Hummingbird Mind [instrumental preview] (09.02.2009)
Here’s a partially-orchestrated preview of a song we’re currently writing. Another big toe-tapper, this one, a lovely 6/4 piece, an ode to half-diminished sevenths, and minor ninths, wherever they may fall.
The title comes from a quote from Ted Nelson, created of the original Hypertext project, Xanadu. You can read about it here: http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/3.06/xanadu.html?pg=2&topic. Get through the description of the guy, and you’ll see why he’s a hell of a source of inspiration.
