Scott Campbell - Quiet Rituals (Seil Records)

It’s been a minute, but I have some new music to share. "Quiet Rituals’ is out today on Seil Records, available on cassette and as name-your-price digital (for first 2 weeks).

Quiet Rituals draws inspiration from the seemingly mundane tasks and habits in our daily lives which serve to keep us grounded in uncertain times.

Thanks! Each track is comprised of 6-8 asynchronous tape loops created with a frippertronics style setup, so they degrade over time. Loops were recorded one at a time for 5-10 minutes into a DAW. From there I would do live mixes of the loops combined with field recordings to create the final track/mix.

I’m planning to record a couple performance vids using a small eurorack palette centered around an ER-301 loaded with stems from the record. I’ll post them in this thread when they’re done.

Thanks! Very inspiring. I haven’t tried setting up a frippertronics looper yet. I have the tapemachines for it so i’m going to give it a go.
