Rusted Breath [excerpt]
Sax and guitar duets, long and still. One droney, one relaxing.|
1- Droney but sporadic, if that makes any sense. What sounds like a bowed open "E" string (low one) on the guitar, with the sax adding its own "E" and some major-key variations here and there. A gradual, cavernous sound, but friendly. Within a couple of minutes, you've heard the "trick," and ... that's about it, for the next 18, although Welch does get just a bit more flamboyant as the track wears on. Something about the major-key simplicity makes this sound less "experimental" than other pieces of its ilk; it's like kid-friendly experimental drone, happy stuff that could make a good background or an interesting excerpt. I wouldn't play the whole thing.
2- Slow, ambient guitar arpeggio and floaty sax. Welch again goes for the major-key thing, resulting in something close to new age, or at least friendly meditative music. A Jonas Hellborg sound, maybe? Spell breaks when the sax creates a buzzy, avant-garde drone in the last 5 minutes. Overall more successful and textured than track 1 -- but again, doesn't have to be 20 minutes long.
