September 6th 2019, I just released a new single, simple acoustic guitars and requinto: “Would You Focus Please?”

Recording on the road, at 37°09’01.7″S 56°53’06.9″W
Used what I have with me: the Requinto on the photo (taken on recording location) an instrument I bought in Tegucigalpa 22 years ago that proved to be a nice travel companion and perhaps the worst instrument I own. A real bastard when it comes for tuning and playing comfort.

8 tracks of it recorded with an AKG 451, then I converted one melody track to midi and triggered a lead synth on z3TA-2.
Added some upright bass notes from my vault, notes I recorded 13000 km away from here long time ago, or in a different timeline….

A major, 168bpm in 7/4 time

New EP “Soudain L’été Dernier” 2: Heartbeat of the Jungle

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

Just released a new EP, from my score to the French version (directed by Réné Loyon) of Tennessee Williams’s “Suddenly Last Summer”.

This is  a companion to my previous “Soudain L’été Dernier” EP. The first one is a selection of the main theme, mostly unused masters remixed for that release.

This Vol2 is taken from the more experimental ambient rhythmic tracks, some used on the final score, some re-worked for this release.

These are the most “animal-wild-menacing” parts of the score, remixed and expanded a bit.

Bowed Upright Basses, Acoustic guitars and pianos, percussion, noises and animal/insect samples.
