Demonic Sweaters - Jettison





Demonic Sweaters - Jettison (see below for lyrics). I composed the song 100% in Ableton Live Into even the vocals. For the vocal effect I used the TAL free vocoder and played the midi parts along to when I was singing. The backing vocals are the Alter Ego free singing synthesis plugin from Plogue. I mastered the audio with Audacity.



For the video I wanted something that represented alien landscapes but also something in 3D. Digging through archive.org, I came across this incredible footage by Don Whitaker, Attribution 3.0 Unported (CC BY 3.0). I took a few of Don's videos and created some footage of my own using the media generators in Sony Movie Studio Platimun, then edited them  together to sync to the music.

Lyrics:



lightning

so pretty

the green glow

of the sky

is how

I see

the world

right now



transport

the time-line

or maybe

the space-time

I've gone

somewhere

other

than here



jettison jettison jettison



strange birds

flying

mountains

as far as I can see

the sun

is two

the moon

is two



the water

is glistening

and sparkling

like champagne

and slow

the time

so slow

the time
