Description
CAUTION - lower volume for headphones!

Yes another Buddha Machine experiment. It's nice that these have gotten such a warm reception, and have managed to generate some wonderful collabs. My thanks to the community for support in this endeavor. I usually never post more than one piece a week - but I'm working on a deadline for my RPM challenge CD "Month of Sundays" and I will likely include remixes with the release.

So here's another one - using the piano loop that has been heard hear before - most noticeably in Everything Merges with the Particledots collab. This was created mostly in Audacity using noise reduction to alter the sound of the original loop. Different levels and selected frequencies were used to create the clipped sounds that you are hearing. Editing and mastering was done in GarageBand 08 adding some reverb and delay.
Again - this is open for recycling and efforts submitted before Feb. 25 could be included on the Month of Sundays CD.

Oh, this is such fun...
...to listen to. I really like the fluid feeling of this little confection. Your choices are very nice, and the panning of "stops" keeps the listener moving here and there with your actions. These are wonderful, surprising creations. How fun. You must be having a ball. (Quite a departure from your night club sessions. Just imagine the audience if you plugged them in to this!!!...) Keep 'em coming.
Peace.
Paul

Are you refering to "stops"
like organ stops? Not sure I understand the use here. Thanks for commenting - insightful as always. I will be doing this in a club setting in May I hope - part of a special event for a departed friend. They are fun to work on.

Speakers are the way to go

Thaks Daniel -
I'm trying to do something different each time out to keep it interesting and to see what can be done from limited source material.

Reminds me of
a visit I made to a vast cave of glow worms which were turning their bioluminescent lights on and off. Very cool Bud.

Be well,
Doug

Cosmic blips
Like moving through the dark emptiness of space at the point near the speed of light where time slows right down. Not that I've ever done that of course, but watching Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" while stoned has given me a good feel for it.

I think my cat wants to collaborate. She mewed and whined right the way through this (actually I think she just wants food, but it was an interesting sonic combination).

The sounds are
like droid/pets..not quite chirps, mews or barks..definitely like little yelps and sighs of actual pets. There is the sense of water dripping from a leaky faucet, too. Amazing stuff. Thanks.
