Chaos goes by too fast - a collaboration with my sons and I
I had written and recorded two songs for 50/90 so far and then felt this tremendous internal pressure to find space to write while simultaneously being frustrated by constant interruptions by my kiddos. Today I decided to include and incorporate them. I gave my 6 year old son free reign of the Garage Band loops and the voice distortions. He and my 8 year old son added alarms, beats they liked, table banging, conversation, riffs and general (loud - brace yourself and probably don't listen with headphones) noises and talking. They think "louder" is hilarious and better. Then I added lines at the end. I can't separate what I do musically from these people I live with. I am shaped by them and made better. This song won't be for everyone but I love the madness and beauty of making music while living life.
* Update! When I mixed it down, I didn't realize how many of the tracks I had muted to record the last bits. I added them back in and updated the track.

(absolute chaos for awhile)
The days are long, the years fly by too fast...to fast
The days are long, the nights are longer but the years fly by too fast
My body gets weak, my heart grows stronger and the days and the years go by too fast
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
