I was very lucky to have such great players add their parts to this song which translated the intensity that I had wanted throughout the music, they all did an awesome job and set the song on fire...
Also, on the album I have a second version of "Of Rapture", which is a hidden track. Recorded 2 months after I wrote the song, it is more acoustic based and very raw as it was just fairly new. I had a fabulous musician, Dan Morley, record this version and also add his own accompaniment with various instruments, it's very different sounding than this newer polished one that I have up, but it seemed to capture the raw edgeiness and primitive feel of the song and its beginning stages.


Some of my ideas for this song were also born from the movie, "The English Patient", I was so mesmerized by the music, scenery, and passion of the ____script and actors. I tried to bring from the movie what I had retained on an emotional level, and "Of Rapture" just came out. The music and lyrics were written in one day.

Obvious in my desire, consumed by the fire of your secret love
Red is the color I see, when bathed in your sensuous glow
Come one step closer to me, and I am overcome

Suddenly I feel so light, all of my senses undone
Suddenly I feel so alive, knowing that you are the one
To bring me, into this state of rapture

Dangerous is your desire, seduced by the power of your cryptic love
Red is the color we'll make, our bodies joined in our senuous glow
Touch the deepest parts of me, and the passion overflows

Suddenly I feel so light, all of my senses undone
Suddenly I feel so alive, knowing that you are the one
To bring me, into this state of rapture

You have awakened this world inside of me
One universe, with no boundaries
I will give you, full surrender
Body, mind, and soul
To take you, to take you
Through this rhapsody

Suddenly I feel so light, all of my senses undone
Suddenly I feel so alive, knowing that you were the one
To bring me, into this state of rapture
Of Rapture, Of Rapture, Of Rapture, Of Rapture

Compelling vocal performance on a song with middle eastern elements that is perhaps the crown jewel of her oeuvre.

Yetis are happy but bigfoot.............
The spanish cadence like Am G F E repeated many times for the Yetis . Use of the phrygian scale OLÉ the Yetis said . Yeti´s spanish too. Arab arabesques in the melodic line . Yetis like this cause they heard the thousand nights when they were small.


The Talent Searcher
Gina have won a Golden Kayak and it´s deserved. This is a song about passion that use melodic turns and cadences of spanish music and it´s a great demonstration of talent. From the woodwind introduction to the rythm guitar intro that is follow by arab/turk/spanish melodic turns in Gina´s voice. This is an interesing fusion of rock/pop/roots music. The meters are great, take note of the percussion and lead guitar.


Huminuh's World's Best Salad Bar
Gina can just go any direction she wants to and do it well. This song and Gina is much deserving of the award.

Wow is all I can say. This girl is at her peak form. In a very origianl yet almost animalistic and instinctual way. It touches the very deepest part of ourselves.
