Milkyway (promptwriting)
on: April 03, 2022, 10:43:15
« Last Edit: April 17, 2022, 19:50:45 by oorlab »
Following the current prompt from @BayBlues  I made this
https://soundcloud.com/oorlab/milkyway-promptwriting/s-W4ltwkdJYeJ



the sky tonight
seems cut in two
good and bad,
false and true.

Will the world
turn like we want it to
or is it spinning
Out of control?

Love or hate
Mind or matter.
Just like the light in the sky
is scattered
from the axis of the milkyway.

looking up is looking down,
Gazing at what we can't see -
just like the light in the sky
is scattered,
from the axis of the milkyway.


The track is shared here privately on soundcloud, it is downloadable and reusable under a CC BYNC SA licence, and I'm open to collaborating ideas for this track. :pompom: :praise:

I bet youíll find it a bit hard to believe, but Iíll say it anyway:
I think this is near perfect in its simplicity and atmosphere.
Collab any way you want it, but I would urge you to safe this gem as well for future reference.

But why, you maybe want to ask, donít you do things like this one?
The truth is, that I canít.

I seem to hold on to Tina Turners rap between songs in Het Kuhrhaus Scheveningen (feb1971):
ĎWe never ever do nothing nice and easy, we always do things nice and roughí, the intro of Proud Mary.
And there, Iíve said it.

A great contribution to the world of Prompt Writing.
A very very fine piece of work @oorlab !
Kind regards, Gus

As simple and minimlaistic as the track was produced, it has something to make you fanzinate. I like him    ::thumb::

Well @oorlab I must say I agree with @LePlongeur ... the genuine pensive mood and sparseness of this recording will be a challenge to maintain with any added layers.  Not impossible and you should do it... but keep the original.

Fitting lyrics as well!  :thumbsup:

Hola @oorlab
I liked it a lot, its atmosphere is intimate, introspective, and the piano and minimalist instrumentation surround it with quality and warmth.
Very good job, that's the truth, I think it does not need anything more.

Stay well

@oorlab  . . . well this was a very interesting listen, and I liked it a lot ! . . . for me: musical memories of 1940's pop, pink floyd, and some outer space synthesizer . . . vocals very centered, pensive worldly lyrics . . . it's got a lot, for such a simple piece . . . very well done there !
