about

In the 80th year anniversary of its original publishing, Adam Ahuja gives us a re-imagined, chill-synth, indie-jazz take on the beautiful classic melody, “Over the Rainbow.” The remake is performed as a multi-instrumental live-loop, and features a slow-evolving 30-chord progression paired with a somewhat-mysterious, dimly-lit, alt-pop vocal. Ahuja draws out simplicity amidst complexity, and conjures up feelings of yearning and intrigue as he builds the performance instrument-by-instrument in a single studio take: layering stereo keys, electric bass and vocals, swaggy live drums, a baby-grand, and robotic live-looping effects, sending the listener off through the caverns of singularity.

The “Over the Rainbow” live-looping rendition was tracked at Pinch Recording in NYC, and was pre-mixed in advance of the single-shot performance by studio owner and head engineer E Scott Lindner. The recording is one amongst the quickly expanding catalogue of releases under Ahuja’s self-started Infinity Gritty label, which is regularly churning out creations at Pinch Recording and immediately bringing them to the public via the Ropeadope Records family.
