This piece is the first in series of noisy, glitchy and v.electronic sounding tracks. I have struggled to create anything with melody recently, so I decided to switch to using Reaktor ensembles, utilising randomisation and self-generating sound modules.
I’m struggling to be creative again. A work project that is pushing me way out of my usual sphere of expertise, the imminent arrival of darker, colder, wetter months and a hundredweight of thoughts are not helping.
This piece is not reflective of my usual work, but is an attempt to put down a aural example of just how my mind is working right now. I’m OK, but I really miss my more prolific bursts of sonic output. Where did it all come from and where did it all go?
This v.experimental piece is a recording taken yesterday of the automatic doors of a supermarket in Addlestone, Surrey. It’s a really amazing sound and I can’t think why they’ve chosen such noisy, if harmonic motors.
I’ve simply layered three versions of the recording, each warped a little in pitch, to thicken things, and slightly effected the overall mix with some eq and a little reverb.
I hear a sound that reminds me of childhood days playing in tower block lifts, with the sound of the wind whistling through the elevator shafts in which we travelled along with the clunks, clicks and the singing electrical motors.
Hope you like it?
Just a little announcement to let you know that my latest release ‘hiemal’ is now available to download for free from Bandcamp. Grab it while you can as Bandcamp does limit the number of free versions.
Yet another piece born from a period of awakening well before the dawn arrived.
It’s a soundtrack to rhythmically nurse you back to your dreams whilst you watch the moon and stars light up the sky outside your bedroom window.
Worked for me.
Here is the thirty-first compilation that I have made for you all.
Consider checking out all my releases on Bandcamp? You can grab pristine versions of most of my work so far and have a variety of formats to choose from. They are free to download, but if you can contribute a just couple of pounds/euro/dollars, it would help and delight me v.much.
Thanks for your support.
There are two zip files, one for lower bitrate MP3s and the other for the rather better 320kbps files.
All of the tracks here are free for you to download and distribute.
My latest EPs ‘diunmenge’ and ‘frequencies’ are up at http://ambienteer.bandcamp.com
Please take a look and grab a copy or anything else you fancy.
There really is no obligation to buy anything, but if you feel you can, please do so. It will help me cover the costs of running this blog and making more for you all in the future.
