Carbon 7. Recorded March 9th 2013, the night comet Pan-Starrs first became visible to the naked eye in the northern hemisphere. [more inside]
We made an EP.... here's the title track. Featuring Sredni Vashtar's usual swirls and loops and noises, it was one of four songs recorded and mixed late last summer in South London [more inside]
A brief, ridiculous tune about space travel.
If psychedelic space rock can be sparkly, this song would be the epitome of that dynamic.. Or shimmery or glistening or whatever. Glitter is in the eye of the beholder.
Everybody likes music for partying mode, but what happens afterwards? This song would be the perfect accompaniment for the comedown afterwards (and even the hangover). Chill, centered, reflective, harmonious. I think :) [more inside]
Tastefully blending several genres together, including indie or alternative rock, dreampop, space rock, psychedelia, ambient and shoegaze. Sounds of Sputnik is a project producing a sound that immediately brings several associations to the surface - like dreaming, space, flight, exploration, reflection. Worth a listen whether or not you have or have not traditionally gone in the above-mentioned genres of music. [more inside]
This is a hip-hop/rap song dedicated to Fomalhaut, a proto-planetary star of the constellation Pisces [more inside]
Listen, a song by Sredni Vashtar. Recorded, as usual, at rehearsal. The loop drones throughout and the guitar and bass are sparse and simple.
Here's an old song from Sredni Vashtar, revamped, restructured and recorded at rehearsal a few weeks ago [more inside]
This is one spacey tangent-filled whirlwind of an electronic mix, slicing elements of Ummagma's original version of 'Lama' into a whacked factory of digital sound - not for the light hearted when it comes to electronica, but certainly worth the trip :)
'8 billion pounds is rising from the ground'. A song about the city. [more inside]
I felt like making something tonight, so I made a space thing. [more inside]
A mid-tempo piece, built around the opening drum riff. Carbon 7 is an improvisational jazz/space/rock trio that just makes it up on the spot. [more inside]
Carbon 7, plus guest Fred Mitchim on the flute. Making it up on the spot, as usual. [more inside]
Some songs take you on a trip (and bring you back), while others just send you drifting endlessly and blissfully. For us, this song belongs to the latter, building layers of layers of sound and effects - like new galaxies being opened. [more inside]
Carbon 7 again, making it up as we go, per usual. This one seemed to come from a slightly dark and empty space. [more inside]
A Sunday morning rock-esque tune. [more inside]
Noisy, swirly rock song recorded at our band rehearsal a few weeks ago. Apologies for the bum notes and obvious errors. [more inside]
If you were to roll up some element of Brian Eno, Robert Fripp and Bill Nelson, and paint it with a slight shoegaze ethereal hue, this might be what you would get… Enjoy this Ummagma track! [more inside]
A team of astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) has spotted sugar molecules in the gas surrounding a young Sun-like star. [more inside]
While the term space rock is kicked around quite often these days, there is something else out there: space pop. This song epitomizes that term, as reflected in the title itself. Poppy, spacey and ethereal trip to the cosmos. [more inside]
With all the fuss going on about the Jayne Hats from Firefly, thought it might be fun to share the first song from our Firefly-inspired music project, Leaves on the Wind. [more inside]
One fish was the first fish to walk on land, one fish was the first fish to breathe the air. [more inside]
Carbon 7 again -- This was the opening salvo at our Solstice show last month. 10 minutes-worth of us making it up as we go. Recorded live at the Carousel Lounge. [more inside]
Sure, the world could end Friday. Or Saturday. Or some other Friday 100,000 years from now. 7 minutes of instrumental contemplation, as it flowed in from the sky, last May. [more inside]
A semi-instrumental song given a second life after a decade in the demo wilderness. [more inside]
14 minutes of improvisation from Carbon 7, heralding the end of the Mayan Long Count. [more inside]
Carbon 7 again, from last June. This one sounds more like an actual song than about anything we've done, so far. 16 minutes of spontaneous creation. [more inside]
Spacey indie rock, recorded in rehearsal by our band, radiateur. [more inside]
Carbon 7 does yet another improv. Uptempo. We played all the notes. [more inside]
Another Carbon 7 song from our recent show at the Carousel Lounge. [more inside]
A spontaneous 20-minute creation by Carbon 7. The first song from our first live show a couple weeks ago. We tripped a breaker at 20:44 or it would have gone longer. [more inside]
A slow, jazzy improv thing. [more inside]
PARKING LOT PIMPIN IS A TRAPPY SONG FROM SPACE AGE FAMILY RAINING BRICKS CD. [more inside]
Back on the horse! Here's a song I wrote and recorded tonight. The idea was a laid-back, french café sort of sounding tune. It's about interstellar exploration. [more inside]
Another long instrumental noodle-athon. Making it up as we go. [more inside]
Starts out atmospheric as we slowly descend through the thickening clouds. [more inside]
A one-off structured song that I recorded in 2010 unlike most things I make... -Yair O
In which we jam out on our axxxes. I have temporarily given up even naming these... things. Another long spontaneous session by Carbon 7, my space-rock improvisational trio. [more inside]
Another Improvisational thing from my new band Carbon 7. This one's a bit long, at 19 minutes. [more inside]
My new psychedelic improv trio, Carbon 7. We're making it up as we go along. [more inside]
It was not night, when I started Speaking (with bad pitch before 20 seconds)... Peaceful concessions, what is a chordate? Love songs at cross purpose, missing the cross winds. It's all your fault, but mostly it's all mine too. [more inside]
Quiet, loud, low, and high bleeps. Plus drums. (Unfortunately, it sounds weird on built-in computer speakers. The toms and bass get chopped out almost completely. Maybe skip if you don't have headphones. Sorry, guys.)
Just a short little Spacetrancy song...
More music for deep space, take your protein pill and put your helmet on. [more inside]
Playing around with Saturn's Radio Emissions.
A rock ode to the bat that clung to the Space Shuttle Discovery. Thoughts? [more inside]
A very quickly produced (potentially unfinished?) song recorded with a Kaossilator, a Realistic MG-1, a Big Muff and a Space Echo for my solo recording project, Birdlaw. This is the song you hear when you reach the end of the universe.
Another sketch of a song.
Just a little rhythmic experiment, not actually gamelan but reminiscent.
