Sounds kind of interesting. Would sound better with Perry's voice on it! Perry and Eric should work on a project without Guitar or Drums. :cool:

2015 Perry's voice?

Or 1988 Perry's voice?

Absolutely. And that section around 2:15 has quite similar textures to Price I Pay too.

Well, I think it's an interesting fusion of the old Polar Bear sound with some of the newer stuff the kids are doing now. It sounds like the heavier side of a Nick Cave track.

I agree that it's got a lot going on and kinda meanders... I'm not a huge fan of that.

Someone should tell Eric that different doesn't always mean better.

Polar Bear is light years better than any of his experimental electronic stuff.

Just gave those songs a spin. A lot better than I remember them being two years ago when they came out. Some cool bass stuff on these songs too.

I wonder if he kept perk's drum track on beneath the ground, like he said in the xiola interview.

Yeah?

What does this pave the road towards then?

A generation of metal lovers who look into the possibility of playing sax, for one thing.

The song's unlistenable to me. I can't handle the overall nails-on-chalkboard distortion that starts with the (presumably) guitar drone and quickly infuses everything like it's a trashed 5th generation cassette tape.

I didn't realise he was writing a piece of classical music dedicated to Los Angeles. He says everything he does sounds too European which makes sense as pretty much all of the early 'greats' were European. I guess it's kind of hard to get your head out of that when you're asked to write something involving a whole load of classical instruments.
Be interesting to see if he pulls it off.....if we ever got to hear it.

right, different instrumentation please, we all know you own a Virus C by now...I'd love to hear what he'd do with a orchestral sample library and it sounds as if that could be what he's doing right now...lets hope
