    Oud, Duduk, and Percussion demo

    This is a piece featuring oud and duduk. I was trying for a mideastern vibe.

    Grouduk

    Please give it a listen and let me know your take on it.

    I like it. Before the entry of the oud - its sounds more jazz-cross-over (ala Alice Coltrane - Pharoah Sanders) rather than "authentic" arabic to me. I'm no expert at all in this music, but for a rough impression, it sounds like a more western use of arabic textures. Not at all cheesy, but not really aiming to be totally authentic either. The relative simplicity of the rhythm suggests a dance sequence to me. Cool sounds!

    And though many people mistakenly use it as such, the Duduk is about as Middle Eastern as the pan flute.

    The Duduk is in fact Armenian.

    Having said that, I really liked the piece! Very fresh and interesting. Well done!

    Authentic! Would I rather have an authentic civil war pistol or a genuine one?

    Thanks gesticulator!

    Thanks dubaifox. I'll have to get my sense of origins starightened out.

    Thanks gigalove. I used RA mostly. I think the finger cymbals are from Stormdrum.

    Thanks tony. You are very kind.

    Thanks for listening all.

    I think maybe you'd prefer a genuine revolver from 1970 to an authenticated civil war pistol - to stretch a metaphor!

    How about an authenticated genuine civil war pistol?

    Ah, well i think I'm a bit lost with this authentic/genuine thing now.

    To put it more simply - I dont think you were trying to write something that could be passed off as ethnically accurate, but just exploring your own tastes with a middle-east palate of sounds, would that be right?

    At any rate, its an enjoyable track with a good groove.
