Steven Mackey: Feels So Baaad
Feels So Baaad explores bad as good, bad as naughty, and bad as nasty (in a good way)
and is driven by libido rather than cerebellum. It arose as an antidote to the Chuck
Magnione pop classic Feels So Good which I arranged for the same ensemble. Feels So Baaad
has very little to do with Feels So Good in terms of musical material by
..Baad" does wrench a two measure bass line from the badist part of
Feels So Baaad was written for the violin and Marimba duo, Marimolin.
