(maybe this continues the e-cd…. ‘in times of war’)
‘improv’ done on drums and e-drums. (drums, e-drums, efx ~4 min)
i guess i fall into this ‘crazy solo drummers club’ of weird noise drummers. some of the more famous drummers in this club have names like hayward, yoshida, even walter. i’m not in their league- shit i’d barely make cabin boy. but every so often i get into this sort of thing- what i like about this piece is the crying sounds near the end (ring mod) – it was pretty much what i was feeling.
‘dance of the charismatic narcissists’ (keys. an improvised tune ~ 2 min)
there’s always some of these insects around but war brings them out like a honey drenched venus fly strip. who can believe that they are all right…. when they are all wrong? what a circus!
‘enough’ (keys. another improvised tune. ~2 1/2 min)
enough of this, enough of that. there’s still too much pain in the world… and i still have my tension headache.
lastly ‘atzeret/ nigun’ (keys ~12 min)
free-er versions of some new tunes i’m working on. just letting the keyboard wash the pain away- for a short while.
next week contains rosh chodesh av- beginning of the 9 days (jewish morning period from 1 – 9 av). please purge all sinat chinam (free hatred) from your hearts – whether it’s aimed at your own people- who are your brothers- or whether it’s aimed at someone else’s. it would make the world a better place.
