3753 cruithne

Continuing with my beat-oriented theme of late. Autechre-like, but they're still 1,000 times better than I am. This one's noisy and glitchy, just the way I like it.

chthonian planets 4

A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...

accreting protostar

High dynamic range and distortion wrapped in a a heartbeat-like 73 BPM.

Something a spacecraft might hear on the edge of the solar system

galactic halo

A mellow, trippy piece with a discordant edge. File under "dark ambient for stoners."

exoplanet

2 minutes and 30 seconds of crap

event horizon

A dark, drone/noise piece that develops slowly

death is the road to awe

A relaxing drone; noise waveforms are dominant again

industrial society and its future

Extra dark and ominous; uses mostly noise waveforms instead of sine waves

some of them are hard to look at, since they are disfigured

Exceptionally resonant bass channel with two layers of percussion on top

civilization crumbles whenever we need it most

Dark ambient work with an industrial undertone and extreme use of reverb

bide your time and everything becomes clear

Dark and moody. Lots of reverb. This is my fourth generative piece.

what goes on in those dark rooms

Six layers of sound, created completely from scratch in the Operator soft synth, sent through a filter delayed return track

i've seen what they do

Second generative piece; bassy pad and six layers of percussion

the factory produces mortar shells

My first foray into generative music; bass drone with four layers of percussion on top

many of you won't survive the night

Another dark ambient piece; more fun than a farmhouse under seige

a few hundred thousand dead cannibals

A quiet, haunting track with drones, chimes, and muted bass beats

we knew he was out there

muffled, glitchy beats in five layers

second journey into space

Background hum that becomes a melodious, multi-layered trip

while making an attempt to escape the city

Howling wind ambience, strongly beat-oriented, and spikes of high and low notes

isolated research station orbiting a bizarre planet

Endcaps of warbling drone punctuated by bass stabs, and a middle section of high rhythmic complexity

drifting out to sea

Relaxing ambient piece. I continue to love using the automation controls in Ableton Live.

surviving in the wilderness

An ambient noise / drone piece with a dark mood.
posted to MeFi Music by wastelands at 4:16 PM on November 22, 2008

a woman claiming to be the devil

A harsh, glitchy, beat-driven piece.

boxing in a flooded basement

My most melody-driven piece thus far. I'm not totally happy with it, but I got tired of tweaking things. I have several other half-finished music projects I want to work on, so it was nice push this out the door.

xenomorph banging drums

Perhaps my most "complete" song yet. A five-minute ambient / glitch backbeat punctuated by percussion.

from troposphere to exosphere

More ambient / noise / drone stuff.

Mellow Ocean Groove

Just a sketch/idea of a song. Doubt I'll do anything with this, but it seemed a shame to toss it.

Ancient Music Makers

My second song ever, made in Ableton Live. I figured out how to use the automation controls for better fades in/fades out, and I think it has a cleaner sound overall than my first one. Comments welcome.

Napping in the valley at dusk

My first song; made in Ableton Live 7 LE. It's a drone/ambient noise piece. Comments welcome, but please be gentle. (Warning: high dynamic range, starts out quiet, but gets loud.)
