Vita Evanui Amo Ferrum (also from Umbra)

'Vita Evanui Amo Ferrum' - Swimmingpool The Band

In ''Vita Evanui Amo Ferrum' I continue in a similar vein to the previous three songs posted. Here, crackling and disconnected whisper through blankets of keys and faint melodies. Even farther in the background are heavily processed guitars and a return to (albeit almost unrecognizably so) the violin.

The voices here are similarly found sounds, many of which were inaudible even before they were processed.

The piano part was initially more cohesive. In light of the feedback and chopped voices, I decided to break up the once steady piano part (much to my liking).

I'm happy with the end results and I really hope you like it too. The Title is latin for "Life Disappears Like Horses", a play on the title of the poem that inspired my long work of diary-esq songs (Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over The Hills by Charles Bukowski).
