This is a work in progress…

I’ve been taking 4 passes through each of the pieces, and then listening to them to see which one has the best presentation of the key ideas. I’ve grown fond of take 3 in tonights walk through the Mercer Island forest. Damp, swampy, cold. Not at all like the desert. But this take captures the key focus. The sun is the short bent springs. The percussion is the relentless footsteps. The long springs are the threats that will not go away.

One thought on “Into the Desert 3rd take”

  1. I like it. Great spring samples! And great idea to have them represent the sun and threats.

    Rhythm sounds like (primarily) 3+3+3+4, and then (sometimes) 4+4+4+1.

    All done in Csound? Is there any post-processing done in other apps?

    Great music. Just came across your blog (though I’ve heard your music in the past and am a fan), and I look forward to hearing more.
