wanted to do a piece that was both similar to last weeks piece and completely different. it's probably most similar just in the sense that it is a Botanimal track, and the sound quality I guess. I also wanted to retain some of the focus and musicality I had going... but to make it barely musical, or at least quite foreign and avant garde sounding. or in other words, to have it be more percussive than melodic, but to have some memorable melody at the same time (perhaps an implied melody?). such as studying the percussive elements of piano and sitar but still using them somewhat in a normal fashion at times.
the piece starts out with little focus and more of an intent on controlled chaos, as if something is running around crazy in your house, or a spastic ghost is trying to create some kind of tangible musical form. then having the piece slowly form some kind of gestalt where the disparate parts create a whole that is more than the individual instruments. sort of a tension, fusion, then release composition. another piece started with a randomly decided time signature (this time was even more difficult with a 12/10 time sig). influences and direction ended up incorporating elements of japanese, hindu, and free jazz music, progressing more towards a homogenized form with drum and bass elements. some composers I thought of while creating this piece are John Zorn, Amon Tobin, Jack Dangers, Mick Harris.
