Consciousness and society

Won't go into too much detail here in the introductory post (I'd rather see where it goes after some responses).

As usual, great job Myers.

Really like the switch to muffled voicings at about 1:25 and 2:28 - how do you get that effect by the way? Never mind - probably just a filter or something.

True. The rhyme is definitely cheap, but those lines fall on an emphasis point in the song and it kind of lessens the cheapness due to phonetic reiteration. I'm tempted to post a recording to show...

Thanks for commenting anna.



I think you're probably right. In addition to that, the dialogue of Amar at the start is too much force-feeding of the plotline. It's not natural at all, so I'll...
