Alap- Sunday

Song - "Sunday"
Album - 'Alap' (out 1/1/11)
Video - Stephen Arndt

This is not a typical Netherfriends release. This album is basically
an improv album with elements of ambient and drone. It is entitled
Alap, which is a term used in Indian classical music for a section that is improvised and free flowing. The recording of this album was something I did for a week during Christmas because I don't celebrate and I was bored out of my mind!! I had been working hard on the 50 state songs and needed a short break. I did one song a day and was inspired after playing a similar sounding
set at a yoga studio. I figured since the music was so easy and fun to make that I could record one session a day for a week and will be releasing it one day at a time. I think the music should be listened to while relaxing or doing work. Easy listening d00ds. -Shawn

Pt. 2 of 7 from the Alap ambient song/video project of Dec 2010/11.
