Central Casting

The incident described in this song is based on my reaction to a fellow I saw as I was leaving Ulibarri's Barber Shop in downtown Flagstaff one day in the summer of 2009.

The idea sat in my "Music Sketches" folder until this month, when I filled in the rest of the lyrics as quickly as I'd allow myself.

This song was my contribution to the emuFest on electronic instruments only. No guitars allowed.

Very cool Ted! Kind of reminds me of the 80's. Some of the sounds are really cool and it all works in a groovy retro way.

Did you double your voice or is that an effect. The line, "our eyes meet" is pretty clever musically.

I'll have to try the same exercise when I get my stuff together.

The vocal effect is a Digitech Vocalist Live 2 which I had set to add a unison voice (like doubling, I guess) and a higher harmony.
