Reimagined jam w/ Elektron Octatrack MkII, Deckard's Dream, Empress Zoia

Published on Sep 22, 2019 Jay Hosking

"A sort-of-not-really remix of a great song and soundscape by Ian T. Lyckland. Performed live, semi-improvised, and all on hardware.

I loaded Lyckland's song into four slots of the Octatrack, and grabbed snippets for different purposes (piano and essential vocal melody from the original, bass, glitchy ambience, deeper vocals). Then I mangled an additional high piano part into a lead line, then added drums, and finally the Deckard’s Dream through the Empress Zoia (which is the obvious synthy part). I'm pleased with how different the composition is from the original, while also retaining the spirit of Lyckland's emotive track.

The original song is called 'You Are Not A Data Scientist' and is on an album of the same name. Listen and buy it here!:

Elektron Octatrack MkII — Sampler (seven tracks: piano + vox, ambience, bass, and deep vocals from Lyckland's song; higher piano lead; drums from Woody Woodmansey sample), audio effects processor and sampler (for the Deckard's), audio effects processor (for the scenes on the master)
Black Corporation Deckard's Dream + Empress Zoia — Classic synth galore

Written by Ian T. Lyckland and Jay Hosking. Uploaded as is, with only a little compression/limiting on the master."
