Dream Tropic (after Julius)

By Tristan Louth-Robins on January 18, 2018 11:53 am

Recorded at Studio Maurilia during the first proper S.A. heatwave - 18-19 Jan 2018. 43 Celcius top on the 19th, still about 38 degrees when I finished this in the upstairs studio.

Materials: small terracotta chicken pipe (with water), bike bells, mustard seeds, loudspeakers, balcony field recording, samples from weeks 1 and 2.

Process: several audio stems created by running samples into an EHX memory man using chance operations. The samples are layered, filtered, chopped and pitched up/down on the EHX. The output loop is then further processed (lightly) with an Earthquaker Transmisser (i.e. a very sexy looking modulation reverb). The stems are then imported into Ableton live where they are mixed with the field recording and sampled.

A menagerie of texture and sound.  Good to see it's mostly hardware too.

Great job on this. The atmosphere is wild yet calming. Love the different sounds and how you worked the year for it

Interesting and charming till the very end. The guitar ending is cool, very coherent.
Also, a solid production process you have here. Fav.

If you could take a walk and pick up sounds like objects along the way, I imagine this is what my pockets would sound like.
