stopgap... recent improvisations...














I was planning a special post of three very long seminal tracks - but they will have to wait as fatigue has flattened me over the weekend... here's a stopgap from the Whitedog camp, a long spacey improvisation using audio mulch linked to FL studio. The photograph was taken last year in New York... where I intended to be this week - but health and a looming house move have put the kybosh on that. September, maybe...

Spacey is the word - I would use interstellar analogy more often, if Pink Floyd hadn't rendered it (outside of Coltrane's late stuff) all but obsolete for expressionist music description.
Good trance -like use of sound and space - the way the rhythms move in and out.
I especially like the long section that comes in at about 10 minutes in - almost an orchestral sound., competing with the different planes of sound moving around it.

This is sandy landscape of sound. You have captured the feel of desert and sandstorm at the beginning. However, there is a brooding, atmospheric sound that comes in after that. Darkness against the light of the beginning. Scuttling creatures and marvellous landscapes. You use quite a lot of metallic sounds that are uplifting and frightening at the same time. A kind of alienating, yet engulfing feeling. Very strange and beautiful.

I've just got to the middle bit and it is very poignant. Lovely.
