about

Recorded August 17th, 2014 at Denny Park in Seattle, WA for the first annual run of Pianos in the Parks, a pilot project created by the Seattle Parks Dept. & various partners.

20 pianos were placed outside at 20 local parks for one month, open to the public for all to play. Artists were commissioned to transform each into an individual work of art. The results were some mind-blowingly cool pianos that, after a four week run, were auctioned off to the public. To highlight this ingenious idea, KEXP asked Seattle musicians to perform and filmed the action.

Aqueduct chose Denny Park, in part because of the beautiful downtown setting and also for the awesome artwork (CJ Sawyer) particular to this piano. Sunday, August 17th was a glorious sunny day which made for a fun crowd and a few uninvited guests (seaplanes, sirens & seagulls). Due to the close proximity to Lake Union & Downtown Seattle, the park was full of great ambient sounds that were captured in the recording.

Track Name: Legend of Kage
LEGEND of KAGE

You’ve got me running wild in a cage
One look at your face and I can tell it’s still the same
And it’s been a while since I ate

You said I was wrong
Turns out not for long
They told me to beware
I said I don’t care

One look at my eye and you’ll know
That I’m burnin red as I am going for the throat
I think my head could explode

Caus’ all you wanna do is hold me back
And all I wanna do to you’s attack
I’d probably be fine if left alone

One look at my eye and you’ll know
That I’m burnin red as I am going for the throat
I think my head could explode

You said I was wrong
Turns out not for long
They told me to beware
I said I don’t care

Caus’ all you wanna do is hold me back
And all I wanna do to you’s attack
I’d probably be fine if left alone

You’ve got me running wild in a cage
One look at your face and I can tell it’s still the same
And it’s been a while since I ate
Track Name: Five Star Day
FIVE STAR DAY

I don't believe in astrology but
you can read me my horoscope
I like to hear your voice
it doesn't mean that much to me
you see, surely you have to know
how much you mean to me
fearing my destiny it seems
I've shipwrecked myself
before I ever left to sea
hoping you'll rescue me from my
fill in the blank philosophy
whatever they may be
used to be magical until
she ran away and took with her
my five star day

I've been walking with a swag in my step
have a feeling that I just can't forget
feel like maybe I should pack up and go
the only question now is where I don't know
fell in love with the institution
lost respect for the whole industry
they will always leave you
down on your knees
only place I know that
I never want to be

Used to be magical until
she ran away and took with her my five star day
played like a sad guitar's refrain
beautiful melodies are orchestrated by my pain
used to be magical until
she ran away and took with her my five star day

I've been walking with a swag in my step
have a feeling that I just can't forget
feel like maybe I should pack up and go
the only question now is where I don't know
fell in love with the institution
lost respect for the whole industry
they will always leave you down on your knees
only place I know that I never want to be
Track Name: The Suggestion Box
Instead of beating me up
you should be giving me hope
Instead of bringing me down
you should be lifting me up
instead of starting a fire
you should be heating things up
I'd never leave you there
screaming for my love
I will never leave you
screaming for my love
Track Name: Just The Way I Are
It's easygoing sarcasm
Don't get me wrong girl
My heart is in the right place
But sometimes it's off course
This overwhelming feeling
Has taken over me again,
My love, don't get me

Wrong about the time
We took a walk,
We're holding hands, and I said
What if we got stuck
Like this forever
Wrong about the time
We took a swim
I turned to you and said
I'm drowning in
Your love, boy are you crazy
It's not the way I am,
It's just the way I are

But, darling if we stick together
And stumble onto buried treasure
Our hearts will soon
Become golden monuments
Of our devotion

Wrong about the time
We took a bike ride
Raced you to the westside
But you got pissed and left me
Wrong about the time
We took a hike,
I said get lost, you said
Okay again, I'm out of here
You're crazy boy
It's not the way I am,
It's just the way I are
Track Name: Hardcore Days & Softcore Nights
Hardcore Days & Softcore Nights

Don't ever ask me where I go
Last man who asked me had to go
Because if you start asking then I'll be hostile acting
Don't ever ask me where I go

Don't ever ask me where I'm from
In six states that's considered dumb
Because if you start asking, I'll pull this heat I'm packing
Don't ever ask me where I'm from

I've never been beaten, I won't stop competing
Don't ever ask me where I'm from
I get the red out when I take my lead out
Don't ever ask me where I'm from

I've never been beaten, I won't stop competing
Don't ever ask me where I'm from
I get the red out when I take my lead out
Don't ever ask me where I'm, don't ever ask me where I'm from

In six states that's considered dumb
Don't ever ask me where I go
Just thought I outta let you know
Because if you start asking then I'll be hostile acting
Track Name: Keep It Together
KEEP IT TOGETHER

I know it's none of my business,
But if in the end you get hurt
I'll feel responsible
I'm taking over your business,
Before you piss it away

You've been flying blind
People never change
Bitch don't even try
You've been flying blind,
You've got to keep it together

You say your wander is aimless
It's a wonder you've come so far
On beauty, luck and love
For a life filled with
So much emptiness
Once you get off the ground

You'll be flying blind
People never change
Bitch tell me you'll try
You'll be flying blind,
You've got to keep it together
Swear to me you won't fall apart

You're falling into your old ways
The harder habits to break
Will do you better
You're falling into your old ways,
Before you get off the ground

You'll be flying blind
People never change
Bitch tell me you'll try
You'll be flying blind,
You've got to keep it together
Before it all falls apart, again
Track Name: Heart reDesign
Heart reDesign

You can telephone all over the world
giving everything you've got to give up
for sure, that you've found the right girl
you can wonder why you make yourself sick
you can fight it but this feeling its starting to stick
well my heart is yours and always will be
though of my design I'm glad you picked me
we both came to this place independently
and to leave tonight we'll redesign our lives
so simply

Take me to a watery grave
never to be heard from again
well I swear that I'll still be there
I wish I could be better to you
I don't want to make you think that
my heart is untrue
well my heart is yours and always will be
though of my design I'm glad you picked me
we both came to this place individually
and to leave tonight we'll redesign our lives
so sweetly
Track Name: Growing Up With GNR
Growing Up With GNR

Whenever, whenever, whenever you fall apart
forget her, forget her, forget her
she broke your heart
whenever, whenever, whenever your wrong or right
forget her, forget her, forget her, she's torn apart

I've been walking these streets tonight
just trying to get it right, I've got to get it right
whenever you're home you're never really are
well I've been living in a fantasy
just trying to get it right, I've got to get it right
whenever you're lonely you are not alone

whenever, whenever, whenever you fall apart
forget her, forget her, forget her, she's torn aprt

O' baby you were looking foxy tonight
is it the way you walk or just the way you talk
you're playing the part
that's gonna break my heart
well girl there's something
about the way you act
you will be crushing my soul
and won't be paying me back
why can't you be the way you used to be
way back when...

I was only twelve, damning all to hell, I was feeling fine
Hearing Axl Rose, on the radio
singing sweet child of mine

whenever, whenever, whenever you fall apart
forget her, forget her, forget her she broke your heart

I was only twelve, damning all to hell, I was feeling fine alright
hearing Axl Rose, on the radio
singing sweet child of mine alright
welcome to the jungle
you're much too much to handle
I wish I weren't in love with you
hearing Axl Rose on the radio
remembering the good times with you

I've been living in a fantasy
Just trying to get it right, I've got to get it right
whenever you're lonely you are not alone
