Another Stunning Composition and Performance by Eric Czar

5

March 22, 2012 by esarsea

This one consistently turns me into a mouth-breather. Extremely captivating. I find myself at a loss to write anything that really does this piece justice. It’s like a hybrid mix of ambient music (which Eric does so well) and a more traditional instrumental piece.

Well, I guess there’s nothing really “traditional” about music composed for and performed on 7-string basses. See, I told you I was at a loss for words. I’m not even making sense this morning.

Maybe one of you can give it a try in the comments section. Be sure to watch it all the way through – it’s a true work of art.

    Awesome doesn’t even begin to describe. Whadda masterpiece. If this desn’t evoke some kind of emotion in ya, I suspect you might already be dead!

    I’m still looking forward to the day when Eric puts all these wonderful compositions together with an ensemble.

    I like it. Very calming. Could play it for naptime at my preschool, maybe with the sound of raindrops in the background. The video is cool too.

      It is calming, but at the same time I sense an undercurrent of darkness, which is common in a lot of Eric’s pieces. There are times I wonder if that might just be a trait of solo bass work (due to the low notes) and/or that mournful tonal quality of fretless basses…but at other times I swear I can perceive a certain undefined heaviness/anger/angst that hides behind (and/or plays off) the otherwise “pretty” or playful stuff. I am probably over-analyzing…trying to sound like some astsy-fartsy arts critic. All I know is that I really like it.

    Yeah, I hear that. A sort of sadness, which a lot of my naptime music has too — The nature sounds and minor keys.
