patterns and prayers
wirrow Released Jul 08, 2010

i wanted this to sound church-like..  

lately i've have had this poem in my head constantly.. especially the last part.

not very happy with vocals so if anyone wants to sing it i will upload the instrumental.


repeating rhythms,

tracing traditions

stealing scales

cutting chords and making history of prehistoric patterns

coming back up and out of our shells,

from our hearts,

whose every beat is a prayer

there's something I love,

i swear something's there.

a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer a pattern, a prayer

    This harmony is amazing, I took the liberty to write this lyrics for it, I hope you like it

    Feel the heat
    in the night

    & it comes
    all around

    On the streets
    all in white

    feel the drums
    hit the ground

    all the places
    you will go

    feel the heat
    feel the rush

    our only limit is the sky
    but in my dreams
    you never die

    feel the heat
    feel the rush
    one way street
    this is us

    Went back & read the poem, and I like your selection of it, almost a new, simpler poem. (It reminds me of settings of the Requiem Mass - most composers select portions of the text rather than feeling the need to set it all. Fauré in particular wanted to compose a peaceful, restful Requiem full of assurance, and he selected text accordingly.) You've boiled the poem down to its beautiful essence & set it to music quite brilliantly. I love the contrast between the sedate, almost chant-like music breathing its (patterns &) prayer(s), and the "preacher" voice set within that broader stillness, the way everything we say about God/the divine/ultimacy is itself set within, encompassed by, transcended by, and made contingent on the greater Reality we can only point to.
    In other words, your song is amazing! :D

    Hey Wirrow... can you upload the instrumental/back-up vocal of this? I think the vocals are lovely, but I'll give them a try.

    Just an idea, That I probably wont be able to pull off myself, but if anyone has access to a chamber choir it would sound really nice with the music.
