song a day #26 #27 #28 #29

Some machinedrum beats, some keyboard jamming

some dubstep crap, bassline doesn’t fit the rhythm, but the bass sound is nice:

song-a-day #25 : acidy keyboard jamming

Just replugged my midi keyboard, and it really is fun jamming with it. So not a very eloborate beat or form or sound design today, just some keyboard melodic jamming. Collecting stuff for the album…

song-a-day #22, #23, #24: lololol

I’m quite busy, so no real song-a-days, and actually I think I’m going to start gathering material for an album. I have found back a bit to the way I used to jam when I started, and I always quite liked what came out. Here some stupid shit I’ve been doing over the weekend, gathering stuff. And yeah, hate me for the melodies, and fuck you too!

song a day #021: funky glitcher

So after a 1 week hiatus, slowly starting again. This one is really really shady, bad mix bad everything, just a try to get somewhere with ableton racks, and slicing teh funky drummerz.

song a day #020: laptop battle acid

Heya, yesterday was laptopbattle, I finally made over first round, lost in second round to der Hollaender and his clean production (something that was quite obvious from the start :), but I had really fun anyway. Here is the reworked version of #019 mixed with #017 that I used for the first round, and a small rendering of the second set (of 6 minutes), but I f*cked this one up playing live by having an unwanted loop (wtf ableton?), and not really being able to be coherent in my own mind at the time :]

song a day #019: glitchy acid

And another glitch acid, this time quixit (using only provided samples in 1h30). I think I’m getting this down. All the glitch was done in a “quick” way using my beloved xfx ensemble in reaktor and livecut, then some more slicing.

song a day #018: some more glitchy acid

Working again on glitchy samples. I did the mistake to record all glitch smapz with reverb on it, making it sound all a bit washy. Will take better care next time.

song a day #017: glitchy acid

Spent a bit more time than yesterday on the track, still very basic and badly mixed. I’m getting slowly there, and I started doing one thing I never did: archiving presets, effect chains, and lots of samples. I wonder why I didn’t do that before.

song a day #016: yo catch up

Missed two days, OMG OMG OMG OMG Here is the “finished” version of number 15 though:

And here is how I am exploring the process a bit further, this time by creating all my samples, trying to organize them using ableton’s library, and stuff… Much to discover there. Also, I well get monitors pretty soon, and a new soundcard, so resampling all my stuff and working on sound design should be better soon 🙂

After spending a frustrating day in logic, some exquisite sample chopchop in live.
