Inspired by caustik's phrygian improvisation I decided to record an improvisation in my favorite mode, lydian. It throws in some chromaticisms and mixture with phrygian in places for variety. I actually have long loved the interplay between those two modes, it has a particularly mysterious sound that I just dig. A lot.

Glad to be back, it's nice to see old friends and see some new faces and get inspired by all your music. Thanks all.

Feeling nice after hearing it all the way through a couple times -- Lydian does have a very pleasant affect and the chromatics are a nice touch of flavor. Especially loved the bits which definitely reminded me of my phrygian recording with the rhythmic meandering -- similar concept but from another perspective and mode. The chords going on around 4:20 (and 6:40) were realllly nice as well. Could talk about some other sections as well, but anyway this was a fitting piece of improv to hear on a relaxing Sunday night!
