Trying to wrestle a bit with “love theme” from blade runner. I find it very rythmically challenging as there really isn’t any drums or bass to lean up against.
A lot of listening there @Nick Wyver . I need to do it in one go to do it justice.Latest project is and my drumming friend Les. He's just plonked this on Bandcamp. Recorded on my cheap Samsung phone so not exactly hi-fi.
Look forwards to hearing some of this in the future.I like this thread in that it helps rationalize the general chaos of my so called creativity. Also- everything feels a bit more real after I've announced its existence!
I’m in the latter stages of putting together my experimental folk jazz trio’s first four track EP- hammer dulcimer / harp, double bass, me on assorted whistles and saxes plus a fair bit of electronica. The project only exists via DAW but I’m really liking the sound, I’ve got a bit of hankering to try and assemble a version for live work- particularly if I can find an acoustically interesting & atmospheric venue like an old church.
My musical accompaniment for a silent movie and Henry Mancini tribute album both feel like they’re the kids in class putting their hands up and going “pick me, pick me”.
Absolutely- like telling folks you're giving up smoking....I feel exactly the same about posting my intentions. Commital?
It's the actual pulling stuff from the ether and bottling/pickling it that's the fun/difficult part though.
Yeah the internet is fabulous. Unfortunately it's also very distracting and potentially wasteful when it comes to actually playing.
I'm, more or less, back to point were I started my sax journey for roughly 50 years ago: Playing easy rock and blues songs. Maybe upload a recording to "my sound clip" as a goal? No more talk about saxes, mpc's, reeds reapair, therory, great players ..... I'm just going to to blow my sax. The recording has nothing to do " ... look and see what I can do ...". More a sign from an old honker that is still thriving with the rocksax.
- Still trying to play/blow every day.
- Try to make some kind of recording so I have a goal.
