    Waking Battle

    Dreaming Fortress

    Midnight in the Machine

    This was a precursor to my ambient/electronic project known as "Down There". I recorded this along with a few other songs back in 2008 onto a 4-track tape recorder for a school project.

    It seems kind of in the same vein as the stuff I am putting on here now. I was experimenting with atmospheres but not in the traditional way we think of them. There are a few samples of songs I was listening to at the time during the intro and that is me walking into my laundry room and pushing a button at the beginning.

    I made all the samples of people talking and random noises on a hand-held mini-cassette recorder over the course of two months or so. I recorded all that I could, just random sounds or conversations people were having that I found interesting. I took a lot of inspiration from Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes and the stuff he was doing with sound collages on his albums. I also want to point out that this song was made entirely with analog tape and took many many hours to complete. I'm pretty proud of that because I don't think I'd have the patience to do anything like that again.

    I hope you enjoy it! You can download it and a few more songs from that project for free here:
