I've managed to get myself behind again :/
Another hip hop thing, piano from the Wavestation doing the bulk of the work, Neutron on bass, PO-32 on the drums and Blofeld for some pads.
Pretty happy with this, gonna try and get some lyrics and cuts recorded over it.
Another busy week, but this track still came together. I've been listening a lot to John Zorn's The Book Beri'ah, and wanted to do something with a syncopated danceability like many of the pieces there. I put up a Drum Rack (64-pad jazz) through a severe gate (influence of the new Burial there), and then...just responded to it on bass. Then I responded to that with more bass, added hand claps and percussion, and then a layer of baglama-tuned Heit Deluxe guitar. A touch of reverb and a bit of automated delay on the drums/percussion...and here we are.
Title from one of the properties of this week's element, osmium.
Rough sketch. Next week, I'll try to work on this and do a better mix.
Initially, the project started as "practice emotion", to try to invoke a particular emotion or mood. I didn't do a good job though because I didn't really choose the mood before I started the song. I'll probably take this and try to make it more of a somber tune but with an underlying sense of tension. Maybe for next week?
I had a lot of fun jamming around and recording this... so naturally I ran out of time when editing and mixing. I think it unintentionally came out really similar to Manuel Göttsching's E2 E4. One of those projects that I will come back to later when I need pieces and ideas.
