Beefy 6/8 minor key planar micro-epic

Added 2010-09-08 22:26:48

The beginning of the second half of our evening Upstairs At The Ritzy in Brixon on 25 May 2010. Os had a loop going during the interval. When we sat back down I asked him to set a new tempo. Ah, he said, something very weird is going to happen if I do that. He did, and you can just hear the residual wild pitch shifting right at the beginning of this. None of which has much to do with the rest of the track, a slow but busy 6/8 monster that confuses sadness with hope as only the minor key can. The rhythm section enjoys its slow groove, over which Os massively distorts in the middle, but rather than jarring, it thrills.
