There is something primal and hauntingly trance-inducing about the drone of the didgeridu, and I thought it would be a perfect fit for my primally ambient "Ember-Rekindled" piece. When Jason (Didge-Ache) showed up at Macjams, I asked him if he would like to add his didge-playing talent to Ember, but our lives were busy and we couldn't get to it right away, despite his desire to do so. Once we had time, I finally looked at Ember to see what didgeridu note could be played all the way through the piece, and was dismayed to realize that there is no single note that works! It requires two notes played alternately, which is a tough thing for a one-mouthed didge-player to accomplish. So I chose to work some MixerMagic instead. I had him send me two separately-tuned didge tracks (Thank you Jason for your time and wonderful recordings!), for the two different notes. I added them both in, and then carefully faded each track in and out, alternately, to make it sound like two Didge players handing the parts back and forth. I also slowed Ember down a little to my favorite tempo, to give each didge note time to "breathe." The result is DidgeEmber! I would be very interested in your thoughts on how this works. Roxylee listened to an earlier preview and wrote this to me: "I can almost see the dragons flying around in this new universe you've created. It's dawn, and the suns are rising. The night creature sounds are fading as the shimmering light bathes the tops of the giant oaks in the deep forest. The dragons are waking from their slumber, mentally conferring with each other, but I can hear them breathing. When fully awakened, they take to the purple sky and fly off into the distance.. Anyway, that's what I see... Very interesting sound that makes it a story instead of merely a melody."
