Confinement Duets, April 2020

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)

During the pandemic Covid19 (march/april/may 2020) we have to stay home and avoid contact with people.

I’ve found a great hobby without leaving home: collaborating through the internet with fellow musicians who are also locked up at home. They perform on their instruments, record and film themselves, and afterwards, I put it all together, along with my part, in video format. I am compiling these collaborations with friends from different cities in a YouTube playlist entitled:

 

CONFINEMENT DUETS YOUTUBE PLAYLIST

 

 

So far I have uploaded four collaborations (Norberto Pedreira-Paris; Gustavo Bulgach-Los Angeles, Miguel Yanover-Montreuil), but there are others in the works that I will upload in the next days. You can subscribe on Youtube or follow me on Instagram to be automatically informed of the ones coming out.

Be patient and please take care,

DD

Some collaborations on the Junto challenge Week 3, adding to other people’s tracks.

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)

Hi, after some fellas  submitted tracks to last week to the 429th junto challenge, I made some contributions for the 431st junto:

Daniel Diaz: bowed upright basses & filters (on original track)
@MarcoLucchi; mellotron é & synth
@michel-banabila: Synthesizer

My first contribution to this collaborative challenge, based on Marcolucchi – Der-steppenwolf that’s Marco’s collaboration with michel [banabila](llllllll.co/u/banabila) adding to his track [Michel-banabila – Fase-1-disquiet-0429-solitary-ensembles](Michel-banabila – Fase-1-disquiet-0429-solitary-ensembles)

This one really liked and puzzled me, there’s a mysterious modulating sound and performance on the mellotron that reminds me of Gregorian chant, even if the sound is no “voices” but more like a string-harmonium sound. But it evokes a bunch of ancient Greek monks on acid , recorded on an old Geloso (what won’t I give to lay my hands again on my mum’s old Geloso that served as my first experimental recording device when I was 6 ?) Nevermind…
Thanks to Marco and Michel for their inspiring track.

_______________________________________________________________________

For this one I worked over this track by @encym
Encym – Oozes-two-drones-looking-for-companydisquiet0430
That is a collaboration with this original solo by @joe-mcmahon
Joe-mcmahon – Where-i-was-drone-only-disquiet-0429

I performed synthesizers (MicroKorg, Emu Vintage Keys) to add some more “regular “musical content (melodies, harmonies) to a drone track that sounded very musical to me, it was difficult to catch in terms of my reactions to it, it sounded abstract and musical, cold-experimental and warm and sensitive, very inspiring one.
I know I made it more “cliché” standard and less mysterious to my ears, but that’s what I had to add anyway, it’s ok.

_________________________________________________________

This one’s a more standard track, with bass, guitar, drums and an overdub of accordina.
I performed over @howthenightcame ‘s track Howthenightcame – C-disquiet0430-ryan-scott-mattingly
That was his duo over @ryanscottmattingly ‘s Ryanscottmattingly – Rabbit-food-disquiet0429
I played standard rhythm section (upright bass) over the basic guitar+drum track, then added an Accordina improvisation over it.
It’s nice, melancholic, it was a pleasure for me, cheers
dd
