I'm still recovering from last weekend.
The issue with spending three days in close quarters with a few hundred of your closest friends is that germs spread quickly. I was spared the worst of the deathflu going 'round, but only because I canceled all my appointments this week and spent a lot of time under the covers with a Le Carre novel.
So I'm behind on all my projects.
So I decided on something simple. No beats, just straight ambient tones. I also did something that I've been meaning to explore for a while-- building a piece around the Bird Changes pioneered by Charlie Parker. I still don't entirely understand how they work, with all the tritone substitutions and whatnot, but just messing around with the chords has given me a better feel for it all.
60BPM, about 4.5 minutes. If you think it's too slow and long, just know that it was originally 30BPM and 9 minutes long...
The title is a pun on the fact that I wrote it trying to capture somewhat the feeling of fighting off a flu, and that it uses the Bird Changes.
