this album is made of the audio from a bunch of short videos of bass loops (a few added ipad synths as well). that i did on facebook and youtube (sonic postcards)—the videos showed just the amp while the audio played, just a goofy little project.
so . . . the process was to do a stereo loop, video/audio record it with the mono mic on my iphone and then post it. i did this for several days in a row, took a break and then did it again.
next i dumped them all into abelton live, trimmed them, repeated a few of them to create grooves/beds, created a form and collaged them together. then i recorded some of the composited tracks and manipulated those and laid them over the basic collage.
this is very much a trance, walk-around-the-house piece . . . though it can also be fun to listen to with headphones.
