Part of a duo album that Trip and I have talked about doing for years (I talk to pretty much every musician I like about doing duo records... sometimes they actually happen)
We actually recorded TWO different projects - this one was done 'my way', with all the freewheeling improv goodness that that entails. One was done Trip's way, with commensurate amounts of organisation, wikkid programming, structure and actual songs!
The comparison between the two gives a good indication of what we do, and how we inspire each other to new musical destinations
The Upward Spiral
It was really tricky to choose the opener for the album, and this wasn’t the obvious first choice, as it has a kind of false start... it feels likes it’s going to be all big and ambient, then Trip hints at a sparse bass groove, I switch to the rolling rhythmic line, he follows, then jumps in with the jaunty melody, switches to fretless...
Two minutes in, it’s hopefully clear why it’s the opener.
Joyous, optimistic, improvised music. That’s the idea.
Of course it turns into a freaky glitch-fest at the end, but not before a crescendo of euphoric blade-runner-esque cinematic guitar-ish-ness.
All hail the Kaoss Pad KP3. Nuff Said.
