Alfred & Omar

Final Version Release Date:

TBC [Before 15 August 2022]

Alfred & Omar 

This fret heavy instrumental composition features frequent use of both hands on the fretboard to tap out the melodies as well as a beginning & end that mirror each other to create a sort of bookends structure. 

I started writing this one back in 2015 and it was intended to be released after the Echoes EP, on an EP with Coalescence and 2 other tracks.

In mid May 2022, 8 audio takes were recorded and the most consistent one was used to experiment with different instruments to see if anything could be added. So far, Alfred & Omar has remained a solo piece - see below.

Practice

Rough Mix/Visual Test [June 2022]

- 8 Live takes recorded in total 
- 1 Good take with small edits used

Experimented with other instruments, but nothing recorded (so far).

Little mixing has been made so the audio is a bit rough around the edges.
