some nerdy process info:
Inspiration for the soundtrack came from Pink Siifu’s awesome record, NEGRO; David Jackman who I discovered through the lines drone thread & some tricks were taken from the lines creative convolution thread for track 3.
Most of the trumpet was feed into a feedback loop I made between a boss mixer and a Moog grandmother. The bass was a Moog sub25 and the noise/controlled feedback is a Moog sub37 using the looping envelopes as a oscillator. Everything was sequenced in Reaper that the drums and trumpet tracked live to.
