Out Of The Cave (El Tala)
I played two charangos, two flutes (bamboo from bali and plastic flutophone from the USA), I sang four part harmonies, I played some percussion: bombo and kuntrun (from Argentina), plastic tubes, derbouka (from Turkey) and a hi pitched filtered percussion loop (that served me as metronome).
The convolution reverb used is from “Buffalo Cave”, wherever it is.

Think about the sort of sound that might accompany, contribute to, or otherwise be a component part of a VR experience. Now, record a short piece of music, up to two minutes, that is about something emerging — something being brought to life, or coming out of a cave, or otherwise coming into being.
I took an old version of a track I published earlier this year, un-muted some unused tracks, removed most of its length (it was 5 minutes long) and that’s it.
It goes like this: the primitive guy is inside a cave, at the 50 seconds mark he steps out, he sings cause it’s sunny, but ... there are percussion players.
Bottom line is: he was better inside the damn cave.
And 2 minute long is too short for this assignment!
