in sparkle cast light

Branches' cradle home
take me with you
beneath the dome
of present thoughts and ideas for all time

Wow
How do ya do it each note sung moving perfectly with each chord change! The back up vox ties it in and makes this piece of music stand out! Great lyrics also love the line sunlight rests behind the blind contemplation of night! You can think about that one line all night!

Hey bandit
Much Thanks! I'm glad you liked the song. I wanted to come up with a subject that was kind of vague and wacky, in my own sort of way. Thanks for stopping!

Very
unusual vocals - had to listen twice to appreciate them. Very original sounding.

cool song
but it's to short. has a cool sound to it. Really liked the slap back echo you applied to the vocals. gives it a bit of a ethereal sound. thinking about it Elvis would do that at times in his early years.
Really enjoyed it!

Hey Vic
Thanks for the comment! I usually lay down the vocal then tweak the sound. This time I set the main effects and monitored them while I recorded. It helped me play the sound a bit with my voice. Then followed with some fine tuning.

It was fun!

Short but sweet!
Interesting piece Doug...the feel takes me back to certain sounds on the Dead's old AOXOMOXOA album. LOVE the lyrics!

Be well bro!

Thanks Man!
I'm glad you took time from you learning program to visit! Bobby Weir, I can see it!

Happy you like it!

Such beautiful guitar playing,...
What a beautiful sound you have. You have really done some fine poetry here, and sing it well. Such a great metaphor for thoughts and ideas, the dome. Even if space is infinite, it will appear as a dome, becuase all distances are equal from the center, regardless of its location. If the universe is finite, it still appears as a dome, because we can't tell the distance to stars by looking at them. Allot to think about here. "distant thought" and "present thoughts" we may be one life among much more out there, but we all experience the same principles, maybe just express them differently.

Ian!
I thought you might like this! It was inspired as one, perhaps, walking down a path. Infinity means there is the infinite possibility of pattern and/or finite.

Another wacky paradox.

Glad you stopped!

Hello
You've got a great vibrato going in your voice. The song and lyrics are very catchy, I really like it.

Thanks C
It's taken a bit to be able to use my voice. I'd say it's mostly performance anxiety.

Thanks for the complement!

Terrific vocal (with a great, soulful
vibrato) and very nice guitar playing. The lyrics are interesting and oddly comforting. I do wish it were longer, though! Very nice work. Thanks for sharing. Peace.

Yeah, it's set in a comfortable place. But the subject is difficult and probably unanswerable. Or is it?!

Thanks,
Doug

This is a song to highlight your singing and it sounds great. Nice subtle addition of the electric guitar too.

Thanks

Great song - excellent vocals
I hear the early Dead sound Mike referred to - and there's also a bit of Devendra Banhart and the whole new Freak Folk scene happening. But more important than the comparisons is the originality of your vision and the purity of it's execution. Well done.

Thanks Tom!
Just trying to come up with some sounds. Good to have support! Vocals have always been a weak point. I think I'm working things out, though!

Sparkle Cast Light...
...that would make a kick ass band name, you should coin that, lol. I really enjoy your voice, this reminds me of REM, I love the dripping emotion in Michael Stipe's vocals and you're very there with this tune. And the guitar totally sparkles!

Another great song! You seem to squeeze so much out of the guitar and your voice. Wish I could do that.

nice lyrics
some creative lyrics. i'd be interested to hear the orchestral version you have plans. i think the vocals could be a little softer to create the mellow mood this piece seems to aim for.

Unusual...
...in a good way. The beginning of the song had me wondering what was going on, and by the end I was sort of hypnotized.

Pretty cool!

Jethro Tull feel to it.

Add a little flute work in there, bring in some crunchy electric lead and... who knows? ;)

Yeah, this one might be a work in progress. Perhaps I can evolve it from simple acoustic to a full electric.

Lotsa possibilities!

What's your personal?
Nice one to chose. I liked the striped down approach. Maybe just a tad too much reverb on the vox. (I say that because I care)

Take care,

Dave

Thanks Dave!
Lately, it's not been as much of an issue of how much, but rather what type of reverb to use. So this is a puzzle for me. I'm sure that if I can get beyond presets, I will make better progress.

Thanks,
Doug

composerclark said 4077 days ago (April 19th, 2008)
Nice tune!
I think this this is a really good song, but, as with some other listeners, it took me a while to get used to the degree of slapback reverb on the vocals... I read in the "What is your personal..." forum thread (which is how I found this!) that you're thinking of doing this again, with a different treatment, and I'd definitely be into hearing that!

Well Hello Clark!

I've got my mind turning on a new version as we speak!
