My friend Kevin sent along an MP3 file this morning, with the comment:
Attached is a piece I recorded at Perry Williams studio last fall. I thought I’d offer it as an opening theme for your podcasts.
(I was chatting with Ray Brow while he was organizing the Eric MacEwen benefit and he said, “why not write a piece for Eric”. This popped out a little bit later and I called it “Big Eric MacEwen”.)
FYI, it’s two-tracked with three simultaneous chanels (two mics and the instrument plugged in) and then over dubbed (once) with the same three chanels but with the capo in a different position. The “magic” comes from Perry, he has techniques that brighten and separate the channels. He really is a sound chef.
Consider this a “toe in the water” podcast of the song, with thanks to Kevin for the generous offer.
