Waking the Witch
(by Franck Marchand)
Audience Count: 6,760
"Waking the witch" has been created as an attempt to "touch a nerve" in our audience, an attempt to have them switch to a higher level of consciousness... "waking the witch" in them. The song is made of two parts: an introduction, rather melodic and meditative, and a chant, rather rough (harmonically speaking) and sonically powerful, tribal-like. A "false ending" middle part prepares the listener for the chant.
The first time we really played and singed this song, we felt shivers along our spines... and a flow of positive energy.
We hope you will enjoy the song :-)
Recorded: made in Soysoy home studio, Brussels, Belgium
Guests/Players: Cecile - guitars, vocals, keys / Franck - bass, programming, keys. No guests on this song, though we use to have guests playing mandolin and bouzouki on some other Soysoy songs.
Technical Notes: This song has been recorded and mixed in our home VST studio in Brussels, Belgium, in spring 2001. It appears on the Soysoy album "Six teaspoons of eiran cari". We used a drum machine on this recording to create a "monolithic" feeling to the rythm section.
Artist Profile: Soysoy is a pop/rock band from Belgium, founded in 2000 by bass player/singer Franck Marchand and guitarist/singer Cecile Gonay.
Soysoy is not really a pagan band, though its two founder members are fond of celtic, druidic, pagan and witchcraft traditions. Soysoy makes some pagan songs among its pop/rock songs. We've been influenced in these songs, in our esoteric approach to their musical contents, mainly by Dead Can Dance but also by eastern europe and finnish/finno-ugric music. Sometimes we also use a rethotical approach to composition (musical rethorics from the pre-baroque western music).
