One year in the making, dance, ambient, and experimental tracks made with a mix of improvisation and detailed care. Mostly performed using my own software instrument in Max/MSP.
Based around a short sample of me rubbing the built-in laptop microphone. Lead part is this sound through a vocoder. Improvised with a few overdubs. The feeling of being lost with a dead phone.
The sample is sourced from a short film made by my Grandfather in 1974 in Peoria, IL.
Checks for pulse
Mac wrong button noise, feedback from laptop internal mic and speaker, 808 kick. Edited down from an 8 minute improvisation.
Manual sampling of a song I made in 2013. Assembled in Pro Tools. Oldest song on here.
A million drives at 2am passing Waveland Bowl, coming home and sitting down. Sample manipulation in Max, no-input mixing, and a lot of careful assemblage in Pro Tools.
Pulling a piece of ribbon, popping a cap, and a Dollar Tree whistle.
Wake up call
Improvisation with recording from laptop mic.

I don’t remember how I made most of this. Probably laptop mic noise and my voice is also in there. Max improvisation and Pro Tools assemblage.
Almost all sounds from a two-bar drum loop. Edited down from a longer improvisation in Max.
