Disquiet Junto Project 0431: Solitary Ensembles x 3

This week I’ve joined @krakenkraft and @DeDe for the ‘Virtual Berlin School Trio,’ adding a 707 drum part.

\My drum machine is augmented with a triggered Jomox bass drum, distortion on the snare and stereo chorus on the high hat.

I’d considered joining this track last week, but the flac file was an extra step in the recording process which discouraged me.

You can download the audio here.

Edit: you can download just the 707 here.

took the beautiful collaboration by @forcedamage and @wasabicube https://soundcloud.com/wasabicube/force-damage-own-medicine-disquiet0430
and added a bit of fretless guitar, with some compression and delay. I tried to make minimal additions–the original is so sublime.

I selected #65 with my random number patch in Max. Here is a lovely trio of @Paul guitar musings, @Douglas_Scott overdub and my recordings from the waves standing in the water at Santa Cruz, California.

I had to do a little stereoization of the guitar tracks, and mix all together. Please enjoy.

@bassling lovely approach, you somehow ended up in a land of exotica, à la Martin Denny or Arthur Lyman :slight_smile:

Hello, #metoo! I listened to the whole thing during the past 7 days, amazing , massive work.
Bravo everybody, these collab-juntos should be more the rule rather than the exception, I love it and that’s what “junto” is all about in my mother tongue…
I went a bit “drone” this week, trying to stick myself into two very mysterious drone-like tracks that really puzzled me:


The first one was https://soundcloud.com/marcolucchi/der-steppenwolf that’s Marco’s collaboration with michel banabila adding to his track Michel-banabila – Fase-1-disquiet-0429-solitary-ensembles

This one really liked and puzzled me, there’s a mysterious modulating sound and performance on the mellotron that reminds me of Gregorian chant, even if the sound is no “voices” but more like a string-harmonium sound. But it evokes a bunch of ancient Greek monks on acid , recorded on an old Geloso (what won’t I give to lay my hands again on my mum’s old Geloso that served as my first experimental recording device when I was 6 ?) Nevermind…
Thanks to Marco and Michel for their inspiring track.


Second:
For this one I worked over this track by @encym
Encym – Oozes-two-drones-looking-for-companydisquiet0430
That is a collaboration with this original solo by @joe-mcmahon
Joe-mcmahon – Where-i-was-drone-only-disquiet-0429

I performed synthesizers (MicroKorg, Emu Vintage Keys) to add some more "regular "musical content (melodies, harmonies) to a drone track that sounded very musical to me, it was difficult to catch in terms of my reactions to it, it sounded abstract and musical, cold-experimental and warm and sensitive, very inspiring one.
I know I made it more “cliché” standard and less mysterious to my ears, but that’s what I had to add anyway, it’s ok. It was nice to jam along with them on this one.


Third, a more standard track, with bass, guitar, drums and an overdub of accordina.
I performed over @howthenightcame 's track https://soundcloud.com/howthenightcame/c-disquiet0430-ryan-scott-mattingly
That was his duo over @ryanscottmattingly 's https://soundcloud.com/ryanscottmattingly/rabbit-food-disquiet0429
I played standard rhythm section (upright bass) over the basic guitar+drum track, then added an Accordina improvisation over it.
It’s nice, melancholic, it was a pleasure for me, cheers

Wow, another Berlin School Graduate, you added the right amount of salt this Sauerkraut needed. Using the 707 should be placed on the top 5 of this year’s @bassling 's best ideas. I’ll sugest number 4. Or 2.
Thanks for this.

I took the track Threat by @Krakenkraft, who provided the second layer (disquiet0430) and @MattDavisMusic, who provided the first track (disquiet0429) and added a pulsating, noisy synth layer as the third one.

Thanks! I love your addition to the track and I admire, how delicately respond to the source track with your bass. Great result, I think.

I’m so glad I was able to get set up and jam. I hope everyone is having a glittery day!

I chose to combine 2 tracks. Popgoblin – Disquiet0430-steps-forward-vs-chalkwalk
Chalkwalk-junto – Solitary-ensembles-disquiet0429

Morgulbee – Sweepers-disquiet0430
Fake-genius – Disquiet-0429-sweep

I looped these together with 2 looper chains in Live while using a Roland DJ 808, Akai Rhythm Wolf, Push 2, MIDI fighter. I played a section of the sweep sample on the push using a sampler. These were then looped with the drum programming at varied rates. I then reversed a 4 bar loop with in the looper chain.

Guitar improv into clouds, delay, reverb to try and rockify Murmurer/Untilled sound’s submission from last week Junto. It didnt turn out quite as well as I’d hoped but there are some promising parts. Enjoy!

This is actually my first take, which I instilled some classic modular bleep bloop type sounds using Marbles and plaits. the other two tracks are flipped left and right, not sure why. You can hear me trying out a number of different sounds.

Edit: I don’t know that anybody really cares, but its better to listen to whacky music than endlessly read the news on your phone.
