Man Made Monster
Aaaaaaah!!! (actually done on synth :) )
This is a song for Halloween. My first collaboration with my son (13 - he did the wind and thunder) which makes me proud as punch! Trying to capture a handful of moods - scary, electrifying, awe, out-of-control and a little bent, pathos, loneliness, lamenting, triumphant - yes the monster wins in this one! :)
Always a big fan of Frankenstein, especially as portrayed by Boris Karloff in the old Universal films of the 30s. A hulking, yet somewhat tender monster born from a twist in science, that wants to do right - if only he could contain his rage and figure out what right really was.
