January 11, 2016 12:22 am

YES YES YES. Everything about this: YES.

Your video is excellent, little-scale aesthetic nailed.

oh, just the Lex Luger kit and operator in Live.

so lovely

I wish I could write stuff like this, it's super relaxing

January 11, 2016 12:42 am

deep and lush as always heart

I really like all the space you left in the melodic lines of the instruments. It really allows the reverb to reinforce the space of the song in a great way.

January 11, 2016 12:53 am

thanks for the music smile

January 11, 2016 1:01 am

Deep breaths loving it

January 11, 2016 1:05 am

January 11, 2016 1:45 am

Loving the constrain and the visuals really frame the best bits nicely

January 11, 2016 2:10 am

So fine.

January 11, 2016 2:16 am

Yeah, lovely allaroundtown.

Those de-tuned instruments are pretty sick. Love this track. Good first showing.

January 11, 2016 3:46 am

Perpetually on the money. So vibe.

January 11, 2016 3:51 am

Augh, so beautifully warped and ethereal. Fantastic. heart heart heart

January 11, 2016 3:55 am

ugh can't see the video sad really like this... reminds me of an Amon Tobin track on valium wink

January 11, 2016 5:50 am

This track is so so nice, enjoyed every second of it! Love your work!

January 11, 2016 6:10 am

You're cool

spot on, bravo, kudos! very nice.

January 11, 2016 8:23 am

Very relaxing and atmospheric piece... Are those black spaces algoritmically generated, right? Seems like the "plasma" effect but with black pixels

January 11, 2016 8:32 am

yessssssssss

the ebb and flow between the abrupt reverbtrailstops and the cascading notes works really well here.

great question. so, its basically controlled digital video feedback, where pixel displacement is controlled via data ramps generated from the same MIDI data that also generates note events (probably: kicks, snares, hats). Not sure if that fully answers your question, but the process is quite controlled.

Yes, I guess I could picture it more less. I've been following your M4L patches for a while, although I'm myself a Pd kinda guy smile

I'll try to achieve something similar in Processing, and I hope I could show you my own take on your algoriths. Anyway, it's a good start to know you use the MIDI data as seed, apart from being a simple boolean trigger.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh.  So good.  That matched video.... :-o

January 11, 2016 5:03 pm

lovely piece.  the 'bends' reminded me of souvlaki era slowdive in a way.

January 11, 2016 6:21 pm

Beautiful piece with a fine atmosphere.  Digging the sparse guitar, deep beat, sense of space all around.  Excellent work!

As the incessant rain falls on Neo-Toronto, Inspector Tracy sits at the window of his apartment with a glass of cheap whiskey in one hand, watching half a city move through the neon streets towards a million different destinations.

Badass.

Man, Operator is doing a great track of the string tone.  Massive bass with nice cuts of percussion.  Dig the noise washes.
