As promised, I’ve been working on a new song.  Buuuuuut……..this isn’t it.  There have been a few delays so in the meantime I’m posting a completely ridiculous and irreverent cover of allySpock's very lovely song Sea of Dirac.  SuperCos cover songs have been unplugged up until now, but I decided to go “plugged” seeing as the original is already unplugged and simply cannot be improved upon.

The song opens with a quote about Dirac by the famous Wolfgang Pauli of Pauli Exclusion Principle fame (remember your high school chemistry boys and girls?).

Finally, I had permission from allySpock to record this ridiculocrity.

This song was written by allySpock then arranged and performed by me.  Lyrics, as always, by cleanwhiteroom.  This can be downloaded (soon not yet) on the cleanwhiteroom website and my Bandcamp page.  Cover art is a “Stadium” of iron atoms adsorbed onto nickel with the resulting electron waves imaged by Scanning Tunneling Microscopy.  The closest we will ever come to visualizing a real Sea of Dirac.  Boom!  ::mic drop::

SEA OF DIRAC // This song is about a doomed relationship, and what happens when matter and antimatter collide. The Dirac equation (i.e. the Dirac Sea) expands upon the Shrodinger equation. It also relates quite nicely to when someone who is impossible to love and someone who is impossible to hate try to make something work, and instead end up just ruining everything.

For those of you playing at home, in an alternate universe, this is a “cover” of the song made famous by a band that doesn’t exist. In reality, CWR wrote the lyrics, I wrote the music (and a couple of phrases), and we had a grand time collaborating on this.

(art is by narcomanic, and I hope it’s okay that I’m using this! I didn’t ask, but I’m too obsessed with it to let it be. SO BEAUTIFUL, RIGHT?)

The last track of the last Supercos album for the last chapter of Designations.  How poignant is that?  This is the longest and most experimental of the Supercos tracks; think of it as a love letter to human brinksmanship.

Music written and performed by me.  Lyrics are an even 1/3 split between myself, cleanwhiteroom, and Wallace Stevens.  Additional vocals by allyspock.  Mastered by elementals.  Coverart by littletinheart.  As always, this song can be downloaded for free on my Bandcamp page (DON’T PAY FOR IT!!!) and streamed on the cleanwhiteroom website.

last night I got a tattoo with a line from a song by a band inspired by a story in which a large amount of the internal character conflict derives from ill-considered tattoo choices.

In all seriousness, I have loved this quote since the first time I heard it, and since I’m going to spend the rest of my life repeatedly testing things, it seemed appropriate, and more eloquent than “the scientific method rocks.” My shoulderblade is a little itchy today, but it barely hurt while it was happening, and I really love the way it turned out!!

The line was written by cleanwhiteroom

HELIOLATRY // This song is about navigating the peaks and valleys of your own mental landscape, and maybe getting a bit lost in the extremes. Music by me, lyrics by cleanwhiteroom, cello and banjo by Friend King, and mastered by the master herself, elementals. Cover art by narcomanic. Available to download from cleanwhiteroom.com.

To be perfectly honest, this song was the most difficult song I’ve ever done. While a part of me wants to feel a little bit guilty for all the torment CWR, elementals and I slogged through to get this beast finished, I feel like it’s worth it. So yeah. Heliolatry: more painful than flying headfirst into the sun, but totally worth it. Nice work, team!

(I kind of forgot how to English at the end sorry about that.)

(Supercos? More like Super cover material, am I right?)

I just love this song so much, I’m sorry.
