SITARI - experimental lizard brain calculus (underground version)

By george bowles on October 5, 2016 11:05 pm

again, another compositional conundrum. this one seemed to drag in parts and be overly long at times, but for the life of me i couldn't figure out how to edit it any more than i did, which was not much. i kept feeling like the first half or so needed to be a bit dirge-like to set up the weirdass breakbeat ending, which almost sounds as if played by a somewhat damaged cyborg freejazz drummer (kind of how i play drums in real life, tbh).

anyways, i feel like i struggle most with composition, because i get attached to the sounds i design, and also sort of get lost in the work, to be a good editor. this is another track using the linn drum sample bank i posted in the forums. still digging the sound of that particular drum machine. maybe it is because all the samples were recorded on good reel to reel tape and then transferred to computer.

this is a slowed down version of what i had made, i may speed up the first half of the song in places when i have more time, the problem being in a week it is difficult to get to know the composition of a track and what needs to be gone, and hasty edits sound like shit, so no sense in guessing about it. it was hard to get this one to pop out more, but i feel like it has a nice spatial quality to it that i didn't want to overcompress.

thanks! I think ideally i would be good in a duo or trio of electronic music producers as a sound designer, my composition skills are pretty meh. i particularly like to concentrate on coming up with interesting timbres/textures and making the whole sound both separate and together as a mass.

Yes you will make a great Sounddesigner... maybe you could sell your instrument/samplepacks. Most commercial ones I've found so far are so generic and boring...
But you also have some nice Ideas... in this track I really like the organ like part right at the beginning. It's really good with the background sounds and the drums...
If you repeat this one or two times will have a more common song structure. And maybe don't change the drum rythms too much.
But the way it is, it would be great for some video installations for example. I lately was in an exhibition "Subculture in Germany in the 1980s". There were pieces from "Einstürzende Neubauten" for example. There your music would fit in nicely.

cheers,
Gunnar

thanks again! that reminds me, i am ridiculously into autechre's newer more architectural sounding stuff, that probably bleeds into this and other areas of my life lol.
