E is for ... excited.Dan
I'm so elated.Think everyone is ever so entangled.And why everyone is supposed to be earless?St Eve
Based on the samples, I hear some strong Crim influence in "C" and some Beatbox guitar in "E."Is this an intentional extension of those motifs?
Very nice. Will this be available via download? (Sorry if I missed somewhere that it would or wouldn't be.) Congrats to Adrian and the Trio on another great project!
That's not what the Man-Bunny Matrix says!!!!
THESE ARE WORDS WITH AN E THIS TIME!!!
jonathan: the e motif is its own, but the record is meant to share the spirit of krimson.jimbugtm: it will indeed be able as a download in perhaps a month or two. we intend to find more interesting jewels to offer as well.cheers, adrian
One can never have enough jewels.
who is playing keyboards on e?what are the track names? they are not on the cd either...
the keyboard sounds are generated from guitar via something called midi. it allows me to play guitar through the keyboard sounds I create. so even though there are many parts in the record "e" they are all made by just the trio all at once. phew, what a long-winded answer. "e" is actually one 43-minute piece. but I sub-divided it into 5 sections (a,b,c,d,and e) and further into sub-sections when necessary. for example "a" has 3 different sections so one is called "a" one is "a2" and a third is "a3". I really would have preferred to have NO track markers: one big piece. but for those listeners who would perhaps want to skip a certain part I made it into 11 different tracks.they are:aa2a3bb2b3cdd2ee2 clear as mud, huh?cheers, adrian
Wow, cool explanation Adrian. Any chance of us hearing the complete 43 min. piece in it's entirety when y'all play The Bijou on the 21st? PlEasE, plEasE, plEasE. I think that would be a kick-ass way to open the show.
I like DoctorJimmy's idea but if you only do that once, make it the Annapolis show! (Sorry Dr. J)My copy arrived in the mail on Friday but I'm just now sitting down for my first "proper" listen. Fantastic, Fabulous, Fascinating and Fierce. Your Fanatical Followers will Fall down and Flail wildly in Fitful Fancy.(The "e" words had all been used up.)
Adrian, I LOVE the new release! I'm so glad the Slick's were given an opportunity to record with you; the results are more than excellent.I'm looking forward to your listening party in Philadelphia. I have a few things I'd like to give you during the event (some archival material.)
my copy arrived today! i'm going to listen the fuck out of it!
Can't wait to hear this. Power Trio dates in the UK, please!!!
The more I listen to "e" the more I like it. I hear KC in it as well as themes carried over from Sides One-Three. Fabulous stuff and can't wait to hear it live on the 30th! Front row, too. :DExcellent job on this one ABPT!
When 'e' will be available on storebelew or another download shop (iTunes, 7digital...) as aac or mp3 ???eMIL
All I can say is wow, this is fantastic work... how you switch sounds and trigger loops without tying yourself in knots is beyond me, I have a hard enough time just switching pickups or riding the volume knob in mid-song...
Thank you for this new great work, Mr Adrian!Hope to see you again in Milan.Greetings from ItalyMarco
Eeeeegerly awaiting a download option, somewhere, anywhere, please, please?!?(Still awaiting the same for Side Four, far as that goes. Please help those of us with no other means!)
Entertaining !!!r4 dsi
