the vigil event: Mandala of the Four Directions

Posted on | March 28, 2010

This past Saturday, DJ Dubble8 [Erik Spangler] and I went into the studio for the first time to “practice” our live set for the upcoming “Vigil” all night music festival on April 1, 2010. Erik and I come from very different backgrounds in our approach to music and sound so we were both excited while a bit curious how our styles would mesh. Coming to the rehearsal with some gear but no plans or sound map we simply plugged in and began to play. The result were three amazing 20 minute sessions, two of which were unfortunately not recorded. I was so pleased with how this final session turned out I decided to post it and make it available below. If you’re into the spaced out, fractal groove dronescape, this will probably something you’ll like.  Erik and I plan to do some “official” recording over the summer.

Hope you enjoy the track.

*Please keep in mind this was recorded to a solid state Marantz field recorder directly from the board so the fidelity should not be compared to conventional studio recordings.
