So I've always loved Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies & when I saw that the Week 5 challenge was to use them in a song I knew that was something I'd be doing (since I've already used them a couple of times on 50-90 songs this year before the challenge was announced). So I clicked on the online card draw & got "Think of Radio". For some reason I had the song tittle in my head (thank you, my Muse) & I knew I wanted to play with HG Fortune's synths (of course!). So this features the Dream Machine Pro & the Avatar ST Pro. The Dream Machine is the main synth & the Avatar gives us those lovely bell-like tones. HG Fortune's Percumat 2 is also featured with the drums. But the rest of this track is made up of samples from Freesound.org.
So Radio, Telephone & other dimensions (there's nine different chords played by the two synths, so there's the nine dimensions - if you're wondering) - it all sort of started with the one sample about getting the wrong number. I just kept finding interesting Radio & Telephone samples & started playing around with them in Buzz. I rendered it out & then uploaded it here. I really like how it all came together
So, this is song 49 (counting a collab in the works). My plan for song #50 is to go back to my roots (sort of) - guitar, loops, probably some Frippertonics & using my "Live" setup to its potential. It should be fun. But that's tomorrow's task
See You In The Shadows…
