Some experimentations for the Junto challenge, May-June 2019

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

Bagatelle numero 1 et variations (disquiet0380)

I had the theme and 10 variations, 11 tracks total to recycle.

I ended up sharing 3 of those in the past:
the main theme for guitar and piano (Daniel-diaz – Bagatelle-numero-1)
And two trumpet led variations :
rhodes, trumpet and electronica(danieldiaz.bandcamp.com/track/bagatelle-numero-11)
and trumpets and brass section( open.spotify.com/track/5j5wzAFNnW…RYTAOZW_LZFhNwsw)

For this junto I decided to gather in one track four remixes of the unreleased variations, to make a sort of suite around this sensitive Em theme.
Variation:
1- Piano, guitar, strings
2- Piano, guitar, melodica
3- Piano, guitar, upright basses (pizz), bass clarinet, horn.
4- Piano, guitar, upright bass (pizz),accordion, melodica.

The Long Sleep (black noise) – disquiet0386

Photo by Yuriy Garnaev
Performed by DD in Paris, May 2019.
Stratocaster guitar, vibraphone, bass, reverbs and filters

Disquiet Junto Project 0386: New Colors
The Assignment: Out with the old white noise, in with the new.

I’m infatuated with convolution reverbs, the more unreal and outrageously long the better, and I use it as background noise quite a lot, particularly infinite reverbs and very long ones, passed thorough wah wah or other extreme filters to make them sing and get some sort of pitch.

In this track (a new version of a 2017 track, performed on electric piano and bells back then) I used my Stratocaster electric guitar and vibraphone. The background is mostly 25-40sec reverbs passed through filters and wahwah. That’s my “black noise” and besides the track could be good as a lullaby for any dark, depressive and cold blooded child.

New ambient single released today: GALAXIO

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

New ambient (melodic) single just released today:

GALAXIO:

Streaming, choose your service:

https://awal.lnk.to/galaxio

Spotify:

NO SYNTHESISERS USED.
I played the same note (La – A) or a basic power chord (A-E-A)on several instruments:
Upright piano
Acoustic guitar (nylon string)
Ukuleles (2)
Charangos (2)
Upright bass
Electric bass guitar (2)

Then I played some harmonic sparks on my bass guitar and some random hi pitch notes on the piano to create some still+-moving harmonic content. (Mostly around Am/Amaj)

The sustained drones are reverbs of many “long-infinite decay” types.
I added some field recordings (mountain forests, etc)

 

This is a reworked version of the track Autumn Mountains Breathing that I shared via Soundcloud a while ago.
