I recently collaborated with ARIEL, another Filipino musician based here in the States — New Jersey, to be exact. We exchanged music files via email, to come up with a downtempo song called “Emblues In Repose.”
Lovely how software can make collaboration so easy nowadays.
It’s a relaxing downtempo instrumental — a collaboration between East and West coast-based Filipinos trying to figure out this country. The song is based on a riff and a series of patches proposed by Ariel and expounded on and sequenced by myself. The result is a light, flowing, driving song which is primarily in E-minor. Very west coast, if you ask me.
