scanning for intelligence - disquiet0095-discussamongst by would-be messiahs published on 2013/10/03 16:31:33 +0000 ambient concrete dub This track is my most recent and was initially intended for a compilation based on robot themes. As per usual, time ran out before I could finish, so instead it's earmarked for a new 7 track ep I'm working on. Built primarily around samples taken from Battlestar Galactica, I've crushed and filtered the original samples to create a two part noise/drone composition that continues my current infatuation with the concept of the first humans' contact with alien life in an alien environment. It is one of the more cohesive musical compositions I've constructed lately, but still is heavily influenced by spontaneous sound generation and the refusal to remove any imperfections this causes. It also follows my m.o. of using as simple and as inexpensive soft and hardware as possible. If I can do it, any 12 year old should be able to.
