Another instrumental music, which I had composed, while I was a member of the Surf-rock-band “The golden tornadoes”. One of my bandmates was a studied doctor of physics. Usually when I came up with a new song for the band he was the one to find the name for the song and in this case he came up with “Cherenkov radiation”. For those, who have not studied physics: The characteristic blue glow of a reactor working underwater is caused by the “Cherenkov-effect”.
If you want to know more:
Recording notes: I recorded the guitar with an Epiphone Casino with Bigsby, the bass was recorded using a Bassculture Picco Shortscale. I used 11s Flatwound-strings on the guitar to achieve a nice Vintage-sound.
To separate the guitar-solo from the guitar-theme I choosed an off-axis mic-placement for the solo, so the solo-sound is slightly different.
The beginning of the verse-section features a one-note-theme, which is colored by different chords (similar to Jobim’s One-note-samba). The chorus is based on a chord-progression often found in baroque-music.
