I record four bar sonically interesting rhythmic phrases on the RC-20 the add 'A' and 'B' harmonic movements with the Boomerang+. The four bar RC20 foundations tend to be African, Tibetan, Hindustani, Balinese, or ancient Chinese in nature.I have an expanding repertoire of 15 songs that are very differant every time I play them because of the building block, no-undo, nature of my live playing. No midi shit or sequencing for me, thank you.
The CD's that I buy these days are east Indian music, Tim Berne,Tool, Tibbetts, Staind and whatever good quality recordings I can find of '68-'71 Miles, and '70-'73 Mahavishnu. Is there anything else out there? I have all the Hendrix there is. Most of the free-improv scenes which I was part of ended in a jerk of self-indulgence. M-Base turned out to be more of an illusion than harmolodics.
The threads of new are elusive and unmarketed; at this contracted stage of a 'safe and secure America,' they exist out of pure love.
