This is a piece that uses MOTU Ethno 2. All but percussion and voice were performed my Fender Mustang and midi recorded via Roland GR-20. The piece uses the Almak tuning included in Ethno 2. [Amlak recurrent sequence (x^2 = x + 1/3), as a matrix for Ethiopian scales]

Debbie’s voice over used an Alesis mixer and a vintage 1950s square tear drop microphone

Cool tuning. I've never heard anything like it. Nice work Debbie! The percussion is just perfect for this. The left channel "swampy" guitar towards the end rules!

been humming the main motif all morning long.. - and i thought, some vocals would be great on this, something of Tom Waits, or CharlElie Couture..

never heard of ethopian scales..heard of gypsy, japanese, mixolydian, lydian, ect. This is yet another interesting creation from you.
