“FAREWELL PLANET ONE” classical guitar and piano impro

“FAREWELL PLANET ONE” a classical guitar & piano impro this morning – with only one, hardly noticeable bum note!

A track from my music album this year, ‘Garden of Stone’, a mix of ‘outside the box’ analog synth setup, melancholic guitar, chilled electronica, harp, Akai EWI electronic wind instrument and other acoustic elements such as piano and clarinet.

Improvisational odes to a dying world, naturally and socially, reflective, it’s been good well it lasted folks… longer versions of some of the tracks at garyphayes.com –

Oh and a misplaced hammer will do that to your left hand fingernail – a few more weeks to fully replace itself 🙂

The Electron Analog 4 is used for two sequences, main bass and lead with strings, the Roland System 1 for pad and various sequences, the strings are from the Warm Pad preset on Ensoniq MR Rack and finally the Kaoss Pro for leads and analog colouration. At full instrumentation there are six sync’d sequences. The audio has been mastered through Izotrope Ozone.
