Created for Ambient On-line’s Image Inspired Dare 24 (January 2018)

Lovely image, combined with the non-stop rain that’s falling since last week, it proved to be a mood setting, inspiring image.
I wanted it dark, darker, and went for a A minor drone.

This is all acoustic, no synths, no samples, every note it’s been performed here in my studio.

I recorded a basic Ukulele track, taken with 3 microphones, positioned differently in the room, two cardioid and one figuer-8 (a ribbon mic)
That allowed to experiment with different microphones and subtle texture and ambient sounds from the simple Uke performance. That combined with a large convolution reverb and three delay buses is all I used as effects.

The “tremolo” ukuleles on the intro and coda are triple tracked, the rest is one performance.
Then I added 12 tracks of bowed upright bases performing different notes of the basic Am and Dm chords, using different microphones and bowing techniques.
The basses run through the delay buses and convolution reverb.

A last track features a single upright bass A note passed through paulstrech plugin.

Acoustic soundscape for Ambient Online’s challenge “Image Inspired Dare 23”

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)

Created by DD in Fuengirola, Spain in response to Ambient Online’s challenge “Image Inspired Dare 23”, 30th December 2017.

Bowed upright basses
Piano
Field Recordings (Wind)
Treated orchestra samples

I wanted to represent in sound the immensely big and the infinitely small miracles in nature, with little simple sounds and the hugeness of Upright basses and wind sound.

Started with a long drone performed on bowed upright bass (three tracks recorded of the same note with different glissandos) then added some of the field recordings Chris Watson did for Soniccoutures some time ago, mostly wind field recordings, treated.
Added a simple acoustic piano playing around minor/major, always simple stuff.
Another track was added, using orchestral samples to build a drone like pad (Albion Coalface).

Wish a happy 2018 to everybody!
cheers
dd
