about

This is the latest 'single' installment from a soon to be announced 13 hour installation entitled 'One Boy's Day'. While music will be edited and refined during this 2-3 year process, I thought it might be interesting to take advantage of new digital distribution methods and offer a glimpse into the creation process.

'Mayan Yours' uses hand claps recorded at the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, Mexico. The handclaps record precise 7 beat delays embedded into the original architecture of the building structures. This acoustic phenomenon was only recently discovered by NASA scientists years after the ruins were rebuilt.

The B Side 'I Dry Gin' celebrates the pleasures and perils of drink and is dedicated to Andrew Rose Gregory.

More singles will become available through 2013-15. This single is available in 96kHz/24 Bit resolution.

Track Name: Mayan Yours
MAYAN YOURS

Where are the duds?
Where are the wannabes?
Where are the bombs waiting for history?

Send in the clowns
Artillery rounds for free
Selling the psalms
Selling the rosary

Infinity breaks and bake yellow cakes for me
Another collapse
Another sobriety

Mayan yours
Ours Mayan yours
Mayan yours
Ours Mayan yours

I have crossed a million stars
I have crossed a million stars
Waiting on the wonder
Waiting on the wonder

have crossed a million stars
Waiting on the wonder
Waiting on the wonder

Mayan yours
Ours Mayan yours
Mayan yours
Ours Mayan yours

Where are the duds?
Where are the wannabes?
Where are the bombs waiting for history?

Mayan yours
Ours Mayan yours
Mayan yours
Ours Mayan yours

I have crossed a million stars
Waiting on the wonder
Waiting on the wonder

Infinity breaks and bake yellow cakes for me
Mayan yours
Ours Mayan yours
I have crossed a million stars

Another collapse
Another sobriety
Waiting on the wonder
I have crossed a million stars

Track Name: I Dry Gin
I DRY GIN

In the morning I dry gin
In the mornings you won't let me in
And in the mornings I dry out
And forget what we were all about

And no one's winning for now
Like every one is swimming to drown

And in the middle of the night
When the bottle don't put up a fight
And in the middle of the room
That's spinning like a well worn tomb

And sober's winning for now
But no one's singing along
Like everyone else drifting alone

And in the morning I dry gin
When I beg the morning to begin
