A Festival of Free Love

By vinpous on March 20, 2016 11:46 pm

A quick piece. I started making the patch Sunday evening, realised the piece (after modifying the patch significantly) about 20 minutes before deadline.

This piece uses Faux Foe's Love City as its source material.

I am surprised with how much I like the patch, and I think at some later stage I'll develop it into a more serious work, perhaps even an eight-channel or something. Could be good. Also I discovered stutter~. Oxygen. Magnesium. (OMg)

The title: when we were curating the Love City festival cubby a few weeks ago, in my haze of sick and stress and busy, I could not for the life of me remember what the festival was called. This title pays homage to the fact that I kept calling it the "free love festival".

Once again I'm in awe of your intellectual rigor (I also like the music).

What's this "stutter - Oxygen, Magnesium" reference?

Stutter~ is an object in Max that does some neat granular playback.

Oxygen, Magnesium are elements that spell OMg (or Oh My God in the common vernacular), but I kind of like to satirise those young folks who say "oh emm gee".

I am very pleased you like the music! There is not much intellectual rigor here though.

Oh, THAT stutter ::)

Oxygen, Magnesium... You know what that is? That, my friend, is a dad joke.

Cheers, the source material is very solid, too.

ha! i love the idea of remixing/recreating each other's tracks, the title is clickbait but the description of why it's called that is nearly as good as the piece. and a dad joke! love it.

Great recording, great treatment. It feels like it captures something with great accuracy and urgency, although I don't know what that is, if that makes any sense.

It is not clickbait! Glad you enjoyed though.

The spacial elements work a treat.  Would be an experience on a multi channel setup.  It's tracks like this that make me want to delve into Max.  I need less interests/passions damn it to free up time for that.  I'll live vicariously through you for now  smile

Yeah, I reckon I'll develop that at some stage in the coming 12 or so months. This coming Monday will have another piece using the same patch. smile
