THE AUDIENTS 2: 1996-NOW


INTRODUCTION

Having the video camera, together with the inclination to play - and, thanks to Rudi leaving one of his electric guitars here (on his occasional visits from Japan), I made some more recordings with Johan. More still followed - often in an acoustic vein - with Johan becoming involved with the "Return of Cool" band.

ORIGINAL MUSIC CDs & CDRs

Any reservations I have about these discs are noted in italics. Example songs - available in RealAudio - are noted in orange, and appear at the bottom of this page.

- Guitar Jams: (see "Jam 96"below) A collection of improvisations recorded between 1981 and 1997, with myself on lead guitar and brother Johan on bass. We're accompanied by an assortment of cheap drums machines. Jam '96 is an example. This recording was taken from a compilation tape - a better sounding CD is possible.1996 Video Jams

- 1996 Video Jams: Recorded in 1996, these two 31-odd minute pieces comes from the soundtrack of a video that was filmed at the family home. For the first track I place fretless bass while Johan plays guitar - we swap over for the second track.

- 22/11/99 - Acoustic Duets: Though it's derived from a mono micro-cassette recording, this jam with Johan has many inspired and surprising musical turns, including some extraordinary Indian-percussion type playing. And at the end , I'm left to play both guitars at once. I will try another transfer of this again later.

- Acoustic Jam - April 7, 2000: A loose jam, with Johan and myself on acoustic guitars. I'm playing a right-handed guitar, so don't expect any fancy fretwork. I only decided to make a CD to test the sound. The 22/11/99 performace above is much, much better.

REAL AUDIO FILE TO STREAM/DOWNLOAD (RealPlayer required to play this)

This file is highly compressed and in mono - the original recording sounds much better.
