Spirit Wind




by Derek Jones

Flautist Derek Jones presents a collection of improvisations that were inspired by the idea of a universal spirit in all musical cultures.

The keyboard/synthesiser tracks were recorded first with particular soundscapes and ideas in mind, and then flute improvisations were recorded over these. Other percussion and effects were added at the end of the flute recordings. Particularly beautiful are the deep Gamelan bells in "Meditation" and "Distant Bells".

The aim is to create free flowing and expressive melodic elements over existing sounds which are sometimes a drone, but also interplay melodically with the flute lines.
