BLUES FOR A HIP KING
(P Smith)

I could be made believing that
I have got something
to believe in but...

...how I'm deceived by
everyone.
Does it bother me?
Yes, it bothers me...

...like being seated 'round the Vinci table
with nothing more to say...

...to them friends that seek my disappearance
yet wishing I could stay...

...to take care of all of those who bothers
to care for my believes gone astray...

...like the peace of mind of mine.
There's none for me
none for me around

'cause you're a no good chum
You're no good...

Have you forsaken me or why
do you pass me by?
Do I hang too high?

Had me fooled
by the jazzy overtones... and then the vocal... which did not sound at all like what I was expecting... that's not to say I was disappointed... quite the opposite. you've created a completely original work of art... love the treatment on the vocal... cool lyrics (you're a no good chum).

This is a very cool and interesting song.... and yes- sad and bluesy. Amazing really... everytime I think I figure it out you add something off the wall... harmonica and then strings...? Really cool beyond belief!

The journey
Totally cool journey. Love the 2 tracks you've shared so far. I noticed what sounded like the grooves of a record (LP) at the end. Was that a recorded string quartet? I'd love to now the process of recording you went thru to complete this track.

Yepp, I added some good old vinyl scratch to the mix. I like the analog atmosphere. And the strings are a quartet recorded live in the studio. The process of making this tune is a looong story, but in short I recorded the up-right bass, the bass clarinet solo and the string quartet individually. Then I added some Reason samples, an excerpt from a chamber ensemble piece of mine and last but not least sounds from animals in a rain forrest. Then the vocals and the blues harp. And finally the piano.

The whole idea with this piece was to find out wether or not I could make a tune with just one chord. E major...
