5. Speed With A Smile


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Shop girl contemplating the day dream of speed. Bud’s guitar tracks are the basis for this piece which evolved into a pop bounce skank with the addition of a choppy reggae organ motif.

Track 5 of the RPM Challenge entry Let Your Mind Stay. The RPM Challenge dictates that a CD of at least 10 songs or 35 minutes in length be created from scratch in the month of February. Bryn Corbett aka Particledots and Kevin Jones aka Bud embraced the opportunity to work together long distance (Phoenix AZ / Brooklyn NY) having done so in the past along with Michael2 and others. The first week Bud posted 5 demos to the shared drop box (mostly guitar - bass - drum ideas) which Particle proceeded to run through his blender. What came back were often radical remixes enhanced by synths and other sonic perversions. Bud then added vocals or some other noise and stuck it back in the box. So it went back and forth without a word spoken and virtually no comments or directions via email. Along the way Particle produced a couple of tracks from scratch and eventually we had an evening chat as we approached completion - followed by two new tracks and a flurry of remixes.
