The writing of Meteor
I'm in the middle of writing a song. Actually, I'm in the middle of writing three...but the new Alchemy Lane song that I'm working on has got space vibes.
Drawing on memories of Kielder Observatory skies, good times and Saturn's rings. An unbelieveable reality through a lens.
Drawing on memories of Australia, being in the bush, and seeing the Milky Way lit up like a motorway. The clearest skies I've ever seen.
Drawing on memories of standing in my back garden and seeing a shooting star.
I will sit with these memories for a while and no doubt some weird, warped words will start forming in the shape of lyrics.
Meanwhile, the guitars are out and I'm playing around with sound.
The start of the process.
