    cool. Knight Rider vibes 😄 This one is my favourite one of all the tracks you posted. dig it. the last EP i released on my bandcamp was 5 tracks I made in 1998. Found them on a DAT tape in my parents house a couple of years ago!
  3. here's the next version of the last track. got the modular out for this one, all synced up just about! 3 sequencers are running here, the Tanzbar, the Digitakt and the Eloquencer. this was fun! it's a 16 bar sequence now but i still want to put more structure on the sequences and build some more changes into the track. happy with how it's coming along. guitar sound might be a little bit too glitchy.
  4. for me, my favourite kind of drum programming to listen to has those elements all playing off each other, similar to a drummer playing a drumkit. an example of this is"flim", one of the best examples of drum programming imo. it's interesting to me how electronic music seems to swing from more machinelike grooves (kraftwerk/early detroit techno/early afx for example) to more organic, human like grooves, like in drum'n'bass and everything with breaks, and everything in between. i do still love machine grooves too, but i'm really drawn to music where it's a mystery to me how it was made, like with flim.
  5. that's some good piano programming... is the piano all programmed in this track or is some of it played? I like it with the beats, lots of detail... sounds good! the drum programming is good but could be improved i think by making the elements work more like bd, hh and sn patterns on drum kits. does that make sense? sometimes i think its too much a stream of 1/16th notes...
  6. sounds good - i'm liking vector. a techno track in 7? nice work! seeing your dog made me want to listen to your tracks by the way 😄
  7. thanks Drum Up! definitely thinking along these lines too. i'v'e been chaining patterns on the Tanzbar and the Digitakt to create the sequences. this one is only 8 bars long, so definitely a bit short. will add more and make it 16 or 32 in next session. Also want to separate out some of the drum sounds - at the moment all the drum sounds are coming out the main outputs of the tanzbar. switching between sequences is tricky, i want to make the sequence intricate enough by chaining so i can press play, and the whole track plays. takes a lot of preplanning.
  8. started another track tonight. first draft:
  9. holy shit! i can't believe Bob Dylan played that year. I had no idea who else was playing actually, we just wandered around seeing shit band after shit band. i remember thinking several times "this band is playing here because their manager or someone got them a gig here, it's got nothing to do with how much they have practiced and rehearse. what a bunch of shit" very cool, thanks, i'll check out Offramp. one of my guitar teachers once recommended me Song X by Ornette Coleman which has Pat Metheny with his guitar synth. it's just a TAD too frickin weird though! Offramp sounds a lot more listenable :)
  10. oh sorry not literally die - "die on stage" means when a comedian is onstage doing their act but no one is laughing, and then they get heckled worse and worse "boo!" "get off!", it's horrible to watch. really painful. he kept trying to win them back, he wouldn't leave, but it just wasn't funny.
  11. cheers Polytrix 🙂 i was mad into Squarepusher for years. Still rate him very highly but i lost interest a bit after Ultravisitor. Although Shobaleader One is pretty cool, i'd def love to see them live. In 1998 i finished school and went to live with my friend (who was a student) in Glasgow. 3 of us were sharing a one room flat. We heard Squarepusher was playing at Glastonbury but we were horribly broke, so we hitch hiked all the way and went in over the fence as many people used to do back then. It took us 24 hours to get from Glasgow to the festival, and another 6 hours to figure out where Squarepusher was playing. We arrived at the tent to find out we missed the set by half an hour. There was nothing else good at the festival except for some West African drummers playing in a field, so we spent most of our time in the comedy tent. Saw Neil Delamere die on stage, it was horrible. Despite this the whole journey was a great adventure, it was the best and worst weekend of my life up to that point!
  12. Ah nice one The Bro! Cool, love Luke Vibert. just got the Kerrier District rerelease on Hypercolour a couple of weeks ago, its amazing
  13. Thanks Drum Up! Yes, i was thinking about modulating the guitar sound actually... but the looper is recording the audio coming out of the max patch so i couldn't modulate it after the loop... the guitar signal chain is: guitar -> Blackstar HT1 -> audio interface input -> Max4Live patch -> audio interface output -> Boss delay pedal -> Boss reverb pedal -> ditto x 4 looper -> audio interface another input maybe i could try routing the signal from the looper into something else cause modulating it after recording would definitely be cool :)
  14. Here is the next version of this live track. I added a B section and changed the guitar sound to a more sinewavy synth sound by processing it with Max4Live. I think it's more appropriate now! What do you say?
