“Give it on” is a song that changed over time, and through live shows mostly.
The song was frequently played with my band “Ninth”. It used to do well live, so it basically stayed with us, almost like a feeling, but changed drastically along the way.
The quiet parts, on this version, was more inspired by “contemporary” composers like John Tavener and Arvo Part etc, which I listened to at the time.
The song went through many different choruses, and quiet parts, even verses, beats, and chord progressions. Nothing is left of the original song that we originally composed.
I must also say that the setting for the song came around a time when I was trying to combine the “nerve” of contemporary music with punk/hardcore culture (which I suddenly found myself in, at the time)
Part of what fascinated me was the similarities these music cultures (sometimes) shared in raw (primal) expression.
To me they contain some very fundamental and important emotions. So I found this "merge" very powerful.
I wrote a bunch of songs through this fascination (still do) and some of them will be presented here later.
