Lately I’ve been getting back into playing instruments and writing songs. Due to the virus that has been affecting us all, I’ve had ample opportunity to delve back in and shake off some of the rust that’s built up over time. I’m thinking about putting some of these up now and then, but I’ll see how far I get with these ideas. These are not produced songs, merely poorly recorded, spur of the moment demos that were caught using my phone. They are not the highest quality and I sound tired in some of them because a lot of my ideas come at night, but I’m happy with them for what they are.
This first demo is for a song with the working title “Adelaide.” While writing I started considering working on some sort of concept record, one in which a serial killer, who abducts women, is pursued by a detective/agent looking to bring him to justice. This album would have songs exploring the narrative from the perspective of The Killer, The Victim, and The Detective, describing their various mindsets and experiences.
“Adelaide” details the first day of The Victim’s abduction, narrated by The Killer. I wanted to provide insight to the listener on how this man thinks and approaches his abductees. I also wanted to show how he dehumanizes them and enjoys this feeling of dominance and superiority he gains through these horrendous actions. It also touches on his methodology and location.
If you like this demo and would be interested in more, please like or comment.
