MUSICAL EXPERIMENTS by JEFF PHILLIPS
"HAL'S JUST ALRIGHT"
In this Cubase experiment I extracted the introductory drum phrase from "Jesus is Just Alright with Me" by the Doobie Brothers, and layered some old Tangerine Dream in with some of the soundtrack from Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
This "classic" science-rap song was recorded in Boulder, Colorado in 1995, after I'd been contacted by "trilobite consciousness" while climbing Sis Naajini, "the home of the sky people" in the Sangre de Christos.
This piece was recorded by music wizard Ian McAllister in Christchurch, New Zealand in February of 2010. I played Yamaha 7-foot grand piano, acoustic guitar, and real drums. This song also constitutes the beginning and ending portions of the soundtrack to our film "Te Waiwaia Dreaming" which can be watched from the link below.
