  Nice work, Rick. I like the morphing about half way into the song, and then again toward the end. These make for nice breaks in the groove.

  This is an intriguing song. The stereo panning is hypnotic. What is that, a Rhodes on the chord work?

  Besides the fact that the title of this song is pleasantly disgusting, Mr. Davignon's bizarre material never ceases to amaze me...especially since I saw him loop live in Santa Cruz for Y24K. This song is minimalist in terms of tone diversity, but full of personality. Toward the end, I like the pauses and re-starts. Might this song be the sound of an alien spaceship with a bad muffler or ignition problem? :)

My de facto theme song asks the eternal question to which we all await the answer . . .

stream trackload mp3   The Importance of Being Ernest
This piece was a distance collaboration with Patrick Smith. Patrick and I exchanged some solo improvisations via post. Patrick worked with an augmented electric guitar. I worked with alto sax, bass clarinet, Native Instruments Reaktor, and a circuit of lo-fi electronics -- circuit-bent stomp boxes and a Kaos Pad. Then, through a collaborative process, we turned the completed pieces of music we exchanged into a new, jointly composed piece of music.

  The haunting voice melody is excellent....almost new species, animal-like...man, it's creepy, almost African sounding.

stream trackload mp3   Une danse dans la cuisine du Roi de Beteigeuze
The track was composed of these sounds (can you spot them?):

a vocal sample from a renaissance music cd - the cracking of an aluminium yoghurt package lid - a large wooden paper pulp stamper driven by a water wheel - a metal leg of a table - the squeaking and honking of mushrooms being cut with a knife. Everything was put together using Sonic Foundry's Acid software.

  Very, very creative and clever. The sound of mushrooms? This is brilliant. You must have had the mic level cranked to ultra sensitivity. What's the translation..."Dance In The Kitchen Of King De Beteigeuze"?

no, actually the mushrooms are quite loud. :-) Try it.

  one of my favorite tracks from Where We're At. I like surprising, angular music like this. Big fun to listen to. Would make a nice soundtrack to an interesting short film.

  Finally, my own primary instrument (the guitar) comes to the forefront. And this song has a melody, which is refreshing. The reverse work is a nice touch...OH, and a bass solo (or guitar an octave down?). Magnificant! A real player? Flesh and blood on the fretboard? One can only hope. :)
