this is me and our youngest jamming out ideas for a song last weekend. it's a bit repetitive, but you can hear her bashing away on the 3/4 scale Yamaha acoustic and coaching me on my playing and making arrangement suggestions.
once upon a time, i had the multi-track stems for various famous songs in my possession. one of them was "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen. here, then, is all faders up with no mutes and no effects or anything else. warts, abandoned ideas, fuck-ups and so on are all there. holy crap.
listening to Tomita's interpretation of Debussy done on a big Moog modular. Claude Debussy was doing space music with orchestral instruments back in the 19th century! certainly, these versions of "Clair de Lune" and "The Engulfed Cathedral" are a trip.
"Since none of us made any plans for 2013 due to the Mayan apocalypse,
here we all are, sitting around, twiddling our thumbs with nothing to
do. We all quit our jobs, of course, and gave up on paying bills, so
we've got all the time in the world to do whatever we like."
just got dragged into the music room by our youngest dotter who insisted she wanted to write a song with me. so we grabbed a couple of guitars and a digital note recorder. surprise, we actually have the germ of a song with parts and basic arrangement and words. it's like a psychedelic pop masterpiece in the making. 0_o
"I started playing in '65 at the age of 13 and I played along with the AM radio in those days and many of us in my generation often joked that our six favourite drummers were all Hal Blaine." -- Neil Peart, drummer for Rush
