about

Created and Recorded on the spot,July 10/11 1999, I recorded as I made it up.stream of unconsciousness ;-). Rick Amos and I played a duo called 2ez since 1981. Rick got a EHX 16-second delay in the early days and would form arrhythmic tonal clusters that we would play and improvise through. We did not use the loop as a linear device. In this set of recordings I do not loop the drum, as the loop offers the pulse and cadence. I create different layers at once and loop back to fill in spaces. This is more intuitive and free form. I just loop and intertwine the joy.

Track Name: Leaving Twin Bluffs
I am attached to Twin Bluffs. When I left to go to FL in 72. I related to the song "River" by Joni Mitchell"It don't snow here, It stays pretty green, I'm gonna make a lotta money,gonna quit this crazy scene....I wish I had a river...I could skate away on. I got to Orlando in Nov 72 and was alone by December.
I grew up ice skating and also biking out to Twin Bluffs.



I made the "CD" during July 10/11 1999. By playing into a cassette recorder ,making everything ,words,music as I played. Some songs were scat singing,some the words evolved. the start of this song has just that second or two of the words starting to form from just vocal sounds,as the image of the bluffs and my decision then to leave them and go out into the world to follow my dreams.

here are the words:
send them all up send it all away, pack the rabbit,send the baby, send them all away, take the chances, find you a map new directions, take the sack ,make your baby, take the map,grab your bag and go away, dont look back,dont you look, dont you smell the air dont you breathe in the wind, its behind you now,pack up your bags and make your way...make your way.....make your way
