Emerald Impressions

By Lyons on January 31, 2016 11:50 pm

Every journey leaves impressions and marks on an individual. Looking at a tree that has grown for centuries and observing the cuts, broken branches, lightning marks and hollows.
You don't really know what happened but you can see all the impressions left.

Recorded this while someone was typing on their computer early in the week, re-arranged the parts this morning into something tangible. Desperately needs a tidy-up mix but another week down!

Tryed to get a bit more syncopation than normal and need to explore outside of my normal compositional language.

Very nice, as usual.

It felt evocative of the forest before even reading the program note. And those really slow portamentos really draw out the passing microtonal dissonances, which is wonderful. The only thing I would say is don't be afraid to draw out your ideas and hold off on changing things for longer. You could quite happily live in any one of those textures. Nice work. I want more!

Pretty good work. For me it treads the line between a fleshed out single idea, and multiple ideas. Be wary of the latter as it leads to musical disorganisation.

So this is improvisation? Fucking great.

Some haunting sounds and textures for sure.  Gotta love the acoustic bass sound.

The trees are talking to each other. Lovely smile

This I learned today: a wooden instrument
makes the true wooden sound. So I am sure
I heared the wood from your basses.
You awaked their history as trees.
Great music.

I would love to get my hands on some samples of your raw tracks, but really, I would just ruin everything. Evocative of so much and truly great!
