Espionage

Espionage

Split in two halves, the first 7 tracks are written in a classic, mysterious 1970's Jazz style - Think special agents in dark alleyways, hiding under black fedoras. The second half has a more upbeat 1980's Jazz approach, perhaps more associated with detectives wearing Hawaiian shirts and driving a Ferrari.

    Light swung cymbal intro leads into still EP and wah chords on guitar. Bass line gradually develops into improvised 3rd verse, drums become more complex. Break down featuring sub fall, clicks and knocks and a couple of hits. Outro returns to main theme with more consistent, moving drums.

      1. 2. Tickety Boo

        Solitary, ringing EP chords and ticking percussion first, then long mysterious sax notes and regular stops returning to the ticking motif. In the middle, some big stops pre-empted by haunting violins. Drum break into a driving return to the main theme. Dark and tense, but up tempo.

            Hypnotic and gentle piano riff opens with subtle harmonic variations in upright bass. Brass chords enter in 2nd verse leading to dramatic bridge with alto sax melody and ornaments. Dark stop leads in to 2nd bridge – still, ringing EP chords, triangle and ticking clock like motifs. Outro returns to main theme with added sax ornaments for confusion and more hypnotic EP additions.

                Dark, ominous piano and sub bass/tail intro leads into upright bass motifs. Brushes join with heavily reverbed toms. Saxes slur around chords as bass/piano drone continues. Harmonic development and higher saxes play a push/pull/stop section in the middle rising to a climax supported by a haunting organ. Short stop and soft outro with all instruments.

                    EP twinkle leads in to still horns, interspersed with stops. Triplet shuffle brushed drums accompany for second verse. In the bridge a rolling EP motif flows over a developed sax part. Discordant 4 over 3 ending pits bass against EP.

                        Rolling and mysterious piano motif starts solo, bass and drums join for in-tro. Saxes and voices build over subtle harmonic progression towards middle breakdown. Heartbeat with twinkling piano in mid section, drum fill and saxes build back into main theme with improvised 2-sax melodies/harmonies and trills. Piano riff softly leads out.

                                Opens with drifting synth pads; sax on top. Rhythmic synth underscore develops into gentle groove, big drums fill into rockier straight ahead feel with distorted guitars, dropping away into piano themed voices and sax.

                                                        Haunting child voiced theme. Blade runner-esq synth pads with developing bubbling feel, moving into an eerie uplifting groove with ethnic synth overtones incorporating high weaving alto saxophone and child’s voice.
