"Remember Me Whenever You" (instrumental)
2 of 7 - Tangled Roots Project

This is the second track of the Tangled Roots project. I've always loved the sound and expressiveness of the violin/fiddle in American music, so I tried to incorporate in this tune. It has a little more country/rock/folk influence, where the first one was jazz and latin-influenced.

Background of the Tangled Roots Project: I grew up listening to all kinds of American music, jazz, blues, rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B. When I started composing my own music, even though these many wonderful influences were shaping my compositions, I never worked directly in these idioms. Since my own music is a coming together of many tangled roots, I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and try to write pieces that went back to this rich pool of musical influences.

Hello,

That's quite a pile of RTs smile
Very nice.
The entire sound of this, makes us think of The Dire Straits in their "On Every Street" period.
This will have something to do with the use of the Dire RT.

Good job.

Rob and Anne-Marie

Well put together, but a bit disorienting. Sort of a smooth jazz version of Ives, only instead of two marching bands colliding, it's like moving through the aisles of a large department store, where turn brings you to a different department playing a different song. smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks dcuny - I like the Ives reference, although I would like to think that the turns are at least somewhat graceful. It took me a long time back when in school until I 'got' Ives, and that had me thinking about comparing what he did with, say, what Teo Matero did with Miles Davis.

Anyway, thanks for the listen and the feedback!

Thanks RnAM. I really like the Dire RealTracks playing, and one could be tempted to overuse it... It is amazing how that Knopfler style of playing runs so iconically through the DS body of songs.

I appreciate the listen and the feedback!

I really enjoyed listening to this one. I'd like to echo Davis's comments that there is definitely a classical music vein to this although I thought of Debussy for some reason. Anyway, very unique and nicely done. Cool project.

I like. Interesting arrangement.
Enjoyable listen.

This is a mix that is put together very nicely. An eccentric mixture of RT styles but remained easy on the ears.

Enjoyed my listen.
