Modal G

02/03/2011

Here is a very short clip of music created with the aid of my Pd looping patch discussed here.

I’m not going to go into masses of detail about the circumstances of me making this short piece but I will briefly explain that it is inspired by La Monte Young and consists of me repeating some very simple guitar phrases over and over again.

The guitar used is tuned in a ‘modal G’ alternative tuning and is what creates the ‘droning’ feel of the piece. I also feel there is quite a sweet ‘air’ to the piece if that makes any sense.

My new found love of alternative tunings will most probably be cropping up in a few more posts to come.
