028 – Lippitude

Another piece dreamt up in late hours, but only just completed this lunchtime. Thank goodness it’s Friday, my eyes are in need of a break from the computer screen. Made with Reaktor 5 using a couple of user library/internal ensembles, with Live providing some tonal manipulation.

023 – Schlieren

We are in the realms of experimentation. Two looped passages of a bell-like nature taken from a Reaktor User Library ensemble have been stretched, one reversed, then layered to run forward/backwards concurrently and then effected heavily with all of the little effects tools Ableton Live has in its box. The low volume is deliberate. The original transients were too much, so by filtering and limiting, we’ve a more gentle result.

021 – Vorgestern

The next few posts are likely to be odd. I say this because out of the blue this weekend my little boy showed me what he’d been up to with his camera and has stunned me.

He is on the Autistic spectrum, a joy, but he does have some struggles. Yesterday, he asked me to look at photos of ‘his world’ (his world, btw, is a model village/town, with cardboard buildings, hornby people and cars (trains are being added v.soon). He’d only been making a stop frame animation! It has floored me. It’s very rough, all hand-held, but it’s has an errie beauty. I may post a link soon.

So, as it is a little unusual, I am aiming to use this week to find something appropriate to fit his lovely (yet slightly dark) first work! Please indulge me? The open-minded amongst you will find some element you can utilise.

019 – Thelemic

Something ambient (ish) spun from Reaktor 5 and Ableton Live just a few hours ago. I apologise for the obvious ‘Jarre’ synth bit, but I couldn’t resist. This was very much straight out of my head and done in minutes. As my intention is to let you all use this stuff in any way for free (credited though…), please don’t be too hard on me for rattling out tons of odds and ends.

016 – Liquid

To tide you over, until my latest item is ready, here is a piece from about a year ago. I used only Reason and its stock Refill sounds. It has an underwater feel to me, you almost feel immersed in the sound of it.

015 – Lateral

Blame AgentPearson. It was his subliminal idea! On a serious note, don’t let this put you off my ‘normal’ stuff. This was freeform, no rules or boundaries. Created solely in Reaktor 5. Just the straight output. No additional effects etc.

014 – Prismatic

Something ambient and wonderfully repetitive from last year (it was floating around for a while before that, I think). I made it for a friend of mine from Washington state. As I don’t tend to document any process, I think it was made using Reaktor 4/5 in standalone mode with a customised .ens. It’s mostly the reverberation that takes centre stage here.
