Receiving & Transmitting
Recorded at the Sound Garage in northern California this CD started with the acoustic and electric guitar as two live improvisational sessions totaling almost 60 minutes. The effects used on the guitars were two loopers (Hardwire DL-8 and a Stereo Memory man) and two Hardwire reverb pedals with the use of E-Bows and slides. The guitar tracks sound very ethereal and other-worldly. After the guitars were recorded live with an audience of about twenty people all jammed into the studio then Coop laid down the drums, exotic percussion, fretless slide bass, koto and guitar synth along with creating some additional loops. The music was birthed out of his desire to create music from a deeper place than just wanting to entertain. It is a CD for those who meditate, soak, have dreams, see visions, and listen to music as a healing tool, a place to unwind and rest. The CD is intended to be played as one continuous track, though it can be downloaded as individual tracks so you may notice that at times it stops abruptly.
