DOCTOR BIZARRE: Electric Slide Guitar, Arrangement

EANBARDSLEY: Nylon String Acoustic, Composition

Ian used the flamenco tango form to compose some arpeggios and strumming, which is to be distinguished from the Argentinian tango, a sort of traditionally
proud sounding slow 4/4 time. I used Phrygian Modes to explore Middle Eastern music in a cross-genre endeavor. Cover art by Doctor Bizarre aka Millustrations.

takes us on a journey into the far reaches of the cosmic mystery in the far eastern perspective, with all of its depth and penetration into its unfathomable nature, utilizing his extradinary ability to create the most supernatural of sounds, through his virtuosity and mastery of the guitar, of musical instruments. Great work, it has been a real honor to be a part of its making.

Very Bizzare combination of strings and synths indeed.

Well, I was looking for a nice change in listening genres ;-D

never fails....I think you are sound one way and you end up doing somthing very different...The only thing I can say is the box guitar sounds a little thin. But man!!! The lead is great..Adrian Belew like.

more juxtaposed trippiness...
Ian, great acoustic guitarwork... old-world reality, slowly getting engulfed by the buzzing panned spacey weirdness of Biz Lightyear's electric guitar stuff... not too sure I understand the message(s), they didn't exactly go together well, and the constant panning was a little distracting from getting into the mood... but it definitely pegs my weird-o-meter, so if that's what you were going for, uh, it worked. :-) I think you could put some more effort into developing/melting the spacey sounds into what Ian was doing though, it just sounded like two people doing two different things... play off each other more.

A clash of cultures
I kinda like the contrast of the conventional (the very nice Spanish guitarplaying) and the unusual (the very freaky Bizarrelandic guitarlines and effects).
In all honesty, sometimes it gets a tiny bit too freaky for my taste - a bit like it's just weird for the sake of being weird, and at those times (they weren't many, mind you) it didn't do it for me.
However, the idea is kinda cool and both of you are talented guitarists - there's no denying that - so this does have it's high points. I especially like it about 1/3 into the song.

Kudos to you, gentlemen!

i normally
dont comment or listen much to your music. I was interested in this from the description. I gotta agree with drakonis on this one...both parts are interesting enough, but they have no connection to one another. It is musical jibberish. Disappointing. Again your mix sounds really flat and one dimensional, even with the constant panning. I think it's back to the drawing board Dr....maybe find some common ground between the space guitar and the earthly nylon string.
Right now, there is no communication between the sounds...like two people playing different songs. Or talking in different languages.

I know the local state colleges around my part of the world have rudimentary recording classes. You should look around the syracuse area for some, and take a course or two. There are whole areas of sound available to you to make your music sound more alive. You seem to be stuck on a single sonic plane, and I bet this would be really helpful to you in moving your music forward. Help you add some depth and feeling to your stuff. The recordings of yours that I have listened to, all suffer from the same flatness of sound. Some professional help in learning how to add fidelity and spirit, that might really be valuable to your future projects.

I really like the acoustic playing... and the electric sounds cool... sometimes it reminds me of Adrian Belew. I agree with some of the other sentiments that they don't always mesh well; it works in places, but often it has that 'two-recordings-going-at-once' sound, without much connection. On the other hand, that was weird, and weird is never all bad.

- is the kind of track that would inspire me to drop music for a while and make an accompanying animation - thats a compliment but not an offer as I haven't got round to making any for ages.Cheers RG

All we need is a video of you Belly-Dancing to go with it.... :-) The electric comin' in at the end was cool, too.

lovely wash
of nylon acoustic..

a stormy marriage between psychedelia & spanish delicacy..
the combination is very liberating and inspiring.
especially liked the sense of space that comes from the treatments.
thanks for sharing this doc..

I picture the shimmering desert heat in the city of Sevilla, Spain, as it bakes under an unrelenting white August sun. Excellent! On an extended version you could add some Flamenco clapping and feet stomping coming in at the end (in an eerie, distant kind of way). Top marks!

spaced out...
...but very nice. I think the combination of disparate ideas is an interesting one, & creates a space that is unfamiliar, which, (in my books) is a good thing...you're never scared to experiment, so, all creedence to you Chad!

This is a freaky track alright...sounds a bit like Michael Karoli from Can jamming with Segovia. Interesting concept!

doesn't work for me
like the acoustic part, but the electric just seemed like something that was layered on top of it without any sense of composition. I can appreciate the lead playing, and it would probably sound great on its own, but IMO it just doesn't work with the acoustic. Also, the lead sound is a bit too fizzy and staticky and the incessant panning seems a bit gimmicky to me.

I would love to hear the lead with a different backing track - I'm sure I would very much like it in a different context.

Strangely compelling hybrid. I have this imagery of Ian as Snake Charmer and Chad as Shrill Viper. It all happens in a cave south of the equator and east of the prime meridian, where whirlpools spin opposite those in the northern hemisphere. All that is missing are the groans and incantations of Fat Tube Radio Salesman.

Excellent synthesis, men.

I like your nylon playing here. i like your playing, repetetive but progressive in a way. I have to listen to this again, the guitarplaying made my ears addicted...

Sonic Collision!
Ziti's point about fattening up your production is probably well taken, and I, too, think the panning toward the end is little bit gimmicky. But your willingness to crash those two tracks together is worthy of applause! I really enjoyed this, and hope you do more like it.

the electric jammin with the nylon is a great contrast and the spacy touches are right up my ally.
