lyrics

“First Transmission”
© 2010 C. Rose

we
who kneel at the edge of nowhere
opposite sides
the same great divide

pray
soon we will spark the contact
a future is near
waiting to hear what we've made
____________________

switch
one frequency for another
look to the sky
await the reply

sound
closing the space between us
i'm holding you tight
we're crossing the ocean tonight.
______________________

transmission
first transmission
it moves across the sea and air
it finds you there

transmision
first transmission
it's crossing over earth and sea
to you from me
_______________________

we
finally break the silence
something is there
a-wing is the prayer
________________________

transmission
first transmission
it moves across the sea and air
it finds you there


transmision
first transmission
it's crossing over earth and sea
to you from me
_________________________

once we were lost now we are found
[freed by sound]
________________________

transmission
first transmission
it moves across the sea and air
it finds you there

transmision
first transmission
it's crossing over earth and sea
to you from me (beautiful machine)

about

Maxwell's Complex Амхърст, Massachusetts

Electronic music progenerated from early 1980’s synth-pop examining the complexity of human communication; how we relate, connect, and manage the inevitable failures inherent in all fragile machinery.
