There are times where the sounds become a mantra, a forever loop of reverberations activating mind and spirit. This is where I feel I want to work to go. Mind you, this does not necessarily mean peaceful or serene. Or passive.
Not much to write this evening, spent the day playing with patches until I found the particular sound that was right the build the piece at the link.
This one came slowly over the course of the entire day. I would go and work at it for an hour or two and then kept wanting to tweak something with the sound and how it sounded when recorded. I do admit that sometimes things get a little cloudy, not necessarily a bad thing; but one of those things one would rather do on purpose for effect.
It is feeling more and more normal to shift attention towards the Matriarch, using a level or two of automation in Ableton Live helps to keep a flow going. I sense the pieces are getting longer and longer (in tiny increments) and this feels very much like my initial experiments could lead me to sessions of one to three hours with very little effort.
Listening to “Kinka” by Carter Tutti, live at LEM festival. This is the perfect picture of where I want to take sound. The use of rhythm to enrapture and then sound to displace is so tenderly applied.
Tonight [… and recorded earlier today…] straight from the Matriarch/Subhamonicon dynamic duo; no messing with samples or over dubs at all. Just going with where my patch took me. I am so completely falling heads over heels for this.
