You're right....
it sounded very skeletal at a lower volume. It's very gentle; and the fade-in to Brooklyn traffic ambience with bass has a back-in-the-day romance. Very nice.

Glad you dropped by and commented
guess I could have posted at lower volume. I like it at 1/2 on my iBook with headphones.

You're full of surprises, aren't you?

I have to explore more of your noise collection so that I can begin to try to figure you out. I know you're a Residents fan, sbut that's about it.

Cool track. I downloaded it.

There's a book of photography by
William Eggleston called "The Democratic Forrest". I love the work, but especially the title. Add that to Brian Eno, The Residents, Steve Reich, Aphex Twin, Arvo Part, Tery Riley, My Bloody Valentine, Pere Ubu, etc. and I'm pretty predictable. Thanks for your interest.

The only thing predictable about your stuff is it's unpredictability. Great list of influences.

Our fellow MacJammer cjdaley recently saw Pere Ubu in Paris. That had to be a great show.

Keep it up Bud.

Thanks for revealing the recipe for Bud Soup.

I would say that this is...
..."unusual". But, well...that has negative connotations. This is anything but negative. And I love "unusual" things.

Stockhausen could easily be on your list of influences, too...

Awesome, bud. I loved this.

Sometimes the usual gets played and
it's nice to break out of the song form every once and a while. That's one of the benefits of these machines we all work with - they're not musical instruments. Glad you took a minute to comment. I figured this was a fan killer for sure.

Hey Vic - thanks for dropping in
Sure - you can do whatever you want with this. I f you play it really loud you can pretend you're getting an MRI - or an alien brain scan. I actually thought about the railroad crossing scene in Close Encounters when I heard that clip for some reason.

Oddly enough
the last time I had an MRI I fell asleep in it.

Things on fire...
Just absolutely fascinating. I'm always amazed when someone manages to take sound and layer it in a way that just grabs my attention without playing much in the way of notes. This is like alien chatter, things on fire, reversed nightmares, but not in a frightening way.

It takes a whole bucketload of skill to pull something like this off, bud. I'm not surprised given your abilities, but it's still something to give you props over.

Dang Ledeb - you got me blushin
Thanks for the kind words and gettin into the noteless music.

Holy Crap.
How'd you do this!? This is great, in it's zzz whoosh clunk fashion.
It's like getting run over by a thirty-ton ball of jello in the middle of rush hour---it's delicious!

Hidey Greg -
Basically I just built part one out of sound effect loops - the I bounced it to and from iTunes and took the resulting track and glabbed little bits to use as samples that I looped and messed with so it all sounds related but evolving/devolving. A few extra clunks and wizzes for spice and some country road at night and your home.
Thanks for asking.

spatial perception here
spatial perception here - a nice trip around the Van Allen belts.

who was it that was big into shortwave samples, morse code snippets, and that?

love the train clicky clacks at the very end

thanks

Hey Bill
You're probably thinking of the Conet Project on shortwave number stations - here's a link. Can't wait to hear your next vocal piece.

Dont know how I missed this one! You know how I like experimental. Realy pushing it in this one. Now tell me was that the 7 train going by!

Hey EB -
You're right - it's the 7 headed out to Flushing for Korean Barbecue.

i am slowly
working my way through your back catalog. this is really great. disturbing in the way that i like to be pushed by sound. i could see this in Kubrick's THX-1138 really easily.

Thanks for digging deeper
and for the welcome disturbance. I'll have to go back and hear what the score for THX sounds like - it's been a long time since I saw it. If you haven't seen it lately - check out Friedkin's "The Sorcerer" remake of Wages of Fear with the Tangerine Dream soundtrack.
