MARS Release 2 - November 15, 2003
MARS EP1 - dew - Companion to Minds 1-14

Song Info:
not Today -the first song made for dew specifically, it was too long to fit onto Minds 1-14
safecore -originally a song file I kept invidual beat samples I made in, then I mixed the song
W1 -the first midi song Emperor MAR ever wrote, the 2nd was 1 from Piemerican Disc in 2002. W1 was mixed & reversed from its original form to merit its release
Melt -siren sampled used in this song is provied with Juke Mp3 although the program was not used in the making of dew
vast -I've forgotten exactally how I made this one. I think other songs are reversed on it & sped up 3x.
shoc hoc -a part of the song SHOCKly from Minds 1-14 was used in this song as well as the tune of Ancient Sea slightly altered
dew -title track that I forced to be the closer although it's shorter than Melt

Additional Information:
I originally wanted to call this Ep do or doo but that reminded me of poo so I went with the spelling dew & found some dew covered leaves as cover art.
dew was made immediately after all the tracks from Minds 1-14 were recorded except Wk p which although already written wasn't dedicated to digitalness until after dew was fully recorded
All songs on dew except Melt were recorded & mixed on November 2, 2003; Melt recorded November 4, 2003
W1 written July 25, 2002; safecore written April 5, 2003

Artwork made November 2, 2003 - Original photo not by Piemerica


My feet are soaked in dew. My legs are soaking it in. Now my legs won't bend. It's like I'm moving without motion. When I live this evening, I won't lose the feeling of missing you.  ~dew

NINE, the song was to be on A Common Registration of Pieces sewn to part as the third album of what would be a triple album on 1 CD but it was far too long so rather than having an album with 1 song or 2 songs (NINE & ) additional songs were recorded for the album the same day.

Lyrics on which are from an old song called Heart written on August 25, 2001
