Creative Process – “Skype”

white-gold CREATIVE PROCESS

”  S  K  Y  P  E  “

I N S P I R A T I O N

It was a late night in September. Anyone in a long distance relationship knows all too well the ingenuity of Skype. Our time was around 9:30pm each night, give or take. I was in a particularly silly mood, watching the screen glow with her face giving me one of the “you play too much” expressions. I picked up my guitar and began to strum some simple chords. With a pretty stupid grin on my face I began to sing some lyrics over the strums:

You are/so sleep/in your/eyes

you are/so sweet/in your lips

you are/ so down/in your bed

you are/so stuck/in my head

…I can’t forget/your face/your face

I can’t forget/this place/this place

P R O C E S S

Capturing what it felt like to feel very close but be very far was my first objective. The chords alternate major and minor to evoke that feeling. Broken and short phrasing lends itself to the emotion of hoping to explain or express something, but feeling limited in that expression by sometimes faulty technology. Reverberating vocals and open spaces aid in the sonic imagery of a Skype conversation…not in a literal sense, but more so the unspoken longings of two people who love each other, hundreds of miles away, but 24 inches close.
