Wednesday in Santa Fe

02010-03-17 | Music | 5 comments

This is what I sent to Jon:
Some kind of opening-chord, a mood-setter intro for “On the Road to Shiraz”. An intro to the intro. Something that might sound like dawn in an Arabic countryside w/o being too literal (((i.e. no arabic scale or quarter-tones))). Perhaps a grainy texture, representing sand, but also sweet, like dates and figs.

And this is what he returned:

Isn’t that lovely! And how did Michael figure out where to play the tom-hits at the beginning of the first chorus, when we worked without a click-track and we could not see each other? That kind of wonderful stuff starts happening when a band works well together.

Messing around Wednesday evening…

    Yes, Lovely Description and Music. I like the moss covered stone wall with petal blossoms, and just a suggestion, a softer font for POP and that Ottmar Liebert + Luna Negra, also to be one with the branch and not seperated from the tree branch, as OL+LN would further show the connection of the tree to the petals.
