i’ve got a new mixtape with improvised sessions made while prepping for flashcrash during the past month

track two “one who sees” is quite special for me…it took me a while to plan but once i had a framework for improvising i recorded it twice in december

“OWS” serves as a reminder of many things (which i’ll discuss more when you can hear the alt version) but this particular take encapsulates everything i like emphasizing and exploring: freeform structure, loose tonal improvising, plus analog feedback woven into digitally fractured drums and percussion

The song points as much toward folk/roots music or frenzied birdsong as it does the earnest soloing & arrangement on one of my fav jazz songs of all time (keith jarret’s “flame”)

listening to this will always remind me of those things :sunglasses: so i’m proud of the results

the third tune uses some of the same pool of samples but half is processed with norns and the other half w/ OT (i’m still a novice with octatrack and trying to find ways to utilize it more)

if you enjoy some of this please let me know…

D/L Codes for everyone!
