I didn't manage to finish this by yesterday, so while I am on time for my streak, it kinda messes up my "November Noise" theme.

I still had a lot of fun with this one. I wanted to play with tonality and implied rhythm while remaining adjacent to pure noise.

Unplugged signal cable via Hysteresis set the flavor and flow, then freeform electric toothbrush bass and synth on top of it

Opps. Forgot this week. Hard electro.

Exploration of designing bass from scratch, usual fight on mixing stage which I don't know whether I lost or not. What do you think about bass sound guys?

Footworkish track in the style of Ital Tek(i hope so at least), definitely far from being a completed track, but a promising sketch. In comparison with my first submission here( ) , which is by chance also a footwork try, this sketch is clearly a level up! Thanks to this site and all of you guys who keep posting submissions and supporting this streak!

Also I should stop abusing late submitting and produce 2 well made tracks next week without procrastinating till the very end.

This one came together kind of unexpectedly--I'd wanted to use my new(-ish) acoustic guitar, a size 2 parlor guitar from Vintage Parlor Guitars. The unexpected bit was that the first rhythm I had in mind worked best with a simple kit built up from Ableton's Operator FM synth--so the track first seemed to have a kind of Autechre direction. I threw in some Operator bass, and some Simpler with grand piano and prepared piano samples, and put in a return channel of convolution reverb with the Fort Worden cistern impulse response.

While I tracked several electric bass lines, I didn't end up using them--they weren't quite working with the rest of the track.

At the end, I impulsively put acoustic guitar in the second half (recorded with a Karma Mics condenser-in-XLR-body), and it pretty much worked, especially with some normal-room convolution reverb on a send. There's also some Waves Factory Cassette plugin on the grand piano. I'd initially had it on the guitar, but it just mainly made it sound bad.

There's some Full-Chain Master on the output, a bit of automation to the sends, and an additional send with Ableton Echo. And that's about it.

Title from the half-life of the longest-living isotope of Fermium (element 100).

Sadly had to break my streak last week due to an ear infection that, sadly, I'm still not quite over. In fact my hearing is borked, everything sounds out of tune, almost chipmunk-y. Hopefully that'll sort itself out soon. Anyway, made a simple 90s thumpin' beat to get through the murk in my middle ear.

Series on unfinished ideas around similar note clusters.

I was working on my National Solo Album Month entry when I realized that I needed a song that was toward the end of the album that doesn't have as much energy as the song before it.

I released the album. It's a bit of a hack because it's super improvisational.

Uploading the full mixtape of last week's "restauration" project. Hope you enjoy the trip!

Not sure what style this is supposed to be.
