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.
Voices, echoes, splices
Song #10 in Unu Kanto Po Semajno was an attempt to create some soothing ambient music, like blips and bleeps you'd hear on SomaFM's Space Station channel. However, It came out a twisted mutant, as you will discover. Wellpp, keep MeFi weird! Go ahead... press play, close your eyes and relaaaax.....
Just a short random sampler improv with a bit of guitar and recorder (of the plastic flute-type variety.) [more inside]
My wife Nadine decided to do a little reorganizing in the kitchen a week or so ago. I pitched in, but set up my handy little Tascam DR-05 to record the resulting racket... [more inside]
Loops of slow disorienting guitar noises, and other sound wierdness. Sections fade in and out of one another, building and cresting. I picture it akin to an adult version of riding on Willy Wonka's fucked-up boat ride. [more inside]
Carbon 7. Recorded March 9th 2013, the night comet Pan-Starrs first became visible to the naked eye in the northern hemisphere. [more inside]
By Robotic Storm Cloud. Composed in 2000 or so (!) using wave editors and Sonic Foundry Acid. Crazy samples, drum loops, the works. [more inside]
An extremely challenging experimental noise-scape with massively overdriven synth loops. [more inside]
Deconstruction and rebuild of office house dub 3.3.3 aiming for an inspiration somewhere between Boards of Canada, Nurse with Wound, Aphex Twin and proto-punk Nico/Velvet Underground. This is intentionally very experimental, abstract, noisy, tweaky, melodic and glitchy. [more inside]
This is the last track thegreatbigmulp and I did for the February "make an album in a month" challenge. [more inside]
This is a thing Mulp and I just did. HELP!!! [more inside]
Lucid dreaming heartbeat house. Field recordings and textures recorded within the last week here in Seattle. [more inside]
The second preview track to my upcoming album. [more inside]
This is a chopped up awful tv show. 53 points if you can figure out what the show is. This is a solo piece, BTW.
You and I, and he, are all who have this key [more inside]
my friend found and hacked a dollar-store musical toy duck...and this piece is made of the awful and fascinating sounds we made with it. [more inside]
Mulp and I worked on this yesterday. He played bass, synth, guitar + vocals. I did the programming, mixing + vocals. It's a rough mix, but a fun start to a new project. It features mostly instruments modded or repaired by me incidentally. [more inside]
an improvisation on my smart phone, recorded in the breakroom during my lunch break at work [more inside]
Cruising down the LA river from Griffith Park to East Side while utterly stoned on a sunny afternoon on a low key adventure past huge graffiti, booming lowriders, homeless camps and a surprising amount of nature.
Some noisy, synth-driven ambience from my new album, Never a chance.
Some shifting noise and randomness. [more inside]
Continuing with my beat-oriented theme of late. Autechre-like, but they're still 1,000 times better than I am. This one's noisy and glitchy, just the way I like it.
A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...
High dynamic range and distortion wrapped in a a heartbeat-like 73 BPM.
Something a spacecraft might hear on the edge of the solar system
2 minutes and 30 seconds of crap
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
Extra dark and ominous; uses mostly noise waveforms instead of sine waves
A 24 hour noise number. Not for the faint of heart. [more inside]
Endcaps of warbling drone punctuated by bass stabs, and a middle section of high rhythmic complexity [more inside]
And now for something completely different... this is a somewhat experimental instrumental track featuring pulsing soft noise, soft organs and a distorted xylophone, fake sitar, and off-key distant "singing."
A collaboration with non-mefite Riadsala, who sometimes records bass for me. This is a pretty strange track, with a lot of effects going on, with a weirdish tempo change into the chorus which is backed by something in the vein of guitar shredding. [more inside]
I was in Amsterdam in 1995 and found an old Billie Holiday bootleg CD. Years later I found an interesting sample on there and imported it into the totally awesome audio program....SoundEdit16. Stretched it, pulled it, squished it, doubled it and looped it. This is the end result in all of its 16bit glory. I originally released this under the name Skycraft. By "release" I mean I burned 10 copies in 1999 and gave it to Ray at The Quaker Goes Deaf in Chicago and a bunch of friends. 10 Blank CDs cost a lot back then.
Whirring, humming, clicking, wheezing dark ambient/glitch, from my new album, Unseen.
Some nasty noise, integrating samples composed from segments of executable files, spectral synthesis, and other bad sounding stuff.
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.
Is it melodic? Is it percussive? Is it industrial? Is it ambient? It is a mystery! A noise-filled mystery. (For further mysteries, look here.)
An early (circa 1999) experiment with fuzzed out guitars and a super-compressed mix, pushing ambient towards industrial. Psycho-shoegazer?
harsh noise directly inspired by an ISO of Microsoft Office (salaryman track #21)
cloeburner and I used to be in an improv noise rock band called cloeburner. When I listen to this song, I think of a majestic bald eagle, sinking slowly into a pool of lava and contemplating its own mortality. I hope you will, too.
Drifting across the waves. Some live experimental guitar ambience.
