The Siren's Call - Baglama Saz and Teletuesday Improvisation

Author: sketch.and.jam

Description: Here's an improvisation that started out on my long neck baglama saz. Later I added four tracks of drums including darbuka, riq, frame drum and a marimba via my Roland Handsonic. Later in the song I add a couple guitar tracks on my G&L ASAT using guitar rig 6 and bias fx 2. Playing in key with the saz is tricky in standard guitar tuning but it lets you explore new scales to harmonize with the bflat, f and c notes of the saz.

The overall mood of this improvisation is mysterious and a bit creepy. It kind of reminds me of Greek mythology where a siren at sea calls ships to their demise on a rocky shoreline.

Thanks for listening :-)
