I keep coming back to @kln’s “sleeping in puddles of blues”.
The opening makes me think of S. Maharba’s sound, and I dig the overall sound signature, unmistakably our dear @kln’s
I can’t put the finger on why exactly, but it surely is my favorite track.
Close second is @FJNA’s cycle sounds, that makes me think I have totally forgotten to use mine.
I would have liked the idea to be developed further, the overall ambient mood and the little sparks of noise, I found it beautiful. I could have been listening to such piece for several minutes, a pity it only lasts one.
@oceanjaws there is something very pleasant in your sound, it’s very soft and gentle.
The opening chords were interesting, especially after the little cycle drumming.
Made me want to conceive a chord progression that never stops… Next time maybe
@ssam’s Concheiros - Roubaix is a lovely piece, in my top 3 tracks. It totally deserve’s above votes!
@psound74 you sent me back to 80’s with your track. I didn’t get the morse code you were referring to.
Your track reminded me that I forgot to use an incredible synth patch I got by cranking the spring reverb to 11 on the digital engine… I really dig your use of the OP-1 sound design capabilities.
@kln’s what a goof starts with a bass that gives some distortion (which I’m really into these days). With some excitement I was hoping something very experimental from this very first note.
Alas around the first minute you drop some beat. Well, of course it got this special flavor of yours, you can’t be blamed for that
Still, I would have loved to hear what this resonating bass could have become in a more experimental path. I enjoyed this sound!
A few words on my track: I am very happy to have finished something, thank you again @mixrasta for letting the door opened. I hadn’t been playing with the OP-1 for a long time, and it took me some time to get comfortable with the tape again… 4 mono audio tracks, 1 special FX, this unforgiving workflow… I tend to forget all of this when I’m jamming with the Elektrons. Anyway, I felt some pleasure again first in pushing patches to the limits to get noise, and after that when composing.
I was playing with the idea to sell it, lately, but this battle made me reconsider the whole idea.
Listening to the track again, I find it funny that somehow it reminds me of some previous tracks of mine. All the sound except field recording are from Model:Cycles, that I really dig, starting with the name ^^
@mixrasta your track belongs here, and put some conclusion to this list: thank you dear for this beautiful battle!
May I say, I was amazed to see so many cycles, definitely my favorite way of moving (I use it 4 times a day minimum).
