nico, my mother the maskmaker

00:0004:51

featuring caroline jesalva on violin!

---

standing eye to eye

with faces from my past,

i lift them off their hooks

knowing they're more than masks.

-

it seems obvious,

but difficult to do;

every mask you make

must be a part of you.

-

as i grew up

with her masks hanging everywhere,

they seemed to stare at me.

i barely minded them at all,

i never really noticed.

-

and when

i'm gone

they'll be right here,

watching my memories,

keeping them safe.

-

now that

i've gone

to see something new,

they'll be with me,

and so will she

(and so will she)

-

let's stop for a while.

can't you see? (can't you see)

it's my artistic style,

i'm not just lazy.

-

my mother,

the maskmaker.

remember

what you heard.

(thanks to heissen and my roommate @coolyjojo for the mixing help)

    this is one of the first audiotool tracks that almost made me cry

    that first half holy shit.

    the 2nd is so soothing.

    ofc the drums are also perfect.

    your brain is so big my brain cant handle its greatness.

    this is giving me such a specific feeling, like going through the middle of the mall, walking right pass the perfume area, where theres a lot of people handing out a lot of perfume... idk why but this song sounds like the smell of a lot of forced perfume

      this imagery is amazing! thank you for sharing :) it's interesting in how different in material it is from my conception of this song, but the overall arc is very similar. so cool
