Janek Gwizdala Podcast - little dragon, composition, melodic content

Back in podcasting mode after several months on tour, and here's an extra long one to try and make up for the long gap since the last. Featuring some music from Little Dragon on this one, as well as talking about composition process, and melodic content, and my upcoming sessions for my first studio album.

    Hello Janek!!

    It’s Alexander Spencer, a young 18 year old fellow bass/guitar playing musician from Ontario Canada. Just want to say that your music and outlook on sticking to what you believe in has been an incredible inspiration, not only to my music, but to life in general! You’ve really reinforced my belief in music.

    Loving the new podcast, beautiful new music!! I can’t wait for when your new album comes out!! I wish you best of luck with your new upcoming studio album, I’ll be doing my first soon as well:D

    Anyway, thanks so much for pumping out such brilliant music and answering so many questions on talkbass.. I’ve learned so much in the past while just reading those replies of yours, so much truth in those words!

    Take care man,

    Great Podcast mate. Loving the melodic ideas and the idea that you’re constantly asking questions and answering them and never waste a melodic idea. You constantly develop each fragment and see where it goes, before returning.

    You’re right, for the audience, this is like story-telling and makes much more logical, musical sense, with ideas that they can clearly hear being developed and returning to as opposed to simply playing line after line of unconnected material. (which is ok too btw! - contradiction?)

    Good work!
