This is sublime. So disorienting despite its beat. I love it.

I'm digging the sound on this one a lot.  Some of the altered vocals sound like some really sick synth tones.

great work on the vocals! Reminds me a little bit of Mathhew Herbert's better work. Love it!

Thanks, guys! I hadn't listened to much Herbert, but I notice there's an interview with him on the Ableton site. I'll check it out.

You should indeed, cause he's a very interesting guy! He's very intellectual in his approach to music. Always an interesting read!

Fantastic, still no idea how you pull this off, dope glitch beat, agree parts of it remind me of Herbert's Bodily Functions album

Wonderful track, strange and glitchy, but still groovy.

June 16, 2016 1:19 pm

you deserve some kind of IDM award for this'n! fav'd

Great! It's always a fun experience to hear your work. Hadn't thought of it at first but agree with the Herbert references.

Great work. Highly recommendable.

Exciting what you do here!
Great rhythmic vocals

Trippy vocal work fo sho! smile Love how the vocals change up towards the last third of the track. Nice work smile

This is such a weird track, but I dig it. I like the use of experimentation with the voices. What made you choose C F# and B as the notes for your auto-tuned voices?

Tritone and seventh (maximum dissonance in a "tonal" context). Low-level pretentious thinking, in other words. ::)

Nah it's not pretentious. It's a dissonant concept.
