both album covers are video synth frames…hinting at the fidelity and style of the audio which they represent
i made the choice because i see similarities between travel of voltage captured in video synthesis [or circuit bent glitch video mixing] and water
fluidity is a central part of the conceptual catalyst for these tracks…structural decisions and improvisational choices were centered on shift of focus toward overlooked elements (eg. from melody to rhythm, or noise) but the definition of concepts, rules, etc were not rigid
tools were selected based on ability to alter perception of time and space (to provide a sense of motion) . several digital delay, reverb, and pitchbend/timestretch instruments were combined in parallel or patched sequentially to achieve this
my relationship with the various tools (and their designers) guided the flow of ideas and my enthusiasm for creating the tracks . hopefully you enjoy some of them too!
(if you would like to download or share with a friend w/o purchasing, dm me…i have plenty of codes to hand out)
i would love to talk about specific tracks but for those curious these were inspired heavily by use of norns softcut apps, softcut as applied in prosody m4l suite, and ableton for looping/ fx / feedback and pitch flipping
past discussion about some of these songs can be found elsewhere on lines
