The Ice Cracks But Holds Firm

from Best of Steve Lawson Pt3 (Solos, 2014​-​2021) by Steve Lawson



From the subscriber-only release "Closing In".

Another experiment with the Quneo - this is actually the fourth thing I've recorded using this electric piano sound - I'm loving the combination of that, and running the loop of it into the Kaoss Pad (firstly with a granular filter, then a backwards delay at the end). This is a bit of a departure for me, though the fretless melodic component will be familiar... All the processing is part of the live performance - there's no post-production here...

I'm going to spend a lot more time exploring this combination, but I thought you'd like to hear where I'm up to with it so far!
