New Age Jazz Theme
Hi Rich, Keith, Deon, Derek, Gibbo and David, Cheers, and I thank you all for the kind words, I have been taking a bit of a rest from music these last few days, but I fully intend to catch up on everyone's new tracks in the next few days! To clear up the Casio mystery, NO this is actually a sample based emulation, which I used with the FXpansion Geist software! I have to admit that this done using (Sampletank) Samples and Geist, so it's all computer software based, I used a M-Audio 32 key mini-keyboard and that's it, just fiddling about!
No offense taken, Kevin :) Probably not a casio, given Andrew's new toy(s), but I'm certainly reminded of it, and how often I'd do much like he's doing here, set that beat and just take off.....
David! I was thinking of you when i was writing the comment, no offence intended, Casio beats are cool!
Ha ha, Gibbo said "Casio" and I came runnin'...if that's not the real deal it's mighty close! Great backdrop for your jazzy musings on that keyboard, the bongos and tambourine are a nice touch too. Yeah, love that beat, miss my old casio so much, but ya know, Gibbo's right, I too wouldn't mind hearing this minus that element. There's a bit of a sense of relief on that outro when you drop it out...enjoyed several listens all the same :)
I think whimsical is a good word to describe this Andrew, lovely piano sounds and bass. I would like to hear a version without the Casio type beat running throughout but i might want it back in again, you know what i'm saying? haha. Great piece anyway and a thumb from me. Gibbo
lovely soft feel to this Andrew, just the thing after a hard day. Lilting and yeah, whimsical - great.
Totally agree with you and Rich...music sometimes just happens...a element of luck perhaps, but there has to be something in there deep for it to bubble up from. Some nice keyboard tunes here this week. This is very wistful and 'floaty' ...got all me moneys worth at 8 mins too! Yes! keith
Funny how something can form from just fiddling around. I write 90% out of fiddling. When i was younger, I would have dreams of music and wake to record them before I lost the tune. Now I'm older, I fiddle mostly and come up with something. Sometimes I think a spirit comes to me and taps my shoulder. I think you had one here for this tune. It's so relaxing and ever present in it's stride. A little jazzer in there as well an element that is unmistakably you. I'm really digging this Andrew.
I have been (pretty much) into recording since the mid 1980's, even before I bought my first 4-track cassette recorder (A Tascam Porta-One) I did a few things at a Melbourne based art school where I ran a couple of tape decks, with manipulated sounds on the tapes, just to hear what it sounded like, needless to say it was experimental!
Thereafter I tried to get onto some more serious recording, and tried my hand at steel string guitar songs, I am a left handed person, who plays guitar right handed, so I don't ever need to re-set any instrument, and also the left handed way does not feel right to me, I'm not sure why this is, but it just is!
Recently I have been enticed by all the modern soft-synths and incredible processing availabe to computer aided recording, and I mainly (still) use Garageband when I track, I have tried Ableton Live and Pro-Tools, but I need to learn a whole lot more, the are very intetesting, but I always go back to Garageband, for some reason I find it works for me, and is quite similar to my old Atari ST (running Cubase 0.1!) which I still have, and it still works too!
Anyhow, I try a variety of genre's and I love all electronic music, I also like Ambient, World, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop....etc
Music is like oxygen to me, I don't think I could ever live without it!
