Frozen Feet

By Jim Wood on January 25, 2018 6:19 pm

Inspired by (but not sampled from) Juana Molina's "Los Pies Helados." (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijSaXg9rUX4) Vocals: Sarah Barthel, Phantogram remix contest "Fall in Love." Operator algorhythms switched randomly using a  M4L LFO. Tuned to F Minor.

The instrumental work on this one is really awesome.

I love LFO as an all-purpose mess-with-stuff tool.  Disorienting and wintry!

Nice, Ifelt like I tuned my radio to a station on an alien planet maybe.

The intro is marvelous. And i like the timpani-style tom fills with the female voice in the first part.
The femal voice itself is lovely... i am happy you ended with that smile

The piece I'm working on for next week has extensive use of LFOs and Device Randomizers. Stay tuned.

I used to watch Juana Molina when she was a comedian back in Argentinian tv. She was very funny. The songwriter phase took us by surprise... she's kinda awesome, I think
