"Jim Stark Is a Lonely Kid"

"Jim Stark Is a Lonely Kid" [1.3 MB .mp3]

Manipulated vocal piece. A random line from Danny Peary's book Cult Movies, his essay on Rebel Without a Cause, is read aloud into a microphone recording directly into Doepfer's A-112 8-bit sampler. The audio output from the A-112 gets various Eurorack filtering and FX treatments, then is further edited in Tracktion's Waveform DAW.

"Scheduled Appointment 3"

"Scheduled Appointment 3" [.mp3 removed -- please listen on Bandcamp]

Minimo-classical-style music made with the modular synth (Tiptop Audio Z3000 oscillators, arranged in a chord), then edited and enhanced in Tracktion's Waveform DAW. Kindergarten melodies are deployed so as not to distract from the main point, timbre changes of the Z3000 -- primarily modifications of triangle waves via the oscillators' "waveshaper" inputs. Bubblesound's uLFO module is feeding sine and triangle waves into those inputs.

Underlying crunchy beats (and bass notes?) are borrowed from previous "Scheduled Appointment" versions.


"Organleggers" [.mp3 removed -- please listen on Bandcamp]

More minimo-classical-style music made with Carla, a Linux plugin host, and the Ardour DAW. Midi sequencers play a variety of LV2 (Linux) software synths I can't get to work in Tracktion's Waveform DAW as plugins. The audio is streamed via JACK directly into Waveform and recorded/edited into loops. The loops are then arranged in Waveform.

Underlying crunchy beats are from the Moody Wav Collection.
