EVERYDAYS03 ~march~


loopy piano (addictive keys modern upright) polyrhythms & guitar rig. i quite like the atmosphere going on here.
[LYRICS] i think i'll lay on the floor for a while and lock my door to crumple up and lose my sight just for a while just for a while looking at photos of me or maybe not, it just seems to be are you still you when you're 3 layers of fucked just for a while just for a while
[LYRICS] if i give up please don't give up i need that if i give up please do your best i feel that it's not goodbye not see you soon it's just goodnight because i'm weak
[LYRICS] hey you with the look on your face what's it gonna be today hey you with the big idea whatcha got to say do you have the guts do you have the blood do you have the spirit or is it raining again i could fall apart i could break in two in a quiet place that's what i could do
K² - ball 01:16
the previous few days were pretty dreary - needed to lighten the mood with some very kirby chipmusic.
a cover of the tune of the same name from the killer7 soundtrack by Masafumi Takada. decided to use the VRC6 expansion as well for this one to give it some extra oomph.
riding the killer7 vibes a bit more - i've been replaying it for the millionth time and wanted to capture some of the energy i get from it. not necessarily in the style of the soundtrack or anything, but definitely takes cues from its sound design.
keeping those SUDA/Takada vibes going with a piece inspired by the soundtrack for The Silver Case. corny rompler lounge care of the korg legacy M1 software.
i really like the synths in this, which are stacks of the korg volca kick, bass, keys, and the td-3 being played in unison before being put through some delay and reverb. i love how the lead seems to have many 'stages' to it as a result of being so many different pieces of hardware layered together. the opening sounds are the ipad app "mononoke" recorded to a series of half and quarter speed tape loops across two cassette mixers.
from the same recording session as the previous track. i had set out to do a bunch of tape-to-tape dubbing to slow recorded sounds to 1/4 and degrade them more (as well as having a total of 10 available tape tracks), but "milky way dub" just wound up becoming fun - which is fine, but i still wanted to do the tape thing! so i did. the tape loops were created using korg's iM1 (rompler patches like that just work really well slowed down on tape) and the two synth lines on top are korg ODYSSEi and bram bos ripplemaker.
messing around with bringing what would normally be laji-2-ish live, unquantized synth lines and vocoder riffs to something more ravey. saw is volca keys, weird twangy left/right panned synth is volca kick, bass is td-3, vocoder is korg gadget as the carrier through ehx voicebox.
all sounds minus percussion are arturia microbrute + effect pedals. i didn't anticipate wanting to add percussion so the synth lines weren't recorded to a click track and the percussion was sequenced after the fact to an approximate bpm of the recordings, so it's a little off-kilter.
pedals, feedback, macintalk, vocoder, goldwave. adapted from Henry Scott-Holland's text "Death Is Nothing At All" death is nothing at all i have only slipped into the next room i am i and you are you whatever we were to each other, that we are still call me by my old familiar name speak to me in the easy way which you always used put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together play, smile, think of me, pray for me let my name be ever the household word that it always was, let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it life means all that it ever meant it is the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity why should i be out of mind because i am out of sight i am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner all is well.
true STG spirit. some serious Yasuhisa Watanabe inspiration going on here, especially in the bass department. lots of tailspins and stalls in the melody here, i really like the path it takes.
i started this out with something moodier in mind but it got more and more "chase scene" as it went. the main synth line turned out fun, if sometimes tropey. really been on a rompler kick, this is korg legacy M1 and wavestation.
my hardcore/gabber isn't usually this unabashedly industrial, but this was a blast.
synth1 only. cute ditty with a bit of a longing about it.
all synth1. many random elements on all patches except the bass tone, including randomized tuning (not just up/down, the entire tuning system on the main arp patch is constantly randomized based on the second oscillator's frequency), so if you play the mptm file back in openMPT (see goodies in notes section below) your playback will be a bit different.
CRT tv, wire taped to hand, pedals
took a few days off since the last entry to get my head on straight. taking it easy dipping back in with some laid-back rompler stuff. not having to worry so much about making sounds is always nice.
selected segments of a 1 hour 20 minute long live improv session.

while i missed a few days this month (sleep issues, i became ill, and the ongoing covid-19 event throwing me for a major loop), i'm really happy with what's here.
