TRAVELLER'S TALES

 

All of these musical pieces have a feeling of travel. Some are dreams and some were composed while travelling. They also have various time signatures creating that sense of being in another place. Each composition tells a tale of each of the places.

1. Nanaho tells of my home Kittani and dreams of a past life as an American Indian warrior.The rhythm is a 4/4,a very earthy feel,kind of ambient-rock.It features vocals and guitars.

2. Maracajau is a tale of a beautiful, fishing village in the lazy,NE tropics of Brazil where I stayed in 1979. It's in a 7/8,a floaty,cruizy groove.The instrumentation is guitars,percussion,fretless bass,vocals,beautiful flutes by Peter Haddock and the exquisite clarinet of Osheo.

3. AIO I composed in Byron Bay, about to depart on a journey north.It's in 5/4,adventurous and dramatic.It has an ambient-rock-fusion feel featuring voice and guitar.

4. Ubud is where I stayed in Bali and composed this music.It's in 4/4 with layers of up to 5 tracks of guitars weaving arpegios,chords and melodies.

5. Far North is a very light,rhythmic piece in 6/8.A gentle fantasy of fairies and gnomes in the rainforests of Far North Queensland,Australia.

6. Ella Bay is a tale of an exqusitely,beautiful beach in Far North Queensland.It's in 13/8, intense and spacey at the same time.It features the emotive violins of Lula and soulful guitars of Tarshito.

Click on the following tracks to hear the music

1. Good Morning - This is a very beautiful, simple track with Sangeet playing sitar in the early morning, to the birds in the forest, at my home "Kittani", Northern NSW, Australia.

2. Gliding Through The Woods - I had these few chords with a very major feel. We improvised together and I returned to add some smooth
keyboard strings, pads and sakuhachi. The vision we both had after listening to the final result was how we chose the title.

3. A Beautiful Day - Sangeet had an idea of the feel of the music. I created a drone on the keyboards building up to a basic drum groove. We developed this until it was solid enough for Sangeet to lay down a track of sitar. I then added accoustic guitar and a few orchestral parts to complete this ambient-eastern-rock composition.

4. Slow White - The slow sounds of whiteness introduce this improvised piece. Gentle, mellow sitar backed by soft keyboards and arpegiated guitars.
 

5. Between Bombay and Byron Bay - This one has a strange scale. Sangeet on sitar, and myself on steel string guitar improvised this one live in the studio. I then layed a track of fretless bass.
 

6. Cheeky Boogie - is a tongue in cheek western boogie with the weirdest scale that always makes me smile and think " Is this for real?"
This was improvised live in the studio with Sangeet on sitar, Nanda Gopal on tablas and myself on steel string guitar. I then played fretless bass guitar.
