about

Daniel Berkman wrote the music to this track as a solo cello piece for Song-A-Day 2013. I first listened to it while driving home from a party at my friend Rod Taylor's late at night, along the winding roads from Stanford to Oakland, looking at the moon...the imagery in the first half of this song was all right there before (and behind) me. I got home at 3am and stayed up way past dawn writing and recording the vocals.

The time signature of the piece is very fluid, and it took awhile to lock into where to come in on each verse. I tried counting at first but had to throw that idea out the window and just feel it. Which is kinda what it's all about...

P.S. don't worry, mom, I didn't close my eyes while driving...for too long...

lyrics

honeysuckle moon
half-closed buddhas eye
gaze down
while cellos lament
slowly pull
cirrus streaks
across inky sky

honeysuckle moon
half-closed buddhas eye
gaze down
on souls cast adrift
through doldrums
waiting for wind

can't stand standing still
give me endless open road
headlights creep up from behind
and surround
til i drown in light
bright enough to blind
so i close my eyes
let go of the wheel
trusting in
what's pulling in me

trust in what's pulling me

you say let go i let go
hold on i hold on
curtains rise
i fly
by a string suspended
from heart to hand
live only for the dancing

about

Artemis San Francisco

Spectral keyboard washes and sinuous dance beats set up a feeling of warm alienation while Artemis’s voice heats things further. Over the thump and shimmer, she croons with detached fervor, the music dissolving in a storm of pixie-dust disco until a rude riot of effects snaps the tether and she vanishes. ... more
