about

This was originally released under a different moniker, but I feel like I can absorb it into the Sweet Sweater Moves project because when I was improvising at my not-fully-functional RMI 300A electra-piano/harpsichord (run through three effects pedals to alter its brittle and detuned sound to that dreamy and psychedelic sound you can hear throughout), I was evoking wistful memories of the first Final Fantasy and the second Zelda.

It's all freeform improvisations, first-takes, no edits, straight to tape. The RMI 300A laid the groundwork, the upright bass provided counterpoint, and the electric bass tied it all together by indirectly suggesting a beat that wasn't there. It's about the drama and emotion of negative space; tension and release; not just the notes that aren't being played, but also the lumbering boom-bap beats that exist merely as phantoms.
