Comments on Mr Sandbags's stuff

This is a track I've been working on for quite a while so I am glad to finally have it out of my head. I have a kind of love/hate relationship with time and its humble functionary, the clock. Ticking, in particular, is something I am ambivalent…read more

Extraordinary mix/soundfield on this. Sounded like the clocks were external to my headphones, several feet away.

A piece of experimental whimsy. I took a nice piano loop from the Logic library and utterly destroyed it with The Finger. What's interesting about this to me is that I was not playing the MIDI driving The Finger but using Elysium to do so. Here…read more

Nice. I’ll have to go listen to more of your stuff now.

It's been so long since I've made any music I've kind of forgotten how. I was just noodling about and thought I had a sound I liked so I bounced it out quite quickly. This one is all made with Reaktor and Boscomac's Air Piano ensemble, plus…read more

Interesting mix of sounds. Cool!

Edward Lear. Ring Modulation. No, I don't know why either.

Hey thanks for the nightmare fuel. Keep it up!

Very cool tension. It feels like it’s speeding up and I’m not completely sure it isn’t.

… seems appropriate to me – nice piece.

I have no idea why I thought “Edward Lear” and “Ring Modulator” in the same moment. Probably I shouldn’t have.

Don’t mind me - I’ll just be over here for a while.

Utt - Mr. Sandbags. Been a while since I heard from you.
Time for a beer and a joint.

Very nice - glad you’re back to making music. I’m also a big fan of Permut8, but was unaware of Boscomac’s page; thanks for including that info.

Liking the underpinning energy.

A violin sample used as an impulse response for a convolution reverb to which various filtered noise is fed. Just playing with the technique.

this sounds positively haunted. really digging it.

Psychotic mermaids. Everywhere. Not for the aquatic paranoid.

Thanks for the kind words both. Chris it is a pretty good idea but I can’t take any credit for that, I got it from Pendle @ SoundDust. He uses it to build his Plastic Ghost Piano and I thought it sounded like something cool to play with.

what a unique idea! Thank you for this great aural experience!

This is awesome. I’m transported to a quiet but alarming place. Very cool.

I told the [good Sister](http://alonetone.com/sistersavage) that I wanted to try using vocals in a track and she offered to do me some abstract, stylized, vocals that I could play with and this little number is the result. Working with wet (pre…read more

A fabulous compilation of sounds, dark colors, bitter flavors, a caress of eeriness. Love it!

This is amazing in my denon’s

I'm trying to experiment with intentionally combining two different sounds. Since I seem to find this difficult I am starting with using a drone as one of the sounds taking my inspiration from the opening tracks of the Brian Eno & Jah Wobble collaboration…read more

Ah we had some fun. :)

I've had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this one. I enjoyed making the beats and think that part came out pretty good but everything after that felt rather haphazard and didn't feel right to me. I was close to abandoning the track…read more

This just came up in my itunes shuffle play and I was all “damn, like this, what is it?” a little digging and I found myself here :)

Some old cylinder-days orchestral sounds resampled, chopped, and effected. Put me in mind of clowns.

Traffic jam clowns!

No rhyme, no reason, just a colony of mournful machines piping their clangorous, grinding sonorisms at each other across an barren electronic landscape. This will also be some of the source material that I will process later into something…read more

…then I, without special reason, descended into the abyss of black of bass. Will I find there what you need? Or, on the way, I lost myself?

This is the first track made with my new Reaktor instrument 'Super Scanoid' which might just have well been named '1950s Sci-Fi Soundtrack Generator". The sounds it makes with this sample (a bouncy pizzicato cello) reminded me of the score from…read more

A rather more fundamentally experimental piece with Reichenbach's new *drift* mode. In this mode a probability matrix controls periodic changes in the loop length and/or position. Once more I am using one of the awesome [Rekkerd mixed bag](http…read more

Very nice work, I love the way the ambience flows. Also the Reaktor ensemble looks like a nice piece of programming.
