Just You Wait 'till I Am Sober (LIOLI#09)

Description
(instrumental)

First I want to apologize to you all, because, let's get serious, this isn't music. It's just some weird stuff and I'll explain how this could happen.

Yesterday I was abducted by aliens, they made me drink their extraterrestial whiskey, tortured my loops and dumped me in an unpleasant part of town. After which they flew off with their flying saucer while I shouted at them: Just you wait 'till I am sober. When I returned home, this piece of music came out spontaneously.

Ok, and now for those of you who don't believe in little green men. It's just... me and loops... I cannot leave them alone. Of course there's the obvious fun of pitching them up or down, and playing them with sounds/samples which don't quite match with the idea of that specific loop.

My ultimate pleasure with loops, however, is to create a polyrhythmic piece in which the original rhythmic pattern of the loop seems to change. While actually it doesn't change at all, it's the environment that changes your perception of the rhythm.

So I just put one idea on top of the other and there it is. Well, maybe I was drunk after all.

Very clever human
Next time we abduct you we must find out how you do your guitar parts. That is just good ol' fashioned playin' and it makes the piece.
Good job,
Stephen

Frank Zappa!
Crazy, lunatic shifts and sound changes dancing around the squirrelliest musical demented genius I've heard in a while.

Don't sober up too quickly, if this is you being bent. Pure crazy genius.

Just Wait 'till I am Sober
I like where this goes,,, here and there and beyond the universe. Those aliens dropped by my house the other night too, but all I got was this lousy implant.

rush to the loop
yeah man this is totally different but way good...the coolest thing about this is how unusual yet seamless the various parts are. the tune sounds cohesive but there's so much going on structurally. very clever from a songwriting perspective. i like it alot.

My working title was: Never Rush the Dance Floor. So you're close when you mention Rush.

Nice title, shifting perceptions
I dig the shifts and changes you employ, the intervals in the early variations. As you said, "My ultimate pleasure with loops, however, is to create a polyrhythmic piece in which the original rhythmic pattern of the loop seems to change." This track shows a marvelous sense of variation. However, in the end it seems a better academic exercise than a coherent song, but I think that is becuz of the ending, which struck me as cutting off before something had been resolved or developed. Perhaps a return to the head or something might have made it appear more balanced, more like a "song." Regardless, I dug the intellectual excursive. Thanks for sharing this.
