Once Around the Kitchen, Quickly


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
As promised, here is the first part of a loops-only, percussion-driven trio of works. The second and third parts, Drums and Brass and All Funked Up have already been posted.

This piece contains 5 tracks: a) a kit playing 3 Motown Drummer loops; b) an acoustic bass playing an Upright Funk Bass loop; c & d) 2 different horn tracks playing 2 orchestral horn loops as well as an electric piano loop each; and e) a piano playing 3 Upbeat Piano loops as well as a third English Horn loop ;-) To me, it sounds like a band at the end of the night, finishing with a wildly uptempo number with little spotlight bits for each section.

The title is, I believe, a cooking term meaning "a little of everything" and it seemed appropriate for this piece: I added the adverb. I found the accompanying artwork during a web search but it was not attributed and I cannot read the signature: again, it seems to fit the energy and vitality of the music.

I'd be a lot happier if some of the sounds were a little less furry but overall it's a fun piece and I hope you like it.

Wow I totally dig this. Some really awesome melodies in there and great tones throughout. Despite the fast tempo it's nicely controlled. Nice work.

There might have been something other than hi-O they were running on
but nobody burst any bloodvessels and the cops weren't called so it all worked out good. And I'm happy you agree. Thanks, Ed.

The Kitchen
The one room in my house that I stay clear of, and for good reasons too! I can hear that this is a little of everything, which is neat. Sweet tune!

Very understated and chill...
I do recognize the loops, but you have altered them a bit and have placed them perfectly in the mix so they sound really fresh...nicely done Richard!

Once Around the Kitchen, Quickly
Wow, all the parts are fitting together perfectly. It must take an incredible amount of patience to audition all of those loops and fit them into a coherent whole. Nicely done!

As I love "ambient" music, this would be right up there with the rest of what I hear commercially. Nice work!
