450 Miles Samba


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Well... I am back after over four month of irrelevant life activities, like looking for an apartment, moving, looking for a job, getting one, etc. Boring, nervewrecking and tiring, and very time consuming.
The song:
Another attempt to write a happy song, this time a bit more successful, I think; but it's for the listeners to decide. My wife, to whom the song is dedicated, accepted, that this is, probably, as happy, as it gets, when I play - must be the sound, she says...
Recorded in Cleveland, Ohio, mixed in Brooklyn, New York - hence the name.
The idea was to use as many household objects as percussion instruments, as possible (I was planning to do it for a long time, was just waiting for a melody to come along). Refer to the hardware description for details.
Enjoy, and comment.
Thank you!

Worth the wait
You're my second genius of the day (you and daphna).
This is a piece of work, Ilya. From beginning to end. Pure
joy in my mind. Everything is working here. All household
objects performing their tasks to perfection. Love the
unison sax/marimba/flute. Also like the false ending and
percussion reprise and sax duet surprise. Showoff!

Suggestions? This is all I can come up with: I would bring
up the whistle a bit in the mix toward the end. That's it.

Thank you , Tom. I'll think 'bout the whistle - I have to let it sit for a week or
two, and then listen to it again.

He's back.... and how!
Glad to see you are over your long bout of music
melancholy. Your wife must be relieved : )
Ilya, what a totally complete and enjoyable
instrumental. Your sax playing is so sweet in this.
And I especially love the harmonies of the duet at
the end, perfectly quirky sounding, taking the
the listener for a surprise ride that leads right
back to the theme.

Just happy enough of a sound to make me crack a
slight smile ; )

Very inventive
Fantastic jazz. The percussion is wonderful; just the right
mix of sounds. I recognized that Zippo sound right away.
And the sax playing is as great as ever. Having start out
casual and transform into rhythm was brilliant. I don't know
what else to say. This excellent in every way and was a joy to
listen to. Downloaded for future enjoyment.

...the only problem I have
...with this song is that every time I hear the first 8 bars, I reluctantly light up
myself :) And since I do all screening in my car (because it's stereo system is the
best I have) on the way to and from work, it takes me now about half a pack a
round trip.... almost kidding.
Thank you!

clever, ingenious and musical!
WELCOME BACK, ILYA!! I've really missed you here, and am
very glad that you've returned. I hope that your new life is
an improvement over the "old", now that the dust seems
to be settling. Best wishes.

This is a great piece! The use of all those unusual objects
as percussion is wonderful, and something I've wanted to
do for a long time. You're inspiring me now with this very
well-done tune.

The main musical theme here is simple, and catchy. It
holds the whole piece together nicely. Your sax playing is
soulful as usual. You've blended it perfectly with the other
instruments on this recording.

And just when I thought this tune was over.....there was
MORE! I really liked that "coda".

Ilya, this is my favorite tune of yours so far, and they've
ALL been good. But this one is special.

Now please don't disappear again anytime soon!

YES
YES! When I saw this tune in the rating list with a mean of
9.63, I thought that no, no, that cant be possible. But Yes,
it was! Of course this one shall have noting less than that!

And I am happy you realized this old dream (for me too)
of household percussion! Have you ever listened carefully
to the sound of door of a new freezer closing? Or a new
Mercedes door? Or two unopened soft pet bottles full of
carbonized soft drink, shaked so they're hard, held loosly
by their tops, one in each hand, and stiked against each
other just at the middle of the bottle body ...
plooonggggg.... Very interesting.

Well there are more...

Besides all this, you have managed to make really good
music of it! Thanks!

A very inventive piece of work here, to say the least. Terrific
and tasty chops complemented by household items.

A couple of blasts here and there from the kitchen sink's
faucets wouldn't have hurt though. ;-)

Just a great piece of work. I'm, well... jazzed.

The Big Sax is Back!
Great groove, Ilya.

I hope Brooklyn is treating you well. Something tells me you found those objects as you were packing to move. Your wife probably wanted you to throw that stuff out in the worst way. I can just hear you telling her, "No honey, they have all kinds of uses. I can do this with this and I can do that with that. Let me keep them PLEASE, OH PLEASE!" Before you know it, you're getting huge scores and great responses for a most creative tune! Tell your wife I said, "Oh, let him keep his stuff! But, don't let him near your jewelry or make-up kit!" lol! Good stuff, IG. One of your best!

So, I'm checking out the....

thinking to myself... who the hell gets a 9.57??? Musta
got all of his friends to vote...

Boy I was surprised when I listened. This is fabulous. It's
a tune that makes me think "how did he come up with
that". The percussion is amazing... and the effort to put it
together and loop it all... wow.

The sax playing is perfectly professional. I can totally see
this tune in the background of opening film credits or
something similar. Hell, i'm gonna download it. Now I
can see it playing in my office while i'm working.

Amazing Job.

Love the cuteness of it
Really think this is marvelously cute, jazzy tune that I think
does Macajams proud. Love that zippo lighter throughout
this wounderful tune and how it kind of sets the theme. Of
course the sax is very listenable and the list goes on and on.
Like those harmonies with the harmonies at the end.

Thanks for the enjoyment. You did your job well!

You play such a smooth tenor. Does the sequence of

items in the rhythm section, the great way you can mic your
sax so close and clean. Wo, give me a call and maybe we can

Reminds me of Triplets of Belleville
and the way they make unexpected music out of a refrigerator, a vacuum cleaner, etc. Also the way they used ambient sound to lay down the beat in the Cellblock Tango in the movie version of "Chicago." I love these "found sound" pieces and it's just an extra bonus that the saxophone is just mesmerizing and perfectly played. By the time it starts up I've quit analyzing all the sounds I'm hearing and just going with it. Wonderful job.

What fun!
The use of instruments made from household objects is
clever, interesting and amusing, but it wouldn't be so
great if there wasn't also a great tune underneath it all.

I listened once this morning, and then again when
everyone was up...LOUDER...and I have to say that I
appreciate the cleanliness and fullness of the recording,
especially of the percussion instruments, at a higher
volume... My young son was dancing in the living room...

Recording and playing of the bass and sax are also
awesome.

Nice fake-out ending....

There's so much to like here...

iG.STUDiO said 4411 days ago (August 28th, 2005)

Thank you very much. Although it is very pleasing to have the song charted, I
sometimes wonder, if anyone would notice it at all, if I wouldn't describe in
details the hardware I used... Thanks for the compliments on the melody and
playing (the only "real" instrument is sax - two takes, two solos. Bass, piano,
flute,
vibes, drums - are all pencilled in.) Mixing was rather painfull, somewhere on
the edge of my iMac's abilities, even with most of the tracks rendered - way too
many of them. Glad you enjoyed it. And yes, it should be played loud :)

Very inventive percussion sounds
I like the groove a lot, and the sampled sounds you use as percussion are
fantastic. Very smooth saxophone playing too. It takes a while to get
going, probably a bit longer than I might choose, but maybe that's just
because I'm trying to listen while my two boys are climbing all over me, so
my patience is probably lower than it normally would be. I like the false
ending; it occurs to me that it would be great to come back (for the tail
section) in a different key, but again, that just a personal comment for my
own taste.

Anyway, thanks for this. Really good stuff.

slick, slick
I love the minimal intro - keeps building, and keeps one's attention focused on that which is going to be delivered next. Awesome reed sound. The spinner, cuica and triangle are right on, kudos ->

Well done.


Hi

I read how this was created Brilliant sounds great !!
Sugestion .
I made a sound out of my household Hoover looking for a good whistle sound for my practice harp train sound not up yet !! These were very well played and Wow again thanks for sharing.Hoover was sticking to the carpet and just sucking the air up in one spot it then began to make a whisling sound. Tip free of charge in case that was one you had not thought of Haha
lol
Very ingenious too and creative.

Peace
Dee.

Outclassed
This is just fine.! This fine song unknown to me at the time, I tried something similar myself with household items on this song: http://www.macjams.com/song/47633

But I fear my effort is nowhere near as refined

This is just great...
