Duration: 2:39
Recorded: 23 November 2009
Instruments: 4 synths, percussion
Comments: Continuing on with unusual timing, this is in 13/8. Lots of lush, fairly ‘commercial’-sounding synths and percussion. Two melodic voices were used to trigger the lead bass synth, which explains the substantial pitch variation. Not particularly dynamic, however.

Instruments: 4 synths, percussion
Comments: This is an attempt at recording something much more mainstream. A few days ago I saw Clark (and some other artists) play live, and noticed how minimal much of the content was, focusing mostly on percussion and a simple bassline. The use of slightly swung timing in many these live works was another interesting feature, and has been incorporated here.
