In this one, I have samples of these Buddhist guys, you can hear ’em real clearly! I actually got this sample approved and paid for it. Nice!
We took Tamara’s poem Ash, and also some of her reading from the Tibetan Book Of The Dead, **EDIT** – in which she uses the word “apathy” instead of the name that you would usually use – personifying apathy and then killing it off – she reminded me to say this **END EDIT** and I had a few takes of her on different tracks, and I weaved ’em in and out. It’s just these pieces of poetry coming in and out. But over the course of the tune, you do end up hearing the whole thing. But you hear a piece, and then you hear another piece, and then you hear a prievous piece, and so the time sequences is completely junked!
I had to do all this fading with four different faders using four fingers and stuff and weaving them up and down. It was skillz, baby. Skillz!
“I am here
with a handful of sky
and a promise
to be alive”
Boy that made me tear up just now. Wow that’s quite a poet, that Tamara chick.
