Thanks for the kind words, gents! I'm definitely aiming to explore this sound further and intend on building a hardware set, but it may have a very different sound. We'll see how that works out.
Second listen — those rhythms are doing my head in. Pretty impressed this was performed life. Care to elaborate on your methods?
In a nutshell, I'm running a bunch of beats programmed in Ableton Live and each track has a delay unit with a specific delay speed. I'm messing with plugins the entire time and trigger things with an APC40. Also, some of the ambient stuff is a Novation Bass Station II put through some effects.
When I started this, I was just doing what came naturally, so the beats are pretty weird just because it's how my body naturally wants to move.
I really love how thorough and disciplined you are in exploring this tuned drum delay aesthetic! I really haven't heard much else like it at this level. Very satisfying listening experience, especially on headphones!
It was written on headphones, so that was how it was intended to be heard, but in my opinion, the best way to hear it is live. If the room is the right shape, it fills with resonance and feels like a massage.
