Another case of the blues

Post by DickMarker » Sat Feb 29, 2020 3:34 pm

Apologies for spamming the BB forum with more self-promotion but thought some folks might like this.

Another new cassette/digital release - solo work this time - on Hominid Sounds. This one is 100% Bugbrand and Scrotum Labs, apart from the field recordings/samples (although most of those were played through Robert's Radio Music module); most pieces built on a series of improvised sessions on my two frames, and then embellished with overdubs and processing.
Hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed making!

I wish all spams were like this one!

I dived (dove?) into your release with such a GREAT pleasure. Really speaks to me.
So cool that such music can be made with a modular like the BugBrand system :sb:
I'm of course also more than happy that some of my modules participate to make this awesome atmosphere.

Goose bumps on track 5 :hail:

Vraiment excellent. J'adore!

Excellent work Mark! Really impressive sounds - is there a lot of post production going on? Reverb/compression etc, seems very professional for want of a better word! Unlike any Bugbrand music I've heard too

Thanks guys.

Robert - the Radio Music module is proving invaluable, especially with the pitch function, alongside Tom's devices - thanks for adapting it to Frac/BB!

Ritchie - some of the tracks involved a fair bit of post production but then I usually end up stripping a lot back before the final mix; I use TAL Reverb 4, which is a great sounding plate, for the reverb. I try to avoid compression (unless really needed) until the "mastering" phase, using a few Klanghelm plugins and the amazing Sonic Anomaly Unlimited.

Cheers Tom - I'm not a big subscriber to the idea of gear being an important factor in creativity but your instruments have certainly had a big impact on my output!

I did a no hesitation, knobs to 11 isolation inspired noise recording session and put it up on my Bandcamp - not pretty but then neither are these times! Once again, all Bugbrand and SL. Hope you're all faring well.
