Morning Birds 11a - MLR

By fieldcollage on February 7, 2020 5:43 pm

Every morning I set my audio recorder in my back yard and record the goings on.

These are available on Audius here: https://audius.co/fieldcollage/playlist/morning-birds-4615

Often birds, always construction, sometimes wind chimes.

I used the MLR library (https://llllllll.co/t/mlr-norns/21145) for Norns to live loop and sample my recording from 2/4.

This composition is part of a 120 minute tape recorded on my Tascam 414 which, when played back on different machines at different speeds, reveals different parts of itself.

Interesting.  I can hear some more industrial sounds that could be construction but also some guitar and bass tones, assuming those were added in as live playing, or are they a different sampled source? The guitar sounds like an animal. Like the trumpeting of an elephant!

Actually, 100% of the sounds in this composition came from my back yard recording! The bass sound is an airplane and the melodic guitar-ish sounds are a circular saw.
