Both are instrumentals, and are original to me; they’re on the “Mind” collection.
“Fresco” was originally meant to be about ten seconds long, as an intro to a screencast I was working on; I don’t like the generic nature of a lot of those introductions, so I threw something together that wasn’t quite so generic. It was rejected on the grounds that it was “too oriental,” which I understood but found hilarious.
It’s definitely got an eastern feel to it that is fairly new to me: flatted second, flatted sixth, flatted seventh (the “Hebrew scale,” as I’ve seen it called.) It was a bear to record, not in terms of playing it but in getting the sound to be something like what I wanted it to be and yet clear enough to hear and sort-of enjoy.
“The Well” is a slightly more recent piece I recorded on my acoustic, just noodling around on my front steps. It has some of the syncopation I enjoy, and was a pretty straightforward production: bass, drums, two acoustic guitars (recorded first), and one electric lead.
I hope you enjoy them.
