I was trying to do some piano thing using the midi guitar, but it wasn't really working - sounded like a guitar being played with a piano sound (surprising that...). Thought I'd try it with a pad sound instead. Obviously I'm not getting bogged down arseing around with sinthesisers so I used the nifty little Padspheres- ... heres.html

Add a shitload of effects and automation to wibble and dirty it up a bit, and some incoherent mumbling small vocal parts and there we go; ... -model.mp3

Normal service will be resumed shortly.

Also that time where I collect together recent stuff, give it all a title with the word 'donkey' in it, and call it an 'album'; ... ich-donkey

About time you posted something new. I was having withdrawals. Anyway, very different from what I'm used to hearing from you and totally unexpected. Very creepy vibe to this one. Part of me wishes the vocals were louder and yet there is a part of me that feels they fit the mood. So I'm torn. Anyway, I didn't know you had this kind of stuff in you. Enjoyed the listen.

PS - You gotta start posting more

Lovely. I wish I'd kept my MIDI guitar.

I like that the vocal is indistinct, I think it fills the mood.

Best regards,

Ouf, never replied to this! :oops:

Thanks all for listening and the comments - vocals deliberately low key on this one (rather than the usual not having a f**king clue...)
