"Crazed Laptop Laugh"

Streaming version on Bandcamp: 03:18 min

From my current release Similarity Engine


Was visiting fruitfly and peef in Houston and we found various beats and sounds on the internet and "played" them on our respective laptops (notably cowbells and weird laugh). Peef recorded the session and I cut it up into small loops to make this track. At the end I added some piled-up musical motifs, using Socalabs' vintage computer game chip emulations (running as plugins in Tracktion Waveform) and other software instruments.

The screenshot of the Tracktion Waveform DAW tells you little or nothing -- that is to say, as much as the wave file images that Soundcloud uses. A crude "indexical" record of the music, not a score per se.
