with Andy: Sailing the Junkyard Sea

An improvisation for oud and slack-tuned guitar performed by my brother Andy and me, respectively.

This was one of a number of pieces we recorded for Sailing the Junkyard Sea at Andy's house in Cambridge, England. Equal parts beer and jetlag from me, I'd be hard-pressed to reproduced my guitar part ever again. I think the guitar was in some kind of drop-C tuning. I keep telling myself one of these days I'll study the recording and arrange it for Twang Darkly to play.

About the Video

The source footage for the video is Thomas Edison produced night footage from 1901 Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. Found it over on the Library of Congress website. Obviously, I manipulated it and did some weird editing stuff to it.
