Metaphoric Music 1986-1994 is the first "solo" release of Brian Preston, bassist and writer for Freehand, Smokin' Granny, Groove Stream Attractor and Onomata. These tracks are more intimate in approach than the band releases... many different styles here from Guitar Craft Gamelan-style layered guitars to new-age rock to dark pumping bass industrial throbbing. This is an interesting underground sound and is an adventure in listening.
Note from the artist:
"Metaphoric Music Productions is the vehicle for me and my musical endeavors, historical as well as present and future. Metaphoric Music Productions grew out of me acquiring a Fostex X-15 4 track cassette recorder back in 1985. I had been playing in various hard rock and progressive rock bands and was just getting the band Freehand started with David Bollinger. I was in graduate school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at the time and during this period I experimented with many different recording techniques and approaches, as much as could be done with 4 track recording and a few low-tech instruments, analogue delays, etc. I am now using ADAT for recording and a multi-channel mixer (Mackie 16). You may be surprised at what we were able to accomplish on that old 4 track cassette recorder, especially the most recent stuff from the early 90's. Todd Barbee plays sax and WX7 on much of this material. A drum machine and many effects were all put to good use. I used various guitar and bass rigs and effects units, but one that has particular prominence is the Korg DRV-3000, a stereo digital processing unit from the early 90's."
"I have since continued solo recording projects with better equipment (but not computer recording... I do use it some but so far I don't like it so much, even though most of my bigger projects-Smokin' Granny, Onomata, Groove Stream- are recorded, mixed or mastered using computers.) So for the post 1996 Metaphoric Music I am using an 8 track Alesis ADAT (basic black face), Mackie CR1604 mixing console, a Korg X5 synthesizer, the old Korg DRV-3000 stereo digital effects unit and a host of guitars, basses, processors and occasionally an old Yamaha RX15 drum machine. I also have a sitar, baliphon (African marimba), talking drum, doogi, and various other hand percussions."
"The more recent work may be on a second Metaphoric Music album. There are many, many more recordings than those selected for these releases and I am still sorting through material for that release. I enjoy recording in these track building excursions almost as much (but not quite) as the live improvisational interplay between the excellent musicians I have been lucky to play with. Hope you enjoy it if you decide to take the plunge."
