Slo-Boy Meets Snakecharmer



 Genre: Ambient

Get Flash to see this player.

This is Scott on snare with brushes, Jason on guitar (way in the background), and myself on recorder and bass. The synth is being triggered by the drum track being run through it. My friend showed me the trick, and I can't remember how to do it. This was all played live; improvised or "jammed" whatever you prefer. I put the recorder on as an afterthought.

I don't know if this is really ambient, but it's not experimental (has a melody and beat), and it's not art rock (beacause it doesn't rock). I wish that there was a post rock genre. This is another melancholy sounding track.

River of sound
The first time I listened to this piece it seemed to go on and on forever. Funny, with each subsequent hearing, it's gotten shorter and shorter : >

Who knows exactly what "ambient" means? I generally think of it as a piece of music that evokes an extended mood - and this chunk of music certainly does that.

But I have to tell you about how it has sounded different every time I've played it. It's a warm May morning and I have the window open in my Brooklyn apartment to catch the breeze. The window is also letting in sounds from the street. These sounds are freely mingling with your ambient groove, so every time I play it again, it becomes something different - enhanced by bird calls, car noises, people chatter, emergency sirens, airplanes, the garbage pick-up, etc., etc., making it into a river of ambient sound - never the same twice.

thanks for listening and commenting.i'm really happy that you like this one. it's really lo-fi sounding, and I can't lay woodwinds at all, but i've always had a soft spot for this one. it's cool that the outside world is infiltrating the song too. thanks man.
