Fairytale Waltz

video

After a flood, a computer meltdown, a visit to the other side of the continent, and the construction of a new machine, finally back into the swing of things.

This waltz was made possible with the help of studio magic. While it is possible to play both parts at once, the effect is not quite the same.

Key: Bm
Tuning: Standard
Recorded: October 2009 at Studio 451

- Mixed by engineer extraordinaire Eric -

Magnetic Landscape

video

Ever wonder what magnetic cards sound like?

I cut up bus passes, hotel key cards, arcade cards, vhs tape and the like, and played them through my reel-to-reel. Recorded the sounds onto the computer, then recorded them back to the tape machine onto loops of tape. Covered the erase head of the tape machine, and plugged the output into the input. Because the recording head is slightly behind the playback head, it caused a delay. Swapping the channels on the input caused a ping-pong delay. Recorded it back onto the computer and made a montage of sorts. The computer was only used for timeline edits, no digital effects were used.
