Port Moody

2007

Perpetual Emotion Machine

from Glory

Port Moody is the town in British Columbia where my daughter lived for a time after my separation from her mother. After spending some time there for a visit, this was the song I wrote when I got back. I thought it was a sleepy little town and it had a bit of some eerie vibes (but that was probably just me).

I would say that this is an extension (or natural progression) of the EtherReal tracks Peek and ‘Orrible It Is. The timing for this song is a little different — the phrasing switches from 6/4 to 4/4 and back several times. The original idea was based on a percussion loop I had in my head as an earworm and that sequence was 6 beats long.

There was an idea to do this as a second single from Glory. I completed a remix for it and had earmarked some other tracks to go on it, but It never came to pass.

This was the original remix I did for the withdrawn Port Moody single. The source file was lost before I was able to complete the mix, but this is the original drop.
