Monthly Music Challenge with Cosmic Bos

Feb 5, 2022

Ensemble Story - Cosmic Bos

Written and recorded by Andy and Nick Jackson

This song was one of the very first experiments in improv(squared) music creation. By improvising a 4 minute sound bed, Cosmic Bos layered on Guitar and Synth, followed by Bass and Vocal, and finally Backing Vocals, to create their 'Ensemble Story'.

Nick and Andy filmed themselves doing this, and that is what you are seeing in the video. Pure visual representation of music creation.

The lyrics were prewritten by Andy, and they go a little something like this:


The weekend brings new music
Old music repackaged
Sounds remixed and reimagined
Sampled sounds of someone banging

Sun will shine some of the time
Under stars from galactic prime
Transitory won’t need glory
Existence is an ensemble story

The moon shows on a cycle
Orbits to plot changes by
Dreams remixed and reimagined
Cold truth leaves us somewhat damaged

Sun won’t shine all of the time
Over these hazy hopes of mine
Mandatory loss of glory
Life is an ensemble story

Sit in meditative contemplation
Calmly size up our situation
For all is dust once said and done
Infinite shards of only one

Sun would shine all of the time
Resistance is our only crime
Momentary mandatory
Part of this ensemble story
