Holding Up The Sky
(words & music by Hobbyhorse)

North South East and West
We're little men but we do our best
Holding Up The Sky

Clamped between Heaven and Hell
We hate our job but we do it well
Holding Up The Sky

In the dark where rubies ripen
And emeralds burst from the ancient seed
We stand upon our dusty treasures
And guard them from the hands
Of lust and greed

East West North and South
See the stars fall from our mouth
Holding Up The Sky

Holding Up The Sky
(by Hobbyhorse)

Audience Count: 4,657




The Story...

This is a song honoring the dwarves of Norse mythology. The dwarves may not be nice or pretty, but they are expertly skilled craftsmen . They make magical weapons and jewelry of the precious metals and stones that they fiercely guard. They live deep within the Earth, and are also guardians of the four directions: North South East and West. As I wrote this song, I heard them singing proudly as they stood at the four directions with their steady feet protecting the Earth, and their strong arms holding up the sky. - Annie

The arrangement features multiple electric guitars playing variations upon the basic riff. I actually tried to write the music similar to the way I would write for string quartet - baritone guitar playing cello parts, guitars playing viola and violin and electric mandolin playing the high violin part. Note that there is no drum set played on this piece. Rather, the percussion instruments were played and recorded individually. But the cumulative effect is similar to the way a drum set would sound. The orchestration starts strong and becomes more intimate during the bridge/interlude - almost as if a dwarf was sharing his secret with you. Then the guitars come back in at full force for the finale. - Phil

Recorded: Recorded March 2007 at Hobbyhorse Ranch
Guests/Players: Annie - vocals, tar and tambourine
Phil - guitars, bass, kalimba, cymbals and percussion

Technical Notes: Recorded by Phil at Hobbyhorse Ranch in Palo Alto, CA on a Yamaha AW2400, using a variety of mics and preamps of which the details are mostly forgotten. This particular arrangement features many electric guitar parts, a variety of percussion and no keyboards at all.
