I started a few weeks ago a little project called Micro Music, where I try to write original music inspired on the images I get from the microscope. I have been wanting to do a jazzy waltz for a gentle dancing ciliate (Holophrya Teres, thanks Bruce Taylor), and yesterday I finally finished and recorded it. 

 

Hope you like it!

Absolutely lovely. Do you record professionally? If it's not appropriate to answer that question here on C-Nights with specifics... please send a PM.  waytogo.gif

Thank you!

 

This was a home studio recording with an Epiphone Joe Pass ii and an old Tascam Interface. Even with this basic equipment, I think this guitar has a lovely jazz tone.

And yes tone is spot on for mellow jazz sound but well 90% of tone is in the playing.

I'm already playing along with the classical guitar :)

Great! Let me know if you need the standard score. I didn't write it yet but I will certainly do it in the next days.

Nono, it's good practice figuring it out by ear.

It fits very nice with the visual, I am wondering, how is that thing moving? are there even more minuscule hairs on the membrane?

Yeah, it's always a great idea to play by ear.

Indeed. This protozoa belongs to the Ciliated group because they use hair-like organelles called cilia to move around. Protozoa's cilia can be seen often under the microscope.

Absolutely brilliant, Javier!

 

Love it! bow.gif

 

I think there's a lot to be said for instrumentals of short duration like this.

Thank you, Kenny. You are most kind!

 

I totally agree with you, there is a lot to think and to plan in such a short songs. I guess some of them are going to be like impressions, and other, like this Waltz, could be themes for longer songs.
