This piece is my initial attempt to play with decaying and distortion effects to create a delicate dirty brittle and melancholic sound. I’ve taken a small loop of a monophonic brass instrument recording and created several loops with slightly different start and end points. I’ve then layered them adding decay and distortion of varying amounts to each single layer and groups of layers. It’s a shift away from my lusher soundscapes.
It almost sounds like it’s from analogue tape. Tape is a medium I’d like to experiment with. I think this would be a richer piece for it.
It’s something that suits my mood right now.
