Alphabet Dust - Leaving Reminders

With a fanfare of kazoos, my answer to the NaSoAlMo challenge is finished and online. "Leaving Reminders" was written and recorded from scratch in short bursts between 1st-22nd November. Much of the content was played rather than sequenced and some imperfections in the performance, arrangement and mixing (some more obvious than others to the impartial listener) have been left intact. But I quite like some of them, particularly little timing errors when layering arpeggiator parts. But as my… Continue

another ambient track, this one, a bit more rhythmic in parts

Thanks for listening and giving me your thoughts on it when you have a moment.

Obscure tribal ambient album worth sharing...

Hi RM'ers….just sharing this tribal ambient I found years ago and have recently rediscovered. This is the only album/project I have found by this artist. Lots of drums, flutes, and environmental sounds.

I Put You In A Box

I put you in a box

Of things I thought I knew

Of mysteries I thought I solved

But I never had a clue



I put you in a box

And described you to a tee

But I drowned out what was true

With my judge reality



I put you in a box

And I buried you so deep

I forgot to have the funeral

Or the memory I 'd keep



I put you in a box

And I labeled you so hard

Now you never will escape

The judging cutting… Continue

Back in the Game: Live at Archer Heights Library

After a two-year break, it was time to get back on the live wagon, to make sure the wheels were still securely attached. So I jumped at the library's invitation.

I had planned to play all composed pieces, but it finally dawned (at the last rehearsal) that this was involving too many guitars (four, including the 12-string and the acoustic), so I cut back to the usual two and revamped the program, allowing for a couple of improvised flings.

So I ended up with three pieces from…
