This week I had another hardware project planned, but due to work schedule I ended unable to have those machines at my disposal, so I migrated to a different idea, using the great and still mostly unknown Ardour Linux DAW... However, last friday I got sick and wasn't able to do much music (or anything else for that matter) in a couple of days.
Finally I dug in my 2009 vaults and found an Ableton sketch full of all the wrong things from a producer standpoint BUT, lets not forget I was under some medication and a soft fever. Long story short, I made this weird piece which for some really strange reason sounded "folky" to me.
Not happy with it, I decided to dump the whole mix (really close to the deadline) and use it as a background for some creepy old tape effect. Little I knew then that my old cassette deck's motor wasn't playing at the proper speed, so when bounced back to Ableton everything was out of sync, and I had to warp the living s**t out of it (remaining just 25 minutes to the deadline).
So... warped up weird glitch song plus real wabbly tape bounces. Fever and a weird text from an ex girlfriend I have not seen in 3 years... Makes any sense? I guess not, but I should be sleeping and sweating anyway.
Promise to post a picture of my fucked up Celine Dion cassette used in this recording... NO KIDDING
Update: Here's the infamous wabbly-as-hell tape (picked up from a car so I guess it spent a few times under direct sunlight)
Slight touches to the mix and a more elaborate ending, sort of. I didn't want to overthink this one and lose the "hazy" feeling
So I guess I owe some inspiration to The Best Artist In the World herself
