Here’s a short little music/video sketch. I’m toying with the idea of putting out an album of of dare I say ambient type music, built upon these ideas. In a way, putting these bits up actually motivates me to finish them, and not just have an ever expanding collection of unfinished works.

I also truly enjoy sketching/experimenting with video too.

 

 

Inspired by this silent video that coyote_fur posted on Instagram, I immediately heard a glimpse of what kind of musical climate might accompany such a strange and alien world.

This was a quick little composing sketch utilizing sounds from my hand made sample libraries rigged up in Kontakt, and some customized Chromophone patches. There’s a good amount of low end to this track, so kick on the good stereo or sub-woofers…

Thanks to Mr. Taylor for letting me use his Instagram video.



An experiment replacing the snare with a 14″ floor tom, an octoban played with the left foot, and no proper high hat. Featuring FMP percussion and Istanbul Agop cymbals. I often get inspired by different setups, mixing things up a bit, and seeing what happens. This groove appeared soon after setting up a 26″ Gothic Radius cymbal which compliments the toms. Technical note: This was the first time had used Michel Joly modded Oktava 219 mics on the toms.

A quiet groove that I can imagine someone like Jon Hassell or Brian Eno layering some soundscapes on top of.
