Hey, I remember bits of this...
...or I think I do...

And first of all, see, if you had your alternative b&b here in New England, say, around here, you could take guitar lessons from me and Mark and Fran and do whatever you want... (And even though I'm not a very accomplished player, I'm not bad at getting people 'launched' into guitar-player-hood...)

And I WISH I had the chops that I would want to have to phrase what pops into my head when I listen to your stuff... I continue to love and admire the musicality of the percussion that you use, and on this one, I'm listening on my speakers and I love the left and right spaciousness that's going on...

When I listen to some of your music, I also find myself wishing that I was a really good and really imaginative bass player--not because the bass lines you put in with the pencil aren't cool, but just because that seems like the end of the frequency spectrum where I wish I could make a contribution....

Now I have to find the earlier version(s) of this, which I just know have another name or three...

I'm always happy when you post something, Dion....

Great to see any post from you Dion!
This is very cool though. I'd love to be good enough to have a shot at this, but I can't imagine ever being able to play what I'm hearing in my head. Like Ed, I'm really enjoying this through my monitors. Eduard sums it up pretty well "things we don't know we need" - very perceptive person that Drak.
Keep on posting Dion - I think a lot of us would love you (and quite a few others) back around te place on a more regular basis.
Best wishes from Oz,
Neil

Why you post? Because we NEED you to!
Weirdly satisfying... you write things we don't know we need, and while listening, we realize that this is crazy, but crazy-good, and it just hits the spot. Miss ya, so it's good to see your smiling mug on the steps... I still taste dinner next door there!
ttfn,

Sweet!
I actually like the mix of guitar sounds you used. plus that mad piano. This is great. I'm going to play around with some ideas for some vocals and such and see if it takes me anywhere. Or at least takes me anywhere that's not a dark, scary place filled with what might just possibly be monsters. Of course, they may not be monsters. It could be just the cat under the bed. The point is, we just really can't say at this moment.

Anyhoo, it's great to hear some tunage from you again, my friend. Always a great way to brighten up an evening.

Nice______
Man, I have to get me a "pencil tool". Sounds to me like you can do some pretty cool things musically with this thing.(?)

Dion - I enjoyed - Thanks for sharing,

Nice to see you around again in a posting mood. There's always something very musical about your percussion sounds and you even seem to play the piano in a percussive way.... it's all so light and musical. Love this, it's so playful and yet could be the back music for a drama of some kind. I'd put this in the Cinematic category. Enjoyed the listen, regards M

Sound
choices and rhythms second to none. Indeed the dissonance here and there is nicely offset with the re-emergence of some juicy jazz jams. Hard for me to comprehend you penciling this. Great skill there. Especially how you lock that bass in.

Percussion
I really enjoyed this as it stands--it has a "composed" and structured feel that nonetheless still feels totally human and intriguing.

If I could play the Kora for this I would
or Griot - very cool track. Could also imagine Bela Fleck rocking this arrangement.

You are inventive
and inspiring. It was so interesting to listen to your romp on that piano roll. Your pencil has a sharp point and you placed notes with a vengeance.
What a fun composition. :)

Geez Dion...
It's been so long, it's good to hear anything by you... even a mere sketch!

I agree with Bud's Bela Fleck comment. Very cool!

Be well friend!

Complex little number
but very well made with lots of different flavors throughout, crossing from east to west, jazz to r&b with bits of samba and reggae, would be a musician to take this on eh? Wow.

Really pleased I managed to find it today though. You do amazing music and thanks for the download.

Always a Trip...
... down the rabbit-hole with Dion. Another adventure. Always curious and curiouser... and interesting.

Some day I'm going to compel you to create something more in a commercial vein with me and we'll see what happens. It could mean the end of the world as we know it. LOL
