Ok, this one… Despite of the furious head-scratching, lip-twisting & eye-squinting, I do not remember at all…
That this one there being FATHER SUSPIOUS.
It’s pretty neat though. Little bit of mystery, some suspence, just a sprinkle of comedy, very little romance.
Recorder! That puny instrument that could!
Whew, writingses for the upcoming monthses are doneskis! So, time for a liiittle more vacation. Just an hour… a day or two… or until next monday…
Hey, another familiar one!
This one was also originally constructed as a background track. This time the lesson was II-V’s. Lot’s of ’em. No, more than that. I mean lots!
Not today. Last week we were educational, so that pretty much means it’s time for joking.
What the heck is PEPRIKORN? If capricorn is a cross between a fish and a goat, is peprikorn a half pepper, half unicorn?
Now that I’d like to see!
Originally crafted as a background for improvisation, MYST is phrygian.
Phrygian in music that is. We’re not talking about the region in Anatolia.
Hmm, I don’t know how widely known this following fact is: Did you know that the modes of the major scale were named after regions in ancient Greece? (Or the whole story is a bit more complicated but, still…) The modes (that are also scales derivated from the major scale) being Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian.
This is something that every musician out there knows.
Now you know too. Welcome to the club!
I kinda remembered this one… Or it’s title, I should say. PASTORAL PRESENTE is the name, concluding our little retro-futuristic-cyber-dance-trilogy is the game.
All the pieces can be found in the electronic category, and they are, in the order of appearance:
El Grungo Pasto
Yay, more trilogies! That’s exactly what the world needs!
In case I’ve never mentioned: At the end of each month, I write these postings for the next month. As in late july (or right now, as I’d like to call it), it feels really weird to write these words for the august, because I’ve been taking a well deserved break from producing music.
I’m like: “What’s this tune then? That’s pretty good! What the heck, did I make this?! Bagpipes, really, bagpipes?!”
I guess the confusion tells me that my break has been a succees.
Slowly towards the autumn & arki.
Almost forgot: BLINK. It’s guitarless, guitar-pop. Unlike alcohol-free beer, it actually works!
