Web

ukulele and recorded sounds

7:20

 

People are confused sometimes that I write music, but don't play any instrument especially well. With Web, I decided to write a piece I actually could play. What resulted is the work for a live performer on ukulele, accompanied by a recorded background of electronic sounds. In this case, all the electronic sounds are from my ukulele: I recorded the individual parts and then altered them electronincally so that this piece wouldn't contain only the most identifiable ukulele timbre. So, all of the bell sounds, etc. were made by my concert uke--see? I told you it was a versatile insrument! :)

 

The recording below is me playing Web at the Treefalls inaugural concert at the Hub-Bub Showroom in Spartanburg.
