Lullaby #3 - Awake in the other room

By kevanatkins on February 28, 2016 2:57 pm

Another to add to the Lullaby series. However, this time it's not based on a generative work. This one is more a nod to Brian Eno who featured quite prominently in my listening rotation when I was a teenager.

This one actually includes a live instrument, which is the first for this year. My piano slowed stretched pitch-shifted multiple times in various directions, each time adding glitches to the recording. Kind of like copying a video tape too many times. The rest is various processing chains treating that signal giving it a bit more movement to the persistent, modal chords.

I did have to squish this down to 64kbps. But this will be available elsewhere soon enough in much higher resolution.

Enjoyable track to listen to. Before clicking in to read your description, I thought the compression was intentional. It fits the mood of the song very well I think.

Thanks. Well, there wasn't a whole lot happening in the high end anyway. When I A-B'd the mp3 and the 48/24 wav, the difference was really quite subtle once I picked the right encoder settings.

This is is freaking beautiful, Kevan! I love how (relatively) subtle the time stretching is, and I agree with Pyure; the compression really seems to suit. Really great stuff, quite inspiring. Might dig out an old piano recording of my own and do something slow. This slow music thing is enjoyable to me this year, and to you it would seem.

I wrote that comment before I got to the end - SHIT GETS REAL. Or whatever the saying is.

Really top stuff.
