Good work :)
thanks :)
repeated listens is always a good sign :hihi:

well, this seems to have worked quite nicely with all four of you :D
Indeed! I thought it was surprisingly musical for what is essentially just noodling on a guitar when you're supposed to be getting high in church. I don't mean that I was humming the "chorus" to myself for days afterwards, but that the layers on layers of simple tones creates a very musical sounding landscape that seems to stretch to infinity and back. There's a harmonic depth as a result, but it's very different from the sound of a traditional band playing together. That's what makes it so fascinating. It's so much more than yet another nice sound(TM).
thanks again :)
to be honest i don't think id know how to write something with a chorus for you to hum :P that's not in my dna :hihi:

that and the impactful first moments

for a bit it really reminded me of something but it didn't occur to me immediately.
Fripp. Frippertronics. Smoother, though.


I would love to have two Revox A or B 77s and do that Eno trip Fripp stole from him...
which I learned from the back of a cereal box. Er, album cover.
:o that's quite the compliment, thanks :)

yeah a couple of tape decks would be nice for sure 8)
i should set up the two looper pedals and have a go at a "poor mans" frippertronics.

iirc, discreet music gave the set up diagram for what became known as frippertronics?

the ending is the tail end of the ebow and heavy reverbs (pedal and itb)
no freeze, just long tails and layers of reverb, so the long tails keep the later reverbs going...

thanks for listening :)

I think that's the one. Oddly, when I got up into the Electronic Music Lab at SFCM, sure there was a pair of Revox A77s in there. I made the loudspeakers feed back via a mic and setting the record and pb heads apart in that oldschool method and then with that printed on some tape I did the thing. It was an epiphany to find this clean and very limited sound source spark all this SOUND.

Sounds fantastic! I love how the fuzz guitar contrasts the more diffuse drone. Very well done.
Thanks for sharing!

sadly, by the time i got to manchester they had gone all pro tools rigs :( worse still was finding out it was only a few years before and they sold off various tapes and multitracks for dirt cheap :cry: as well as exchanging a load of classic synths, minimoogs/microwaves et al for a load of korg ms2000. don't get me wrong, i love my ms2k, but surely having choices would have been better?

and i got bollocked by some old dude for plugging a mic in to a guitar fx chain and swinging it in front of the cab. apparently i was going to blow it up.
great days :D

Back in the day (1996-ish), I'd invite friends over to my place to jam. One of the guys in the group wasn't really a musician. He'd dabbled on guitar/bass for a few weeks each, and was great at programming beats. So his instrument was invariably the microphone (the rest of us chose whatever we felt like being multi-instrumentalists).

The mic would be plugged in to a variety of guitar pedals. Invariably the DF-2 at some stage in the chain, as well as a delay, and maybe phaser and/or flanger. Apart from ad-libbing vocals through the mic, he'd bang various things in the room. One classic session featured a "lighter solo", where he's banging a lighter against a drinking glass for ~2 mins. But the best stuff always happened when he held the mic up to the speakers playing the full instrument mix and then moved it around while twiddling the FX knobs or activating the feedback mode on the DF-2. You'd get lovely effects with all the feedback and delays that you couldn't recreate any other way.

The speakers still work btw.
