    https://eryngi.bandcamp.com/album/ambivalent2metacontent made this last night, longform melodic drone/ambient/noise ish stuff. live trackpad twiddling, one take, all mistakes left in.. except track 3 is from another time.. i wanted to do something more raw than my usual, just hit record on tape and go, no chance of going back to fix automation etc.
  2. i keep thinking i might get an octatrack. i have 0 gear, just a laptop. octa looks really fun (i hadn't even really watched any vids of em in action until this week). it'd be nice to use something totally different from what i'm used to. haven't quite decided yet...could do without a case of GAS... >_>; dunnno
  3. some wip bits & pieces, messing around trying to summon a mood...
  4. ooh this is lovely. (my first time hearing monolith)
  5. rad! your mixing/production gotten real good.. it always sounded nice but is way more solid now than what i remember of when i first joined here a couple years ago, your stuff had a sort of delicateness to it where it wasn't quite all melted together. to my ears anyway. this is beautifully cohesive.
  6. ill communication def in my top 10 albums of ever list. (check your head rules too). ame here to post ricky's theme.... instead,
  7. been listening to vormaks every night, it rules it has such a great sense of motion to it all it sounds like it feels like a stretchy substance.. like it's incredibly visual and evocative.. of..something i don't know what, but anyway i love it
  8. i love I'm Self Employed, it always makes me happy, makes me think of ducks

    Warp Tapes WAV

    ? love these tracks, really fun stuff
  10. oh nothing i can put a name to except hello spiral style ? i just meant, the whole thing has a unified vibe to it, and it's really moody/atmospheric.. i guess, sort of, how it's old tracks and you said you originally made it with the idea of a summer album...so when i listened it really evoked the feeling of you documenting one weird summer, 20 years ago...
  11. hey this is cool, my ears were pleased all the way through. you definitely summoned a mood, in these tracks... love the cover art too
  12. this is cool.. rad little sound world to sink into, with all those different synth tweaks, the bits where it goes all stereo or rhythm-gatey.. i don't think the drums sound detached from the rest.. they're just maybe a bit quiet in the mix, or lacking some punch compared to them really nice synths
  13. listened to veliform as i was drifting off to sleep this morning...really nice stuff. it's so visual... drawing shapes in my head... love the quite gentle sound of it all... esp veliforms ii & i. probably the kind of thing where if i listened while up and about i wouldn't be able to sink into it but, half asleep at 5am it was perfect
  14. rambly first impression notes i typed while listening a few times on headphones, having just woken up: ender: not enough bass. or the high frequencies too loud compared to bass.. the overall production feels somehow small.. the hihats a bit, and cymbals particularly, sound like they don't quite fit in the mix, they're sitting on top of it, and a little ear piercing.. same with some of the high pads that come in later.. this is my least favourite..it's ok but very sort of..stodgy.. staid.. plodding.. onto: sound which comes in around 4:44 is louder than everythhing else, overpowering.. it's an interesting slightly discordant melodic part but i think it'd be nicer if buried in the mix a bit.. the production of this one, frequencies wise, sounds the most balanced to me.. s'got bigger bass and kick.. it is very dense.. with that bassline it feels like it should be an early 90s hyped up rave vibe but it's a bit too slow. (not necessarily bad) opium: i like this one, it's definitely my fave. the drums feel a bit small in the mix. (not necessarily bad, but might be nice if they were massive).. this track feels more freely flowing than the other two, lots of interesting and nice little interlocking bits going on. - these all sound sort of like they were recorded live, on tape...sort of.. (were they? i'm just guessing but it sounds like you're trying to make em sound that way, with plugins?)..it's a good lo-fi vibe! you do it pretty well, just to my ears the mix doesn't *quite* come together.. hard to put into words.. maybe they could benefit from some mega compressor use. (i'm not usually a fan of exaggerated sidechain comp but it can work well for this kinda stuff maybe) - i listened on alright-but-not-the-best headphones, at quietish levels.. now i turned it way up because i'm standing in a laundry with a washing machine going.. they sound quite a lot better at louder volumes. i bet they sound better loud on speakers.. all up..i dunno..i think compression might glue everything together nicely.. maybe some high freq rolloff on the hats & cymbals in ender.. a bit of levels tweaking on some parts, especially some of the high pads which are overpowering.. i really like opium. would listen to this again and again. onto is alright. ender, i wouldn't listen again... gotta run, might come back later and see if my ears feel differently.. ?
  15. super slick tracks! so many cool little details, very enjoyable to listen to.. i almost sort of wish the production was worse / less polished, haha, cos it'd be nice to hear this kind of microtweakery(+sweet tunes) with a more raw ragged edge to it.. i do like nice clean sounds sometimes tho and you're really good at that ?
  16. really like that one! mental image-> an AI performing a speed sort through slices of some 90s downtempo track, putting all the pieces in places, trying to make sense of it
  17. yep, that's the one! and oh, sorry, didn't mean Gorky Park was the IPCRESS sequel..it's unrelated.. the sequels are Funeral in Berlin & Billion Dollar Brain (60s) and then Bullet To Beijing & Midnight in St Petersburg (90s)
  18. sleep deprived brain oblivion
  19. not sure if it's exactly about spies but Gorky Park maybe.. i've not seen it myself but remember it was one of my mum's fave books (which there is a film of, obvs), on the shelf with all the Le Carres.. also, The Spy Who Came In From the Cold.. there are sequels to ipcress file too.. and, well, this won't scratch your itch at all, but it's good - french show The Bureau.. modern day spy/political thingo. it has pesky relationships stuff etc - though it's not macho, much more realistic style - but also heaps of tradecraft, the difficulty of reintegrating into normal life for a returned spy, and those lovely sitting-around-in-offices-and-walking-down-corridors type bits.. one of my fave shows of recent times..
  20. nah neither of these are flatscreen, though the small dying one has component and yess, looks awesome. it'd been many years since i used em, had forgotten how good they look. but i'm fine with composite and even mono audio, just really want 34cm-ish size :)
  21. i got a tv and it's too big (currently obsessed with CRT and the 34cm one i found in someone's garbage which was great for awhile has developed some nasty electrical buzzing and whistling, so been keeping an eye out for another better one. i specifically want it really small, i like the vibe and that's what i have space for. they seem rare around here.. finally found one nearby, listed as 34cm.. bought it.. went to pick it up and it's like twice the size, lol. whaddya gonna do)
  22. watched The Golden Voyage of Sinbad last night, loved it. i'd heard of Harryhausen and seen clips ofc but never actually watched any of his stuff.. so cool.. i'm gonna get them all
  23. another long vid of testing some new different modes in my video art thing... really gotta get around to making new controls, so i can play it more fluidly..
  24. invalid_url too. tried on phone and laptop, tried making my profile not be "0% complete", tried mentioning a mutual follow as well as a not-following person, beep boop beep
