This week's piece grew organically from a few drum patterns I put down (one of 808 single-hit samples, one from 909 single-hits). I had an initial synth bass I took out, but did some Ableton Analog synth over them, before replacing the synth bass with Epiphone P-J (through EQ-8 for sub-100Hz rolloff), and tracking clean (through bandpass Auto-Filter with drive and Cabinet) and distorted (Reuss RF-01 and Vox Wah) Epiphone Moderne.
Sends: one convolution reverb (to a medium-sized tracking room space) and one Echo (Dub Syndicate, with timing tweaked). Auto-pan on almost everything. I used automation to send the 808 to the Echo channel. Full-chain Master on the 2-buss.
Title is from one of the applications of this week's element, Cerium, which can increase the stability of pigments exposed to light.
Ooh, I wanna be so round for 'ou
with your cricket glove fingers in ma mooth
there is value in digging in the pyre and feeling where you never have been
the christ shot up and mentioned you
take me down to brown town
and delay me out
ooh, I wanted to get this stain and explore for all of the ways
ooh, I wanted to get this way for you, my baby
Ooh, I wanna be so around for you, hun
I wear my creepy glove, finger in the mootha
I wanna, wanna be so around for you, my babe
with the finger glove, cricket in the mootha
wet witches watch and wait by the lever
loves closing down
burn, baby, burn
Industrial improv track based roughly off of the improv live performance I did this afternoon at the local Modular Synth meetup. (Hint: The live performance, which I didn't record, was better).
Done in Eurorack modular, featuring mostly Basimilus Iteritas Alter, Cursus Iteritas, DubJr Mk2, and Cat.
Another drum and bass song that came about with me working on my sound design and drum sample making. Not particularly pleased with it (went through MANY variations of the song and still not happy) but there are some things to be saved from this track. Let me know if you like anything!
