Surfing an Art Opening

By Jim Wood on March 10, 2016 4:26 pm

Mac computer voice Bruce. To augment the sound of the meagre gallery attendance, I layered and looped the background chatter. Buzzy synth guitar lead processed with arpegiator linked to random M4L LFO. D Major.

I suppose some people would say that for it to be "in key" in this day and age is indeed avant-garde, heh.

Lovely track, Jim. What was the exhibition? Less glitch-voice than usual!

Cool beat on this one.  The music seems to have a happy vibe to it, too.  Sounds like a fun art opening.

Dude, surf music is definitely cutting-edge. The opening (and yes, it was fun) was at "Gallery of Mud" -- a fair distance both physically and conceptually from Santa Fe's insular "Art" market.

Reminds me of Some David Byrne stuff. Very intriguing piece of music

Great new song!!  I like the fact you are changing
the track in tempo and direction every 4 seconds.
The alienesque voice is supercute!

Short attention span smile

Bruce is one of the recent Mac voices; my favorites are Steffi (German) and Audrey (French) -- it's great fun when you have Audrey speaking from an English text -- sounds like French but makes no sense.

I really enjoy those guitar strums flickering in and out.  Very cool!

That was varying the sync repeat on the arpeggiator.

Not so hard to come up with, since the opening was sea-themed. They served Goldfish crackers, Gummy Sharks and crab-cakes ::)
