##### A Pay What You Can recording: type 0 in the prompt box to download my life's work for free #####

hey everyone... i made some music inspired by life. i started working on songs that people should listen to hungover, but it led to an opus about the morning.

my grandfather died in january 2012 and i participated in the quebec student strike in early 2012 — which was working towards free education for everyone in quebec.

these tunes came out naturally after a week or so of ben and i playing out our feelings together. it was a gorgeous march morning on the weekend, the brightest and hottest yet that year. we set up a microphone while two of our most respected and loved friends read and sat in as audience, helping develop the scene and the vibe.

in april cops broke my arm, so this couldn't be finished sooner. all overdubs to the BE the Sun Beds takes were done in my home with a tiny, but very sensitive microphone. almost all drums were played with chopsticks. thank you to tim his fantastic violin takes.

free download. free as in air and water.

thanks to all the material and spiritual conditions necessary for this to come about.

if you enjoy this, please share.

With Love and Solidarity,

Track Name: Waking Up
out, the sun
it goes back behind the clouds
and I wonder where it going to
if it not coming out

so I wait too long
for the rain to pass
and I wait too long
so I mobilize my ass

so I do anything
to make the sun come out
not just march around and shout
I want to change the way
the sun works
I want to change
how I get to work

I'm gonna change the things
yeah at school
do the things I shouldn't do
and i'll get out like I need to.. i?
ooohh we need to
change the sun.

need my coffee sometime

sometimes I get my way
sometimes I try
the grind
reminds me of life

and when I wake up
when I take up -yeah
I
wake up
my
coffee
cup

sometimes cold in the shade
so I try to walk
on the sunny way

but in my eye
they get shined
by the light
my eyes
and I wait for the moment
to cut
don't know why
seems 'bout the round

Track Name: Staircase
walk down the staircase
magnetic pull
down to the other place
I dare not go

walk down the staircase
magnetic pull
down to the other place
I dare not go

pull down the staircase
magnetic pull
down to the other place
I dare not go.
