Gawler Line

My old daily journey in the rain; some twisted ambience.

Neuexperiment

Two fragile unrelated mini-melodies collide in a random reichian-tape-delay fight, battle it out in marred reverb, compression and unending echo chambers, get twisted and stretched to break a few bones in the last round and finally lay to rest on the ground forever after expiring. Recorded with les moyens du bord, I suggest you initally turn down the volume by 20%.

They Slither, So There

Squeezed in on the last day of the challenge, this is a modern snake charming piece. It's ambient/experimental/electronic. Complete with rattlesnake sample.

glass spiders

In a cave, several hundred feet underground, a mysterious glow can be seen in the distance. Beyond the dark corridors, a strange music fade in as you're getting close. The spiders are here, tall as houses, moving gracefully, feeding their babies, chanting soft lullabies under the crystal dome of a large chamber. One of them approaches and weaves shining threads of sound. You're not really frightened. Actually you feel rather comfortable as you're listening to the friendly speech. Going back ?

Crystals

It was 1999, I'd just graduated from trackers to fruityloops, and I was listening to a LOT of Warp and Boards Of Canada, and I made this. It's still my favourite, despite being the first tune I ever completed. Tsk.

vamp

hi, here's the sequel to my previous post, lo-fi vamp. During a jam with a friend, I unearthed the two chords vamp from my memory and we noodled a little bit around it. He recorded my rhythm guitar part and a solo, and said he could be working on it in order to add something more orchestral to these basic tracks. Well, he's got craft but my vamp now sounds like a soft porn movie soundtrack to my ears.

Pointless

I haven't posted here in a while, but I have created a new song. It's bright, optimistic and atmospheric.

The city streets

Listening to too much Steve Reich? I don't know.

Ending

I'm thinking this will be the outro to my first album, or possibly come right before the final song.

Long Night and Nothing to Do

I wrote this song in one night for a school assignment that was due the next day. The music was really just flowing out of me. I don't even remember writing most of this because I was so tired. It was created to be a score for a 9-minute short film that I made, but it's grown on me so much that I've decided to include it on my first album. It does need some work, though: the mixing is way off in some areas (and even distorted) and it's way too long to include on an album.

Glow

I made this song last summer (2006). It has the usual synth and drum machine, as well as the addition of a little guitar. Very fast-paced, yet relaxed. Oh, and, of course, it'll someday (maybe) have lyrics.

Aware

Very atmospheric. This song will always remind me Christmas, as I wrote most of it during the month of December. Just like my previous track, this will also have vocals someday.

Unknown

One of the better songs I have lined up for my first album (which is still in its early stages). Heavy drums, synth, happiness. Also, this is my first post to MeFi Music.

brirfar

in where I try and fail to make something along the lines of boards-of-canada or aphex twin's SAW2... but it's still the only tune I've ever completed that I actually like.

Montage

an overwhelmingly ambient texture, pierced with many elements of various density - scraped percussion, Latin and bluegrass gestures, strings, somber guitar notes and swirling electronics. Very soundtrack, very visual, particuarly for fans of Gustavo Santaolalla.

Ode to a dead deer

Out of sheer curiousity I set a sound activated recorder on the flank of a road-killed deer on the Monida pass - directly in between Idaho and Montana on I-15. I was fully engaged in my summer work of road construction, the year was 1999. I saw a murder of crows assembled, making plans to have this poor deceased deer for dinner. I was curious to hear if crows spoke differently between themselves from the regular crowspeak between us and them. Though this may not be 'music', I found it to be one of the most surreal and interesting things I'd put to tape. The sounds of slow-motion bullets you hear are heavy trucks passing. The crows speak for themselves.

The Birds Do Thus

An ambient electronic piece I put together a long while back. This is a tonal explication of a Frost poem I love. I felt that his words were perfectly descriptive of my own dissociated days spent in a haze of necessarily indulgent coma, when I should have been out doing other things. I built it on a framework of 32 bar phrases. There was something significant about the numerology of it, but I have since forgotten why. Maybe because it was 2002 and I was born in 1970, or something like that.

Acidspit13 (digital, with piano)

Here's a "golden oldie" way back from 2005, it's trancey but breaks convention in an ambient/acid sort of way. Intentionally chillin' groovetrak.

AND

Acid-ambient space dub loops. This is a live jam I did with a friend while visiting him in Seattle. The rig was comprised of me playing small and very slow beat loops in Traktor at BPMs relationally fractional to a master tempo of 110 BPM, while my friend looped samples in Live, both from prerecorded and live samples from mixboard outputs and sends. There is a Macbook microphone involved in the sampling of the room and as a feedback and reverb source. There is no shared MIDI clock in use - all tempo/pitch control is manual, and listen for long beat-count tempo-drifts of loop components, which are manipulated and intentional. The majority of this dub takes place as variations of two beats in one "measure", sometimes four but never more. This cut of the track is the last ten minutes of approximately one hour of play and loop building. It is pre-release version intended for derivitive works, remixes and redubs. (If you wish to remix, sample, splice, loop, fuck, deconstruct or otherwise destroy this track, I would vastly prefer that you please contact me via the email in my profile for the uncompressed and unprocessed file and the full Creative Commons license. Please do not use this low-bitrate file.)

Moon Factory

Another imaginary industrial space. I picture this place as vary large, probably planet sized. Apologies for the abrupt ending.

Washes

This song was an experiment for me. I usually do more straight forward dance music, but I decided to go with something faster and more melodic. Plus, chopping up beats is fun.

A Conception Serene [rest for the wicked rmx]

The second in a series of songs i've remastered for a short [50 copy] run of my favorite tracks from 2002-2006. This one is a little more experimental and insomnia-fueled than the last one i posted, but not completely abandoning the previous emphasis on melody and atmosphere. See inside for more.

Star is Smiling

It's 7am, I've been up all night, I'm tearing my hair out, I don't have any cigarettes left, and I can't get this particular piece of code working. What is there to do but write a song (and pray for cigarettes)?

Down with the Tempo

Alright. I used to think using GarageBand (and its loops) to make songs was "cheating". Then I started to use it. It's amazing how fun and easy it is, and you can really create some great sounding music. Here is my first downtempo song, entitled "Down with the Tempo". Enjoy!

Perfect Gun

Some deep, plodding minimalist electronica. Another tracking effort. Even so, I don't think I constrained myself enough - I could probably leave some more beats out...
