A Slam Edit…  then the Exhausting version… 

Just very VERY poorly edited set of moments from a 2 and a half hour improvisational session with Patrick Higgins, aka…   Badrico.

We are both contributing synthetics, and percussion etc…  Patrick via a wind controller and keys, (I think), im playing Bass, El guitar, µFreak and percussion and sound effects.

Mix is a mess because its a live performance and we have to manage as we go…

Hit play and trance out for 23 mins.

or, if your a sucker for punishment, the 90 min version, Still some bad edits…

I’ve come to realise / acknowledge the amount of focus and concentration required to make this work,

Panama 1989

So back in1989 a friend (C Giles) and i did a STEINSKY inspired track, all done on a Tascam 4 track cassette, Ensoniq, SQ80, a DX7 and an Akai S900. We created a beat track, then performed the rest in live to tape then sampled bits of the radio news reports as it was coming in live.

The way the reporter was expressing totally justifiable fear, (understandable) but also some indignation that he was not ‘TOLD’ really spoke volumes about US entitlement!

We finished the track 45 mins after the news report had ended ran off a normal cassette and walked down to the national radio station, 2JJ.

We told the on air DJ what we had done, and he playefd it (unlistend) to Australia 10 mins later. One of the best experiences of my musical production life.

THIS WAS IT:

A Certain Throb… 

Sometimes things REALLY come together fast…

HUGE UPS to the always TOTALLY ON  @Badrico

How it Started…

Where we went…

Where we ended up.

More Binaural messing around.

I’ve been using a couple of old mixes as test benches for LogicX’s new ATMOS PlugIn. I only have a quadraphonic setup, and obviously, most people are NOT set up in 7.1.4, so I’m rendering these out on Binaural.

First go, so pretty clunky and Not to spec, but quite interesting to play in.

Messing with the ATMOS. Smoke (in the wind). HEADPHONES NEEDED

Badly ATMOS mixed by Kirke Godfrey

 

This mix is a very hasty port from a Stereo mix…

into Binaural output of ATMOS as compared to a 5.1 or 7.1.4 etc.

Im sure I’ve been here before…..

Back in 1987 I bought one of these.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ensoniq_SQ-80

Its internal sequencer,  timbral range and the fact it was 8 part multi timbral made it incredibly powerful and amazing value for money for the time.

All these years later I got to be glancingly involved in the design and testing of this recreation.

It sounds GREAT. and gave me a HUGE sense of DejaVue.

Some NICE work here. Jam with the short handles!

Jam with the short handles! Had some very special moments with cng303 (Chris Ng ) and mng (Mongi)

These moments appear fleetingly and then morph and twist into new shapes in a matter of mins.

I captured these a few mins apart.

Some Rather FUN(ky) moments
