"This video is for the three or four people who will enjoy watching it. The rest can move along.
My track 'Around and Back' was originally recorded as a long improvisation. I didn't like the way that turned out, so I used the improvisation as the basis for an organized composition, then re-recorded it using multiple takes.
This video begins at the tail end of the original improvisation. I could tell that it had been a wasted effort, as you can hear in the way I go off the rails at the end. After some twiddling, about two minutes in, I started playing a string pad (XILS V+ plugin) and began a sad, slow improvisation that reflected how I was feeling. The DAW did not capture this audio, but the iPhone camera did.
So this is the impromptu improv shot by the phone. If the DAW had recorded it, I would be presenting it with that audio. But this is all that exists. Sorry.
I just thought it sounded kind of cool, so I decided to share it with the few people who might like it. I don't consider it part of my 'CS-60 series,' so I didn't put that name in the title, and I'm not adding any tags."
