Very cool
I really like this. I'm curious to know a little more about how you went about getting those very cool sounds. I'd also love to see this extended... it ends a bit too soon for me! I'm happy to know that a few people are working in this experimental vein.

Sounds
First of all, this is my entry for this month's KvR competition. The theme is "speed", and the time limit is one minute! Hence the shortness of this piece. Sorry.

I'll pull up my Logic project to see what I did....

Let's ignore the banal stuff like reverb and compression on the master bus.

The dry signal is one recorder, with me fluttering my fingers very fast, and just blowing haphazard pitches.

All other busses have a substantial delay (several seconds) on them to make the sound more independent from the input signal.

Bus 1: pitch shift 2 octaves down, and then a simple lowpass filter.

Bus 2: stereo delay, eq'ing, but mostly a granular delay that shifts the signal between 1 and 2 octaves up, and then just messes with it.

Bus 3: another granular delay, fixed at 2 octaves up; this one gets post-processed with some chorusy effect.

Finally, a "tape stop" effect, courtesy of Augustus Loop.

Thanks for commenting, and I'm glad it has your approval.

Recorder Gone Wild
Wow - Vic this is one wild ride. It was not what I was expecting, and caught me off guard in a pleasant way. Experiments like this are what make MJ such a great place. This is creative and engaging - I liked it and I'm looking forward to more of your experiments. Well done!

Thanks much
I have a couple more recorder pieces in a twentieth (shouldn't that be 21st by now?) century vein.

wicked warped wackiness
Bionic beatboxing. What an interesting thing to do... and I just read below, about how this is for a competition... possibly it would help others critique better if you stated the constraints of the competition in the description... I think it is more impressive and more meaningful to know you had specific rules you were restricted to for this... and it was not just idle "fiddling"... how do you "fiddle" with a recorder, anyway? :-)
ttfn,
Drakonis

No rules.
The KvrR competition only has a guiding theme, no restrictions otherwise. (Just the usual: has to be original, 128kbits mp3, time limit.)

reel fun
it reminds me of recording a birdsong on reel to reel and slowing it down. then mimic the sound and speed it up. it was done many years ago. the sped up flute sounds like a bird. the layered sounds create a feeling of anxiety. like a trapped bird. it is hoped that you win. 0x0

Cool tune
Very nice done like the animal effects feel like you're in a djungel (law of the jungle) I wish it had been little longer but what a heck nice experience... W/all the sounds good work.

Take care

Maybe my mind is playin tricks on me but I was imagining this weird thing in animation spitting out all kinds of things in a very fast fashing. But mixed in with the music it seemed fun to me that you have an enormously creative. Very edgy, love the creative humor of this.

cool.
right down to the 'tape-slow-down' effect at the end. sounds like a quality recorder too? (i'm probably dead wrong.) anyway, the only thing that was missing was a coda/bridge with a 'friendly giant' theme song solo. :)

Quality
No, you're right, this recorder cost several hundreds.

Are you refering to "Gentle Giant"? They used recorders occasionally.

Interesting
sounds- very creative.Did you stumble upon this by accident or actively look for that sound? Either way it sounds great.Reminds me a little of some things I've heard Eric Dolphy do on flute.I was just reading about a lost tribe in the Amazon- this would be perfect music for a documentary.

This is another great piece. Very beautiful! I love your 21st century tunes. Yes it is short, but that means you can listen to it 3 times in a row!

I never know what I am gonna get when I open up one of your songs but I am always eager to do it. Thank you for sharing everything you do. I wish I could be as versatile as you. Great stuff, I am glad I stopped by for a catch up session.

Flippin' 'eck! :o)

.. Vic .. this is wild! and quite wonderful .. I couldn't listen to it all day admittedly .. but .. it's still very creative and artistic: to me I get a sense of the sound of .. well .. if you had an aviary in a submersed submarine .. and someone opened a door .. 8o)
.. yup .. pretty stuck that image in my head now .. ;o)

Weird and wonderful.

I finished well in the lower half of the field. My tastes are a bit more weird than most people's, I guess.

birds gone berserk
Interesting effects! I'd like to hear more of this experimental type of recorder playing & recording.

Now if somehow you could duplicate some of these effects and actually NOTATE them for people to play...

...you could blow that old renaissance stuff out of the water!

I know that effects like this were formulated in the 20th century, but I think there should be a category for "21st century".

Effects
Thanks for the compliments.

I see no way to notate such effects, other than to write down the settings of the exact effects that I use. Some of it is simple, such as the delay setting which is a millisecond value, but the granular delay that is my favourite effect can not be described other than by giving you the preset.
