this video may cause dizziness. or vertigo. Video of my commute from my home into nyc. I'm always moved by the texture and layout of the buildings as seen from this above ground subway ride. The graffiti adds a colorful, random element to the vista. If you don't think in terms of real world objects, but listen and view from a textural perspective, everything is shapes, depth, size, form, and color. De-focus your eyes and ears. www.LandonKnoblock.com
I was getting into the colors of the extreme registers of the instrument. Trying to make a sonic landscape with the deep lows interspersed with sparkling highs. After listening to this piece, all I could think about was rocks, water, and caves as seen through a later 20th century tv filter of sorts. And then, creepy people looking very disconcerted by what they are hearing. A friend of mine heard this music and commented"uh oh, something bad is gonna happen". I think that sums it up. The entire piece sounds like something bad is just lurking right around the corner. www.LandonKnoblock.com
I recently attended a wedding. Two very close friends. Spending that special time with them was very meaningful to me; I really value their friendship. I joined them and their close friends and family after the wedding, to hang a bit more. It was a really great night, beautiful warm feelings. I wanted to share those feelings, through music. Although not to be taken as a literal representation of events, this music is rooted in that positive experience.
