Wow, where to begin... San Japan was a great con, but alas, I was out the entirety of Saturday with one of the worst cases of food poisoning I've ever had. Feeling better now, but at the time I was miserable, stayed in bed all day long, and watched Obama's town hall health care speech, Tiger Woods, and Ratatouille. Larry had to cover both of our panels himself, but he got an assist from Mega Ran on our ReMixing panel. A huge & hearty thanks to all who chipped in, all who showed up, and special thanks to San Japan staff, in particular Dave Henkin and Ken Wallen - in addition to being plain old awesome, this was a really well-organized convention. While I was out for most of it, I did get up & about on Sunday, and in addition to having already met Raheem, the LeetStreet Boys, ZeaLouS1, and others, we got to meet none other than VGM legend The Fat Man, George Alistair Sanger himself. We didn't get to chat for all that long, but for me at least it was a rather legendary moment.
Right then, on with the show: Here's another gem from Echoes, this time a vocal collab between OA and DragonAvenger. Mr. Luers writes:
"This was a really fun track to work on, and it seemed to come together really fast. I think DA's voice is perfect for the mood we were trying to convey, which is a sort of mysterious tension with sinister overtones. Projectwise, it's the lead-in track to the Climax of the final battle, so it needed to slowly build. The end leaves you expecting more, which is more effective in the album itself (with the next track resolving), but i think it works well enough to stand on its own. Lyrics came together really fast, with DA making a few welcome suggestions at the end. The title is a reference to game storyline. Extra thanks to Jay, Connor, and Justin for whispers and effects. You guys are awesome."
"When Andrew originally asked me what track I wanted to do on the project, I give him a few options, Another Moon being one of them. He immediately jumped on it, and I was pretty much along for the ride. He came up with lyrics when I was stuck, which I helped him complete later on. We both worked towards creating an ominous feel, in lyrics, voice, and during the track as a whole. Working with him was really easy, and he was always open to my ideas. The style of the song worked well with my voice, I love the effects that Andrew added. I look forward to working with him again."
I'm looking forward to that, too. The overall tone here has that hanging, suspenseful, "premonition" vibe nailed - it's basically the opposite of instant gratification, so it's not something you'll be toe-tappin' to or even necessarily humming afterward, but it creates a moment that's portentous and clouded... very unique. I've been seeing a lot of people who have spent more time re-listening to Echoes beginning to appreciate its depth more through repeated exposure; this is one of those tracks that warrants repetition to fully appreciate the environment OA & DA created. One of many reasons to check out the album if you haven't already, but also a peculiar, inventive, and well-executed piece of music in its own right.

In the darkness
No one knows what
Broken minds think
From the deep void
Second moon now
Bleeding skies red
I can hear it
Calling my name
