about

The original Free Play Album: shnabubula.bandcamp.com/album/free-play was released exactly 4 years ago today. It was actually very important in my development as a composer, going through the experience of adding layers onto pre-recorded improvisations. There's a huge amount of freedom in having an unchangeable framework upon which to build and the process of making the original album REALLY drove that home for me in a profound way. I personally feel it forever improved my ability to write music.

This album contains all of the original 9 Free Play recordings completely unaccompanied, exactly as they were when I took them home from the studio to begin the work of adding layers. The album download also has a text file with a few more thoughts about the process involved as well as tempo information for all the tracks so that anybody who might be interested can try their own layering or just have some fun playing around with the recordings in a sequencer.

Along with the Original 9 recordings, there are also the 4 which were released elsewhere after Free Play, and 3 never before released recordings from the original Free Play sessions.
