What is the origin of the name K-A-T-A-N-I ? I just had a dream, directing me to find Katani in Michigan...I found your name, but not much else so here I am. Boris Badenough, Farmboy, Dean Anderson is my name, one of the pioneering house music artists in Chicago - my music production company, music & pictures. Maybe you are the Katani. Maybe not. sorry to bother if this is the wrong Katani.
Nirmal - the music that occurs AFTER the 1 minute mark is good - I don't understand the long, sustained notes earlier on, or why you wait to get into anything meaningful until the minute mark - particularly for TV, all that has to happen right away my friend.
I have to CHASE something....no lie. I'm chasing my dog around my condo with the harness she has in her mouth!! Great track, John. I'd like to put it at the top of the collection. Please forward. Thanks.
Listened to "Fear and Love" again, and like it more the 2nd time around. Two thoughts as I listen again: (1) You may want to consider adding some accents here and there, if for no other reason than to provide edit points, "accents" could be BIG percussion or orchestral hits, not alot of them, but a few might provide some edit points (2) The only other thing was the ending - I feel like it's a bit abrupt, rather than using the final 16 bars or so to "build" to a climax, and then resolve with the BIG ENDING. My two cents...
Really enjoy this track John. With it's edgy disposition and 16th-note 'push', it's got the elements, and - it FEELS like a chase piece. Thanks also for the Lennon quotes, here's one from the 'Pluto' character in "Animal House" - "NOTHING IS OVER TIL' WE SAY IT IS!!"
Having known Dave from way back in our college days - and spending many a night with him amidst giant tape loops (real audio tape!) in the electronic music lab - his interest and study of world music was already well-developed...Congratulations to Dave and his amazingly beautiful and spiritually lifting music. We are lucky to have access to this uniquely talented artist!
