synopsis:

Sean made good use of the lockdown social isolation time by manifesting this sweet 5-song instrumental "Funk-o-Lation EP" with the help of guest artists Devon Sangha, Neil Brun, Jeff Marchant, Adam MacKay-Smith and Graham How.


"Rushing Through The Dark"
Composed and performed by Sean Luciw.
Sean Luciw - guitars, drums, bass, keyboards.

This funky jam sprang into existence a few days after the death of Neil Peart. I improvised drum beats along with a Howie B song (for tempo only) and then composed my own melodies around that.


"Racecar Deified"
Composed and performed by Sean Luciw.
Sean Luciw - guitars, drums, bass, keyboards.
Kris Ruston - white noise through Leslie speaker.

I made this on 02/02/2020, hence the palindrome-heavy title (I've also been watching a lot of racing documentaries lately).


"Hall of Myriads"
Composed and performed by Sean Luciw, Devon Sangha, Jeff Marchant, Adam MacKay-Smith.
Adam MacKay-Smith - piano intro.
Devon Sangha - first guitar solo.
Jeff Marchant - bass.
Sean Luciw - guitars, drums, percussion, keyboards.

On Sunday April 5, in the middle of the Covid lockdown, I jammed on drums along with a favourite Bootsauce tune (for tempo only), then composed my own chord progressions. Everyone else added their parts via remote collaboration, then I wrote my melodies, and this is the result!


"Funk-o-Lation"
Composed and performed by Sean Luciw and Neil Brun.
Neil Brun - bass.
Sean Luciw - guitars, drums, percussion, keyboards, circuit bending.

Conceived April 2, in the middle of the worldwide social isolation routine, playing with experimental chord progressions.


"Alvin Quincy's Groove"
Composed and performed by Sean Luciw and Graham How.
Graham How - trumpets and effects.
Sean Luciw - guitars, drums, percussion, bass, keyboards.
A chipmunk at MacArthur Island - squeek squeek.

Manifested Feb. 8, inspired by Quincy Jones and Alvin and the Chipmunks.
