Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

Chris asked me to produce a five minute dance score with him. We recorded at the Airport Seven rehearsal studio on my Mac in GB'11. Only keys recorded direct - drums and guitars miked with a Samsom CO1U. Chris played percussion, keys, guitar and my modified two string bass (he dragged a guiatr string across it while muting and cutting with his other hand through a wah pedal and fuzz box). That's the clickety noise you hear early on. I played Air FX synth and guitar. We recorded for about three hours and I mixed for another three. In the performance there is a 25 second gap of silence - here I abbreviated it. Chris will sing live to this track accompanying the dancers. This is a first mix. Likely to be changes after Chris hears it. He's a great guy to work with. Google him - he has an eclectic resume.

Chris is an amzing sound artist
and can play the hell out of the guitar traditionally as well. You might recall the band Curlew that he was in back in the day NYC. He's also worked with John Zorn and that whole gang.

I like that typo
"makes seance" - appropriate somehow. Intentional?

Weird sh*t Kevin
but a very interesting listen indeed. I'm sure the performance will be stunning. You DO get yourself into some non-traditional places/spaces. Keep it up.

This was really fun
we worked fast and intuitively. Chris is a great collaborator. Expect more to come.

It even
has the somberness of a war party, half-heartedly getting ready to go off to the battlefield. I think it's the drum beat and engine-like sound playing from the guitar that makes me imagine that. Should be a very dramatic dance piece. Thanks, guys.

Awesome stuff
Reminds me a little of the very earliest of Tangerine Dream, they've got a tune or two in this vein ;-)

Thanks for sharing,

Im impressed
Simply the nature of this jam has me glued. Very unique. I would like to hear it with the singing or even how it looks with Chris singing and the dancer/s.

Sounds complicated...
...the description you have given for this performance piece. And I think this is the kind of score that definitely has to be seen as well as heard. No doubt you guys have a specific plan for that performance. What a terrific experiment, though. You continue to amaze me with the breadth of your musical and artistic interests. So cool.
