Le Mystére des Voix Bulgares – Пиленце пее (Pilence Pee) [arr. Miguel Falcão’s “BEBE”]

Pilence Pee (Пиленце пее) is my latest musical adventure. This song features a traditional Bulgarian choir arrangement, adapted by me to an ensemble of bass instruments. Sometimes an idea is just an idea… the idea of making this arrangement has been haunting me for the last 8 months and for 8 whole months I workedContinue reading “Le Mystére des Voix Bulgares – Пиленце пее (Pilence Pee) [arr.

Amazing Grace

While I am preparing myself for what’s next to come, I decided to treat myself with a new effect pedal, which resembles Chris’ legendary fuzz tone of the Gibson Maestro Brassmaster – the Malekko b:assmaster (that’s no typo;).

This Music is part of me since I long ago came across its 1st vinyl, released by 4AD. Only some years back I had the great priveledge ofContinue reading “Le Mystére des Voix Bulgares – Сватба (Svatba) [arr. Miguel Falcão’s “BEBE”]”

Vi (i saw) [improvisation for Fender VI]

This piece of music came along one night after some noodling on my Fender VI. I left the tape rolling just to save some ideas flowing by. I just played what was going on inside me. After I heard it, I thought it made sense to keep it as a solo improvisation. It’s something IContinue reading “Vi (i saw) [improvisation for Fender VI]”

This song is still, though vaguely, Yes-related as it was my contribution for the alt.music.yes CD called “Cyberian Khatru”, released in 2000. The bass tuning was inspired by Chris Squire’s Ranney 8-string, with a slight change on the top string:Continue reading “New Pictures”
