We’re Almost There
This is a clockwork remix visionary painter Jim Girouard’s “We’re Almost There,” further transmogrified by the celebrated poet Gary Barwin. The original song features the line, “There’s a light in the church up the road ahead, in a place where the living meet the dead.” Before the invention of MIDI, programmed music required meticulously timed Grandfather clocks, and every performance ticked at 60 bpm. In the tradition of the original “old school,” this clockwork remix features vintage timepieces. You can hear the original vocal/guitar version online.
Composer Jim Girouard is a visionary painter, musician, and divination innovator. Remixer Gary Barwin has a PhD. in music composition and is a celebrated poet and novelist. Remixer Craig Conley is an eccentric scholar, esotericist, and author of dozens of strange and unusual references.
