Ineffective Parenting Techniques
@marvsmooth sent me this music track, so I messed with it a little and then did the spoken word bits.
This is based on a true story; Mrs. Fuzzy and I went on vacation in March, and we had to listen to a mother ineffectively parenting her child with this kind of thing on the five-hour flight there, during the week at the hotel, and on the five-hour flight back, as well as in both airports.
It was pretty much constant.
Needless to say, James ran rampant the entire time.
While the mother looked after James, the father was off chatting up all the young ladies he could find, including the flight attendants on both airplanes.
This year I was thinking how much I love coming up with musical backing, and how I love collaborating with people in different ways.
This, and another piece already up, use instrumental pieces I gave to Fuzzy (I’ve sent some to others as well), with the idea of it being sprinkled with the collaborators’ own magic dust and cauldron spell casting.
Musically I had early eighties era King Crimson in mind, albeit using keyboards and melodica for the most part, although I hope people will notice the Fripp influenced guitar figure when it arrives, and thinking of that era of Crimson, I thought of Adrian Belew’s wild vocal stylings, which made me think that Fuzzy was the perfect partner for this, and I was right!
He’s really gone to town providing a great story, and wonderful execution.
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
