I started this piece by experimenting with a crunchy bassline “chop”, and it seemed lonely, so I added drums (Logic Pro's excellent e-drummer Darcy). And then, I just sat down with the resulting backline and Released the Cello. Fortunately, my studio has plenty of room to swing a cello!
This piece turned out to be an 8-count swing, which feels perfectly natural to me unless I'm trying to actually dance to it. (I learned to dance on the East Coast, where 6-count swing is the standard, so 8-count phrasing makes me feel like I'm dancing off phrase 50% of the time). I used to be a serious competitive ballroom dancer, but I haven't danced much in the last 10 years. I really miss it – and even more now, since I've been swing dancing in my studio with my cello!)
