Who is the Lady of the Dawn? song, from a series of dreams
I dunno, these are strange times, some say the President elect may be unstable, anyway, "Movies Of Our Mind" started out w lyrics transcribed from a dream state, and I felt an urgency to make a song, and not being in studio mode, sent them off to Bryon...who took the ball and ran with it, doin' the melody, music and production, additional lyrics also...kudos, Bryon...

http://indiemusicpeople.com/artist.aspx?ID=154496

Movies Of Our Mind (partial lyrics)

Lights...camera...action

my eyes are closed, but i'm not blind
my stories told, with strange designs...
i jump off a cliff, i spin like a riff, i sink like a ship.
life...life conspires...

this life is our ode to the screen
we're foolish actors
in the movies, movies of our mind...

she's the queen of lies, queen of lies,
you're prisoner of the queen of lies...

wake up every day, forget everything we say,
who's that lady, the lady of the dawn
who's back do we walk upon?
who's behind, who's behind
the movies of our mind?

Lights...camera...action...

Well I pulled out my roland fantom XR for this one, it has great guitar sounds on it and i have recorded using it a couple times, probably been 5-6 years since i used it last, for the 1000's i spent on it,its a shame, it has so much in it and used it at the YALE blues bar in vancouver with the bluevoodoo a number of times before it closed down It has great horn shots, a monster selection of piano samples ,blues harp and cool guitar samples from hard edged to pretty cool spanish guitar feels and used my midi keyboard to work stuff out, whatever, i am no guitarist, just a keyboard piano man

Also worked with my trusty Rhodes piano for those special doors things and got my synth sounds in there as well, and being I am not a percussionist, I did work out some loops for the drums, sorry about that. no drum kit. cant drum worth beans anyways. My brother can, not me. I suck


Yes, Steve April is an awesome wordsmith , I had to pare down the lyrics, so much content. sorry, i dont sing well.on this type of thing thats a fact. just hauled out and did what i could

thanks Steve
bryon
had fun

This came out great you guys! Steve April's dreams .... there's a concept for you - so much endless imagination. I'm glad you put them down in words for sure. And, as a piano player who puts lots of tracks down on keys that have to turn into other instruments, I gotta say Well Done Bryon! Also, nice work on the vocals!

Dolores, thank you for your commentary, much appreciated. *****

Well, feel free to comment, dear listeners, "dreams are the bond between me and the riddle of creation," said Oskar Kokashka, Bryon did the soundscaping and all, i'm part screenplay writer only on the production...

Actually Bryon, I loved the vocals.. Listened to the other tunes and concluded that you've got a terrific voice..

So thanks for putting it out there.

I had no idea that you guys were working together..

Looking forward to more.

IN THE MOVIES, MOVIES OF OUR MIND ...........YEAH..........................




WAKE UP EVERYDAY, WE FORGET EVERYTHING WE SAY

WHO'S THAT LADY , THE LADY OF THE DAWN

WHO'S BACK WE WALK, WE WALK UPON

WHO'S , WHO'S BEHIND WHO's BEHIND THE MOVIES IN OUR MIND

WHO , WHO'S BEHIND WHO's BEHIND THE MOVIES IN OUR MIND YEAH...
