Album info

"Drop Me Off In Denpasar" started out as a bunch of piano exercises I wrote for myself to develop my finger independence for piano. The idea was to have each finger play a different rhythm separately as a drummer's arms and legs do between kick, snare, cymbal, etc... As I became more comfortable with them, I slowly started playing the patterns together and it became a piece of music rather than (hopefully) just "finger-wanking." The title references the capital of Bali, where I was soon to be leaving to study gamelan for the summer in Bali. Musicians on this (4-track) recording are, Ches Smith (drums), Dan Ake (homemade percussion), Pete Martin (piano and overdubbed gasang), and Bianca Austin (percussion and second piano on the intro).
