In 2007, I wrote lyrics to a set of beautiful songs written by Marco Spatuzzi for the group Memoria. The songs were inspired by the movie Blade Runner. Blade Runner is one of the most popular and influential science-fiction films of all time - and it has become an enduring cult classic favorite. It was directed by Ridley Scott and stars Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, and Sean Young. The screenplay, written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples, is loosely based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.
The movie overwhelms the senses and preys on our morals, revealing fundamental truths and insight about human nature - What does it mean to be human? What role does empathy play? What do I know about myself? What is my true nature?
With our music and lyrics, we tried capturing those themes found throughout the film.
The song, "My Mind Lies", is the last song of the set and addresses one of the film's themes, memories.
I've been thinking about this project lately and thought I'd share this song with my readers. :)
I'd really like to finish the mixing of these beautifully crafted songs one day. (Just need to find a competent, affordable local studio.)
