Gabrielle gave feedback to Ian MacPhail for “Cowblock Parade (Live)”:
Has a cool beat. I think it could be longer-it ended before I thought it would. Fast congas would sound good at the end.

Shoham gave feedback to Ian MacPhail for “Cowblock Parade (Live)”:
Great, great -- more like this -- I can name none of the time signatures. AHHHHH! Sounds live, which I prefer anyway -- is it, or is this studio magic? If it's live, what exactly are the drums that you're using?

Might be my favorite of yours so far that I've heard, except that it's not really long enough...

I've been messing around with some microtonal, microtemporal concepts myself the last week or two. If you're feeling adventurous, feel free to check this one out: http://www.feed-forward.net/w.4328_Celebration_of_Benci_part_1_Warning_Expe_ warning it's a little hard on the ears, heart, soul, etc....

Thanks again :)

Music has and always will be more than something theoretical.
Notes must come from deep within and not be merely alphabetical.
Parch and Vincent Galilei
Gave us more than Do Re Mi.
From Shelly to Pythagoras,
And Keats to Aristoxenus
Reason has two fathers known:
Named, rhythm and his brother tone.
Math and physics are the fruits of roots which run much deeper
(Though modern times consider metaphors and rhymes as so much cheaper.)
While you study architecture and acoustic engineering
Just remember that it's always more than waves that you are hearing.
The music in your soul begets the sciences we hold so dear
Without new melodies and harmonies, no TOEs, I fear!!!

I always think of music as half math and half unknown.

Here's 4 versions of the piece I'm working on, but I'm not completely satisfied with any of them.

I liked the Garageband version -- could use some more syncopation, though. I'd say about 90% spirit and the other half math - maybe 2/3 blind faith, or at least blind melon... Seriously though, our modern sciences miss out a lot by not looking at ancient ritual and tradition -- and by telling religion to just fuck off altogether...

Rewrote the sonnet for you #WIP
