edit: this one does start really quiet for some reason and I didn't notice, but bare with it.

Had another busy week of uni and work, played an acid set with Rob last night (decided to try something more relaxed tonight), then got up early today to go to a camera market. Spent the afternoon out taking photos, and got some quite nice instax wide shots. Fired up the octatrack and the System-1m tonight to make this IDM-ish track. Excellent way to finish off the weekend.

Yeah I have one of the lomo instant wide cameras and the width of the image/lens is ridiculous. Makes for some pretty nice streetscapes. Nice contrast to the shooting 35mm.

There's plenty of cheap ones floating around wink Will also add that all the synth sounds that aren't the chords (including the weird synth perc) where made with the system 1 and sampled into the octatrack. Lots of sonic possibilities from that synth.

Digging this. Really like the pads and those glitchy sounds. I need to dive into the glitchy side of the octatrack.

There's a lot of complex stuff going on here, I'm not sure how to feel about that yet.

Thanks! The octatrack is very good at glitchy sounds, I need to learn about the non-glitchy side really haha

Embrace it and it will reward you. Fear it and worlds will be hidden from you.
The choice is yours.

I think I'll put it on a pile somewhere and it'll come back to me when the time is right.
