Dan's Toys (ambient)
I liked the sounds in Dan's Toys a lot, but they went by so quickly
in that piece. I slowed them down for this one, putting a lot more
space in between. Plus I was messing around with the idea of 'remixing'.
I'm a lazy composer sometimes. Well, a lot of the times.
The bells at the beginning of this piece (and also Dan's Toys)
came from this strange roly bird-thing that both Daniel and Lian
loved as kids. The bell mechanism was encased inside, and as the 5-inch
bird-thing tilted back and forth on its rounded posterior it made
these sounds. The bass player at the end of this piece and
the end of the original was one of my performer style-models.
Like I said, I'm a lazy composer. I like to let code write my
data for me.
