Hello, #metoo! I listened to the whole thing during the past 7 days, amazing , massive work.
Bravo everybody, these collab-juntos should be more the rule rather than the exception, I love it and that’s what “junto” is all about in my mother tongue…
I went a bit “drone” this week, trying to stick myself into two very mysterious drone-like tracks that really puzzled me:
The first one was https://soundcloud.com/marcolucchi/der-steppenwolf that’s Marco’s collaboration with michel banabila adding to his track Michel-banabila – Fase-1-disquiet-0429-solitary-ensembles
This one really liked and puzzled me, there’s a mysterious modulating sound and performance on the mellotron that reminds me of Gregorian chant, even if the sound is no “voices” but more like a string-harmonium sound. But it evokes a bunch of ancient Greek monks on acid , recorded on an old Geloso (what won’t I give to lay my hands again on my mum’s old Geloso that served as my first experimental recording device when I was 6 ?) Nevermind…
Thanks to Marco and Michel for their inspiring track.
For this one I worked over this track by @encym
Encym – Oozes-two-drones-looking-for-companydisquiet0430
That is a collaboration with this original solo by @joe-mcmahon
Joe-mcmahon – Where-i-was-drone-only-disquiet-0429
I performed synthesizers (MicroKorg, Emu Vintage Keys) to add some more "regular "musical content (melodies, harmonies) to a drone track that sounded very musical to me, it was difficult to catch in terms of my reactions to it, it sounded abstract and musical, cold-experimental and warm and sensitive, very inspiring one.
I know I made it more “cliché” standard and less mysterious to my ears, but that’s what I had to add anyway, it’s ok. It was nice to jam along with them on this one.
Third, a more standard track, with bass, guitar, drums and an overdub of accordina.
I performed over @howthenightcame 's track https://soundcloud.com/howthenightcame/c-disquiet0430-ryan-scott-mattingly
That was his duo over @ryanscottmattingly 's https://soundcloud.com/ryanscottmattingly/rabbit-food-disquiet0429
I played standard rhythm section (upright bass) over the basic guitar+drum track, then added an Accordina improvisation over it.
It’s nice, melancholic, it was a pleasure for me, cheers
