Was looking for an identifiable cover for an up coming performance at the Adelaide guitar festival ‘guitars in bars’ July 21st 2018…something about guitars, something that i played as a kid learning…so in an unidentifiable kind of way i chose ‘While my guitar gently weeps’ by George Harrison played with a Bulerias rhythm. The idea and arrangement loosely came from one of my favourite guitarists Juanito Pascual. Still work to do…scrap off some of the poly filler to let it breathe…it should sound great with the addition of bass and drums
This music happens easily..ambient, buoyant, chill, lounge, soundtrack, drum and bass, minimal guitar…whatever its called..not everyones cup of tea…unless your making one, then it may work…Headphones a must..it all comes from music i’ve been playing since the late 70’s, when looping involved two tape machines and has been continuing since…music tech has become so much more intuitive, like playing digital Lego in a way..fun and surprising…some of these sounds end up in the visual media world, much of it lays dormant on a hard drive or uploaded to a streaming platform … this is a new piece im building so still in early stages…just a glimpse.. inspired by my daily Nadabrahama meditation…” If your music cannot create silence in those listening, it is not music…it is just making noise” OSHO ` i hope some find enjoyment and a sense of peace in these sounds
Bulerias…spent a beautiful weekend at Kilakanoon vineyards over the Clare Valley gourmet weekend..a peaceful night at a tiny town called Blyth…first time ive seen a blanket of stars for sometime…managed to take it all in with some Nadabrahma meditation while the royal wedding was being dissected in the front bar of the local, the juxtaposition of all things real, here and now, …so here is some music..the video is simply a GoPro on the dashboard on the drive out from Kilakanoon…hope you enjoy.
