Description
From an APOD email a few days ago: PD to Bud + M2

This honestly was a quick mix (well, quick for me - 2.5hrs)

Firstly, the bass - I doubled it and put different compressors on each
track...then on one of the tracks I added a low pass filter and only allowed
the really low frequencies thru. They blended together in a nice dubby kind
of way - big, boomy but not particularly muddy

The drums - I copied to 2 tracks as well - one track I left relatively dry
with some compression. The other track I applied the space designer reverb
and used a setting called 'soccer field'. I cranked the reverb up to max
then blended the audio of the (very) wet reverb drum track with the dry

I isolated a few of bonham's fokkin ell's and pitch shifted one of them in
logic. I added the tape delay plugin and set it so as soon as the pitch
shifted Bonham says fokkin ell, I 'froze' the delay it repeats throughout
the song

I added augustus loop to kevins shruti or tanpura sample (cant remember
which one now)

THEN (lol) I added about 4 vocals and just for the hell of it I put augustus
loop on everyone of my voices so I am buried in echo. 3 of my vocal tracks
I routed to their own buss and I added a spectral filter. I bounced down
the sound of that and then removed the filter. I placed the bounced
spectral filter track at the beginning and end of the song (it was
originally in the middle) but I left the original vocals in there too. I
wasn't listening to closely to the words that michael was actually singing,
so my 4th vocal was basically saying 'sale - ur' Its kind of lost in all the
echo swathe but I did a bit of my pet sounds-like harmonizing...however, the
essence of it comes thru which in a way is more effective

I think as there is such a unanimous thumbs up for this, I wont attempt a
version 4, 5, 6 etc....its actually quite good to be spontaneous in a sense
and say this is how the cards fell when I dropped them and I like what I got

:-)

Going back to who played what on here (it kind of gets lost as we add layer
upon layer - and it doesn't really matter to be honest), but I think here is
the summary

Bud - skysaw guitar (taken from spinning away track) - additional echo
effects applied
PD - synths, subtle sequenced pattern
This was pitched down, mixed and made into working title track 'spin
artifact'
M2 - vocals, finger drums, fokkin ell, Bonham and various other sound
textures
Bud - bass, shruti, tempura
PD - drum+bass enhancements, remix of elements, even more echo, vocals

Final mastering done in soundforge

I toyed with the idea of calling it 'fokkin ell', sailor, saleur or spinart
- any preferences for any of these suggestions or better ideas for a title.

If you are all in agreement, we can post

you guys are sensational together. of all the collab teams i've heard at MJ, the 3 of you, putting your musical energies together, create the most incredible, almost surreal results. this is truly an example of the whole being more than the sum of the parts. i LOVE this!

haha
our private communiques, open to the world. now they'll know all of our secrets. haha. actually the drum I played was one of those african tongue drums (got it at a flea market), and the "real" drums are John Bonham from an outtake of "fool in the rain."

you left out how the basis of this song was artifacts from another song that Bryn was working on. sounded like shoegaze guitar on it's own. great fun (as usual).

Hell I'm faving this cause I like it
and PD is the man with the blender! The cards certainly fell your way this time. I could never juggle the layers of beautiful confusion that you seem to thrive on. It's a joy to through stuff at the wall with you two guys. Thanks to anyone who stops by for a listen.

Bryn got the bass eq just right
I played the bass part by hammering with my thumb on the string as close as possible to the bridge - new trick for me. When you're only playing one note you have to do something different.

Incredible. I LOVE when people post the details of their process. Most of it is way over my head but I like to decode an idea and try to work it in to something I do. Really intense sounds.

Which came first, the M2 vox or the soundbed? Impressive either way.
