Going Post

Here’s something that I think is working out OK. It started back at xmas when my bro-in-law played me a riff he’d been working on, which happens to be in a weird time signature. I’ve long been frustrated with the limitations of writing in 4/4, and this thing just grooved nice and unpredictably – I worked it out as a 3 bar riff in 4/4 3/4 and 11/8 – so I offered to have at it and see what I could ruin add.

Being a fan of the epic build, I guess it wasn’t hard to see how it was going to go. I’m not done with it yet but I thought it’d be interesting to post the intermediate mixes here, to see how it (d)evolves. So without further ado here’s version 1.0 of Gut Rub[1] in which I channel all the post-rock I’ve been listening to over the last few years. See if you can spot the bits I need to fix already.
