Trying out some new recording equipment [more inside]
I sort of learned how to fade out a song on LogicPro. [more inside]
Some weird low sounds.
Cover of a Postal Service song. I'm pretty sure the song is ~actually~ about nuclear war, but the lyrics are weirdly appropriate for the pandemic. [more inside]
Little song my wife and I recorded this morning on an iPhone. Guitar and cello [more inside]
A walk through the depths of feedback noise [more inside]
This is 2022-01-01, both the song and today's date. We thought this phrase was catchy in our house, so I developed it a bit, but only slightly.
I took the Linn drum set in Live, slowed the samples down and played with it; vaporwave came out. I followed that to a conclusion of sorts. [more inside]
to two ends: improving spanish (little by little) & lessening longing (bit by bit)
I bought an old Steinway upright recently, on which I've been making pieces like this, which I call "naturelles." Three more naturelles on Bandcamp, here: https://raygull.bandcamp.com/album/naturelles-1-4 [more inside]
Doing sort of a Deadmau5-style beat using an old drum machine (Korg S3). I used the noise wave on my Korg Monologue to create the little cymbal swells every couple bars (classic Deadmau5 trick which I have been trying to copy for a while using different methods). The pulsing synth riff is also kind of a Deadmau5 thing. It's weird - I'm not even that much of a fan of the guy but the handful songs of his that I've liked have clearly influenced me a lot.
Looks great. Little full. Lotta sap.
Banjo and accordion, some light processing through the modular synth, lots of reverb (of course). [more inside]
Enjoying my new drum machine!
Some minimal/deep house vibes. A very simple 4-track recording that was super easy and fun to make.
Two sequencers that randomly diverge from a programmed melody, while I try to keep control of them by resetting the values. [more inside]
Synth demo in 2 parts. Featuring new gear acquisition the Korg S3 drum machine!
"What boldness we sanction / What feats we imagine / But what would have happened / If Mike Collins came home alone?" [more inside]
still trying to learn how to sing. maybe someday. [more inside]
For heroes pondering during their downtime. [more inside]
A little gtr, a little marimba, a little synth.
I love listening to shortwave radio on the web. I love mixing sounds together and processing them until they ooze. For whatever reason, this track relaxes me, like the Shipping News. Your mileage may vary.
Literally, a seven-minute transition between two chords. [more inside]
Orca jam with an OP-Z. [more inside]
After reading way too much about cybernetic theory I put together a feedback patch to provide some period-appropriate music to my Serge system. [more inside]
Happy Halloween! Here's me doing that song from the film "Carrie" where she gets to dance at the Prom. Maybe it's not a trick and Tommy really likes her? It seems as though things are finally looking up for Carrie. Oops, nope. CARRIE WHITE BURNS IN HELL! [more inside]
A song against the powerful. Or the all-powerful. Or about screaming into the void. Hey, piano! [more inside]
A quick finger style arrangement of the Everly Brothers' classic for baritone guitar. [more inside]
Something may happen if you do. [more inside]
Instrumental: bass, guitars, drum machine, arpeggiator. Sort of industrial at times.
Festive dungeon synth! [more inside]
Cover of "Anabelle" by Gillian Welch. Bass, guitar, accordion, lots of reverb. [more inside]
been trying to record some vocals lately which of course meant trying to figure out what the melody and lyrics would even be so I did an improv vocal session and then repeated the best of it 3 or 4 times and did a rough mix. [more inside]
A bit of dungeon synth.
Another ambient office jam - some granular textures and filter pinging over a slow chord progression. Needed something relaxing, then got too relaxed and needed a bassline. [more inside]
