when you stand by the sea
do you see me in the rise and fall of the waves
am I your slave, or are you mine?
tied together by time
until death, I am your breath
Written in reverence to a yoga practice that is the body’s natural mantra, repeated throughout one’s life. Such is ajapa japa, the ‘song of the breath’.
I use the inbuilt vocoder of Logic Pro, which takes vocal input and translates into one or more synthesizer voices mediated by a midi keyboard. And the bells at the end of the piece are a product of my favourite synth, a most complex and delightful machine simply called ‘Sculpture’.
