Spent 2 days this week reading tons of material on Albert Hofmann and John Lilly - online biographies, websites and delved into the key written works of both scientists. The sweltering humidity and violent thunder-storms outside, combined with multiple accounts of LSD experimentation, sensory deprivation and pan-dimensional coincidence police, left me feeling like I'd just had a trip; exhausted but infinitely wiser.
God! Its so hard writing serious lyrics! Especially for the John Lilly song, for he is a silly man. My Windows Speech robot voice has gone mental - he sounds like he has a Mid-West accent - fitting, as Lily was born in St Paul Minnesota. This key is just out of my comfortable range. Having trouble not making this sound interesting (my vox - not the music.)
Talked Kelly into singing on Dan's Albert Hofmann track - originally wanted to do some Melodyne/Autotune stuff to make it jive with the (awesome) production of the backing track - but now I'm thinking it might be cooler to just let it flow, natural like.
