Level 3: Warp Drive
This song was written for a purpose. This song was written
to be played by a band. This song was written to be played by a band I
with called mamarazzi. While
improvising alone at my keyboard, I came
the two contrapuntal lines that open the song. From there, the song
stages where I would work on it at my keyboard/computer, present what I
the band, and then rework it. mamarazzi
will release a decidedly less
video-gamey version of this song on our forthcoming album later this
This song is part of my everlasting mission to make
"complicated" rhythms intuitive enough to listeners that they can
dance to the music without thinking about it or knowing what they're
doing. If you know how to count beats in
first part of the song is "in 5". The second part of the song
involves a variation on that same theme in a different rhythmic scheme
you might find a less funky version of in the Balkan region of Europe.
Thanks go to my
Gergely Kiss for turning me onto that wonderful music.
I love all of the music on this album, but I think I've
listened to this track the most.
