Never Thought To Stop And Look Down

Posted by Scott

I place songs into two categories: those that have the power to change my state of mind and those that don’t. This song falls squarely in the former, and within that category there are several subsets. I would have to say this song fits into a very rare space for me, there are lots of songs that make me feel excited, melancholy, nostalgic, etc.. But this is something entirely different and I love that. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Also, the cover reminds me of The Impossible Art of Li Wei, so it’s just that much more awesome. It actually reminds me of someone else’s work too, but the name escapes me right now, anyone know who I am talking about?

Just a comment because I know Jakub is posting here. I assume this is him, but it is hard to tell. Am I missing something?

Thanks for the song.

this one wasn’t by jakub, his are tagged with “by Jakub”. I will fix the system so it lists which author posted it now that it’s more than just me.

“place songs into two categories: those that have the power to change my state of mind and those that don’t.”

I can really relate to that, I find, I have pretty much the exactly the same outlook on music and other media. Except I normally call the former “experiences”. I find this particularly true with video games, ones that immerse and envelope me with their atmosphere, those are the ones I’ll remember years to come.

It’s actually a fascinating topic to me because I think there’s a lot more to it. There are people out their who live in their own “universe” so to speak, and everything they do reflects that universe. It’s these people that, I find, often make the most emotionally moving material.

I have only found a couple and that’s why I dig your music, you’re one of them.

Yeah, Yves Klein’s “Leap Into The Void” is definitely the precedent for this one. So is this a case great art stealing or average art borrowing? ;-)

oooh [i]THAT[/i] question…. i am such a stooge on this yet i totally understand the right for creativity to grow from the inspiration of outside influences. i like how it gives us a linear historical perspective too – in art i mean. but intellectual copyright is something i stand by. i believe in the process and endproduct’s importance in of itself but i feel everything should be stamped “…after so-and-so”. and besides it often makes it even more interesting to know why and hell come on, why not share??? (citing sources of course!)

Really, what a nice song. Perfect work on synthetizers, very melodic. Thanks, scott.
