299 – Fracture

Woke again to a head filled with high-pitched interference and sounds that appear to be fractured. It could have been triggered by playing a little too much with some bell samples yesterday. This piece is the result of that play.

298 – 5am

Niall was up in the night and once I had him settled, I was wide awake and it was 3am. I decided to try and create something to fit the stillness of the night outside and the pending sunrise. By 5am, it was complete.

I think this fitted the scene. I hope you do also.

297 – Luminous

Made as the sun was setting last night and finished as it rose this morning.

296 – Lips Stained Blue

In an effort to create something in a minimal amount of free time (work is busy), I set upon the idea of playing with ice cream van chimes. In the early hours of this morning, I made this using a very warbled and noisy sample.

It has an eerie and very melancholic sound, evoking a lost time, a faded snapshot of summers passed.

What do you think? Should I do more?

295 – Running Scared [ambienteered]

I took the winning Azerbaijan Eurovision 2011 entry and played around with a short sample of it using Ableton Live, Max for Live and Paulstretch.

Short, but sweet. Hope you like it?

294 – Resin

Finding it hard to create right now and it’s little accidental discoveries of found sounds whilst out, as well as late nights of trawling though hard drives, packed with odd samples, that are managing some sort of output to be possible. My current work appears to be a little too ‘out there’ for some it seems, but it’s where my head is.

I love the sound of resin on strings… so maybe this piece is a little more accesible?

293 – Ablution

Whilst at the local hospital I had a chance encounter with a ‘singing’ tap (faucet, for my stateside friends).

Luckily, I take my Zoom everywhere and despite some protesting glances, I grabbed a few seconds of its screeching beauty.

This has been stretched, layered and effected a little to become almost a free-form ambient jazz piece.

It won’t be for everyone.

292 – Background Hum

Woke to another dawn chorous riddled with tinnitus interference. Grabbed a couple of incidental background field recordings and noodled around with them to compliment the aural effect in my head.
