This Week's Idea

Got kind of sidetracked from the other direction I was taking this idea. However, I was playing the basic chord melody on acoustic guitar and thought it sounded interesting more stripped down. Note that the beat is pretty much just for timekeeping, I doubt I'd keep it like this.

Working some things out

So I'm trying to get back to writing and playing after being sidetracked by babies for a while. I'm trying to make things quick and simple so I got an interface for my phone so I could play and record on it.

Below is an idea I'm playing around with to get used to GarageBand on the iPhone.

No One is an Island

It's a similar title to a Thomas Merton book that I love, but this is something else entirely.

I wasn't familiar with Berangere Maximin's music until recently when I downloaded her latest album No One is An Islandwhich features, among others, Christian Fennesz and Rhys Chatham. The whole album sounds great, but I was utterly floored by track 6, Where the Skin Meets the Bone. Fans of trumpet and electronics will see what I mean. 

I couldn't find a version of this that I could embed or link to, but the rewards of seeking out this music will be great indeed.
