Ballad of Flapcast (Session Recording, Take 4)

Gaizse Music recorded hours of musical and sound source material during many home studio and field recording sessions from August-December 1997 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The October 20th “Ballad of Flapcast” recording session included Kerry d’Noit on guitar and Liam d’Noit on drums and was intended to create musical source material for a much larger sound piece “My Fucshia Flip-Flops://Ballad of Flapcast,” which Gaizse Music originally released in 1998 on the My Fucshia Flip-Flops Single and which will appear on Gaizse Music’s forthcoming release, Tales of The Banished & Elite.  This raw, live DAT recording (Take 4 from “Ballad of Flapcast” recording session) was not used by Gaizse Music as the base track for the song “Ballad of Flapcast” included in the larger sound piece, but it represents one of the earliest articulations of the song’s component sections.  In the end, Gaizse Music created the base track for “Ballad of Flapcast” by editing segments from two separate takes from the recording session.
