"Throbbing and Tinkling" [3.3 MB .mp3]
"Psychic Superhighway" [7.8 MB .mp3]
I've been wanting to do a longish house thing that you could kind of get lost in. This is that thing. I'm continuing to use the Mutator filter to make the Sidstation more fluid and mooglike. I still need to do some clean-up--there's some hum to get rid of from plugging the Mutator into the wrong outlet.
I also updated "Kay Whole Again," adding a bass line and making it a bit more like this piece.
"Kay Whole Again" [3.7 MB .mp3]
Update: extended the length about 30 seconds, made minor edits throughout. The idea here was to explore one e-drum sample kit--adding pitch to some of the drums and seeing what happened with a tempo change. The Sidstation parts added for melodic interest kind of took over, as usual. I wrote the rhythms using overlayed fragments from a MIDI demo track.
Update 2: Added a bass line and some other changes to make it make it more house-y.
"Streetsong (Beat Up Remix)" [6.1 MB .mp3]
John Parker's mix of my Mac SE tune "Streetsong," and my mix of his mix. Incorporating a drum lock groove from the leaders of the 8 Bit movement.
