  1. that was really cool =) especially when you got talky, nice hearing you explain what you're doing a bit etc (i don't know anything bout hardware either).. would watch more! (hah just got up to the bit where someone suggests mic through the rig.. hell yeah!)
  2. i started up Shiren the Wanderer for the first time in months.. it rules! probably my favourite roguelike..satisfies my Desires for both infinite dungeons and bright cheery colours! i played this Vita version to death when it came out and beat the main story mode or whatever, now i'm right back into it and there are all these other weird dungeon variant modes i'd forgotten about, yesss... it's making me really want to make a proper mystery dungeon style game argh..
  3. enjoying these! strangely super relaxing with their somewhat homogenous sound palette, audio environment constantly shifting around you.. no one thing grabs your attention *too much*, or not for too long before it melts back into the environment. (this is a compliment).. =) the quieter moments on 123.4 HITZ FM are just beautiful
  4. just finished this nineteen minute, one track EP... THE KWEM https://eryngi.bandcamp.com/album/the-kwem older releases: mossy EP - https://eryngi.bandcamp.com/album/mossy-ep animism - https://eryngi.bandcamp.com/album/animism green ant sound - https://zzaapp.bandcamp.com/album/green-ant-sound =)
  5. i always wondered about rdj album but somehow never considered it could be tracker until that vordhosbn playerpro vid! then was like, OH, of course. haha.. i even started out using trackers and made heavy use of sample offsets into synth sweeps/drumloops/etc, tho with way lower quality samples and no skillz. the bubbling acid stuff in rdj does sound like that. tracker + further editing in a wave editor makes sense to me. doing that kind of stuff in a tracker is waaaaay easier than on hardware or midi sequencers etc, that i've used at least. so good!
  6. Cheers dude. Not sure what the difference is between computer music and live/hardware? hah, who knows what i meant. oh..yeah i remember now.. was specifically talking about the production - my awkward way of saying you did a nice job with reverbs and such. i meant "live" as in recorded with microphones in a room, "computer music" as in coming straight out of a plugin. your nice spacious mixing sounds halfway between those extremes. or something!
  7. these are sweet! i really like the simple purity of em, and the production sits somewhere really nice halfway between sounding like COMPUTER MUSIC and live/hardware, to me.. fave so far: pannier market, bideford. awesome drum sound!!
  8. no music shops sold this kind of stuff where i lived but i somehow became obsessed with aphex years before ever hearing him.. from the BBS ANSI art scene.. there was an artist called aphin twix, which i thought sounded cool.. then saw mention of some band called aphex twin in a zine i downloaded. "oh, like that ANSI guy! i guess it's the same person.." then one day in highschool art class a girl brought this rad tape along. i asked what it was - aphex twin! whoahh.. she was drumming along to alberto balsalm with paint brushes on jars.. i borrowed and taped that off her. and also hard normal daddy.. then i ordered every afx cd i could from the local music shop. they used to take a couple months to come in. the one i really lusted after was saw2 but the shop did not have that listed, could not order. a couple years later on holiday in melbourne, met up with my best friend from irc, in person for the first time. SHE HAD SAW2. i taped that, omg, so happy. tripped with her and her bro on a beach for NYE.. next morning back at their place just before leaving, she's like, hey listen to this... puts on LP5. acroyear2 melted my mind, i could hardly understand what i was hearing, like a new language... a few months later i had my own copy =)
  9. thanks much! thought i'd just quickly mix these old tracks but instead fell down a starting-new-tracks-out-of-the-ruins-of-the-old-ones rabbit hole. obviously. https://soundcloud.com/eryngi777/cant-help-u-b
  10. second the mix/panning/etc comments, but i love the vibe! i love running down hallways
  11. thanks heaps Stickfigger! i do love a bit of gamelan =) found some old sessions i thought i'd lost.. tracks i like, but don't really want to keep working on, so might put up a lil free ep on bandcamp. just trying to make them sound a bit better. first one: http://nyarlu.net/moz2b.mp3 EDIT, slightly squashed version, louder, main synth thing more in ur face: http://nyarlu.net/moz2c.mp3 simple little track.. i'm not that happy with some of the drums n stuff, but yeahhh probably won't mess with it any more, except for the mixing - any feedback on that would be much appreciated! (might end up recording it to cassette and back, lol. i found another tape deck in an op shop the other day and it sounds pretty nice) EDIT2 another version with slightly less boring drums, might be worse, i can't tell any more :) http://nyarlu.net/moz3b.mp3 .. it's way overworked now. might strip it down and start again..
  12. haha i like it! very pleasing when there's low framerate/loose rhythm sync backgrounds and exact sync foreground stuff.
  13. yeah i'm into that kind of thing, just the interactions between a couple rhythms (or two of the same rhythm with different sounds interacting) send me right into a trance, and if the rhythms are slightly aekward / unpredictable (but still repetitive) it only seems to enhance this. this track does have that cool trance effect on me but i'd love to hear it if the actual sounds shifted and morphed over time.. like, an evolving timbre keeps you interested, in addition to entranced. to word it less wishy-washy like: i'm into the direction but wish for More Lushness =)
  14. God Bless AMT. my fave Pink Lady Lemonades that i've heard are the two AMT & The Cosmic Inferno versions, with Afrirampo on vocals In O to Infinity.. love the weird gluey bass and backwards drum rush in track 1 tangentially related, speaking of Afrirampo.. track 4 from Suuto Breakor is magic
  15. reminds me of Oval somehow. pure poetry.
  16. Percival Pembroke is great, esp that album Concurrent 386 and A Course in the Theory of Drones. Arpeggiagorworld++ too,though that has a sort of different sound
  17. buycnnurightnow. OK i love how much of a soft touch lots of this stuff has.. so gentle and delicate but also super solid, playful and hyperactive af
  18. what's all this then been loving dunal chronicles for awhile, must've found out about it from here before i joined. but only just listening to EODS now, this rules! i'm IN
  19. this is cool. i'm not a connoisseur of the genre or anything tho i have loved some psy(?)trance in my life.. the flute in the first bit sounds too loud and overdriven, on my headphones at least. it's overpowering when i'd like it more to be all floaty feeling. but then in the next section about halfway through it's great the harsh frog synth in the mysterious-cities-of-gold-chords section in second half, is a bit too loud too imo, but yeah it might be totally different on speakers.. love the time change bit at the end. i keep wanting this track to bring in some big melody part in a breakdown, like the "nahhhh nahhh nuh nuh naaaaahh naaaah" bit in Dracul by Infected Mushroom or something :) it does come together in that good psytrance feeling of lots of parts of a machine clicking and churning together, especially in that little section in the middle, that's my fave bit
  20. yeah! i used to play in a gamelan anklung, the physical effect of that sound was amazing. i got no specific details but it felt very very good and weird just to be in the room with it, and much moreso to take part. https://youtu.be/MUBbS5ygt2Y the way you learn songs bit by bit is cool - nothing written down, you start by playing one bar over and over.. add a couple more.. add a few more.. repeat that whole section for a couple sessions.. start on the next section. etc. after a few sessions you intimately know every little detail of a 30 min piece of music. also i love this stuff.. http://www.viewzone.com/archeosound.html "Ancient Temple Architects May Have Been Chasing a Buzz From Sound Waves"
  21. thanks avnerheart! been tweaking that jurate track a bit more.. i think the bass drum might be toooo low, gotta wrangle them frequencies. i got in the habit of always using this fake tape megasquasher plugin on master tracks. like, right from the start of writing a track, haha. i really like the sound of this particular plugin (i forget what it's called) and it makes things very loud but i've been way overusing it i reckon. been happier with results since i gave it up and started trying to mix things a bit more properly.. i'll bring it out again once tracks are actually finished and already sounding alright, maybe
  22. love the jaunty vibe of this! the chip-ish sounds work nicely with the guitar-ish. i like when there's left and right guitar (or whatever it is) just playing the same note with little rhythm variances. only thing i'm not keen on is the fairly harsh high frequency/short attack clickiness of the drums, hurts my ears a bit.. cool catchy tune tho
  23. first track i've made since last time.. https://soundcloud.com/eryngi777/uland3 trying to break some habits, doing stuff in a different way than usual, forcing myself not to use my usual plugin crutches.. not worrying about mix/master/what all the notes are etc... this is kinda cheesy and annoying, i like it
