‘years of silence’

tech note – i love elements of randomness – that being provided here by the arpeggiator on the 2’nd keyboard – sometimes i just hit a block of notes and let ‘er rip. the concept of the piece itself is the idea of taking years off of an interest (such as creative sound art).

pieces from the last couple days (still using ‘sound system number two’) –

‘el jefe’ -keyboard improv – this is dedicated to the one i call el jefe – the chief – king of the piano players. (and a damn good poet too.)

‘dirty blue gene (instumental)’ this is, of course a captain beefheart (don van vliet cover). there are several versions of this tune which he recorded throughout his career (including several which were never ‘officially released’) – instrumental ones, vocal ones, and also another tune (‘witch doctor’s life’) which was derived from the early instrumental versions. there’s even an early vocal version which connects the vocal and instrumental versions – which on first glance seem to be two different songs. i guess a person can go to youtube now and research this – it’s all out there. anyways my version is abstracted from several of these and then improvised on. i’d covered this previously a few months ago (https://soundcloud.com/zelwel/dirty-blue-gene-instrumental-beefheart-cover) and did this re-cover as a test to see if i could remember it. ended up with something entirely different.

happy purim!

my main sound gear is in the shop now, so this was all done with sound system number two, which is really just 2 amps daisy chained together.

piece-o-day ‘untitled’

and also another new solo e-cd, which is sort of an improvised sonata for sound system number two –

‘improv’
keys improv -this improv starts with an old riff and goes several places … but after this was recorded i decided my sound system needs to go into the shop (bleh).
