GS003 – Soundscape collaboration with Mikhail Medvedev

Mikhail Medvedev invited me to add some sounds to his live soundscaping and so I duly oblige. But instead of using my guitar, I thought I’d use my six-string bass and do my best to play something complimentary rather than competing with my collaborator. Mikhail is a much more gifted player than myself, so I thought taking the back seat and just adding colour and tone would be a good strategy and I think it works.

The performance from me is one take (obviously) and I had never heard the full soundscape from Mikhail before hitting the record button – so it is an improvisation off the top of my head – hence the duff notes here and there where I think I am going down one melodic avenue only to find it is a cul-de-sac, and I quickly change tack. I found it very exciting and an interesting exercise to focus myself.

But here we have the Internet doing what the Internet does best, someone from Russia working with someone from Great Britain. Clever stuff indeed.

Angel’s Tears [1994]

As I have a terrible cold, I can’t really make any YouTube videos at the moment (unless you want to watch me sniffle and snort my way through them, of course). So I decided to grab my camera and make this little abstract number to accompany the very first piece of ambient music I ever recorded.

The track is called “Angel’s Tears” and it was recorded in 1994/1995 – I am not sure exactly when – and it features the Roland GR-1 guitar synthesiser. This was before looping or delay pedals were added to my sonic arsenal and so it is just me using long sustained pad sounds and lead lines. There might be one layer of overdubbing. I can’t remember. I doubt it because it was recorded using my Yamaha MT4X four-track cassette recorder – so I would imagine I recorded it as live as possible.
