(Production notes coming. Mostly in-the-box Ableton, with two tracks of Res-O-Glas guitar and one track of Kastle modular synth.)

Title from the nine-tailed fox of Japanese and Chinese mythology.

Here's a track I worked on little by little during the week, and it was ok, but not terribly engaging...until I went all disco-house on the drums. That got it going again.

Production notes: one drum rack of single hits of dry trap kit (auto-filter to roll off lows and highs, add some distortion, and accentuate the resonant peak of the kick, and also parallel processing with band-pass + simple delay and band-pass + grain delay), one track of 909 (auto-filter high-pass with resonant peak to pop the kick, and a low-pass to tame the highs), Impulse instrument of hand claps, and drum rack of hand percussion (auto-filtered for tone shaping).

Keys: two Electric instruments (MKI2 crunchy preset into different auto-filters: one high-pass, and one LFO band-pass). Bass: 80s Epi P-J into the board, side chained to the 909. Guitar: self-built Res-O-Glas Belmont with Alumitones into a band-pass auto-filter with drive, for the small-amp sound.

Sends: one convolution reverb (a church), and one chain of simple delay into filter delay.

Unusually for me, I used the Warm & Wide Drums mastering preset on the master channel, instead of the Full-Chain Master I usually do; this time this one sounded a bit better. Everything except bass and the trap kit got auto-pan, and all MIDI instruments got 24ms of Humanizer.

Title from some free-association from the idea of 5 (for week 5), in that we conventionally have five material senses.
