Concentric

Circles and circles
I see concentric circles
Leading and calling
Circles in the wind

Backwards and forwards
I move backwards and forwards

Leading and fading
Moving in the night

Circles and circles
I see concentric circles
Pulling and falling
Circles in the wind

Coast to coast
And ship to shore
These circles on my lips
Coast to coast
And night to day
These circles on my lips

Motion and ballast
I see oceans and conflicts
Flowing and falling
Daybreak in the sky

Motion and headway
I see billboards and sidewalks
Growing and clawing
Catch the fire inside

EO – the first version of this was significantly different.  It was all SH101 and distorted breakbeats. But it wasn’t quite sitting right.  Jill suggested, however, that it had the “right amount of buttrock” to be remixed.  I’d been solicited for a remix for a compilation so I started working up a different mix, and liked the ideas from it so much that I went back and rewrote the “original mix.”  I’d recorded the bulk of the string parts in an hour from an improvised line I’d come up with.
