Moments in Time #1

This is 'extreme bells'. There is a severity of bells. It's an experiment in varying some simple bell sounds, adding and playing around with resonance and other sonic textures.

The original mix was VERY loud. I've rendered it down 3 times by 50% each time, to bring it to current levels.

The mix has had realtime tweaks, as the piece progressed, so in some ways it's produced in a similar way to Michael2's recent experimental offerings, although it was not produced using Gleetchlabs 2, but Audiomulch. I used an exisiting example 'machine' and made it my own, tweaking things, in real time, that are not repeatable 100%.

super cool
i'm in love with this piece. i was just sitting outside, playing this loud enough to hear from across the yard and it was an incredible experience. it is so haunting, and those sounds are so pure to me. strange how something so synthetic can be so natural at the same time. not natural like bells, but like the sound of being alone somewhere far away and you can hear things faintly in the air around you. I was in Big Sur one time and i could hear the ocean far away, and the wind and grasses and bees and it made a quiet sound similar in effect to this. great piece. really. do you mind if i run this through Gleetchlab and see what happens?

Hi Michael...
I'm glad you liked the piece.

Do with it what you want, as with any of my pieces that are available here, now, or will be in the future. In fact I'd be honoured if you came up with something that you wanted to share with everyone. Gleetchify to your hearts content!! Or whatever else you want to do.

Take care.

It's excellent Michael.....
I listened to your mix this morning and will be playing it again in the comfort of my flat, now I'm home from work.

Thanks for doing such a sterling job with the piece.

Take care.

I felt like...
...I was there in real time. On a headset you can get really close. Actually, I'd UP the volume on the final mix. You have such an amazingly creative and innovative way at looking at sound. It is always such a pure and unexpected experience to hear your work. This is one of your best. How do you think of this stuff? Sui generis...that's all I can say.

Hi Paul.....
I think that the short answer to 'how I think of the work I do' is to say that very little is 'not worth trying or playing with'. My rule is not to have a rule of genre or definitive style, except eclectic. I've always tried everything, as a learning experience and my mind is such that if I am stimulated in any way, I almost overflow with ideas, sometimes to the neglecting of other things. My motto is probably 'Know, Will, Dare, Make noise'.

Thanks for listening, as always. Michael2 has made the tune his own, with his rendition (<a href = http://www.macjams.com/song/37340 </a>) although the link may not work, as I can't get it to create a hyperlink on my main page here and the original collaboration link I have there has also stopped working!!

Take care.

There's a typo in the link.....
I've also broken the link in my earlier comment, by leaving out a character, so it doesn't even make a hyperlink now!!

Dislexic fingers. Don't you just hate 'em!!

Very good abstract piece .
There has been a bells concert here. A composer wrotte
a piece for all the churches bells of the old town of Nice. It was very unique .
Bravo for your sound experiment here .

Thanks Henri....
I love church bell music and I would have loved to listen to the sound of those in Nice.

I'm glad you liked this piece. There's others of a similar nature to follow.

Take care.
