More concertina and bayan based minimalist weirdness, this time with trombone! Noisy bits are just clickety clacking the bayan's keys, and crumpling some paper.
Digging back into some old ambient/noise/drone ideas. Synth, guitar, and bowed cymbal. [more inside]
Voices, echoes, splices
I'm working on a set of songs/sounscapes for a friend's online comic project. This is a spooky ambient piece using some recordings I made of a guy moving chairs around in a cathedral in Vienna, some sleep breathing, some musical saw, and a weird broken African instrument a friend gave me.
Should be evocative (of something) in and of itself. Don't know, really. One of those things... [more inside]
Not sure how to describe this one, but I sampled a lot of disparate stuff and used some found sound I have.
Listen, a song by Sredni Vashtar. Recorded, as usual, at rehearsal. The loop drones throughout and the guitar and bass are sparse and simple.
Here's an old song from Sredni Vashtar, revamped, restructured and recorded at rehearsal a few weeks ago [more inside]
This began as an improvised piece involving a Poly Evolver synth, a Memory Man pedal, and an iPhone running Moog Filtatron. Then I decided to bury everything in noise, fuzz and tape flutter until it became nigh-unlistenable. Enjoy!
Welcome to Teen Island (Season One). We here at MTV started this reality show with the best of intentions. But things have gone horribly, horribly wrong. [more inside]
Noise and feedback. Swirling, swirling, swirling! [more inside]
Some shifting noise and randomness. [more inside]
A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...
Something a spacecraft might hear on the edge of the solar system
In the soundtrack to my life, this song is the last two days. [more inside]
A dark, drone/noise piece that develops slowly
A relaxing drone; noise waveforms are dominant again
A few minutes of crazy space noise and strange particle interactions. [more inside]
Endcaps of warbling drone punctuated by bass stabs, and a middle section of high rhythmic complexity [more inside]
An ambient noise / drone piece with a dark mood.
More ambient / noise / drone stuff. [more inside]
My second song ever, made in Ableton Live. I figured out how to use the automation controls for better fades in/fades out, and I think it has a cleaner sound overall than my first one. Comments welcome.
My first song; made in Ableton Live 7 LE. It's a drone/ambient noise piece. Comments welcome, but please be gentle. (Warning: high dynamic range, starts out quiet, but gets loud.) [more inside]
just a random idea i had. droning synth with vocals.
Music for unseasonable weather.
Many layers of distortion and sampling create a blanket of noise that I find beautiful and terrifying. Please to be playing this as loud as possible.
Dark ambience with strange, swelling synths. Okay, I admit it, I can't even remember recording this track.
Here's one of my earlier experiments in drone music. It's electric guitar, played live through delay, fuzz and volume pedals.
