SITARI - behind the veil

By george bowles on January 10, 2016 5:41 am

peel back the surface, view what is beyond the veil of reality

Just got a Korg Volca beats, and been having a lot of fun sequencing beats on it. a little limited, but also, not as limited as one might think. i forgot they also have a sampler now so I wish i would've got that instead, but now, I guess I'll have to get both!

also running it through some fx pedals. generated several different beats, used one set for some black metal project and used these with a little less fx from the pedals and more from the computer. also this is a mashup of another track that i was not happy with on its own, but it made a cool overlay for this track. lots of stuff going on with this one, typical Sitari.

Nice and dense, also enjoying the volca beats, I find some of the fun is in the limitations the volca provides

Yeah it does have a round, full sound with the humming and high-pitched percs. Interesting in seeing what this tool can do with more instruments in the mix

thanks man! yeah, big korg fan here, nice sound quality for an affordable device. the funnest part is being able to shift so many gears on the fly with a drum machine, not used to being able to do that.

Almost makes me want to start using hardware again.

Almost.

Quite an experimental take on the secrets of the Volca... I love that black box!

Curious whay you could do with its cousin the Korg SQ-1, and happy to have so many familiar faces back in WB2016!

I really like the slow manipulation and the wide stereo spread.  It's like hanging out on a factory loading dock, just listening to the pounding, vibrating sounds of industry. (As a Rust Belt native, that's a compliment.)

This one needs to be played loud!

Interesting stuff. Is there Bi-naural stuff going on here?

thanks for checkin it out and for commenting! i do think there is some sort of unintentional binaural esque thing going on. am using some types of reverbs from Reaktor as well as stereo processing in Reaper, and multiple sample sources and layers. all kinds of weird stuff going on. I will just edit this down a bit probably.

I love the experimental nature of your work.  That "car revving sound" that appeared really gave me chills.  This song is scary, in a great way.  Excited to hear some black metal from you!  I want to get in on that as well sometime this year.

many thanks on the comment! i have yet to fully absorb this track, it was created at an interesting time of life. here is an album of black metal/grindcore/death metal I made back in 2012 for weeklybeats: https://eidrecords.bandcamp.com/album/nebulous-peril it's very experimental as well.
