There were a few moments over Christmas where I sat in front of a keyboard just noodling away, this was one of those times. Don't you just hate it when people say "Oh I just threw this together quickly, forgive the mistakes", well I say it all the time cos its true, especially in this case. It was literally arranged and recorded in 20 minutes, although the little edits here and there afterwards did add to the overal time.
There are a few changes from the original (the "stabbing" coda inspired from live versions). Roughly its structured: intro-ABACA-outro The B part has doubled in size just cos... The C part is completely bluff, theres no sense of harmony going on anywhere between the violin and piano lol. The outro jam is just a sloppy end. Theres a hint of Child In Time there too.
What else... Created in Reason 3.0 and I think this is the first piece, composed by someone else, that I've published. As always with these quick pieces, each track was recorded just once, and it either worked or it didn't. A lot of the backing is made up from looping phrases. Even if I was brilliant, I could never be as good as the original composer, so maybe you might like to buy his version :)
