C.O.D.E. FILTERED THERIOT (Buratto/St. Regis/Catero/Levy)
It started with that anthemic wah-wah and freight train tremelo of Grecco's; solos and rhythm sugar came years later. The lyric and melody writing sessions with cool cat and co-designer of the Cadix Bank, Catero Colbert (no relation) fleshed-out the balance of the main tune. Live synth magic, my daughter Camille's first recording session, my son's Carlo and Salvi's essential commentary and merriment, a little riffin' 'n runnin', St. Regis chestnuts featuring Ellis Hall (How does he do that?), ol' school beats and EIII sweetening by (Black) Jack Levy, Baron von Münchhausen genius, missed deadlines and sleep seizures... paint the colors that follow.
- "Then sowing time was over, and he found himself with nothing to do. It was like coming dazed out of sleep, out of the warm, sunny valleys where people lived into a region where cold peaks of savage despair stood bleakly above the lost valleys, among black and savage stars." Faulkner, Flags in the Dust
C.O.D.E. 8: Cadix & Theriot patches, C.O.D.E.-filterboxed voices, vocoders, vocals (cheap mics and all), El Grecco guitars & their noises, synth drone pulses, crossmod and crushing quick auto-triggering input processing with its Revolution #9 style board fuzz; Hindi intro leads, pervasive polyphonics; intro kicks; leads 1st chorus (and elsewhere); locked-to-clock L.F.O. theatrics; many melodic and manly basses before ride section, including 2nd verse subs; potent Pulsar leads at end of said ride; "West Coast" basses in Cm (cf. totally unrelated ending sequence); descending peacefulness.
ATC-X QFS: that distorted party in the verses, single note pulsar leads in verses and more later on.
SE-1X: 909 kicks, worm leads, basses 2nd chorus, meaty slides in guitar breakdown/solo, big bouncin' bold Peter Cetera styled pick-rock-funk basses on ride, warm basses under yet warmer chords.
Grecco Buratto: Rock guitar heroics––thought we was 'posed to kick it my dude?
Catero Colbert: "So high we are flying."
Ellis Hall: "Few words... love light shines."
Jack Levy: Beats & Sound Design in C minor (Few Words) Tag.
Camille: Mmm ks, gorgeous choral harmony, Peaceful hymn solo at end.
Carlo: Spoken intro, laughter, "Stop... You can stop now."
Salvatore: "That's not Happening, "I'm Sparticus."
