Jim Graham is a Seattle bass player who enjoys playing all styles of music. When composing, he prefers to express his creativity in the electronic, ambient, atmospheric genres. For this second CD, Jim plays many instruments to achieve sound, textures and mood. Some of the musical, non-musical instruments, and techniques used: bowing the electric bass and guitar, egg slicer, kitchen whisk, computer heat sink, kalimba, cajon, upright and electric bass, keyboards- to name a few. No looping was used- he plays each instrument through the song’s entirety.
1. Connexion: - Sci fi ambient. Visitors arrive to our planet and everyone initially thinks it's a threatening invasion and the end of the world- when in reality it’s a peaceful connection into a new dimension.
This piece was done in collaboration with friends and sound artists Vidar Skaget and Atle Kristoffer Olsen; musically known as Medication Club from Kristiansund Norway. Vidar and Atle also mixed and mastered all the songs on this CD.
