Midway-Sunset

Midway-Sunset

slow, hypnotic and weighty piece inspired by the fields of “nodding donkeys” of the Midway-Sunset oil fields in California. I watched these oblivious behemoths feeding off the land each side of State Highway 33 for mile after mile.

a soundtrack to accompany nine minutes and eight seconds of your life. Probably best with headphones to hear the low sounds and little elements that appear and disappear like jetsam & flotsam in an ever moving and tumbling body of water.

a piece with a darkish heavy mood resolved by soaring lighter sections. Inspired by my memories of le Salève, a mountain with wondrous views of Geneva and surroundings.

same as it ever is

a piece for two pianos, trumpet, violin, cello, double bass and small violin section. Played here by Bam Boozle and the horn swogglers in a big echoey hall. Bam is playing a basic theme again and again while Ruth, Boa, Art, Patrick and Ed muck about on other instruments (made a small change to the cello part, never liked the original – 23/12/10).

a laid back hybrid number with jazz and classical themes played on trumpet and vibes over a strong rhythm, underplayed by French horns, pads and other strange noises (added a new trumpet part 20/05/09).
