RIMARIMBA : NIGHT TERRORS
(ALL ABOARD THE GHOST TRAIN)

from the Unlikely Recordings You Tube channel

Dateline URHQ January 2019

Part of a series of explorations of rhythms built from prime number sequences with melodies and harmonies constructed from the D Harmonic Series. Commercial success is therefore guaranteed...yes?...no?? Night Terrors (almost acapella) and (almost a band) are alternate mixes with and without the 'voices'.

and...and...there were these horses looking at me over a bridge but the bridge was in a forest over a stream which turned into a river which flowed under another bridge and the horses were looking at me and there was something on the ground lying among leaves and I could see faces in it and I looked at it for a long time and there was shiny lichen in a tree and there was a bull looking at me and the forest had all been cut down and I could see for miles and I could see my house and one of the horses looked at me and there was more forest fallen down and a stream and more fallen forest and the bull was looking away and I was looking out over a lake with dead trees in the water and the bull was in a field and the horses were looking at me over the bridge and I was walking along a track and someone was ahead of me and they went into some woods and disappeared and the bull was looking at me and I was by the stream which turned into a river and it went under a bridge and there was the same person walking in the woods and they disappeared and the horses were looking at me and I was where all the trees had been cut down and I could see my house and I was by the stream which turned into a river and went under the bridge and over some rocks and into the lake with the dead trees in the water and I was looking out over the lake and a storm was coming and the person in the woods disappeared again and there was that thing lying on the grass  among the leaves with faces in it and the bull was looking at me across the field and suddenly it was near me and a tree was walking on its roots with shiny lichen on its branches and I was near the stream and two bridges and the rocks and a bridge and I was standing on the first bridge and I could see that person in the woods walking away on a track and they turned and looked at me and they disappeared in the woods and the thing with the faces was among the leaves and the horses were looking at me and I was looking at me looking at me at URHQ in October 2018.

 

RIMARIMBA : WESTERN ISLES

from the Unlikely Recordings YouTube Channel

Dateline URHQ October 2018.

Part three of the new Rimarimba album Beware Of Falling Bicycles is built on a further variation of the percussion track of part one. This is quite a tuneful and tranquil piece of music designed to lull you into a false sense of security before part four. You have been warned....



 

RIMARIMBA : BEST FOOT FORWARD

from the Unlikely Recordings YouTube Channel

Dateline URHQ August 2018.

Part two of the new Rimarimba album Beware Of Falling Bicycles is built on a variation of the percussion track of part one. The independent listening panel here at URHQ to whom all new material is played have described this piece as uplifting and (gasp) danceable. Something has clearly gone terribly wrong with either the music production process or the panel. Investigations are underway....



 

RIMARIMBA : ALL TOGETHER NOW

from the Unlikely Recordings YouTube Channel

Dateline URHQ August 2018


30 years have elapsed since the last Rimarimba album, Light Metabolism Number Prague, was completed but not released. It is now available from RVNG Intl in a limited edition bag set with Below The Horizon, On Dry Land and In The Woods. Just like buses, you wait for ages and then four come along at once, followed by yet another one. Here is part one of the new Rimarimba album Beware Of Falling Bicycles.

Will it too take 30 years to be released? We shall see....

 

RIMARIMBA : FLYING SAUCERS

from the Unlikely Recordings YouTube Channel

Dateline URHQ October 2017.


Built upon the programmed percussion ideas in Strange Vibes, this piece was inspired by finding a spot in a fairground where all the rides' music were at approximately equal volumes. Moving a short distance in any direction was like 'mixing' the competing tunes.
