symbols (all the way) [disquiet0102-sonictinsel]

PROCESS

A random collision of 8-bar loops created in Propellerhead’s Figure app for iPad, royalty-free vocal and wind-chime samples by Mick Fleetwood and three takes of improvised guitar deconstructions of the Jingle Bells’ phrase “jingle all the way” played live over all of it. Assembled in Acid Pro.

This track is a one-minute, 24 bar section of what has become the intro and outro to my cover of Elvis’s “Blue Christmas.” One day, I may release it.

:^D

PROJECT
Tis the season, so we will contribute by creating secular holiday music. Record a one-minute track of loop-able background music that can be described as glistening, reflective, and gentle.
