moody experiments. it's another evil night. requires good speakers or good headphones for the full experience (leans heavily on low bass tones).

love you all.

Really nice track Sir....reminds me of Múm, Boards of Canada and Autechre and maybe a little early Aphex Twin. I can see this song on an intelligent thriller soundtrack for sure.

Love the really low bass tones.

relay the gory details of signal warping, please.

Ok, so it works like this:


And I'm just knob tweaking. Delay, phasor, and a digital tremolo are the pedals I used. Oh, and a digital resampler that's built into garageband... I that it's effect settings open, and would change it's resample rate / multiplier as if it were one of my physical pedals too.

So basically these are all feedback loops feeding back on feedback loops, with me being a noise dork in between. Oh, and I did play an organ to give the song some tonal structure.

Sorry, just realized my programming joke might not make the most sense.

I literally have the microphone in front of my monitors. So I'm starting out with that classic obnoxious feedback noise, but then in between the mic and monitors I have coloring agents... delays and tremolo and chorus and phasors with huge (>1 second) phase times, and at the end of the chain another delay with a large (>1 second) delay time.... and then that output goes back into the monitors.

It's chance music, with my 'compositional elements' being the way I'm modifying my pedal settings in real time.

Nice ! Thank you. (I've been thinking for a while of selling music to people working in health care related jobs/ but I don't think that I would sell this tune to, say... a dentist ?).
