about

This song was written in artistic dialogue with illustrator, stop-motion animator and puppeteer Anna Leely.

I sketched out the music and tempo, Anna created some storyboards, I wrote some lyrics inspired by the storyboards, and we volleyed back and forth in this fashion, creating the song and video (youtu.be/YG6dFT4jADY) in tandem.

The video loosely depicts the story of Icarus and Daedalus.

lyrics

HOMESICK

homesick for the blues of the vacant sky
clutching the empty night air in the wake of a lullaby

...with you...

haunted by the language of quiet gestures
your hand upon mine, as the silence falls over the world

take me with you...
take me with you...
