When Robots Cry In Buenos Aires: bandoneon & electronica

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

Created for:
Disquiet Junto Project 0331: Born Under a Bad Sine
What does it sound like when a robot has the blues?

Can’t quite tell for other cities, but believe me: this is the kind of music robots like to listen to in my hometown when they get sad and low.
Buenos Aires is a melancholic city, and robots are not spared.

I won’t be surprised if this track becomes a hit among robots, my vacuum cleaner got weird while I was mixing this earlier this morning.
Me too, mind…

Bandoneon performed by Olivier Manoury, the rest by D.D.

Created in Paris, France
Friday 4th May 2018.

Childhood memories and music boxes….

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

Created for:
Disquiet Junto Project 0328: Sonic Pentimento
That word is “pentimento,” which is defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “a reappearance in a painting of an original drawn or painted element which was eventually painted over by the artist.” Familiarize yourself with the term.
Think about how the term “pentimento” can be borrowed from painting and applied to sound.

Recently I could get my hands on a collection of music boxes my mother had and that I adored when I was a little child. I have that stuff in my place now, along with a big clock with a gorgeous carillon with the “Big Ben” melody.

For this junto I sampled those objects from the past and composed a melody reminiscent of the music-box melancholic type of melody, performed on a nice freebie for Kontakt called “W Music Bow”

I mixed all that with some oneiric soundscapes and played around the faders to bring the music from the past back and forth.

Disquiet Junto project, my experimental contributions April 2018

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

Sine waveforms from these synths:
z3Ta
Emu Vintage Keys
Ultra Analog by AAS

Vinyl noise sampled from my personal collection.

Created on a rush, March 31st 2018 in Paris for:
Disquiet Junto Project 0326: Wave Turntable
The challenge: Compose a short piece of music using only sine waves and the surface sounds of vinyl played on a turntable. Those two sources are inspirations for the Clay/Fischer exhibit.

CCCXXVII was created for Disquiet Junto Project 0327: Time Zoned
Engage with the number 327. Compose a piece of music with three separate and distinct through-lines. Think of each of the three lines as an individual voice. The important thing is that the three through-lines occur in your composition simultaneously. One voice should be in 3/4 time. One should be in 2/4 time. And one should be in 7/4 time.

Thanks Marc, Ethan and Nate for an excellent, inspiring challenge.

I created 3 grooves:

Upright basses(x3 bowed) playing a 2/4 tango groove
DX7 playing my favourite 7/4 gimmick (I used it all over the place since 1988)
Lead Saw synth playing in ¾

Each accompanied by a drum loop using the same sounds but in the matching time signature.

I played separately over a click track you can hear (a string sample and an arpeggiator)

Then I did a mash up of the 3 to create polyphony. It is complex, progressive and a bit chaotic but was a lot of fun.

It goes like this:

7/4
2/4
3/4
3/4 + 2/4
3/4 + 7/4
7/4 + 4/4
7/4 + 4/4 + 3/4

Cheers
