Many recordings

September 7th, 2009

Lots of recordings done over the weekend – some better than others, but all uploaded here nonetheless. The two attributes that I was concentrating on in all these recordings were; short set-up and preparation time; and more attention to musical form and structure. They are presented below from most preferred to least.

Duration: 2:37
Recorded: 7 September
Instruments: 4 synths, percussion
Comments: This wasn’t an attempt at modelling, but it ended up sounding very Plaid-like anyway. Long intro with some mildly dissonant parts. Good bass sound at 1:50.

Duration: 3:37
Recorded: 5 September
Instruments: 4 synths, percussion
Comments: 3/4 time signature, no Lemur control. A little bland, but pleasant. Structurally quite solid.

Duration: 2:21
Recorded: 7 September
Instruments: 4 synths, percussion
Comments: Kind of a raucous, messy Aphex thing. The unpitched sounds could have been chosen a little better, but the Roland-style acid bass instrument was a success.

Duration: 1:55
Recorded: 7 September
Instruments: 4 synths, percussion
Comments: Some sort of dub or trip-hop. Again, unpitched sounds are rather hastily chosen, but the tuned percussion worked well.

Filename: immur_deviate_ds_Sep09.mp3
Duration: 1:51
Recorded: 6 September
Instruments: 4 synths, percussion
Comments: Experimenting with some acoustic bowed sounds. Some dissonant moments at the outset. Didn’t really have any good ideas during this recording, so it ended up being rather stagnant.

Filename: aucun_deviate_ds_Sep09.mp3
Duration: 1:17
Recorded: 6 September
Instruments: 4 synths, percussion
Comments: Wow, I did not like this at all. A too-fast BPM (around 170) combined with pattern restarting, poorly chosen synths, and too many notes results in a very dull result. Lesson learned.
