12. Saving Daylight

Yesterday was a peaceful day. I did everything slowly, including, and most importantly, getting out of bed.

Work seemed to be going ok today until about 3 o’clock when I decided I didn’t like what I had been working on, and decided to start afresh. I ran over to 6 o’clock, but still, it must be some kind of record: wrote and recorded this track in three hours.

Johnny Write right click and ‘save as’

I’m not sure why I’m recording as much electro-pop as I am, it just seems to be what I want to work on at the moment. I feel like I should be fighting it in order to diversify at least a little, but I know I shouldn’t.

    I’m not sure I would call what you are doing electro-pop as it sounds more experimental, don’t pick genres. Go with what best expresses how you’re feeling and if that so happens to turn out to be something you call electro pop then so be it.

    I liked the song, one of my favourites.

    Hey Yas,
    I thought about you today – I’ve been reading lots of deconstruction about the relationship between the sign and the signifier, speech and writing and the prevelance of one over the other – it reminded me of your piece with the writing corresponding to the synth – A great illustration of impossible context and the necessity of iterability.
    hope you are happy!

    “Just like those non-memories…” – classic. Like Richard, this is one of my favourites yet.

    I could listen to this song all day.

    This is great, and very different, lyrically, to a lot of the previous recordings. I think it makes a big difference that you’re writing about a subject. Of course, it’s not some Springsteeny-story-song – and it does become more about the narrator later on in the song – but the fact that it starts by addressing some nameless ‘you’ about ‘Johnny’, broadens the range of characters, and it just sounds different. Not better or worse though.
