Bark Psychosis: Rose

This one was a bit of a challenge as I found myself overcome with emotion which led to me thinking more as I was trying to not let that affect the writing too much which wasn’t necessarily the best approach.
Anyway, some of that seeped through and I think that’s a good thing. I think I also did a good job of covering the song, though I missed out on a fair bit.

Bark Psychosis’ “Rose” is from Codename: Dustsucker.

I hope you enjoy.

Silence. Soon a vagueness. Is it a train running along a track? Is it something skipping and looping? It is a bare percussive rhythm and it sits in the distance. Soon and close by a stringed instrument takes care to place its sounds. It moves carefully and with space. Some other strings play for a moment and disappear and the main finds itself stuck in a sense.

A moody synth starts to draw out and stretch in a continuous form. The stringed instrument gradually gets quieter as the synth gets louder and a seeming sadness comes forward. A vocal appears briefly, almost as though it is flashing by and it occasionally repeats whilst more sounds find themselves attracted to the main body and something is revealing itself.

Keys briefly strike and the other sounds continue. Something else brief appears, like a fading memory and something percussive comes forward once more but it is distant. There almost is a farewell here and it is heavy and almost unbearable, but something seems to reach out, as though to help carry and lift. It doesn’t need to be alone.

Slowly the main body fades out and the vocals repeat. Without sound around them they are clearer, but they remain brief and all becomes silence once more, leaving lingering emotion as the song ends.
