Changing Down – Kilauea Halema’uma’u Lava Lake

The changes to the erupting Kilauea volcano in 2018 are both unpredictable and full of color along with collapsing crater walls, explosions, earthquakes and lava fissures and flows. This song sings to all of that as well as some of its metaphors for all of us in life’s crazy adventures.

David Elias and Charlie Naztke created this composition at Slipperworld.net in La Honda, Calif. It is the work of the duo recording all tracks then mixed by Charlie and mastered by David. Hoy Hoy.

Changing Down – by David Elias

See my cup go flowing
See my cup go running over
See my cup go flowing down

See my colors changing
See my red go into white
See my colors changing down

More than this I can’t say how
Everything else changing
There’s still a light above your brow
Everything else changing down

See the rest I’m taking
Rest comes easy outside harm’s way
See the rest I’m taking down

See the walls they’re closing
Close to this I can’t say how
See the walls they’re closing down

More than this I can’t say how
Everything else changing
There’s still a light above your brow
Everything else changing down

This song comes from the “Illegal Copy #2” bootleg recorded live in the San Gregorio General Store in 2002 with The Great Unknown band. It is now being released as an MQA single on TIDAL and other lossless streaming sites supporting MQA. You can download the 16/44.1 MQA single master from bandcamp at:

"The Toll Road" from "Illegal Copy #2" MQA CD format 16/44.1
In my listening to MQA for the past couple years, I’ve found that the biggest gains in sound improvement actually come from regular CD resolution (16/44.1k) rather than hi-res. The improvement is overall more natural and real sounding, less edgy and compressed sounding. Logical justification for this may exist from the known fact that the brick wall filter applied to CDs at 20kHz is a very steep filter and therefore imparts the largest amount of pre-ringing echo in the resulting master (ie, the CD without MQA).
MQA essentially removes this ringing so the spatial orientation of the sound identified and located by our ears instrument by instrument is more realistic and less confusing to the brain. It sounds better because it’s easier to listen to.
That’s my take on it at least as well as my direct experience through comparisons over the past 2.5 years. (Note: DSD doesn’t start with this same problem so we are not comparing MQA to DSD here, just MQA PCM to non-MQA PCM.)
It is less confusing to the brain so it is more relaxing to listen to due to its more natural, less edgy/compressed sound. This is exactly what I hear with MQA on PCM masters, but more so on CD rather than say 24/96 or 24/192k masters where the filter without MQA is not so steep so the ringing is not as exaggerated and problematic to our hearing.
