This project is music written for an ensemble of mostly percussion instruments.
prev / next
this song is co-written with Wheatie Mattiasich
This song was co-written with Emmanuel Nicolaidis. He also sings the vocal part in this recording. This song was actually written as part of the Golden Age song cycle (in miscellaneous projects). When Ghost Life performs this, Wheatie Mattiasich sings the vocal part.
some working recordings
These working recordings are how these songs are written. unless noted, i play all the instruments myself. when the songs are finished, i notate the parts that need to be notated and are distributed to the players.
The vocal part for this song is represented by a distorted organ melody. Wheatie Mattiasich overdubbed some vocal lines in the beginning. The tenor marching drums, are tuned to the bass line melody. The keyboard organ is mostly playing in a more percussive manner. I was trying to have the percussion elements play more melodically, while the melodic instruments play more percussively.
