An ambient/drone piece from my newly released album Float (pay-what-you-want on Bandcamp). I'm breaking a habit of expressing anxiety and foreboding through my music, and aiming to spread some tranquility and wonder instead. [more inside]
From my newly released album of the same name, at starthief.bandcamp.com. Something on a spectrum of drone/ambient/abstract electronica. [more inside]
A very brief (50s) sketch I worked up on the train the other day. Crunchy synth bass drone in conversation with a ringing guitar (also synthesized).
Voices, echoes, splices
Not sure how to describe this one, but I sampled a lot of disparate stuff and used some found sound I have.
Slow, drony, monochordal, minimalist, ambient electro.
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]
A lush electronic meets shoegaze(?) song influenced by a Steve Reich piece. [more inside]
A song I made for an animated movie that might exist about people that are addicted to stars. [more inside]
happy drone; space is nice
A bassy electronic song that might or might not be about changing tampons. [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
A dark, drone/noise piece that develops slowly
A relaxing drone; noise waveforms are dominant again
Dark and moody. Lots of reverb. This is my fourth generative piece.
A song about how humans fool pests to kill them, from the pest's point of view. Made today in 2 hours. [more inside]
A quiet, haunting track with drones, chimes, and muted bass beats [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.
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.
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.
The bees argue, in their black ball, A flying hedgehog, all prickles. The man with grey hands stands under the honeycomb Of their dreams, the hived station Where trains, faithful to their steel arcs, Leave and arrive, and there is no end to the country.
Everybody seems to think it's so important that you have to grab for money all the time. Seems to be the main goal in everybody's life.
Downtempo track played live with improvised noise bits and fx. For more, see http://www.albertoforero.com
