‘All The Wrong Notes’ (#onetakestudy Nº 12)

A quick’n’dirty improvisation—just something to try out a simplified recording and mixing setup. I have no idea if this one is any good. It’s what it is. (At least, as promised, it’s a first-take improvisation.)

As always, please hit me in the comments with any questions… although, as I went into this one with no plan, I’m not sure how helpful my answers might be. Regardless, thanks so, so much for listening!

‘Scratch’n’Sniff’ (#onetakestudy Nº 11)

A short, improvisative meditation on snaps and grids (or should that be unsnaps and degrids?). Simple, modest—nothing at all complicated—but it does exactly what I set out to do.

‘The Zen of, fwiw, Frustration’ (#onetakestudy Nº 9)

The Zen of Frustration, or: ever had one of those days (or weeks)? This is probably as spontaneous as it gets. I felt better* by the end, but, I don’t know, as a listener, does this bring you frustration or relief?

* Autocorrect suggested ‘battered.’ Nice try, but no cigar.

‘Contiguity’ (#onetakestudy Nº 8)

My latest study in the #onetakestudy series is a super simple, quick little improvisation. This one is partly a response to some of the issues I had with study Nº 6. This study does, I think, what it needs to do, and no more. Enjoy.

‘Don’t Overthink It’ (#onetakestudy Nº 7)

I came away from a session with Kaffe Matthews with some fragments of ideas—not themes, barely motives—let’s call them random arrangement of atoms. This study is an unprepared (without even a warm-up) first-run of some of these. Think of it as a soup made from whatever’s at hand.

I’ve taken the title for this latest study (‘Don’t Overthink It’) from an album by Corey Mwamba. (I hope you don’t mind, Corey.)

Kaffe and I are performing on Tuesday, April 23, 2024 at REH (Kopenhagener Straße 17, 10437 Berlin).
