breather #5 (020820_110bpm)

This is one of those weeks that I don't have a huge amount of time. Next week will be even less. Because I'm performing Sat 2/15 in Chicago alongside a roster of some wonderful visual artist collaborations (fbzzrk event link) . I'll be collaborating with my friend suture, and we're doing a pretty uniquely different A/V set, we'll have footage from Unreal played and explored live, with various triggers set, and I'll be sequencing all the audio as well as some video too. I'm excited, but we have a lot more to develop. All the while, my work calendar is booked solid, a project I'm semi-roped into is driving me a little mad, and I always make Valentine's gifts for my student workers, which I hafta figure out when to buy and get that all put together (probably Wed or Thu evening).  Oof, so much.


Anyway, this track is a pretty simple ambient/dark ambient kinda atmosphere. The most prevalent aspects are a TAL U-NO-LUX bass note held the entire time, a slowed down beat, some Kontakt instruments, and most notably the free Reaktor ensemble VHS Audio Degradation Suite, which I highly recommend for perfect tape-sounding wow-flutter effects. Also the track title continues a similar group of tunes from 2016 (which I actually did release "Breather Tracks" as a limited edition VHS tape... maybe I'll do it again for this years set of ambient tunes).

I love the distorted tape crackle...and the opening to other dimensions that are happening with this one...This could be a great intro track to a live show

Yo that higher texture + the bass are really tasty. Gonna download the VHS suite now.
