Description
Katchoolik asked if I had anymore of this...and it got me to thinking...surely I do. Here's another, from MC and I from more than 20 years ago.
Michael is playing the accoustic, and I am playing the E Bow on a modified strat, a Roland JX3P keyboard, and perhaps some misc other items...
It is, remains as the others, unaltered. Just as it was recorded to cassette tape more than 20 years ago, in the bedroom of my San Francisco Flat.

Lightly Mysterious
The synth behind the guitar creates suspense. When you
then strum a chord, it releases the building suspense.

Where at in Frisco?
Where at maybe I've worked near there, or grew up near
there?

Nice modern suff!

Full of cool sounds!

Like that acoustic modern feel on Michael guitar.
Nice bow sound, great mixture.
Erie in a very nice sort of way!

It's so serene, there's not a building in sight. It makes me look at that one buttercup, alone in the middle of the field. Then I go home and paint a canvas red.

Somewhere I'm going to dig up a photo I have of the "Recording Studio". My wife
was usually sleeping about 5 feet away while Michael and I sat up for hours on
end playing and recording music. We played everyday...everyday, morning,
night, if we weren't working, we were playing. We recorded everything, some of
the best of which happened during those "living room" sessions.

I REALLY like this!
Gosh, I think I was just talking to bizarre about ebows... I
have one sitting in a box around here somewhere...

This has a touch of what I like in Brian Eno, but it's its own
thing as well...I love the guitar textures and the
improvised feel... Melody and space... sounds great in
headphones...

Little tiny flecks of dissonance... and the acoustic sounds
like it could be a twelve-string...

It's really something special...

I REALLY like this!
You're right about the guitar. Michael wasn't playing his Martin on this, he was
playing his 12 string. I don't remember what it was...I just remember playing
every 12 string in San Francisco for a year while he looked for the "sound". I
remember he got a deal on it, because it had a cracked finish. I remember he
could play the %#&^ out of that thing too.

great sound for old analog
Considering the fact you put this to a cassette it still has
really good quality. Like the bow on the electric with the
sounds of lake on the acoustic. Reminds me of when my
brother and I use to sneak into the music store with a
cassette deck and start recording our jam. Sooner or later
you would hear a door slam and then the salesman would
ask us if we were going to buy something. Glad I dropped
by.

great sound for old analog
Ya, I have no idea how I did it back then. I had wires patching everything
together...amazing there are any recordings at all. I haven't attempted to "Post
Process" any of these files, so they are, just as they were.

I have to admit though, many of my favorites were recorded with nothing more
than a portable walkman in the middle of the room.

Really Cool
His is so cool and old school. Reminds me of the old ECM
recordings from Sweden and guys like Terje Rypdal. It's
always fun to pull something "out of the vault."

Really Cool
I remember those recordings. I loved that ECM stuff.

I started very ambitiously to archive all of the music that I have recorded over
the years to digital, but...

I just posted one more from this same period, it's a theme piece, a play in 3
parts, for your ears. Alzie's Garage.

The certain past. Uncertain reality.
At meditation.
btransue travels around time.

It tries to capture something feeling always.
Then, something spills from the hand and it falls.

Travel that obtains something.
Travel that loses something.

E Bow to my eMac
I have always wanted to know what an E Bow sounded
like. Read articles and saw advertisements but never
heard one. I have to say I really like it. I am amazed at the
really clear sound. How did you keep the feedback so
controlled. I am impressed!!

Lovely.
You and Michael had to have been in your own world. This would work as a soundtrack for an underwater documentary of coral reefs or a spelunking adventure or a space odyssey. You created an inviting but otherworldly sound. Thanks.

Smooth and tasty!
Just right for whatever is wrong. This is searching, a quality that is hard to create and very much appreciated. I will be back for more...
