A Room Adrift (6×6)

July 2, 2021

Recorded in a single take, with just a few pops removed and a transition or two smoothed out. 6 strings and 6 loops. Perhaps an attempt to find a way for the guitar to stay energized, strings to remain in motion as my hands and fingers have been challenged by health issues that would slow them down and suppress motion.

Listening back, I hear a ship at sea. I’m pretty sure I set out to make something much quieter, much more serene but inner thought took over as well as a generative system with a mind of its own.
