Short Walk In A Desert [2004] (MJRF)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
The longer version of this song was posted here during my first year, but this one never made it in, although it is the original tune, written for a MacAddict magazine contest (hence the length restriction, it's exactly one minute), and the other one ("Long Walk In A Desert") is an extended remix.
As I have recently learned that this pseudo-arabic scale I made up years ago (C Db E F G Ab B C), actually exists. It's called Raga Bhairav in India...

arabian
You produce a very pro tone out of that horn. An arabian inspired piece which could fit perfectly as a soundtrack to the Prince of Persia game:) Short, but long enough to give me a feeling of a sizzling hot day in Sahara.

1 minute very well spent I'd say
Love the sound of that sax and the overall feel of this. I went to your page and listened to long version and it is absolutely awesome. Thanks for coming to the festival so I could "Discover" you and it.

Be well and be cool my friend,

Intense!
And always inspiring to hear someone play an instrument at a level where any emotion and theme of a song can be expressed so eloquently. In a short minute you create a whole little world of flavors. Well done!
