A Love Song For George Rekers

May 15, 2010 3:01 PM

George Rekers, one of the founders of Focus on the Family, needs love and self acceptance. This love song is made with his own words, as recorded by a journalist shortly after he was seen with an escort at an airport (along with some simple synthesizers).

Synths were constructed using the Supercollider audio programming language, and controlled wit ha Korg NanoKontrol. Recorded, edited, and polished in Ardour.

Even with the edits, the panic is palpable, a living thing. I can taste his distress, and it is sweet.

I shouldn't have read The Dark Knight Returns before I listened to this.

Yeah, this really works. It's so painful to her him sputter. You just want him to stop talking. I like how halfway through all of the sudden it feels like you are in his skull watching himself deny everything in slow motion.
