Deconstruction and rebuild of office house dub 3.3.3 aiming for an inspiration somewhere between Boards of Canada, Nurse with Wound, Aphex Twin and proto-punk Nico/Velvet Underground. This is intentionally very experimental, abstract, noisy, tweaky, melodic and glitchy. posted to MeFi Music by loquaciousat 11:25 PM on August 30, 2012
Cruising down the LA river from Griffith Park to East Side while utterly stoned on a sunny afternoon on a low key adventure past huge graffiti, booming lowriders, homeless camps and a surprising amount of nature. posted to MeFi Music by loquaciousat 2:14 AM on September 14, 2010
Remix/remaster of "this is what it sounds like when you shrink a lowrider down and go cruising around for circuits to listen to on in a motherboard and then there's an earthquake" for better bass and mixdown. posted to MeFi Music by loquaciousat 7:52 PM on July 1, 2010

Acid-ambient space dub loops. This is a live jam I did with a friend while visiting him in Seattle.
The rig was comprised of me playing small and very slow beat loops in Traktor at BPMs relationally fractional to a master tempo of 110 BPM, while my friend looped samples in Live, both from prerecorded and live samples from mixboard outputs and sends. There is a Macbook microphone involved in the sampling of the room and as a feedback and reverb source. There is no shared MIDI clock in use - all tempo/pitch control is manual, and listen for long beat-count tempo-drifts of loop components, which are manipulated and intentional.
The majority of this dub takes place as variations of two beats in one "measure", sometimes four but never more.
This cut of the track is the last ten minutes of approximately one hour of play and loop building. It is pre-release version intended for derivitive works, remixes and redubs. (If you wish to remix, sample, splice, loop, fuck, deconstruct or otherwise destroy this track, I would vastly prefer that you please contact me via the email in my profile for the uncompressed and unprocessed file and the full Creative Commons license. Please do not use this low-bitrate file.) posted to MeFi Music by loquaciousat 3:49 AM on December 2, 2006
This is less of a song and more of a sketch, but I found it on my drive and I'm going to post it. Much less developed than my other submission. It's more of a half-assed experiment with drum signatures and reverb with some granulation synth stuff tied into the reverb and echoes. Expect little, but it's pretty hypnotic. posted to MeFi Music by loquaciousat 12:32 AM on July 24, 2006
This is just a random electronic noodling. It was recorded/performed "live" or mostly realtime - all filter sweeps are live, as are on the fly rhythm and melody edits. The style is inspired by Coil's The Snow EP - very early techno/acid. The melody and synth lines were inspired by the HAARP signal as re-encoded for audible spectrum. This sample also plays in the background for much of the song in various permutations, The rhythm signature was inspired by an old crufty-noisy oscillating desk fan. The timebase for the song was an odd and atypical signature to replicate the random rhythmicness of the noisy desk fan. Warning: For some reason a small subset of people have independently complained of having heart palpitations while listening to this song. Something about the rhythm signature, or perhaps the HAARP sample. *shrug* posted to MeFi Music by loquaciousat 3:05 PM on July 11, 2006
