The Bridge

By Plantrain on January 24, 2016 7:50 pm

Several tracks of acoustic drums and two field recordings. Nothing else as recorded material.
Some tracks comparatively clean, some tracks processed beyond recognition.
My attempt at percussion music.

Great drumsounds, rhythmic feeling. I wish I could
complete my mathrockproject with you on drums.

I love the tension of that high pad (field recording rail scraping?) against the impulses of the percussion. Really nice piece.

Thanks, I don't think I'd be able to play this in a single take though. :-)

The drums were recorded at a rehearsal session where I only had a single stereo mic available, so to make it possible to mix it was split into five takes: the main beat, the snare rolls, the cymbals and two tracks of floor tom, all recorded separately.

Thank you so much, the high pad is from the 'processed beyond recognition'-category: a recording of standing in the snow in the forest with very few recordable sounds around. The final result is more attributable to Absynth than to the original recording.
