#DaCaLuF 128: Crystal Never Hurts Whales

Crystal Never Hurts [off still echoes (2013)] travels with whales trailing the Bellais family off the coast of Argentina.

Des baleines … encore des baleines … on adooooooore !
Musique: Crystal never hurts par Westy Reflector

——————————-
The Bellais family from France is traveling around the world in a converted old fire truck for 2-years. They’ve used a few of my tracks in their video episodes, and it’s an absolute kick to follow along and hear my songs pop up every so often. Follow them here:

still echoes

26 january 2013

crystal never hurts
manhattan bridge train
she still echoes
tweed square
66/55
flying time
like these chords
sliver of sky
the 12th step
the rime of the ancient…
i must have love

PROCESS:

This is my 28th submission to the Junto. This is a mix of my work for the Junto and singles and demos I’ve released (and one not) this year. Thank you to everyone in the group for your generosity, friendship and acceptance. And a special Thank You! to Mark Weidenbaum of http://disquiet.com, for dreaming up this amazing opportunity to learn and grow as a musician, songwriter, sound artist and general noisemaker.

These are just stitched together, eq’ed and compressed a bit for volume stability.

PROJECT:

This week’s project is a sound journal, an audio history of the past year. You will select a different audio element to represent each of the past 12 months of 2012. You will then select one five-second segment from each of these audio elements. Then you will stitch these dozen five-second segments together in chronological order to form one single one-minute track. There should be no overlap or gap between segments; they should simply proceed from one to the next.

These audio elements will most likely be of music that you have yourself composed and recorded, but they might also consist of phone messages, field recordings, or other source material. These items should be somehow personal in nature, suitable to the autobiographical intention of the project; they should preferably of your own making, and not drawn from third-party sources.

crystal never hurts

a rock/pop song sneaks out from behind an ambient intro. what you never know never hurts.
– :^D

crystal, I was truly blessed by that
necklace prism rainbow
splashed across your breast.

now look at the sky we made
and all the stars we named
they’re just goodbye songs.

what you never know never hurts
if we never meet again, rest assured.
don’t waste time between the lines
of everything you learned.
what you never know never hurts.

that was the best of me
back in two thousand three.
shelter + safety.
i believed we’d have

a life beyond the rave.
we could curtain the world away.
but nothing works that way.

what you never know never hurts
if we never meet again, rest assured.
don’t waste time between the lines
of everything you learned.
what you never know never hurts.
