Birds Aren't Real

By miraclemiles on October 11, 2020 11:35 pm

Our travellers continue their voyage through space and time. They arrive at an intersting moment: School is taught online by semi-autonomous robo-teachers. It appears there's a new lesson on page "Bird" of the learning books: Birds Aren't Real. They never were. They're mechanical, and they have a purpose. How could we have thought otherwise? This sends the travelers deep into the introspection and the mesmerizing complexity of space and transient time. The birds follow. We don't care if they are real. They have joined us. Or have we joined them?

Like last weeks, all sounds in this track are from a live in-person improvised session with fellow weekly beatista License and our fellow traveler D Money. I played Circuit Monostation for bass and leads, some Kaoss pad voice sounds, D-Money with voices on the Mininova vocoder, License on the 0-coast, and Octatrack for drums duties. I chopped and re-arranged, but have not otherwise altered or edited anything we played.

Here's our full session I made this from:

Fun, trippy sequel to last week's time travel adventure.  Nice groove and an interesting concept, to say the least.

There's so much to enjoy here. Really love how the track ebbs and flows through a few different ideas.

I sometimes ask myself, how would W.A.Mozart react to such music, if he would have heared it for the first time....? I am shure he would be very inspired.

Vocoder stuff is so sick. Love it

Love how the adventure continues to unfold, great vocoder work and nice space vibe bleeps and blips with the synths.  Kind of reminds me of Space Dimension Controller’s album “Welcome to Mikrosector-50”

This is alien music. Love it. The inhuman beat, the vocoder and the BIRDS!

The vocoder is pretty sick especially when you break it down a bit and it gets all warbly.  Trippy synths with that chill beat.  If only my cat realized the birds outside the window are not......
