Obstructed View: Victory Is For Lovers
sentence fragments and the craft of conversation

These are demos of my current work.

My main reason for making these is to assess musical ideas, and what I have to work on. I might also have a friend or two who enjoys following their progress.

The song titles are links that will bring up the lyrics in a new tab or window, so clicking them does not stop the music that is playing.

The first date is when the lyrics were conceived, and the date in parentheses is when I recorded what you hear here.

Technically, a "demo" is either a rough idea for a song brought to band practice, or a home-made or low-budget recording submitted to a record company. These lie somewhere in between, since I have neither a band nor a record company.
