    "I guess the bits that have less directly to do with your strict rules," <-- actually, if you listen closely, there are still 2 tones there! they just blended together in a buzzy way thanks to the actual sync. it's almost like an optical illusion...except with sound. or something.

    Hey, what's wrong with Portishead?! I'm shocked!

  • @cherok40  Mar 1

    Thanks for listening and your nice comments on "February Moon".
    Please don't talk yourself down - you make good and imaginative music yourself.

    Thanks so much for the kind note on my soundboard. Congrats on hitting 30 songs!

  • @humblecomposer  Feb 24

    Thanks for the comment on One Eleven Phlecksy!

  • @bluesgut  Feb 13

    Hey thanks for the comment on the track Overexposure. You asked about how i got the bass patch I did on that song. Really the heart of that sound is modulating the FM and resonance. I can send you a screenshot of the patch if that is helpful.

    ah! Rephlex is a record label that Aphex Twin created. some of the early releases had a really fun free-form but chillout sound, often from artists that only appeared on one album.
    groups like the railway raver
    or the lisa carbon trio

    I'm actually pretty bad about leaving comments, but I'm listening to all of your stuff, at least o/
    as for F2FM: that's a vst that I made myself. see here:

  • @petemurphy  Feb 6

    Hiya! Yeah, I'll definitely revisit your page and listen to more. I really enjoyed the song I listened to. I'll be doing some commenting later tonight, so I'll try to pop around and listen to some more.
    Looks like you're having a REALLY productive time. 14 already! Wow! Well done.

  • @mkd  Feb 6

    Thanks for listening and commenting! To be fair, I don’t remember when bananas were new in the uk either, but my Dad does... (shortly after WW2 I think, or mamybe early 50s)

    Hi and thanks for listening those things! For the cut ups, it was partially random, and it got better /more random as I went on: First I had full sentences, then for the second verse I cut those in pieces and mixed them, then in the end it was just stream of consciousness with those words, so yeah, maybe not completely at random but I like how it seems like coded program running through functions; you have a certain pool of choices and then it is just randomization and reassembling! And most of the stereofield comes from recording mostly with a stereo recorder; that way where you position things in the room already affects the stuff, which I like. Some people think everything should be mono so you can control everything, but I want to deconstruct the illusion of control most of the time.
