Gas Leak

Cave music, stumbling upon a gas leak

I think I technically started this for like week 10 or something, but got no further than the first four bars.
A lot of the percussion sounds are stuff I recorded with the built-in mic (denoiser turned off) on my 2011 MacBook Pro while hanging out in an art studio.

I also used a recording of my theremin playing a steady note at a band rehearsal I had on tour in October 2012 and a scream/kick drum/noise/synth layer moment from a solo set I played out in the woods of northern MI the August before that.

Oh, I happen to have a photo from that show. Possibly of that scream!

41 bpm was a big mistake because I had to work with 64th notes and smaller in order to get any kind of stuttering effects

Intentionally uploaded at 160kbps because I MAKE THE DECISIONS 'ROUND HERE DANGIT

This is great. Reminds me of Squarepusher's stompier moments. Like!
