This is a weird, somewhat awkward one.  The way this week went, I had a few things I put together late in the evenings, but threw them out.  Late Saturday night, I put down a bunch of tracks of Moog guitar through Reuss RF-01 fuzz, Vox Wah, and Mike Carey tremolo pedal, followed by some Epiphone Moderne through the Reuss and Vox.  I tracked these against some drum machine lines I rejected, and replaced them with a more intuitive line that...now feels odd--certainly it doesn't fit well into 4/4 or 6/4, and has a weird hiccup or two in it, but...there we are.  I put in percussion as well with a heavy send to Echo, and finished up with Epiphone bass (compression, eq-8, and cabinet plugin).

Sends: a room convolution reverb, and two channels of Ableton Echo, set differently.  Lots of auto-pan, and full-chain master.  Title comes from Martin Heinrich Klaproth's early name for what was later identified as Zirconium, but I dropped the trailing "e" because it was funny.

Insistent and faintly annoying, rather like Zirconium itself. ::)

Ha! Thanks, Jim!  There are those parts of the drums that drag juuuuust a bit too much.  Kind of bugging me, actually.

I'm really liking the bit halfway in when the bass and drums join the party.
