Digging back into some old ambient/noise/drone ideas. Synth, guitar, and bowed cymbal. [more inside]

Your Radiance

An old recording from the cassette 4 track days, newly rediscovered. Pretty poor recording which I have tried to clean up as much as possible here. [more inside]

dreams over drones

A very brief (50s) sketch I worked up on the train the other day. Crunchy synth bass drone in conversation with a ringing guitar (also synthesized).

The Bone Church

I'm working on a set of songs/sounscapes for a friend's online comic project. This is a spooky ambient piece using some recordings I made of a guy moving chairs around in a cathedral in Vienna, some sleep breathing, some musical saw, and a weird broken African instrument a friend gave me.

Warmup Jam

This was recorded by the band I'm in (Ghost Flowers) on August 1, 2013, at our practice space before the actual practicing-of-songs started. It's a thirteen-minute variation on one chord, has nice ebbs and flows, and has a steady mid-tempo beat. [Not part of my "Unu..." series, just filler while I juggle four songs of that at once.] [more inside]

43.459885, -93.570367

Not sure how to describe this one, but I sampled a lot of disparate stuff and used some found sound I have.

Blizzard

This is one of those "let's drift away" songs... hazy gazey spacey and dreamy all in oneā€¦ If one is prone to daydreaming or aural hypnosis, this may not be the song for you :) Just the same, this is definitely worth a listen to all others. This is Sounds of Sputnik.

Listen

Listen, a song by Sredni Vashtar. Recorded, as usual, at rehearsal. The loop drones throughout and the guitar and bass are sparse and simple.

Aphasiatic Fields

I've always found the sound of a big tuning fork wobbling freely on the strings of a guitar (laid flat) really mysterious and interesting. This track is a whole bunch of that, with a reverb patch that reverberates not the direct signal, but the signal passed through a bank of very short delays that act like a resonant comb filter. The track ends up with buzzing the rung tuning fork against various open strings. There's more of my stuff at https://soundcloud.com/seclude and it's all CC licenced. Hope you like.

Erosion

I bought a cheap casiotone keyboard. I have to figure out how to learn to play it, but in the meantime... drone!

Ambiguous Sense of the Future

Post-rock always seems embedded with the sense that something is dire; however, shake it up a bit to get a kind of post-rock indie shoegaze vinaigrette and Sounds of Sputnik is likely what you would come up with. This is Ambiguous Sense of the Future.

No Last Request

Another world premiere, friends, from a tiny little joint in deepest Koenji. Once again I'm bangin' on the back of my diddley bow, with nothing else but a drone and a stombox to accompany my mournful cries. Lyrics and video here.

Lifelong

This began as an improvised piece involving a Poly Evolver synth, a Memory Man pedal, and an iPhone running Moog Filtatron. Then I decided to bury everything in noise, fuzz and tape flutter until it became nigh-unlistenable. Enjoy!

grid flux_1

Filtery drone from my JUNO 60 meets ukulele playing exactly four notes. No verse, no chorus, no changes, no development... just does what it does for 2 minutes and 43 seconds, then stops. It's the soundtrack for a video here.

Hallelujah (drone version)

Here's my version of the esteemed Mr. Cohen's paean to the religion of love. I dropped the rhythm and chord changes, and made a new melody. The very minimal accompaniment consists of three tracks from my trusty old JUNO 60 analog synth. That's it! Video version (photos by yours truly) at Vimeo and YouTube.
