hi Dee

glad you enjoyed this!

it was a little foray into making echoes that aren't really echoes, and just fooling around with Garage Band...

GB is an endless playground!

thanks Steve for listening and commenting!


i'm just an ordinary guy. this won't help my cause:

Phrase of the week : "Plato's cave allegory had it wrong. In the holographic model, the two dimensional 'shadows' are the reality. It is the three dimensions we think we see that are the illusion." -- Bill Grundmann (2006)

this circulated for a little while as an email trailer, but i never could track down the source. the text itself is an excerpt from a letter i had sent to Scientific American, and they published it. shocked the heck out of me to see it in print!

but really, i'm just an ordinary guy. i'm not a mad scientist. i just read too much.

once again a very inventive piece.

I wonder where ideas come from?

great sounds
this is really intersting. i love that metallic sounding sound in the first part. was that a reverb trick? almost sounds like doing nitrous when i was a kid. i'm always blown away that you record your stuff on GB. how are you able to control all of the delay effects? the vocal at the end gives it such a nice way out, a touch of humanity after all of the digital mayhem. really nice smokey.

that metallic thing is the flanger set to full slow - so that it is static. i made three separate tracks to set the "pitch" on the drums to three different notes - and cut them in and out to make the little melodic riff.

the delay effects are actually just very short loops of guitar samples, with lots of volume automation on it. sounds like an echo - but it ain't!

i don't recall why i chose to use the vocal loop for the ending - but i like your explanation a lot!

an Eno vibe on the site these days, it seems to me.

I love things like this, especially when they're this well done. Good sounds and good decisions. I will admit that if this were my song, I would have thought up the bubble/medium bit after the fact; but I'm interested: which came first, the song or the description?

SmokeyVW said 4119 days ago (February 8th, 2008)
i had just read an article about the new Large Hadron Collider near Lake Geneva - it's coming online this year. they're expecting lots of exciting new physics discoveries.

because of that article it somehow made me think about cosmic rays, the solar wind, the aurora borealis, and this low frequency radio effect called whistlers caused by magnetic storms. this song started out from that direction. sort of outer space stuff.

in seeking a title and picture, the idea came to mind of the old bubble chambers (i don't know if these are still used any more, i suspect not). that turned the theme inside out: it's more like inner space.

so during the final work on this i had ideas of chambers, oscillating electrons, and resonance in mind. the static-flanging and echoey stuff came from that i guess.

you had to ask! :-)

I had to ask
and I'm glad I did! Thank you for the insight into your method (at least for this).

I'm way behind on my Smokey doses
this is really cool - you've been busy. What a fresh sound that sweeps in after the first third - highly original. Great concept and execution.

that sound is actually a mixture of a recycled loop that i had made for Progress http://www.macjams.com/song/30292 (and some ukulele loops from around that same time roughly a year ago). i found that flanging can be used to make the "waves" effect from that loop sound even more like moderate waves crashing on the shore...

i've found myself revisiting old ideas to find new ideas lately.
