riding home with you in that cab last night

we're exhausted and my mind is playing games

silently we sit in the shifting light

and i watch you

Interesting, shifting beat.
as well as a voyage through chromatics. Fits your description perfectly.

the same little melody is transformed into 4 modes or scales: ionian, pentatonic, hungarian gypsy minor, whole-tone, and finally back to ionian... afterwards, it made me think of how a person can look so different under different circumstances, thus the title and description

thanks

each scale has an associated drum loop. but the instruments bridge across each scale change to help tie it together.

love your instrument and sound choices in this. that bendy ehru is awesome. interesting, engaging, sensual. love it. very cool stuff. i love how you keep subtly building the piece by adding layers to the percussion. great job!

that erhu is a pain to sequence! i started from the piano track and modified it to sound OK on the erhu. a balky beast, but i like the sound.

thank you

i had fleetingly considered trying to put some words to this somehow, spoken or sung, i wasn't sure. i think it's better without my voice ruining it. instead, i put the thoughts into the title and description

thanks

Like a
(Pleasantly) haunting dream LOL. Great variety of sounds, like ever changing sands.... the same, but not the same..... and that makes it different. Very entertaining, regards M

i can see the late night cab ride. it's as if i can smell the smoke from the drivers cigarettes he smoked earlier (even though he won't let me smoke in the cab). love how you move and twist that melody into so many shapes.

it is a great experiment
such a genius idea. to take a melody and stretch it across different modes. it is a perfect melody and rhythm for such experimentation. the choice of instruments adds much class. you are very skillful at putting such ideas into practice. it is a stimulating idea. it is well produced. it excites ideas for me to try. thank you. 0x0

Good to hear you up to your old tricks again
I love it when you get systematic and then create something organic and exciting like this. You have a real talent for this sort of thing and it's always interesting.

Be careful,
Smokey. She's watching you, too. And something about your cap or your t-shirt is giving her ideas. I found this sensuous. Thank you.
