"Adagio Fishing" is a group of compositions done
awhile back (1994). Recorded into an old 4-track
machine, who has since passed on, i've decided to
pitch it out there anyway. I still like it. Tonewarts and all.
Instruments used are of the period: a couple of digital
keyboards. Wooden drums. Short wave radio.
During that time i was experimenting with superimposing various physical geometries found in
Nature over different tone mandala, to map out patterns for harmonic progressions and melody. Flowers, skulls, leaves, photo of a slithering snake path through sand, a human hand, bird tracks in mud, anything that beckoned really. Why not an old shoe or a ladies bikini bottom? Well why not? Take a ride on this Mandala baby. Kind of a backwoods musical Glass Bead Game of sorts. I was reading books along the line of Sensitive Chaos by Theodor Schwenk and The Power of Limits by Gyorgy Dozci, trying to conjure inspiration and direction from such writings. Cut me a slice of the Golden Section please. Correlating the vibe. A vibes indigo. F is red. C is Green. Harmonic crumbs through the dark forest. Anyway, a few of the compositions were involved in this kind of formula making.
Turn it up. Tweak your system. Enjoy it if you can.
I have composed three other Albums, some containing Schizoid Zither compositions. They can be found at: CDbaby.com/davidmichaelmoore
