Another exercise in excessiveness. A double CD of Torchesque pieces. This release is
the premier of the Javanese Gamelan set. Civets
Tango is an exercise in editing even though the noise sections appear in the proper place
on the multitrack. Automation would have been helpful for that song. CCC was being mixed
and I thought it lacked something. Fortunately a solid Seattle rain storm had hit and after
toying with several mics and mic positions, the rain was recorded to give the song the Calcutta
monsoon flavor it deserves. Apna Desh and Rookoobay were originally released on the Apna Desh 78rpm
but with different processing. Kickin the Dragon and Ghost Ghat Tresspass/ Sussmeier are live cuts from the Off Ramp in Seattle and Bottom of the Hill respectively. Eyvind Kang plays violin
on the latter. In fact, a portion of Sussmeier appears on Kang's 7 NADE's CD for Tzadik.
Cineria Blue features a swinging microphone technique which allows the recorded
sound to fly randomly within the stereo field but with much more abandon than is possible
with a simple pan pot. I don't want to give away the mic technique directly but I can say, "Boy
are my arms tired". Shin Paku and Maybe I'll Kiss and Die a Fool is from the ./scg/torch.html">Torch of the Mystics sessions.
