Mike Quigley - Strange Gain (ambient kinda, studio composition, max, guitars)

Hey folks. I have an album of ~mostly~ ambient music that’s out today via Oxtail Recordings. It’s a mix of improv recordings using guitars, keyboards, voice, and a camera-based synthesizer I made in Max/MSP a couple years back that changes its output based on motion and color data. So picture me dancing in front of a laptop camera and running that through some effects pedals and loops, etc. Then I spent a while carving up all the sound sources into 4 distinct tracks and layering in some additional guitar (and vocals on the last track) that were informed by the newly edited structures, etc.

I don’t post to lines much but I read it a lot and have learned about so many cool people and projects. Grateful to have it as a resource. Thanks y’all!
