Used an old track called Ex Nihilo. Doubled the speed then slowed it down a tad with PaulStretch plugin, and ran the result through delays and reverbs etc. Used Logic’s convert to midi function to generate odd second part played by a sine wave.
The speed of time increases naturally as we get older. In Suss Müsik’s estimation, the only way to stop time is to create a parallel facsimile that suspends belief in our sense of chronology. Good luck with that.
In 1880, Eadweard Muybridge underwent a similar conquest: he wanted to start and stop the action of time in motion. Using a camera equipped with two boards and a spring (leaving a 1/8 inch opening in the lens), Muybridge was able to capture the image of a man riding a horse at one five-hundredth of a second. Putting these images together in a sequence allowed for a visual precision never achieved by the human eye.
Using a device Muybridge named the zoogyroscope (basically a metal drum mounted on a spindle with slits on the side), viewers could watch an entire series of Muybridge’s frames at any speed they wished. Thus was born the technology that eventually became the motion picture. If you’ve ever been stuck watching a truly horrid movie, blame Muybridge.
For this odd piece, Suss Müsik started with the output from Disquiet Junto 0299. Granted, it doesn’t take much effort to speed up a tempo of only 10 BPM, but there you have it. The instrumentation is largely the same with some added electronic percussion, soft electric piano chords, and gritty synth guitar to form a bit of structure.
The piece is titled Muybridge. The image is one of his series of a woman playing tennis.
I took an old track I submitted for the Naviar Haiku project “After” Noimspartacus – After-naviarhaiku111-after-the-dancing.
I doubled the speed and double tracked it, running one of them through a filter fx chain. I then sped the track X8, reversed it and bookended the track with this. Added a drum track and a reaktor ensemble playing a simple sequence. It’s very busy in the higher frequencies because of the accelerated chimes and the laidback, bucolic vibe of the original becomes a bit more Haribo and Redbull with the tempo ramping.
My song “a donut wash derby” at 4x tempo with added synth figures from Monark in Reaktor. I deleted my first attempt with another song because I decided it stretched the prompt too much, and not in a clever way, and my submission last week kinda did that too, and etc
The original is based on a sample from a robocall voicemail that’s been abstracted by scaling the complex phase of each Fourier component, initially by 7 then 5 then 3 then 2, gradually revealing its speechy nature. In this version most of that process is obliterated by the synth. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I had this drone choir thing at 36bpm, I sped it up to 64bpm and went to sleep by a stream.
This ended up being a more complicated setup than usual for me. One melodic part comes from Bran Bos’ Particles, which feeds Cality (a sort of smart midi randomizer), which then goes to the midi clone and filter au to send it on to a hardware synth. The outputs of the hardware synth go to one audio input of the iconnectaudio4+. One of the outputs of the audio4+ goes through a meris polymoon and back into another audio4+ input. That is sent back to AUM on the ipad to mix.
The other melodic part is a sequence in Ripplemaker. The choir comes from Sunrizer modulated by FAC Envolver. Ripplemakers parameters are also being changed by Envolver .The FAC Chorus and Audiodamage Adverb also get a lot us use.
Quite a happy ditty based on the very sad Glimpse of Hope (disquiet0271)
This is my first junto. A friend and I used to do a lot of improvising with me on modular/octatrack and him singing through FX pedals. Most of it was kind of intense and beat-based, but I found this ambient thing that worked for the prompt. I sped it up twice as fast, did some heavy subtractive eq-ing (because all I had to work with was a stereo mixdown with a lot going on in the midrange), and layered a single electric bass note through an infinite sustain pedal, plus a little acoustic guitar (processed by MLR) layer near the end.
I’m not an expert, I have the same bass I started with, a 1910 build, very warm sounding, noble old wood, but not loads of volume. Very easy to record tho, put a mic in front of it and that’s it, sounds lovely. Live is a bastard though.
10 years ago I was playing live a lot and went for a replacement, my luthier said I could get 5000€ so I started trying basses on the 6000-8000 range and no way, mine was much better sounding.
So, if you’re going to just have it home and record go for an old piece of wood, if you like what you get when testing it, it’ll be ok.
For live gigs is different, unless you have much more money, you better get a Chinese loud bass with a great pickup.
But again, I’m far from an expert, i’m the kind of guy who likes to stick to just one instrument…
So I sped up an ambient track to make it into a slow jam…
Hi all, new here!
I used an original track of mine that I created in Auxy.
I sped it up to 1.55 in Anytune (I’d normally use Audacity, but was away from my computer).
It was so fast and kind of a mess, so I didn’t want to add any instruments to it. I ended up sampling chunks of it in Koala Sampler and using some of the built in effects like “ring” and “stutter”.
Not sure it qualifies as a finished piece of music, but it was a great experience for me to get out of my usual workflow and accomplish a very different sound.
This is the original:
• Key: C major BPM: 90 Time signature: 4/4 DAW: Reaper
• Instruments: Piano, synths, bass
• Plug-ins: Absynth 5, analog lab 4, triple cheese, bazille, waves electric grand
Sped up an old project by a rate of .33
Added Absynth 5 playing a lead / chord patch
Nice composition. Sounds great at this tempo.
Super cinematic! I appreciate the epic grandeur.
Movie soundtrack Cool
A mash up of old stuff… old sped way up… new slowed down a bit.
I really enjoyed this one. Took a track of mine from a previous alias, and had a blast improvising synths over/under it. I’m not used to working with something this uptempo and I feel like it got my brain working in a new way.
haha this is weird as hell man. love it
Field recording of a panel in a bus rattling in sympathy with the engine while stopped at a bus station. This was sped up by around 4 times then split into two sends; one with an Arturia SEM filter, with modulated cutoff, to bring a percussion element, and the other through a Sinevibes Robotizer.
It sounds beautiful. This is definitely on my list of desires. . . I would love to have the technique and color on display here.
