Tom Hamilton, J.D. Parran, Rich O’Donnell – Formal & Informal Music


Here’s an experimental record from 1980, featuring the side long “Formal and Informal Music.” It’s performed by three musicians and led by the electronics guy Tom Hamilton. I can best describe it as an oscillating electronic bee-hive with beautiful woodwind solo’s by J.D. Parran and percussion by Rich O’Donnell. Especially the flute segment is amazing, as is the percussion solo with what sounds like gongs and gamelan. Strangely exotic. I recorded four bids that are the highlights of the track.

Audio: 1 formal & informal music

Although it’s experimental, I find it to be very relaxing.
