a Perfect Circle's 'Amotion' remix cd
    #4377824 - 07/07/05 12:00 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

there are a few songs on this cd, namely the '3 Libras' remixes, that really move me.

i never really liked the original Libras song too much. i mean it's obviously a high quality presentation but it just seemed too "songy" for the real emotion of it to get through to me.

the remixes however put the song in a new light. the vocals are far removed, they sound as if they are hauntingly echoing through vast spaces-lost in the melancholic soundscape. bits and pieces of the words rise up and then fall back down as the rhythm pushes and pulses onward.

basically i just think it's beautiful.

They're all awesome, but some kind of change the meaning of the song. Well I guess that's awesome too :grin:.

First 3 tracks blew my mind wide open. I was really high, practically tripping off my first smoke of some high quality bud after a week long break.

I had great realizations of the value of negative space in music, and how well it is utilized in those particular songs.

I was talking crazy talk mostly, but I was undeniably onto something regarding the nature of music and how it is perceived by humans...

I was having metaphorical visualizations relating the wave-form to a wave in water... the crest--the cracking "edge" of the wave that hits hard--is nothing compared to the power welled up in the negative space behind the wave's perceived edge.

I felt as though each instrument's contribution to a song was kind of "dancing around" the negative space, instead of attempting to take the "lead" FROM the negative space.

Boards of Canada has a lot of songs that seem to be structured similarly.

...and other crazy talk.  :stoned:

There's probably a name for what I'm talking about... but I don't know what it is.

Edit: Oh.. I mean... yeah, I liked that CD.  :tongue:

I love the Amotion CD/DVD it's so badass. I'm listening to it right now. I love the outsider remixes.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

At first I didn't like that CD because it was so "off", after I listened to it more I loved it! It really sheds new light on the songs, just great.
