Battle 51 – One-Minute Wonders


#61

Here is my 4th !
We continue to rush into space, where our acolytes land on a desert and arid planet reminiscent of our North African desert.

Ok I’m sprinting to the finish line here. It’s my fourth track, and ALMOST NEVER even existed, because… well, I almost perished this morning. I don’t know where you are all from, but up here in Maine (USA) we’re getting a ton of snow and it’s like at least -10 outside regularly. This morning my car started fishtailing in the snow and I went off the road on the right, but I could have easily gone into the oncoming traffic lane on the left (where an all-business Mack truck was coming at me head on). Scary shit. Luckily I’m fine, and even my car is too, but as soon as I got home I started working on this melody. Everything’s internal except for a break beat which is pretty buried now and some pitched up vocal cuts of myself singing “almost never.” This has been fun exercise over the past month. I know I’ve gotten a lot more comfortable with the machine and it’s been a pleasure listening to everybody’s creations. Happy New Year folks.

Here is my first entry. I liked the idea a lot, at least because I had about 5 one minute ideas on the tape tracks, but could not decide which one to “finish”. Here is one of these recorded with Ukulele. I tried to do a bass line recording in 200% tape speed and pitching it down.

Warning, sleigh bells (and dodgy singing with too much reverb) within! Merry Christmas everyone.

Just listened to A Winged Victory For the Sullen. Beautiful stuff mate. Is it all op1 stuff?


Not mine, but they’re probably my favourite band.
