We are having a fire tonight so i decided to take out my field recorder to collect some sounds to process, all the sounds you hear in the last clip of the below video were made by processing only the sounds taken from the fire.
Absolutely amazing. Very brief, but worth a listen. This is the beauty of Ableton.
It’s raining surprisingly hard here southern California, hell, it’s even thundering! It’s making me miss Portland like crazy. I know Burial uses samples of rain, and Eskmo posted on his Facebook that he is recording the rain today too.
So I pulled my mic out and have been recording the rain…
(For the record, that’s an Audio-Technica AT2020)
And here it is! I uploaded Nightshapes EP as a set to Soundcloud! Give it a listen and I would be more than happy to hear feedback. I have the ask function enabled on this blog specifically for that, and should someone desire to collaborate, I also enabled submission!
This small bunch of tracks is the product of a lot of different drafts and sketches, numerous different sources of inspiration. A thank you to my good friend Draft34 for a couple interesting field recordings and samples that worked their way into Streetdaze. As some of you may recognize, Nightshapes is a reworking and extension of a previous track that didn’t feel complete or… mature enough.
Also the lovely photo was taken by Kathy
I am posting this as a link rather than as an audio upload because Tumblr can’t deal with audio uploading. I should have expected the audio set on Soundcloud to not transfer properly… I will be uploading the tracks one by one, and adding much more detailed commentary though! thanks for sticking around!
