I’m obviously still on my ‘Einstein’ kick. He was definitely a remarkable man and an incredible violinist to boot. To be able to mathematically map out the Universe is pretty sharp. He was a nice guy with a very funny dry wit (when he wasn’t working).
Anyway, that’s probably where this song got it’s start. I sat down in front of the computer after a big day recycling down the mountain and once again something popped out (musically that is). Thanks for listening!!
Success!! I’ve now finished all of the rhythm guitar for the Chris Cates & the Master Plan “Follow the Feeling” album. It’s been tough working it in with the song a day thing and my other projects. It’s kind of wierd spending lots of time on a song, like I need to do with the Master Plan album, after doing these one a days as fast as I can. That album is for the big market so it has to be perfect. These songs can be a little loose and can also be any sound I want.
I’ve fallen in love with this way of writing and recording because I’m not held back by normal conventions.
Anyway, “Geometrically in Perfect Touch” let me play a little bit of the Euro beat on the drums and it turned out to sound a little bit like The Sea and Cake, a band I really like a lot. The words build on a parallel between love and mathematics (a subject through school I didn’t pay much attention to).
This song is one of my favorites that I’ve ever done. Thanks for listening!!
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
