Drawn Inward

This semester has been a busy one so far, leaving me with quite a bit less time for music. So it has been a month since I’ve been able to squeeze in enough time to compose and record. Fortunately when I found some time, the results  came together fairly quickly.

This is an all-new tune, called “Drawn Inward”. There isn’t anything particularly remarkable about it — it’s pretty much a straight-down-the-middle jazz-rock fusion number. If there’s anything unusual, it is that there are some pretty unconventional harmonic changes.

The format is guitar, keys, bass and drums. As usual, I played the guitar and bass parts and programmed the others. The guitar is my Anderson Cobra. Structurally, the song is a conventional 32-bar song form (AABA) with a 4-bar intro/interlude.
