Product details

The title Bend/Boogie/Break describes the character of three recurring ideas in the work:

  • Bend refers to the use of glissandi and pitch bends (particularly strings)
  • Boogie refers to the underlying funk bass
  • Break: as in, to break apart or a 'breakdown' section (perhaps a nod to metal rhythms!)

Inspiration is drawn from post-rock, funk, and honky-tonk piano, as well as the overarching idea of warping vinyl and things 'going wrong' - perhaps bent out of shape, broken, or not quite right.
