“behind the scenes” – p. ii

at this time you shoud be aware that in D-4 i’ll be releasing “be water, my friend”. today i’ll talk briefly about a another “guy” who plays an important part in the song.

so… some days ago i posted a video with the transformation process. roland tr-8 is the man behind the drums. after a minor tweak here and there, voilà: habemus drum section ready to go! the initial snare was sort of dim, a bit “pale”, not in tune with the presence the snare has in the beat. then i chose a more snappy/clappy one.

there was a 3rd option, which would demand way more time: checking the oldest of my grooveboxes – my beloved dr-202. but i’ll save this for later, as it is already appearing in the bonus track: an abstract/downtempo version of “be water, my friend”. there you guys will see it in action.
