So here's that period of the year where we kinda have some more free time...do we? :)) This piece is about time and is longer than the recent ones, even if it keeps the same ingredients: Korg Wavestate for most of the parts of the track (this time having several programmes and using a looper to add layers) and an electric guitar.
We're getting close, people!
Something more contemplative (?) for the end of year mood. I should probably go back and make this track even more shorter and minimalistic though!

Kind of a followup to last week's piece. After several experimentation sessions on the Lyra-8 over the last two days, I recorded this one live take using what I had found. No guitar or drums samples this time, just the Lyra and Valhalla Supermassive reverb.

Speedtrash of the week! I had the bass riff, loosely inspired by a new track from one of my favorite punk bands. But i had only that on Sunday night, so just added random horror samples, a disco beat and some silly synth lines. Leave in the oven 20 minutes, serve hot. Disco Terror.
Seems like picking up an acoustic guitar always opens up inspiration, I kinda feel it's always the same tuning, the same picking patterns or progressions that come up, often a bit rushed and improvised, bit still, I really enjoyed playing this one. I had fun experimenting with various reverbs and delays post-recording (Harrison GVerb+, Dragonfly Reverb, Calf delays, Shiroverb...). The title comes from the fog that's been here sometimes for the whole day lately and gives a strange color to the days and perception of time.
did some interesting stuff in this one, used a crossfade between two EQ profiles controlled by an oscillator controlling the pulsewidth of the synth for the bassline, the strings use a hyperosc, which I thought would be boring because it can't really be modulated, but I decided to have multiple instances of hyperosc with different settings and crossfade modulating the crossfade with another hyperosc lol. Proud of the mood I set in this one
Still mining that guitar-only thing with the recent resonator network, though this time I was using the PureSalem Mendiola. Through the resonator, it sounded a lot more like a banjo and less like a rubab, so I leaned into it. This one's very banjo-friendly front-porch picking music. I'm kind of digging the vibe here.
Rhythm guitar got a bit of low-end rolloff with EQ-8, and the mix got the Wide & Warm audio effect rack.
The title comes from two towns in VA and WV near RT 102, which kind of echoed the country-ish flavor here.
