“Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”
-Tommy Lee Jones, Men in Black
This track joins a special club – that which includes compositions which slowed my computer to a crawl when inventing them, or crashed the computer entirely. This speaks both to the complexity of the song, as well as my intention to persist when making them. There are hundreds more that didn’t make the cut, usually because of the failure of the latter (my intention to continue on).
Computer heartbreaks aside, this song is pretty special. Along with “Rasta Breakfast“, it’s one of the only songs I’ve ever done with a horn section, although a synthetic one. Seasoned listeners on this site should notice a fairly drastic difference between this and much of my other work. However, it draws from an often dormant, but long-nurtured love I have for hip-hop.
Edit 04/06/19: “Imagine” is now a part of the METAPHYSICS EP, available wherever you enjoy music. You can listen to and download it from Bandcamp using the player below.
