Inchoate Burbler

Some weird low sounds.

silhouettes

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]

2022-01-10

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.


vhs

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]


el tiempo se mueve demasiado lento

to two ends: improving spanish (little by little) & lessening longing (bit by bit)

Naturelle 2

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]


December 24

ZZ

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.

Ritmo

A little gtr, a little marimba, a little synth.


November 8

Coordinated Weather Waves

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.

I Never Dreamed Someone Like You Could Love Someone Like Me

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]

Vocal guide for Passion Fall

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]


October 11

Illuminated Corridor

A bit of dungeon synth.


October 9

The Foreman

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]
