Disquiet Junto Project 0368: Engage Duo


I’m not at home now, but I think this is the one:

Plug your stomp box into your laptop via a USB port and have fun!! It’s easy to stack several delays and / or reverb for some huge cavernous sounds…



Hi, not really inspired today for this lovely challenge, and I decided to avoid any track already used, I guess I think that it’ll be better overall (was this discussed Marc?) to have distinct collaborations instead of several tracks being used by different guys? I’m not sure if prefer that really)
From the tracks I liked and downloaded after listening to the whole playlist a couple of days ago, many were used so I went with @ikjoyce 's track, not the first time I collaborate with him in this junto gatherings.
This music took me on a different direction from I was expecting (using a molodic accordina as in the previous junto) .
His track was mostly a groove with electro sequences popping throughout, and then it goes to some electro-bollywwood mantra thing, very interesting already, so I just played my electric bass making it more like a rhythm section for a third juntonian to play on top next week.
But I played a melody on the bass at the end, like a montuno obstinatto, Not really proud of this one, but I guess it sounds unfinished and that’s good for the next step.

Used my usual random methods to do things ( John Cage )
1. Used Random.org to pick a track to work with
2. #21 came up - Trioh - Bass (disquiet0367) by MtnViewMark-Bits is licensed under a Creative Commons License
3. Imported the bass track into Reaper
4. Put Reaktor 6 on a separate track in Reaper
5. Used random to pick out the drum sounds from within Reaktor
6. Hi hat #57
7. Kick drum #7
8. Open hi-hat #6
9. Snare drum #11
10. Sub percussion sound #1
11. FX #9
12. Panning bass hard left and drums/percussion hard right
13. Mixed and mastered

I chose the beautifully simple Trio Initiate by @howthenightcame
To this I added three layers of Bass Station 2 arps at varying speeds and levels of reverb/delay/eq. I also added a flanger to two of the layers, and some EQ to all to make them sit together. Finally, I panned the two mid-range arps more to the right, leaving the original track mainly in the left.

Wow - love that bassline! Really brings the electronic rhythm to life.



I couldn’t resist using @ryanscottmattingly’s track as a chance to engage in a bit of hot, lo-fi, steel-on-steel action.
First I worked out the melodic palette that Ryan was working with. Using these notes and phrases as a starting point I created several simple, asynchronous loops using my lap steel. I recorded these onto my dictaphone and then transferred the dictaphone recording onto my iPad. Here I pitched it down by an octave, cut it into various bits, and performed a take on the Fieldscaper app with some reverb. Then I popped it on top of Ryan’s track and panned my track to the right.



Nice very much like a soundtrack or store music



Nice drum programming/finger drumming

I’m overseas at the moment, needed a minimal effort approach. I used OHELEM’s processed sitar track, reversed it and reprocessed it, with the reprocessed track panned right.



Added some bass to Tunnelwater’s beautiful lap steel!



It worked well!!

What software did you use?

SonicCharge Permut8, automating parameters for variations.



Adding the 2nd of (hopefully) three layers to:
Ethanhein – Trombocoder-disquiet0367

Last night I thought I’d play some flute over this. Yet tonight, after an amazing day at a vocal/body percussion workshop I used my voice instead. A quick listen to find where my voice sat with the track then this came out fist take.
