A bunch of jams for a project on "happiness" which it turns out is a concept so subjective I decided I may as well make it 'all about me' and just soundtrack some of my happier memories. Recorded @ Fort Alamut.
00:00:00/00:00:50 - "Kamo River" - A day and night in Kyoto riding bikes up and down the river; the lights from the riverside inns reflected in the water dotted with sakura blossums. The melancholy of knowing you could be experiencing your best ever day. A friend commented on hearing this that it sounds like the soundtrack for some lost John Cusack movie "Where he's moping in the middle of a high-school track-field - in a trench coat, in the rain - and offers one solitary fist pump."
00:00:50/00:02:11 - "Add 9" - The time I got hit and run by a car (which was a drag) and ended up on my back (with ruptured discs) full of pethedine and valium playing playstation and sleeping for a whole month (which was swell; mostly). Bonus points if you can work out what game it was. Intro vocal sound is a sample from ☠DEAD❤ISLAND☠ off of D.A.I.S.Y. Rage by Kitty Pryde.
00:02:11/00:03:28 - "Wild Palms" - Skateboarding with my brother around Venice Beach. Haunted by the ghosts of Logic System and YMO.
00:03:28/00:05:41 - "Telepath Motel" - A track for long distance running; the short version for jaunts around the block. Intro vocal sound is a sample from ☠DEAD❤ISLAND☠ off of D.A.I.S.Y. Rage by Kitty Pryde.
