Spicy Curry

I almost didn't do WB this year, but I made some life changing decisions just a few days ago, and then I made some less life changing decisions about how I could feasibly put together a track every week without going crazy.

The only real "rule" I'm setting for myself is that I'm using my Zoom H4n in MTR (4-track) mode for pretty much all the recording. This sets clear limits, while also making my recording rig mobile, allowing me to work on tracks in more places, at more times, and with any gear I have access to.

So this week I used:
• a Yamaha RX17 drum machine, on loan from a friend, through Earthquaker Devices Dirt Transmitter and Ghost Echo, as well as the Sub 37 filter
• a Moog Sub 37 (bassline)
• a 1926 Paramount plectrum banjo, currently on loan from someone who may sell it to me
• a Dave Smith Mono Evolver (synth leads)
• the Electric Loom, an instrument I built a long time ago, consisting primarily of a set of snare wires suspended over a piece of wood (played here with an eBow)
• my voice (kindof)

Man, this is a super crazy ensemble of instruments that works better than I would've expected! Super fun heart

This is perfect, I hope you continue recording stuff sounding like this! Any pics of the Loom? Never heard of those.

I like the idea of limitation - makes me want to try the challenge. Looking forward to the tunes Matt. smile
