My wife is a great collaborator, writer, wordsmith and songwriter. This was a quick concept piece just to get the ball rolling for our joint-venture "Brimstone's Crematorium". I used Ableton Live to split up the recording and layer atmospherics underneath. The video is a spooky candle holder made to look like an old-time rotating cylindrical mechanical stroboscope.


Lyrics to "He Leaves Roses":

The man of my dreams,
rides a dark horse,
across barren fields,
under a blackened sky.

He leaves roses,
on my grave.
They smell so sweet,
even through layers of dirt.

I know he's there,
standing above me,
with the moon at his back,
and shadow across his face.
