Create a Space in Your Life
Today’s musical track is a more developed arrangement of a meditative track previously feature here in the T. Scot Halpin Memorial Blog. (______) This tape came from a reach into a frigheningly large bin of tapes that have absolutely not notation on them at all. I am so glad I found this tape today. I was hoping I would.
This track was recorded in 1988. It is part a symphonic sequence that Scot laid down in response to work by Shakti Gwain. Sorry about the flex in the music midway. These are old tapes. This is Scot on all tracks. He has programmed the drum machine, this is his bass line, these are definitely his vocals and guitar leads. On top of that, these are his words.
The artwork for today is day pen & ink drawing extraordinaire. Nice fat watercolor paper as witnessed by the juicy deckled edges of the left hand side. Acrylic transparency, more juice with the wet-on-wet washes. Patterns, shapes, reverence. 2003.
