I often mess with both writing and music, I claim to be no expert of either. One of the things that has always interested me is minimalism. I want to say the most in the least.
Composers such as La Monte Young or bands such as Earth have held a long fasination for me. Sitting with a set of head phones and allowing the sounds to whirl around me, taking me to new places, hearing things that were never laid out in the chord pattern.
The atavistic nature of drone does something to my soul, it soothes it. It was about time I tried something atavistic again. This time I used a lap steel, an instrument I haven’t used before but felt a primal need to mess around with, The result is below, plese feel free to comment.
