Ableton drum rack (acoustic kit through drum buss, fronted by 60ms of M4L Humanizer), four channels of guitar (Res-O-Glas through Milwaukee builder Mike Carey's hand-built tremolo pedal, with different Auto Filter settings for tone shaping), and Epiphone P-J bass, with ~10dB rolloff below 100Hz with EQ-8.


I won the pedal in the PRFBBQ raffle, and it's a great-sounding pedal. There's a level-makeup boost, the typical blend and rate controls (ranging from very-slow to probably-too-fast--that's to say that within that wide range, you'll easily find something that works).  There's a waveform control that sweeps from a square/pulse to triangle wave and slow-attack ramp, and also a switch that toggles between the expected behavior and a mode which passes high frequencies and routes bass frequencies through the tremolo.  Pretty much all of these show up in this track in one way or another.


Sends: two convolution reverbs (studio room close, studio room far), and one simple delay.


Title from the location of a shipwreck from the 14th century BC, which carried cobalt-pigmented glass ingots.

Intriguing mix of the primitive and some quite-sophisticated jazz. Overall faved.

Big atmosphere, I love the sounds you get out of that pedal! I'm picturing a lone traveler walking on a desert highway after their truck broke down, heat haze on the asphalt and all, with the resolve to get to some shade and a cool drink down the road.

I like the human touch blend by the humanizer. Also the atmosphere with the guitare effects sounds very cool.

Great jam! It starts off kinda abstract with all the effects and then really pulls together into a tight jam.

Shoutout to Milwaukee!  Woo!

great jam and excellent effects.

This is very nice and beautifully loose. I do not know why, but this reminds me of Can in some ways. Which is a very big compliment from me smile

Thank you, Jim!  (I'm surprised and flattered that it comes across as sophisticated!)

Thank you!  Wow--I love the tension in that image, too.

Thank you, Drew!  It's a great pedal, and I couldn't be more happy with it.

Thank you!  That is a big compliment!  Can is definitely a significant part of my background of influences!  (I wasn't thinking consciously of a Can influence, but they're never far away, so it's inevitable.  And maybe that makes it more Can-like as well!)
