lyrics

pedals, feedback, macintalk, vocoder, goldwave. adapted from Henry Scott-Holland's text "Death Is Nothing At All"

death is nothing at all
i have only slipped into the next room
i am i and you are you
whatever we were to each other, that we are still
call me by my old familiar name
speak to me in the easy way which you always used
put no difference in your tone,
wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together
play, smile, think of me, pray for me
let my name be ever the household word that it always was,
let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it
life means all that it ever meant
it is the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity
why should i be out of mind because i am out of sight
i am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
just around the corner
all is well.

about

HALLEY LABS Hamilton, Ontario

i'm emma.

i create the headphone music i want to hear. if you like interesting sonic spaces, textures, and coherence in chaos, i think you'll also like it.

HALLEY LABS is only one person (even if it might not immediately look that way) so it may take me a bit to return emails. thanks so much ♥
