Started reading Handmade Electronic Music and got inspired to pull out the Telephone mic (like this). Proceeded to play doctor with my iMac and cel phone.

Installed some Amplitube plugins to give them a shot, and I’m pretty impressed at how versatile they seem to be. I got inspired and developed the experiment a bit, using Ableton’s arpeggiator and scale plugins, and played the scale knob to make all the chord changes.

This was done back in January but never posted as I couldn’t see a way to make much of a song out of it. I’d just listen to the whole thing looping forever. Here’s an attempt to make it change a little over time. The original inspiration (and some samples) for this one came from “Twilight in Turkey” a piece Raymond Scott composed for the Electronium, which is now owned my Mark Mothersbaugh.

Arranged field recordings made in New York and Boston with a beat. The recordings and this track were made last April; I wasn’t satisfied with the breakdown (or lack thereof) when the kids start making noise in the middle, so I’m finally just now posting it. The splashy sounds are from the fountain in front of the Brooklyn Museum, some sounds are from the Botanic Gardens next to it, and others are from the Museum of Science in Boston. Everything was recorded with a Zoom H-2.

Trying out the new Alesis io|26 interface and Behringer B-5 microphone, I made a few recordings tapping and drumming on a banjo, dobro, and various other things near the desk. Looped some to make the tones, stretched some out, and did a lot of timing correction with Live.
