Happily bearing no significant similarity to Manos: The Hands of Fate comes the latest from bustatunez, a solo piano joint entitled 'Babel: A Prison of Fate'. Will writes:
"I actually recorded this shortly after the 2007 OCR meetup in D.C., and just never got around to finalizing/submitting until now. That factoid is relevant because it wasn't until that meetup that I realized some people might actually *want* to hear my random and overly-aggressive piano playing! Anyways, I hope you all enjoy it, it's my first "solo" remix project and I'm still getting a feel for things."
Check the links for YouTube shenanigans; Will plays some mean ivories, and I particularly enjoyed his Yoko Kanno-isms from Bebop and elsewhere. Be sure to check out Will's website for greatness - he's even released his own commercial percussion sample library. Respect. In this case the piano playing is perhaps less random and aggressive than one might guess from the artist's description; the intro is downright mellow, ebbing and tiding and doing other flowing, lyrical verbs as well. 2'16" is the "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" part of the performance and the only bit I'd characterize as aggressive, per se. The piece might have been random in Will's head, as I know he can improvise on the spot very effectively, but it sounds deliberate and logical enough to these ears, with steady progression and definitive build. Vinnie says:
"Nice piece, Wilbert. I love your use of the sustain to create some beautiful, complex sounds from the melody. You can listen to any one moment of the song and hear some gorgeous chords gently dissipating underneath the main melody. I also love the difference in tone you get from the quiet parts vs. the louder parts. Combined with the subtle but interesting changes to the melody, chords, and rhythm, this really has a lot of depth."
For a rollicking good time, be sure to read the judges decision thread and check out JJT's film noir opus decision, a definite first. Glad Will submitted this; very emotional playing, with mood & brood - as well as style - to spare.
