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.

Cheers,
-Derek

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!
