Straight Eighth Drone Groove
Aggressive heavy melodic modal chart. Open sections for soloists with option to add backgrounds from other parts of chart [added in live versions of recording] and bass solo with “Cue” backgrounds. Solos are open and motivated by vibe with suggestive chords. Half- step rubs in 2’s and 3’s are key element in the chart.
Time is a measurement of our perception of the immediate; it appears different based on where we are in time (i.e. "past", "present", "future") and each listener's perception of sonic memories is different based off their awareness, even though it all happens in the same measurement of "time.” Commissioned by West Ranch High School.
