"Music is what happens between the Notes..."

I woke up on the floor of the studio; groggily I checked my watch. Seven am. Why on earth was I here? I was still wearing head phones. Past events slowly started bubbling to the surface of my memory; it was all starting to come back to me now--I had literally mixed until I had dropped; the night went on almost a full day. Time really has no meaning in the studio, unless you talk about musical time.

I had problems that nightâtechie stuff, minutia. Not artistic problems. File formats; conversions. It seems some nights the electrons dance, and others itâs nuclear fission. I remember being very proud of the final resultâI wondered how it would sound RIGHT NOW. Well it just had to sound good thatâs all there is too it.

I break the rules of mixing, using phones. All the pros will tell you that itâs a definite no no. Bull. Listen to the albumâyou be the judge.

After the mix Iâll throw it on some speakers and give it a whirl. When you listen to gman music you are listening to a headphone mix. I break a lot of rules in the studio, canât tell you why other than I do things by the way they feel. I suppose I have a smidgeon of radical resistance left over from the â70âs.

I played the song back. âPurple smoky starlight fills the nightâ¦â. Centrifunkal forceâtrack number two. I listened for two thingsâbalance and clarity. It was sounding so good. I wanted a full acoustic guitar sound in this one, and an almost live feel to it. The song is about this guy who is alienated in this city of 5 million people. He seeks comfort in a gentlemanâs club where he is smitten by a dancer. He likens her to a butterfly and in his mind urges her to âfly away; donât look down, at us poor souls anchored to the ground.â

Centrifunkal Force

Purple smoky starlight fills the night
Seedy men with watered whiskey wait in line.
Thereâs a girl who drifts ân dances,
rides a pole, she makes advances
Dances round and round and round again.

Mojo bag on a string hanging from my heart.
Laying low in the shadows, I'm playinâ it smart.
Flashing neon runway, she takes off on her soiree.
Drunk on the skin of her smooth bourbon skin.

Why am I so alone?
Five million people call this city their home.
Desperate people disconnected, disengaged, and dejected
seek secrets of the night.

Round ân round she goes
Where she stops no-one knows.
I canât get off, canât stay the course.
She's spinning round, without remorse
Caught in her Centrifunkal Force

Fly away Butterfly fly-fly so high.
Spread your wings please take to the sky.
Donât look back, donât look down, upon us poor souls anchored to the ground.
Fly away Butterfly fly-fly away

It was time for breakfast. I hastily burned a quick-n-dirty copy of the album for the car; the car is my final playback chamber. If it sounds good in the carâitâs as they say âa printâ. As I cruised on my mind drifted into thoughts and feelings about the making of G-force, the writing of the pieces and the performance of the album. I thought about Barker.

Bob Barker is a great friend of mine who had inspired several of the songs on the album. He took me on research assignment for Centrifunkal Force, and inspired the premise for Miracle on Fourth Street.
