Razz Hi to all you fine folk,
I've decided to put this older musical offering up on Soundclick. It's called The Eternal Light of Will and is my contribution to the Confessions of Young Moderns tribute to Bill Nelson 3CD set. This was the first track recorded under the name Garden of Surreal Dreams in September 2000 (after many years of absense from making music!). So although it has some gremlins present, it really has a special place in my heart.

It's a journey in a way and goes through a number of changes during the almost six minutes duration. The vocals don't come in until over half way (excluding the spoken voice sample near the beginning). For this track I've used 12-string semi acoustic guitar, 6-string electric guitars, digital synthesizer, drum machine, vocals, plus limited hand percussion (home-made shaker & Circulon saucepan lids – nice tone man!). Play loud and you'll get a nice surprise when the drum beat eventually kicks in!

Listening back after all these years, the vocals seem too low in the mix, but they're locked in position via bounce-downs, so if you want to sing along you'll need to check the lyrics. I may re-record it sometime with better production values, but for now I like to think of it as one of my slightly rough diamonds.

Click the link just below to give it a twirl – it's at the top of the page. Thanks for reading and, in advance, for listening:

Hope you can hear the passion that went into this track.
How does it sound to you?
