World Askew

7 tracks by Breaking Light

World Askew is an album inspired by the loss of empathy, in our relationships with other people, other groups or "tribes", and the planet we live on. Mostly drone based, it is music to meditate upon all this, and help find our way back home.

Just an experiment from a while back using multiple delay units. I hated it initially, but after not hearing it for a few months I decided there were enough interesting moments to warrant sharing.
I was passing by a darkened church this evening, as the wind danced through the trees, looking though the a window, i noticed a single candle lit, flickering on the alter step, casting a shadow within.. as i pressed an ear to the dusty glass…read more
An afternoon playing with some pads and heavily treated guitars led to this Hammock-esque piece.
I really like Sonny Sharrock's approach to the guitar. It's hard for me to play totally "free" like he could.
The original by Breaking Light is here: http://alonetone.com/breakinglight/tracks/ssum092113editwvideo I loved it and just wanted to add some minor synth/vocal touches and make it even spacier. Thanks Kavin!
Another slow long form guitar improv :)

My evening challenge: compose and record a piece in an evening. Song titles will reflect the time of day when the day's light slips into the darkness of night.
Outtake from the LUCID album.
Another one recorded "live on the fly", so the sound quality isn't great. Also some tonal support from SonicMood program. Pileus is a cap-like structure, like on a cloud or mushroom.
My evening challenge: compose and record a piece in an evening. I stitched together a couple of demos and added a virtual Harry Partch instrument.
another oddity from the answering machine.
Also found on the KAC album "Westward".
