Booklet for tiny leaves (CDL702-501-01)
The Original Photograph by Tommy Folkesson and the Pencil copy that is used for the album cover.
Below are two more processed pictures.
|A Jazzmonologue, what’s that?
This production is a true "one-man production", in the sense that except for Tommy taking the photograph that the cover is based on, the only person involved in the entire production is myself. There are a couple of reasons for this. One is the thought of having the same person do/play all the parts, might be a way of making the end result extra homogeneous and therefore a bit different/more interesting. Another reason is that I was curious about how far a standard PC would take me. ( I’m positively surprised).
After the pieces was composed and arranged in a traditional fashion, I used my Roland® JV-880 and JV-1080 synthesizers modules to play the different parts (one by one) in order to get them recorded. Both Sonic Foundry’s® Vegas Pro™ and SAW™ by IQS® multitrack software was used to do these hard disk recordings. The final result was one file/track for each individual part.
So, everything (including the drum and percussion parts) is played on a regular synthesizer/piano keyboard, using the different sounds from the synthesizer modules, to acquire real-time digital audio recordings onto the hard disk of my computer.
|After mixing (using Vegas Pro™) and mastering (using SF’s Sound Forge®) the material, I was able to "burn" this CD ("Red Book
Standard" using SF
"tiny leaves" was completed and ready to be listened to.
I hope this explains what I mean by using the word monologue. The answer is simply that what you hear on this CD is a single person trying to communicate. That is, me trying to communicate with you on a person to person basis, and I really hope that I’m making sense.
