Jharms 10

Influences:   Who knows anymore. It's probably gonna get weird

2021 Jharms here. Pronouns: he/him/his. I haven't done this in around five or six years; was a semi-regular fawmer from 2009-2015 or so.

I've changed a lot in the intervening years; one band broke up, another started. I got married. I switched genres a few times. I have cats now. Mostly these days I make more experimental/ improvisatory/ harsh music, so I have no clue what I'm going to write this year (or even if what I end up making could be considered a "song"). But even one track is an achievement, right?

EDIT: Well it looks like most of my songs this year seem to include or highlight a no-input mixer, or playing a mixer as an instrument. Since I've been asked a few times, I wanted to provide a bit of background: you can actually use patch cables to plug the input of a channel into the output of the board (or other similar patches); this produces a feedback loop that can then be manipulated (somewhat randomly) by the controls on the mixer.

    Thanks for your comment on Negations! I used a plugin called charsiesis (chorus / voice multiplier) on top of some growly muttering to get that vocal effect.

    Hiya! There are three layers, two of them are living room ambience and the other one is a sample from a roadside. I think I added a little effect to it to create a doubled up kinda thing, but it worked and I had to use it haha thanks for your comment and allthabest!

    Thank you for your comment, again!
    I might be overusing that timeshift thingie a bit, but it's a nice and subtle way of getting things out of whack.
    Today I discarded Shepard Tone experimentation. I need to revisit it at some point, though.

    Welcome back!

    Oooh cheers for your comment!! yeah I like the subtle changes in that song; reminds me of some old minimal drone stuff and the early Gran Turismo soundtracks with all the pumping kickbeats playing riding round the tracks! cheers 😁

  • @hyljetronic Feb 2

    Yeah, it wasn't anyones name! It's a good name you got there!

  • @hyljetronic Feb 1

    Thank you for your comment! I look forward hearing your stuff.
    I used to be in a band called Harms. Lol.

    Welcome back! Have a great FAWM!

    And one song makes two songs that much more likely. Enjoy being back! I had to take one year out, 2018 in my case. This place keeps its soul, I'd say.

    Yes, even one song is better than none. Welcome back.
