Some Hackdaddy music for your Friday. Original Liner Notes are below; here is some additional information for the ADD types who can't stand listening to more than 15 or 20 seconds of a track before deciding that they know everything about it and and whether they like it or not. Here's what you will miss:
:00 The track begins with a bass solo.
:42 Drums join the bass and they build rhythmically.
1:24 Atmospheric synth washes, solo synth statements and additional percussion.
3:08 Energetic, driving section with brass punches, rhythmic strings and more solo synth.
4:10 Recap of the atmospheric section.
5:06 Final short statement by solo bass.
5:21 The track ends.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
"Liner Notes": 7-11
7-11 is the first of what I would call a concept project; that is, creating a project based on a particular idea or “rule”. In the case of 7-11, the “rule” is that every measure is either 7 beats or 11 beats. Sometimes it’s 7/4 or 11/4, and sometimes it’s 7/8 or 11/8, but it’s always either 7 or 11. This concept, as you might imagine, is deliciously ripe with the rhythmic interplay often found in a Hackdaddy project.
7-11 turns out to be a bass feature, with solo bass bookending the track, as well as being a prominent driver throughout the track. There’s also some synth features to go with brass punches and ethereal strings. 7-11 is more or less an arch structure as far as material; sometimes slow, sometimes fast, but never half-fast (ba-dump-bump). Also, I want to be crystal clear that this track has nothing whatsoever to do with the convenience store chain of the same name; it’s just a coincidence.http://hackdaddy.bandcamp.com/track/7-11
