I woke up this morning feeling bad. it seemed the way the world was and everything there just weren't any sweet spots left. then I listened to this. there are at least 8 sweet spots in the world. and after this. i'm going looking for more.
Hundreds - no, thousands, - jayapala's replays on SoundCloud. And now some of the gems are finally here. As someone very accurately commented - it's like taking a class in guitar mysticism. Let's all take it.
hey! i've performed these pieces with an electric guitar, amp & pedals/electronics, at my home studio.
i tend to record pretty often; sometimes i'm looking for new sonorities/noise, sometimes digging into textural motion & (errrm) "events/gestures", sometimes i think i'm writing, sometimes i'm just practising my instruments.
if i begin recording, it's almost always because i feel a need to simply play with no boundaries (other than the ones clicking in that moment): to simply play.
as thisall's been going on for a long time, i've amassed a hefty bunch of solo bits & pieces; i've chosen these 8 to begin releasing a wild herd of 'em.
these were recorded live, without overdubs.
thanks much for stopping by!, i hope you enjoy this, and peace to you.
