ICS 2015​.​11​.​29

by Amy Denio / Spoot Music

Thanksgiving 02:56
Gather around a table laid bare Turkeys were gobbling Now they don't care for the Day of Mourning New era warning Many are folorning on the Day of Mourning
Mayflower 03:23
Incessant creaking timber the monotonous slap of the waves no seagulls for days as the scurvy blurs our ways of knowing Seasick, not a lick of luck as the familiar shores slip sight unseen away Behold new turf, new planet Earf new land new lines new hands new lies we come as false friends eyeing your turkey hens and the sweet strong legs of your lasses we'll cover gladly with molasses our hands will creep, we'll make some passes your turkey hens with the legs
Boat People 04:02
Boat people from Vietnam know the unknown, settled the unsettled Boat people from Vietnam Found their land legs after living through living hell Boat people had hope people would never repeat their feat, that history would delete the strife the knife the dimming of life The sunken boats the drowning the cold shoulder of superpower frowning simply super! Boat people from Vietnam are mobilizing again they hope to help their desperate floating brethren


ICS is short for Immersion Composition Society, in which music creators attempt to write as many songs as possible in the course of one day, then share the results with similarly-engaged creators at the end of the day.

Today's work was inspired by the celebration of Thanksgiving in America, called Day of Mourning by indigenous people. Created in homage to the millions of displaced people from Syria (etc.) and the crazy course of history. May all peoples have hearth and home, and food on the table.
