“People Say What They Want to Hear (People Hear What They Want to Say) “
I depend on , You Depend on everyone That tries to make amend and then Around it goes and it never ends It never ends I may not know or may not want To really hear or think about What others say and really mean But times like these, after Thought and time, laughter I realize with open eyes People Say what they want to Hear People Hear what they want to Say People Say what they want to Hear People Hear what they want to Say
Notes on the DEMO Select/Option
The Demo is called Select/Option because when I was 16 I dislocated my wrist (X-Ray is the Album artwork) And I had to decide if I wanted to keep doing inline-skating or music and what means more to me. And I decided that my wrists and hands are more important for me and my music so from that day I focused on music which was my Option and Choice that I can never take back.
A demo of two songs related and stringed together like no other that I have made so far. A personal exploration of human and more so friendship interaction through wrong affections.
Notes for the listener for #1 People Say What They Want to Hear (People Hear What They Want to Say)
Clarity of words, thoughts and instances often comes when you go back to it and revisit the exact point of disorder in your mind. The vocals and other* instrument tracks in this piece are at a regular playing aspect while everything else is Reversed , Backwards and mixed and matched with the original recordings. This is trying to portray that sense of understanding when a memory is brought back up when the waters of stress have settled down and clear thought takes action.
from Select/Option *Demo*, 04 May 2014 A musical collage between two versions of the same song. "Wooden Flesh" was the original track which was remixed, edited and set to reverse to become this.
Instruments used : Concertina, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Fender tape echo, Acoustic Guitar used as percussive instrument, claps and slaps,
Notes for the listener for #2 WOODEN FLESH
Here we have an opposite effect of what the previous track was about. The vocals and other* instrument tracks are backwards in this piece, while all the other instruments are regular. There is no way to understand the lyrics but that's how it is sometimes when we cant even talk to anyone or understand what they're saying because we want to spit out our mind and personal belief before or right after them.

This is an alternate Version of "Wooden Flesh" which was the initial instigator piece that made me collage , remix and edit produce "People Say What They Want to Hear" .
