Rollercoaster Binge


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
With some tribute to my father in mind, who passed this year, the rollercoaster is an image that brings to mind his Coney Island child and young adulthood. He would always park the car next to a rollercoaster when we visited his dad when I was a kid. I think it was cyclone or maybe ‘steeplechase’ if there is such a ride??? Memory…funny ting ya know!

The music is from a time, before macjams n loops, and I was (most of the time) the only listener. I played more and
studio-ed less if you know what I mean?

There is hands on mixing going on in this old fashioned and fun way of recording.
This is one of my jams on the song I previously posted “Life is a Rollercoaster”. This version is much older. Anyway here you go.
If you can take this stuff I have another tune, more of an improve, in mind. Tell ya the story on that one latter

I’m Ramblin now…
Peace

I am thankful
for the introductory remarks. I would have enjoyed this improv nevertheless, but the background gives me a way to focus all these conflicting images and put them into a sensible framework. Very inventive things going on. I, of course, especially like the piano licks that are sprinkled throughout. The "concept" of this number is really unique, kind of dream-like and certainly evocative of memories and rich experience.

of creativity I'd say. Some very cool ideas threaded together here. The sounds themselves! sonic gold. Sounds like you had access to a very pro recording facility. Good to see a TD post. Like memories themselves, snippets in images and conversations.

I like it
Very good playing. Amazing how I always feel compelled to add drums to music, but this is very interesting with only the bass carrying the rhythm.

timothy devine said 2844 days ago (December 11th, 2009)
funny you mention the drums
I am sure i used some rhythm to keep me home, but chose to edit it all out
the final thing has so much going on, i probably made it easier to listen to.

Hey you are back
Cool intro mate, those classical sounds are very sweet. I like the way that this flows with a structure, one of my hobbies.
Unique track bro, that bass is crazy, but fitting.
Love this idea of this memory, nice ride man.

Hey Steve
a little secret about the bass in this track
the Roland workstation i recorded on had a feature or fx that turned my fender strat into a bass, i mean it transposed everything for me to bass from lead
I had to think like a bass player and as you can see i had a hard time staying on the first third and fifth
not me i guess
peace friend
thanks for your visit

this is great stuff
All the pieces seems to live their own life, but still it sounds like they fit together. It's like they're just waiting for a way to meet up in a common groove. Like a flock of wild geese, flying off in a random pattern, for in the next minute to make a perfect formation.

Very nice to hear the things you did some time ago. It gives us a bit of perspective of your musical path.

Sorry to hear about your father.

Take care my friend :)
All the best!

gorgeous
great stew of sound, with hard and soft, goofy and grand, powerful and delicate elements relating to each other in seemingly random but probably well thought out patterns. beautifully executed, anne
