Description
This informational talk describes the experimental steps that led to the creation of the ic42/awigze collaboration piece called "labores solis" (here.) I hope you enjoy this behind the scenes peek into my experimental world. Please let me know if this is interesting at all, or not.

I love the idea of this audio documentary. Very interesting to know the creative process and clearly explained with the sound chops intermixed. As good as public radio.
Kool! :-)

You can 'splain
until you're blue in the face...and um... I, unfortunately STILL wouldn't understand. I loved listening to you. I thought it sounded nice, but you said,."bl-e-e-ch!" I have no taste. Heh, heh!
Arigato.

very cool.
I learned as much after the project by this than I did while I was recording the part that you wrote for me. Very cool project. This is nicely crafted!

nice
cool stuff. I love getting a sneak peak at one's creative process.
I actually liked #2 the best. Stretch out the harmonic rhythm a bit, I think you got a winner with 2. The final sounds very cool.
Thanks for sharing all of it!

Pay attention to the dragon behind the curtains!
Interesting. Especially since you're also leading us down the dead ends. They are often at least as illuminating as the final journey, straight to the goal.

I love hearing the madn er thought behind
the music. Great narrative and interesting experiment. You and Smokey should team up for a Schickele conference. Quite amazing where you ended up - and quite beautiful as well.

Fascinating..
I am learning things I hadn't imagined I would. Still not sure if that's a good thing ;) This is very entertaining. I'll be back for sure.
Peace

Nice glimpse in...
Very cool to let us into the process, Eduard. Everyone works in a different manner, and it's great to "see" someone else doing what they do. You have technique I never would have thought of. You are able to connect the right and left sides of your brain and use them both in your creativity. Quite an advantage...

Thanks for calling my attention to this. Very cool to be in your studio with you.

This is very interesting!
A documentary into music development, how cool! Very interesting concept. I never think like this myself when creating, but this post makes me wonder, could I? That in itself is a huge accomplishment that you deliver with this post. It raises more questions than answers.

What a cool idea.
It's not often you get to listen to how a song develops. It was cool to hear how the melody went from light to somber and then became so rich with the sax addition. Very, very interesting.

Eduard,
More? Yes, definitely! It generates an immediate interest in experimental music. Being a software engineer too, I can really appreciate the way you think. I love hearing the genesis of how other artists put their stuff together. Now its off to listen to "labores solis". . .

Cool
You are trying to create music using visual cues rather than musical ones. Very interesting. Never really thought about that much. I think Beethoven used a similar visualization technique. If you want a chord chart I found an awesome one in PDF form. Makes life much easier for song writing. Very informative and creative way to come up with songs!

Here is the link
The 7 basic chords for each key signature. A very handy reference. This website also has LOTS of other more complex charts for all sorts of things.

labores solis (Behind the Scenes)
You reject chord changes I would send out for others to collaborate on. I like when you say "this wasn't working." To my ear they were all working. This is an interesting concept for the community (posts about how one composes).
