DEMONSTRATION 3: Portugal (Water)

This started out as a sort of tribute to Sun Ra’s Atlantis album, where it’s basically just Sun Ra on clavinet (or “Solar Sound Instrument”) and somebody playing congas. I got the idea to do something Sun Ra-ish due to some crazy, celestial effects that Mikey-Mike had plugged into his ukulele, which made space and time sounds as if infested by magical metallic locusts, or something. Then we ate Portuguese still chicken, which was delicious. So, after eating, I found a harpischord sound on Mikey-Mike’s computer, laid down the simple riff that was in my head, added “drum circle” percussion, and then sprinkled magic ukulele dust over the rest.

And I call it “Portugal.”
