One of those secret projectsZzzzzzz

Post by sbuge » Wed Jan 29, 2020 10:13 am

I begun making this kraut(ish) LP in 2015 - I did not plan to spend five years with this, but it just happened.

I did lots of other (more experimental) projects on the same time way faster and spend weekends and holidays on making and tweaking this. As years went my modular got bigger and bigger and I got new ideas and I transformed the ideas into these songs and new&new&new versions were made. Almost every song of the record has been "tested" or played in front of live audience and I think that is also a big part of "composing" method of this album. When the song started to work I recorded it with my Teac 3340s ---> it kept things simple - and it gave me reason to keep these songs simple <--- My live playing skills are too low for complex soloing Et cetera ;)

After I finished the album I travelled with the tapes (and with 3340s) to the professional recording studio and mixed this album with old Neve console, Bricasti reverb and UnFairchild 670M II compressor + Studer a80 recorder. And it was worth of every penny ... It was first time for me to spend time with pro mastering equipment, but not the last. Songs got more the 3D quality (or something).

Now the last step is to do the final eq settings and cut the vinyl and then get the records pressed.

But I just wanted to share with you this excerpt beforehand, because I am so excited (and this has been my secred project 8-) ).

This song is mostly 5U stuff. Sequencers: 2xQ960,Q119, Ac:RlS, Touch sequencer,Arabesque generator,WCRS, String sounds come from 6550-99, Deep bass sounds comes from Dotcom osc to Stg wave folder, sound effects from Zeroscillator+J3rk258+ACneuron to Blacet time machine, Drum sounds are made with my 5U and then sampled and prosessed through Metasonix D1000 and I think that everything is patched through Freestate phasers and flangers.
+ there are some primitive (sampled) guitar playing :tu: My sampler is ER-301 (it is eurorack and it is freaking awesome).

:yay:
Nice sounds which remind me a bit of “Green Desert” by Tangerine Dream. Very “eastern” sounding.

Thanks for sharing!

This is fantastic! Reminiscent of some of the kosmische material - echoes of some of the best energies of Popul Vuh. Looking forward to hearing about this when it's released.

Thank you for the kind words kindredlost, hsosdrum , dslocum, sduck, Flareless & teleport :hug:
Yep - I will post here when the record is in my hands.

I think the "eastern" vibe come from Touch Sequencers LCD keyboard. It is so fun to do rapid note shifts with the stylus.
I have never listened the Green Desert (lots of other TD records of course), but have to check it out some day - Internet says that is has been recorded in 73 - but published in 86? So pre-Phaedra material.

You are absolutely right with your Segwencer desctiption. I am using it (maybe even) in every patch, but at least in once in every song :party:

The excerpt you provided is AWESOME!!! Please keep us informed about release.....will you be using a service like bandcamp to distribute? While a vinyl copy would be super cool, I am sadly not much into vinyl now, closet full of records with no means to play....RIP SL1200!
