Here is a new song from Robert and myself. The song originated from my Instrumental Turn It Up.

On a shuttle to the nearest exoplanet, earth has disappeared from view. How does a colonist who will never see either the old or new worlds again spend their time? VR travelling through earth, nature`s subtle colours look ever more lovely.

Viridian

Lyrics:
Viridian

I`m tired of silence
Ai tyrants
autonomous food
comes from a tube

the earth went dark
on our Interstellar Ark
cargo of hope
so heavy I scope

on the Atlas Visor
are there survivors
it seems so real
remember to feel

at furthest north on Virtual Earth
the compass needle spins
round a fallen world that might have been
my viridian

propulsion gulfs the nuclear pulse
tune my string to the hum and sing
sing to empty heavens
my oh my viridian
in blues and greens let my dreams come

the pixels fade
hard truths I evade
Proxima B
I`ll never see

from Paris to Rome
far as my mind can go
still hold dear
a bluegreen sphere

at furthest north on Virtual Earth
the compass needle spins
round a fallen world that might have been
my viridian

propulsion gulfs the nuclear pulse
tune my string to the hum and sing
sing to empty heavens
my oh my viridian
in blues and greens let my dreams come

Soundcloud is doing laps and the tune doesn't arrive. Bummer.

Ah, I returned and it's running as it should.
The intro guitar tone is a good match for the sitar - or visa versa though the scale sounds a little more S.E.Asian.
The lead from 3.55 seems slightly out of synch but the switch to sitar leaves that as insignificant.
I suspect some lyrics are missing & a possible typo at grope.
The tabla as the propulsion device works really well.
Good stuff.

Had a listen over on FB a while back while I was having my first coffee of the morning wink

Cool song, nice arrangement, good guitar work (love that repeating melodic theme!), excellent vocal.

Great stuff Robert and Scott, you two always come up with interesting music and this is no exception.

Scott and Robert

Cool concept tune! Love that far east vibe floating along with the track! I think this is probably my favorite of all your collab songs! Roberts vocals are perfect for this tune! Scott, that clean sound on the guitar really suits this one well! Sad that SoundCloud wouldn't let me leave a comment due to technical issues! Just an enjoyable listen!

Thanks, Torrey

Robert's vocal work perfectly.
Good mix.

Thanks Dave . Really glad you liked the song. Was really happy to have Robert turn on off my instrumental into this very cool song.

Neat collaboration. East meets the West. Cool instrumental choices.
Scotts guitar a perfect fit. Lyrics are great, so are the vocals, but I do wish they (vocals) would be a little more upfront. Listens well. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Torrey for checking out the song. Robert made some changes to the original track and gave the song this east-west feel. Really glad you were able to get Soundcloud to work and also glad you liked it.

Huh, haven't heard the word viridian since art classes at school. Back then I was also reading a lot of science fiction. Possibly Robert was too. Evocative and intriguing lyrics as always. Sitar is a nice touch. Vocals and guitar good as always. I like it.

Leon

In some of the native "Eskimo" languages there is something like 39 different words for the word white. Viridian is such a beautiful color, it's a shame to just call it green. Man, I love this song and the fact that you and Robert are once again bringing up the spirit level. I dig the sitar, but, man, your guitar soars and steals the show. This song is out of this world. Robert your singing is superb. What a wonderful sound. What a good team.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks so much Floyd for checking out the song. Was a real treat for me for Robert to convert this into a song with lyric and vocal. Really glad you like the song.

As Scott said:"Robert made some changes to the original track and gave the song this east-west feel"- Scott`s original Stones style instrumental was recent enough and strong enough I made a conscious effort to go in another direction while keeping the guitar melody unchanged.
I`d already written lyrics around the colours-from-space-theme after seeing "Viridian" on a business sign and realizing I had no idea what it meant.

Thanks to all for listens and comments!

That east meets west is a great concept that you all mixed to perfection

Super guitar leads and vocals

Great use of that sitar

Excellent drums

Two thumbs up

This is more than superb. This is, dare I say it, extraordinary. Made me sit up from the first few notes. A beautiful, relevant message, too. Robert's voice is SO sensitive - one of my absolute favourite voices on here. Scott's accompaniment playing is beautiful and unobtrusive, understated, but quietly beautiful, also. The whole song is so beautifully hypnotic, atmospheric, yet direct, sensitive and also relevant, all at the same time. What an achievement.

One of the most beautiful songs to grace this site in ages - and, since the standard on here is always so blooming high, this is quite the compliment, from me. Sincerest congratulations, glad to see you both back on here and working together again. More, please.
