42.1 MB PHP File - Platform: MP3 / All Pl

Instrumental music in the cryptic-jazz, fission, ambient and pseudo-classical realms.

7 MP3 Songs
JAZZ: Weird Jazz, JAZZ: Jazz Fusion

Some of the musical settings for this album are ambient solo guitar, solo piano, structured improvisation, as well as composed pieces. I used Jim Stewart's improvised drumming on some sections as a foundation for building a piece with keyboard and/or guitar overdubs. I'm influenced by everything and especially folks such as Igor Stravinsky, Bela Bartok, Aaron Copeland, Frank Zappa, Miles Davis, Robert Fripp, Keith Emerson as well as a lot of the artists that record for ECM records.

Andy Seniska: guitar, rhodes, piano, pipe organ, synthesizer

Random Notes: Unconscious flux is supposed to be the shit that flows from the unconscious mind into the conscious mind. Sloot is a mysterious entity that resides in Abbey Lake next to Sylvan Abbey cemetery in Safety Harbor, Florida.

Review (or fluffing that ego section)

Fans of modern jazz guitar, as opposed to what might be called avant-garde or noise guitar, will find Florida's Andy Seniska an appealing player. Those who have visited the gorgeous Tampa area may imagine a shimmering light in his playing, as if each of his superbly executed electric guitar passages, dampened by volume pedal tapping, was skimming out over the bay and tickling herons under the beak. Some of his slower pieces, such as the title track, bring to mind something else entirely, however. With bits of synthesizer fragmented in, this piece could fit into the soundtrack for the film Carnival of Souls.
The best tracks consist of exciting interplay between the guitarist and an eager rhythm section, as ought to be the case with this style of music. The leader is equally effective on keyboards and guitar. Even when an opening theme lacks much of anything to either remember or inspire, the guys are up and cooking, percussionist Jim Stewart the sonic equivalent of a buffet chef with a solution for every gastric problem -- including what sounds like playing a gong with an uprooted parsley plant. A fine bass track comes from someone credited as Placebo, adding another name to the odd list of bassists with one-piece stage nicknames ending in the syllable "bo."
