about

Tracks made summer/fall 2021

"Rhodes Dub" - actually a playing a virtual Rhodes emulation (AAC Lounge LIzard as it happens)  through a particularly gnarly space echo.

"Zyzzyx" - ends up kinda being techno but also ... something else? All I really want is a lead sound, some drums and a bassline.

"Attakenini" - hectic techno drums drive a bouncy polyphonic ostinato, with a really rude bassline.

"Disphemism" - Beatless, meandering, glitchy ambience, fractally disassembled by an abused live sampler.

"Octothorpe" - trying to hit that Fennesz sweet spot where something really musical and meditative rubs against an undomesticated, chaotic sound that ebbs and flows beneath it.

"Archipelago" - an exploration in sequencing chords to a slowed down house beat. The treble sound that dominates the second half of the piece that swoops and dives comes out of an interaction between chaotic chord changes constrained to a scale by a quantizer. It was a sound that came as a complete surprise. The best kind.
