For this project I particularly wanted to use a track which had vocals in it. I have a great fondness for the eccojams Oneohotrix Point Never did under an earlier pseudonym - to take fragments of well known music, particularly bits with vocals he found that emphasised a deep desire or longing and drown them in echo and reverb and then looping them for a good few minutes creating a very washed out kind of sound. I quite often find I like these reworks more than the original songs.
So, my entry this week is inspired by that kind of approach.
I used the collaboration between @howthenightcame @calmnesia and Essie Quoi (for some reason I can’t find you on here Essie - I’m sorry, I’ll have a better look when I get a chance and tag you!). Which had all of the elements I wanted to make my own eco-esque-jam. I deliberately didn’t look for or wait for any individual stems, preferring to EQ the various different tracks.
I’ve recently picked up a LaunchControl XL for mixing in Ableton - but really didn’t dedicate any time to really figuring out how to use it besides occasionally turning a panning knob. This project presented a great opportunity to dive a little deeper with it So here I’m mostly just making a few passes and messing with effects and volume while in record mode.
