The 4th & 5th Degree Joseph McDonald
The 4th & 5th Degree (2012)10:57
I like to meditate. This piece was certainly found in that space. It came together very naturally. I began exploring both Lydian (the 4th degree) and Mixolydian (the 5th degree) and this work came to be. It was very much influenced by Steve Reich and John Mclaughlin. I took a minimalist approach then began to improvise on my acoustic guitar over a very simple structure. It really was an enjoyable process composing and recording this piece. I hope you can find some enjoyment yourself!
