334 – Yclept

Sorry it’s been so long since I posted something new. I have been sidetracked by a combination of work and homelife issues. I have been struggling to make anything, other than my contributions to the Disquiet Junto project.

Here’s a piece made in the early hours of the last two nights. It evolved through playing with the randomisation function of Absynth to created a rich layer of sounds all playing the same, simple riff. A few other samples have been included to give it a little momentum and richness.

It goes by the name of Yclept. ;)

I hope you like it?

New Tools

I have finally succumbed and purchased my first iPad and have immediately set about installing a few of the apps recommended on the various blogs and forums I look to for advice.

I have recently been part of the brilliantly conceived Disquiet Junto project by Marc Weidenbaum and have come to enjoy the idea of constraint as part of the creative process. What may seem as a step back in terms of raw computing power, sophisticated DAW apps and plug-ins, could actually help forge my sound and point it into a fresh direction. Pieces may be solely created on the iPad or I may use it as starting point and transfer ideas to my main PC for completion. Who knows? Time will tell, although at least an EP of iPad only stuff is my minimal aim.

I don’t, as yet, have a midi/audio interface, but one is planned when finances allow for it. The list of apps I have initially installed is as folllows… Animoog, Sound Prism Pro, NLog Pro, Sunrizer, csGrain, Mega Curtis, Space and Node Beat. I’ve yet to decided on something to pull these together, such as Nano Studio, but I will update this list soon.

It may take a little time for things to come to fruition but hopefully it will be worth the wait.
