Some Easter Monday techno [more inside]
A simple version of a cool, brooding electronic jam. Underlying ambient riff accentuated with minor chord synth jabs alternating in EQ/phaser/flanger/stereo effect layers.
Lucid dreaming heartbeat house. Field recordings and textures recorded within the last week here in Seattle. [more inside]
A nearly-finished track. Looking for suggestions. I feel like I should add a field recording of some kind, but I'm not sure what kind. I'm feeling a little bit of speech. [more inside]
A Boards of Canada-esque song that I made the day that Michael died. [more inside]
A Gameboy tribute to Charlottesville. [more inside]
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.
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.)
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...
