Thanks, guys! Appreciate it a lot.
Delightful piece and the parts all fit together nicely – maybe the first mix is best in this case ;).
Love this! Great twinkly tune and heavenly vocals.
gorgeous / / wow !!
Dramatic and suspenseful
Like it. Laid back, but far from boring. Hard to explain how it made me feel, but I can imagine a movie scene which appears carefree but has mystery hovering in the background.Well done!
thanks guys. it was a Reason sampler patch (maybe a dulcimer?) retuned with LMSO and then with some stern LFO filters.
Well, that was different.
I love the acoustic change up.
The vox really make it.
Very nice. What was the instrument?
Very celestial - shining tapestry of stars.
Sunflowers are a huge passion of mine - there is no such thing as “just sunflowers”! :)
Pretty intense sounds you have here! Scary, potent, midnight sunflowers…
I love the title as well as the music!
Thanks for the trip – it was a great ride!
toy melodicA sounds evil…like it.
nice set piece
Cor, short and tinkly! Lovely! Bethan M
I like listening to electronica once in a while. It’s a refreshing break.
no one does low/dark better than you
very cool; I could imagine a notated chamber version of this as well.
Does just what it needs to do.
hells yeah. as they say.
heartfelt…I dig it!
very cool track here!
as for freezing have you ever used GRM Tools Freeze or Riverrun? the former esp does a very nice job with any source.
& thanks for the comments. as for “shook me”, it had chunks processed in MetaSynth; then arranged w/more processing in DP.
nice! and such a comfy sounding tuning.
fantastic sound and lovely playing!
really digging this
thanks you guys; the winners were announced a few days ago. I quite liked my entry and that’s why I’m spreading it around now.
very nice rendition; loyal treatment, yet different enough to warrant sharing.
thanks re skree. the thing about noise (for me) is it can be so fun! there’s a built-in visceral excitement and the challenge is harnessing it into musical contexts.
man, Lao Jia is hypnotizing me!
the BackvieW stuff is excellent. I will check out your more recent material soon.
[also, I have a lot of exp/drony stuff down in my playlists that you might like.]
pretty fucking cool!
thanks guys. I’ve been busy and have catching up to do on this site…looking forward to more listening! as for this track (and many others in this category) it’s a mashup of stuff from improvfriday.ning ; basically there’s a weekly “event” where brand new stuff gets posted (improv-based or written for IF) and then some of us do quick mashes and post within the same event. sometimes the mashes leave the originals somewhat intact, sometimes it’s a full-blown reorganization of materials. the main thing for me is it’s fun as fuck!
beautiful Tom; congrats on the project Jukka-Pekka.
great; such an earthy sound out of the SMS & FM chips!
I especially like this one, with its rich, blurred sonorities. yum.
WS, I added no additional sound sources. The trebly stuff is Paul Muller’s piece, which is actually a kind of Steve Reich-ish texture with a midi chamber ensemble. I gated it so it only sounds when David’s guitar (which is also slightly gated) reaches a certain threshold. There’s a tiny bit of release and then additional decay from reverbs (different one for the guitar). Can’t remember what I else I did, mostly sweetneing. For me, a fairly “hands-off” mash, compared to what I usualy do, and an experiment in discongruity, or even cognitive dissonance (I’m a sucker for that stuff). Anyway, again, it’s formally still David’s wonderfully spasmodic improvisation, but with Muller’s contrasting sound also being uttered with every guitar gesture. So it’s little improv experiment and I liked the way it sounded.
What can I tell you?
I hold nothing inside
My brain aches from lack of....
I am shriveling up inside
Having not one thing to express
And my feelings…read more
compelling track, I like it. In other context the faux drums might bother me but here the strange elements seem to compliment each other; or a sense of conscious artifice.
PS I like your Ives
interesting idea, Chris; indeed this could turn into a song of sorts. It was just a quick IF mash where Paul’s continuous consonant minimalist texture is chopped into discrete chunks by virtue of being gate-triggered by David’s raucous guitar. I also declined my usual pitch-shifting and enjoyed the found intervallic & xenharmonic dissonances; & discongruity in general (mood/texture/tonality). So to me it’s more like a hyper-instrument extension of David’s original improvisation.
cool. I like your range of work (a fellow eclectic).
re: twikk, there may be some beating effects thought they weren’t explicitly planned. there’s certainly a crapload of hard, random panning.
