Somewhat in the 'progressive' style, though not as 'lengthy' as many in that genre seem to be…
Bartok's shadow seemed to fly over a few times..

  • Gregorio,

    I like your Jabberwocky piece very much.  I just listened to it again.  It has a special feel about it, and wonderful instrumentation.

  • Thank you for listening Water Bear.  I am glad you heard something special about it!

    I am really happy with the performances. It was unusual for the musicians involved to play this type of music, but they got it just right.


  • ’Twas brilliant, and those silky tones...
          I admired the fiddle while I shaved
  • Thank you Joseph!   (humm, music for shaving.. have you seen, in the Chaplan film, 'The Great Dictator', the scene at the barbershop, where Chaplan shaves a customer to the music of Brahm's Hungarian Rhapsody?  With it's sudden bursts of tempo, and the blade keeping 'time'!..  so funny… )

  • Reminds me some sort of modern noir movie, à la "Sin City" .... interesting theme. 

  • Juan, it's been a while since i've seen 'Sin City'… and can't quite remember the ST.. ) I'll take a listen to the opening theme)…   but i get what you mean - 'modern noir' …  yes, definitely parts of it.. 

    Thank you for listening and offering your thoughts!

  • This sounds a bit like Amon Düül 2. Very good!

  • I really enjoy this. I like the wild intro most. and the fuzz on the guitar solo was delightful. the only critique (and I have to try extremely hard to find one) is the tone of the violin. it gets a bit lost in the mix. should EQ it to try and cut more.


  • Thanks Lennart!   I checked out some of Amon Duul ll.  Yes perhaps 'a bit'.  :)  

  • Mike, I agree with you… It is an electric 5 string violin.. (with an extra low string - C ) .. To me the sound has a combination of horn and violin.. As the piece gets more raucous, at the end of the '1st chorus' , and the violin goes into the high register playing rapidly firing 16ths, - it is lost -- and that part was the bit that connected the harmonic mov't…  It was mixed sometime ago, and although i noticed it then, i ended up trusting the engineer's discretion ..- i might go back and have it remix just for that!.

    Thank you for listening Mike, and offering your thoughts, and helpful criticism.   I am so glad you enjoyed it!
