Song Description

thought i'd explore a little funk. drums are derived off loops, but the rest is from keyboard explorations

Intro a bit
reminiscent of "voodoo chile". then the wheels get to spinnin. This is one of your best grooves. The person's voice is comical in there, rofl. Makes sense to me! Would be cool to mess with autotuning parts of his voice, lol. Good work here. This was very cool!

Nice groove and the juxtaposition with the psychobabble works well. The intro sounds dead on to a guitar, hard to believe thats a keyboard part.

Terence McKenna -
Nice to hear him here. A friend of mine dropped by one day with 4 hours of footage he shot with Terence in Hawaii the year before he died. Excellent jam you have going on back there - nice low clav sound and scratch guitar too. I love the way the end starts to repeat and phase.

came across this excerpt quite by accident... but it all came back as i listened. i recall the ideas behind this and how they are a truly "dangerous concept" as far as the current world power structure is concerned. i remember hearing or reading these ideas quite a while ago. perhaps this is the basis of my shame of the "macho" testosterone poisoned behaviors of some my fellow males. we need to grow up and get serious about our place in the world

oops - TMI?

I know nothing about this genre of music, but all I can say is this is delightful. I'm not even sure why.

is such an entertaining piece of music that backs up that sound bite. You had my full attention. Thoroughly enjoyed your pulling at the mind as if it were taffy. Bouncy, sweet and delicious. Yum.

Funk spoken-word
It's like you're giving an interesting lecture in the language of FUNK. And man, those Wain cat paintings are so awesome and kind of spooky.
