Part three of three - with real drums! [more inside]
Just an experiment of guitar electronic fusion I've been playing with. I'm planning on doing an album-full of these types of songs soon.
Fusion confusion. The meshing of musical genres found in this Ummagma track represent a fusion, reflecting the confusion that is so commonplace nowadays in this world - simply absurd and rising. Hence the name Upsurd.
Eastern Europe has long been known as a mysterious place when it comes to music, spanning multiple genres, including music with a particular ethno-folk component. This is one of those songs. Well done Ummagma. [more inside]
This track makes it a lot easier to imagine how the classical work of J.S. Bach could be meshed into a dreampop track, something that is rarely seen or at least, that is rarely pulled off well (The Verve and The Farm come to mind as other successful cases of this happening). [more inside]
Sometimes various musical genres blend together to create something fresh and brilliant - the old with the new, analogue with digital, with styles and sounds intermeshing to create a new fabric. That is what we were after with this song, which has got to be the Ummagma song that leans most towards folk-rock. A little hiatus from dreampop. [more inside]
Indietronic ethno-ethereal fusion is how I would describe this Ummagma track, which is the first Ummagma song you've heard here with male vocals. I feel like this tune has a strong gypsy fusion lifeline running to it from some mysteriously brilliant source, call it what you will. :) Once again, any feedback is appreciated. We've also ventured into indietronic a little here.
Astral Funk from my improv trio, Carbon 7. This is what happens when you let the drummer set the theme of the jam. [more inside]

this time the bass and almost all the drums were generated - and i improvised e piano and guitar over it - guitar played through an electro harmonix ring thing, sometimes fairly straight, sometimes twirling knobs to see what happened
Very experimental electronic multi-genre bipolar worldbeat or something. [more inside]
A little bit of Jazz topped with a few blues riffs on a funky little plate placed on a table of natural ambiance. [more inside]
I was flipping through an old binder of songs I wrote in high school and came across this instrumental. I saw some potential there and decided to record it. Twenty years ago, it was supposed to be a fusion thing, along the lines of Hiroshima. I opted for something a bit harder instead.
A Van Winkle side project, Kurt Kostokos on guitar and drums, and Dave Appelbaum on keyboards. Definately of an exploratory sonic nature...

So, here's the deal. I'm very drunk, and I've just cpme bacl frp, hosting a party at my girlfriend;s house. And I want to post a song to you humans. Amd. tjpigj ot5 ,au b3e and p;d spmg. I dn't feee; it is not wprth menntionings. It is called "Qipheyo". And I don't know what that word means. It's a little reggae, a little mariachi, and a little drum 'n bass. And I'm a lot drunk.
"Ocean" is an instrumental track from my recording project, James, Not Jim. It's a smooth, melodic, jazz/fusion piece that features electric bass guitar. Some more extensive recording/performance notes are here. Hope you like it. If you do, there are two more tracks over at myspace.com/wheatdesign.
I'm here to move your booty. (From 1999 Planet Vinyl album - booties were moved and the band had nothing left to do.)
