SONG: “Regenerative Medicine”
SOURCE: Based on “Decellularized Mouse Heart Beats Again After Regenerating With Human Heart Precursor Cells,” Science Daily, 13 August 2013, as used in the post “A regenerated heartbeat.”
ABSTRACT: Maybe I should count this one as late, but I’m still awake and when I woke up, it was the 23rd, and there was a heck of a lot going on today, so this is today and not tomorrow and dammit, this thing is on time. (I’m still one penitential cover in the hole… I haven’t forgotten.) Anyway, this is a post-rock song, done under the influence of equal parts Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Gethan Dick (see the Honorary Troubadours list for more on her).
Hearts! That were so dead they weren’t even there – and look! BACK TO LIFE! That’s pretty whoooah.
There’s a double bass in here, and a didjeridu and hand cymbals (all Sound Fonts) and electric guitars (mostly live, though some pitch-shifted down) and harpsichords with distortion pedals. And our newest dog, Nicky, barking while I shout about decellularization. With another month, I’d have probably inserted more silences, or at least quiet bits to make the louder bits seem even louder. Still, though, it does what I want.
