Sean Wayland Solo CD


View read count
This is my first “ Solo “ CD. Most tracks where recorded “after hours" at Phil Punch's new Electric Ave studio in Sydney. The piano is a Yamaha C7. Most of the piano tuning was done by Michael Karlberg. I plugged an AKG C24 microphone straight into my motu828 audio card into my laptop. 2 tracks “five" and “rising" where composed more recently (2006) in New York and recorded at “The studio" in Brooklyn. The piano is a reasonably new Steinway “b" and the engineer was Jon Rosenberg. The 2 electric tracks where recorded at home in Australia. “reeks", reeks of Allan Holdsworth to me hence the title. Unusual for me, I recorded a couple of cover tunes. “All across the Universe" is a simple reharmonisation of the John Lennon classic. “The very thought of me" is an improvisation based on the changes of “The very thought of you" on the Oberheim “Xpander". I slowed the form down so that there is 2 bars for each chord.

The rest of the piano improvisations are largely “free." I would bring in sketches of tunes and treat them as loosely as I saw fit. I wanted to change tempo , key etc at will . If I wanted to I would stretch out a few bars of a composition and improvise over it. SEAN WAYLAND SOLO CD
