(2016) Heart-Drive


This piece is about fusion of very different musical elements and styles.

I have an affection for impressionistic, quasi improvised instrument soloa, you can notice that, for example in the guitar solo passage of the song “EO”.

Here I recorded a short song with the Korg Karma, using piano, guitar and strings.

The introduction is deliberately decorated with Ritardandos and accents, because I did not want the arpeggios sound too much “looped”, the repetetive element should be reserved for the second section.

As in the song Q-Chord, modern sound forms, which some would rather describe as oblique, are quite attractive to me. Here, in Heart-Drive, a noisefield sound is used for transition to the Goa-like second part of the song. This sound comes from Native Instruments Reactor. From now on, a sequence of a Behringer BCR2000 with Zaquencer firmware takes over, which controls a Waldorf Blofeld. The Blofeld with his metallic clear sound supplies all Goa sounds, except for the shutter chorus which cam from the Ableton Studio DAW.

The song ends with a variation of the impressionistic beginning part.

Has been released by french Label Alter K on streaming platforms.
