Drums, Guitar & Bass (dgb)
The rhythm that is life. You come to life the moment that your heart
starts beating. And, if you are fortunate, it will keep the beat for
a long, long time. But, is that all that life is... a simple... constant beat?
Is the frequency and intensity of the beat what we refer to as
"emotions that are from the heart"? Is the chaotic rhythm
of the ventricular system our soul?
This multimedia project attempts to scratch the surface.
Though it is a simple scratch test, the multiple dimensions
of the chaotic system provide for multiple facets. Does
that make it multifaceted multidimensional multimedia?
In any event, here are some basics:
- The project started as an attempt to gather some simple rhythm
tracks with a simple rhythm section:
drums, bass and rhythm guitar.
- The sound was recorded live as part of an experiment
in the benefits of exposure to a wide range of frequencies.
- The music was written on-the-fly as part of an experiment
in chaotic systems.
- Asynchronous events and harmonics are explored.
- The action is presented unedited... in real time... so, that you, too...
A few simple souls gathered in the midst of atrocities... waiting
for the pizza pie to be delivered.

Don't even blink!
- Just When I Thought I Was Fixated....
I'm standing there... minding my own business... when he says to
me, "Mind if I play the bass for a while? You can play the guitar."
As it turns out, this is a perfect song to illustrate the fundamental
principle I seek to understand -- how can I adapt in a fluid situation?
- Stay Hungry
So, we shut the camera's down 'cause we figure the pizza had to
arrive any second. Twenty minutes later still no pizza. This
is where the camera comes back on.
- We're Coming Through... Today!
The cowboys ride off into the sunset.
That's it. Well, that is it for now. Some of these rhythm tracks
will be planted... and, hopefully they will grow.
