I can't tell you how appreciative I am of these sound clips of yours. I have a friend who has been going through depression and for months I haven't been able to gather the words to say to her. After hearing this piece a few times and really listening to the music and getting the feel for it I came up with a small guide for her. Exactly what I needed to say and more, so you just never know what these rough clips can bring to someone. Nice catalyst for me. Thanks.

Hello Eric,

Thank you for sharing in your creative process, that's very generous of you. I like this piece a lot and the direction that you are going in musically, in direct opposition to the reality show that is presently JA. I would have loved to see JA going on the road that you are traveling, but c'est la vie. There cannot be light without the dark in music, art and life. In this piece the contrast between the brooding repetition in the synth and the raw acoustics of the piano is evocative and haunting. Shades of Max Richter's "Infra" album which melds synth and acoustic instruments. I can see you teaming up with some far out young filmmaker and scoring a masterpiece someday. I hope that you are moving in that direction, you certainly have the sensibilities for film scoring. Just one last question that has always been in the back of my mind: Is that you playing the piano (and perhaps synth) on Ritual de lo Habitual's "Then She Did?" That song is so orchestral, those piano/synth moments so sublime, that I now assume it was your doing. Keep it up, can't wait to hear your next album release. Peace, Jonas

What make and model is your synth, Mr. Avery?

Meoskop said...

That wanted to go with something by Lynch or Satoshi Kon. Lightly ominous but compelling. Interesting.

EA- Love how this Momentary music piece is so cinematic. It also has an amazing balance between beauty and danger. Really great work my man. Thanks for sharing it. So... random question... Star Wars or Star Trek? - Matt

Mike said...

That was inspiring! As always, thanks for sharing EA!

Kevin Langley said...

Thanks for sharing this piece and the first one also. Huge of fan of yours and always interested in anything you're working on musically.

Huh. *Stratches head*
So is that the best you can do Eric because what you posted here is really pathetic.
A nine year mentally challenged kid with a toy casio could do better than this. If this is all you're capable of - - - I would strongly suggest you retire ASAP. For your own good.

sometimes my testicles get real full when i wait to long between intercourse. when pf empties them for me i feel a pressure change and dysregulation in my left nut. my sack feels really swollen for 24 hours after the session where he empties them almost dry. last week lenoble's request for rectal cause the semen to expunge on site. this relieve the pressure to some degree. then the next day pf insisted on homoerotic asphyxiation, topped with rectal delights for desert. after the session the pressure was gone and my testicle feel normal again.

When I first heard this it reminded me of something (other than life in general or a score). It was on the edge of my brain, what the insistant sort of ominous undertone was like.
Last evening I had a second and third mri done. As I was laying in the tube, on the hard surface not allowed to move, bright lights and cold air blowing on me--I heard that sound. And I kept waiting to hear the lilting highs and lows overtop of it.unfortunatly that didn't happen--only in my mind. But it did help me get through, when thinking of a happy place didn't work.
Talk about an unintended outcome for a musical piece! Just thought you would like that.

Would buy an album of you doing synth pieces. It's pretty good.

David said...

Captured my attention and kept it there. Good Job! I like it!
