It contains genuine live instruments, painstakingly recorded note for note and in various styles. The instruments focused on are from China, India and The Persian Empire. I incorporated the keyboard, the actual duduk (this was interwoven with the SILK interpretation) and the ravish sitar pedal played with "Selena" - my home made strat. It was recorded in this order:
1: Persian 30 Piece Strings - Bass (Silk)
2: Warm Strings (Keyboard)
3: Sitar Drone: (Guitar & Pedal)
4: Sitar Lead: (Guitar & Pedal)
5: Duduk: (Silk)
6: Duduk: (My lungs!)
They were then bounced to a stereo track to make room for:
2: Persian 30 Piece Strings - Lead (Silk)
3: Persian 30 Piece Strings - Harmony (Silk)
4: Sarod - (Silk)
5: Sequenced Bass (Keyboard)
6: Distorted Guitar (Guitar & Pedal)
Just looking at the above list reminds me of the effort it to to create such a relatively short piece of music. I may hire out an orchestra one of these days, lottery jackpot win pending!
