The Lamentations Of Duke Alastair Brookhaven IV
This is the second song in my "Gotta record a bunch of guitar tracks before I leave for Winnipeg" recording session on Saturday (Aug 15). The first song being Clementine Gorge (*44121). This one is much longer (almost 8½ minutes) & seems to explore different territory. This all started with CyanPhase's amazing Sea Cucumber Buzz Machine. It's classified as an "Experimental Effect" in the Buzz Machine repositories & I'm at a loss to describe exactly what it does beyond its ring modulation properties. It's a great machine that I've used for quite a number of songs over the years - most notably on Hot Day Cold Drink from FAWM 2012. You can hear that song here (if you're interested): https://candle.bandcamp.com/track/hot-day-cold-drink
Anyway, this is my Strat, backed by HG Fortune's Astral Dreamer VSTi. I just kept building up the loops and playing - exploring the feeling & building the soundscape as I went along. I'm quite pleased with the result. In fact, I'm listening back to it right now & I'm really impressed at how well it turned out.
And don't ask me where the tittle came from. I suspect my Muse has been dreaming of Monty Python lately… not that I mind
So, now I get to play with some Buzz Machines today It'll be interesting to see what happens…
