This piece is built around and inspired by my musical friend Fred Holland’s lovely composition, that he created from layers of sustained guitar ambiance. Fred had been experimenting with the concept on his own and sharing the results when I asked him to send me something specifically to mess around with. As usual, I had no real plan or idea.. Again, it always amazes me how the work evolves into its final state. My last project had me restricted to a specific group of samples for a few weeks. This time I was obviously tied to the one, and I even attempted to *only* use the one, but thankfully decided on adding some other instruments. Trumpet, strings and french horns make an appearance in addition to various chops and manipulations of Fred’s piece.
The video is my own work as well, continuing my experiments with simple light, movement, and texture. All with just a phone camera and free editing software.
As always, listen any which way you want, but I recommend headphones and a comfy chair.
