"It's the summer holidays in the Antipodes and I was feeling guilty about my gear that hadn't been recorded in a while, so I added some effects and hit play on a MIDI composition from earlier in the year."

Continuity [disquiet0551]

video upload by bassling

via bassling:

"The Roland Boutiques are playing the music and I've experimented with generating lyrics, using a live version of the cut-up technique.

Tristan Tzara, sometime Surrealist then Dadaist, popularised the idea of cutting up newspapers to generate artworks.

William S. Burroughs thought the process could be a magical ritual, revealing hidden meaning.

His idea has been used extensively in popular music, including Bowie, Radiohead and Beck.

For me it's a kind of remixing, as I've taken five-syllable lines and randomly selected their arrangement.

To make the results seem more at home in the mix, I've run my voice through a vocoder."

How Rain Sounds [naviarhaiku147]

Published on Oct 30, 2016 bassling

This one in via Jason, aka bassling, who had the following to say:

"You can see I've played the drums, then recorded the MIDI through a Roland TR-707.

These drums are accompanied by an Atomosynth Mochika XL and King Capitol Punishment Utopia Synth, the latter has a little Valhalla Shimmer reverb added in the box and I've used Ozone 7 to master.

See for track discussion."
