Description
This is the last entry in this round of Buddha Machine experiments. Thanks for listening and I'd appreciate any comments or criticisms. February 28th I 'll be submitting my RPM Challenge CD to their site:
http//www.rpmchal/...
This is a one track improvisation using a single loop from the Buddha Machine as a sound source and sequence trigger through a Sequential Circuits Pro One synth while I twiddle with the knobs and such.
Again this is open to collaboration - and I hope to release a companion remix CD. No pressure here - just appreciation.

spooky
Wow! That was sending shivers down my back.
And there was me thinking the buddah machine was a sort of 'chill out' kind of thing.
Really heavy textures.
This should be in an early David Lynch film.
~Amazing

Geeze,
This would be the muzak playing at the entrance to the gates of hell. I got shivers up my spine. Yeah, it is David Lynch spooky. Thanks, Bud.

I posted a note - thanks to Smokey
on the picture in the description. It's a very cool installation. The harshness is coming from the noise generator in the synth along with one of the dirtier loops and pushing the envelope while holding back on the modulation. Glad you liked it. I find it's like a sustaining grunge guitar - or something Neil Young did on Arc/Weld.

feedback
I think this one I like the best of the group. it has some cool effected guitar type of feedback going on.

monster sound from a tiny box.
Check out my latest song called Strawberry Fields
bud said 3044 days ago (February 24th, 2009)
Thanks Vic
The truth is that the tiny box is just the sound source for the massive box that is the Pro One synth. There's nothing like that machine when it comes to big sound. It's essentially a monophonic Prophet synthesizer with two oscillators - a noise generator - sequencer, and infinite parameter control. It sounds so good because it's good old pure analog.

meditation bell
whoa. This is my favorite Buddha tune. The sound is immediately accessible yet way complex. Sounds like the end of the ring of a large bell, where the sound waves are breaking up but you can just still hear it, only amplified.

Electro remake of the 2001 star gate
Another cool environment you've painted here - like psycho-metal rock from the stars.

Another hit!

Thanks,
Doug

Nice Journey
This is some really good mediation music. I felt like I was on a tour boat (going somewhere). Have you ever been on a tour that you were upset when it ended? This is one of them.

Well done.

Thanks for listening Mitchell
and taking the time to comment. Can't say I've ever been on a tour boat - but I've had many trips end before I wanted them to.

It's not just the loop
it's also the Pro One synth mixing with affecting and being affected by the loop.

One really needs to be willing to change her point of view as the scenery changes......

This is a lovely, big track, Mr Kevin Jones! Very meaty indeed.
