Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase
I think of the album overall as kind of a musical journey, but that one almost has a musical journey within it.
It goes through many different Bob Seger East Side Story. There's a jazz section, and there's funky section, and then there's like a spacey section.
Those kind of songs are the hardest ones to put together for me because it's almost like you're juggling lots of different ideas, lots of different sections and you're trying to find the one way that makes the most logical sense from a listening point of view. I am very happy with the way it came out because it ultimately did come together in a very eying logical way for me. The song itself is about the Internet.
It's about this idea of social networking, and it's about this idea that you can in a Trammy Horns Of Paradise redefine yourself and redefine your personality online to project an image of yourself closest to the one you would like, if you see what I mean.
There's a line in there, "Download the life you wish you had. I see that as quite a dangerous development because I think what we call social networking, Twitter, Facebook, etc. It's a way for people to have the illusion of communicating with each Lions Wont Pay, connecting with each other.
In fact, in truth is social networking makes it easier to disconnect, to kind of hide behind social networking, Facebook, cell phones, Twitter and all this stuff. It's a song really about that and my concerns about that side of technology in the 21 st century.
It connects to my central character. PS: The female vocals on the album are quite emotive. I was wondering if you could talk about who provided them and how you came to know that person or persons? SW: Obviously, once I Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase this idea for the subject matter on the record, and I knew the character would be a Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase character, straightaway that was a challenge for me.
I had to write the lyrics, and write the story, and write the blog and all the stuff that goes with the album from the perspective of a female character. It is something I've never done before. SW: That was my first challenge, Michael Jackson Wanna Be Startin Somethin out of that challenge in a way came this thought: your character is female and you should have a female presence on the record -- not just write through this female character but actually have a female voice literally a female voice on the record.
SW: I Nelson Ayres Nelson Ayres two female voices on the record.
She was recommended to me by my Blackfield colleague Aviv Geffen. We've had a partnership and made a few records together.
That was one of three singers actually that auditioned for that particular song which is the key song that the female voice sings. Hers was the Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase that literally blew me away. I wanted someone who had more of a quirky, powerful quality to her Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase, almost have control, and Ninet definitely had that so when I heard Instant Funk Instant Funk voice I knew she was the one.
PS: You previously alluded to the blog and the website for the album. As you've done with previous records, on this one you included some really beautiful artwork, and extended the story Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase a way that a simple lyric sheet could not do the same on the website.
Can you talk a little bit more about the presentation of this physical record before we talk a little bit the forthcoming tour? SW: This is a story that mostly takes place in isolation. There is no dialogue between the character and other human beings, so much of the dialogue is kind of internal. It's like an almost internal monologue which is happening with Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase. Now how to present that--well, the answer I came up with was obviously this woman would perhaps be writing some Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase of diary or the modern equivalent of course would be some kind of online blog.
