Some experimentations for the Junto challenge, Winter 2020

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

Some tracks , experimentations and essays I contributed to the weekly junto challenges during January, February and March 2020:

 

let’s call this a mess, a collage or an impromtu montage.
It was fun.

Members of the choir, in order of appearance:

@zeromeaning
Analog
@analoc
@vonna-wolf
@bassling-1
@Northwoods
@Howthenightcame
@ikjoyce
@michel-banabila
@paulchristophrose
Myself

I added orchestral percussions and several synths

Challenge:
Create a piece of choral music from the provided samples. You are encouraged to make music that feels “human,” that feels like it is simply a lot of people singing at once. However, of course, the end result is up to you; you can and should mix, mash, and create as you please.


Twenty steps to the moon.
I usually take the assignment quite seriously, the challenge is the main point for me.
So excuse me to take a free interpretation this week.
The “theme” comes from the upcoming [20+20](www.instagram.com/20x20_project/) mini album I did for @audio-obscura-music ‘s netlabel. I used a rejected variation (the 21st one) from the 20 variations, 20 seconds each, I recorded
I expanded it using a project I’ve been working on these past few days, whose working title coincidentally was “Lunar Soundscape”. I used the 20 sec tracks and the Lunar tracks (not in the same key or tempo, but nobody cares, right?) and combined and moved them all to make this 2 minute lunar vignette.
You’ll hear:
Synthesizers
Ronroco
Fretless Bass
Music Box
Muted upright piano

Disquiet Junto Project 0420: Luna Tick
The Assignment: Make music that proceeds according to the phases of the moon, in celebration of Lunar New Year.


Upright piano, synthesizers.
Recorded @ Paris and Buenos Aires over the years…
Created for:
**Disquiet Junto Project 0428: Urban Moss**
*Step 1: Consider how many concert posters have spent time on an old telephone pole before being torn down or succumbing to the elements. Think about the wear on the wood, the rust on the vestigial staples, as time has passed.
*Step 2: Record a short piece of music that pays tribute to the accumulated echoes of past concerts promoted here over the years.*

New single released: Copernicus’ Bad Idea (featuring Miguel Yanover)

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)
New experimental-instrumental single released today:

Copernicus’ Bad Idea

(experimental fusion)

 

 

Choose your service (download or streaming): https://awal.lnk.to/G9WQ9V43

 

-The beat is 7/4 with a weird “drum kit” consisted of Argentina’s Bombo Leguero ad finger snaps.
-There’s no clear melody but instead some melodic fragments that never quite repeat and develop but make a “mantra” like melodic pastiche that, well, sticks to you.
-Structure is also quite weird, particularly if you follow the melodies.
-Instrumentation is ridiculous:

Ukulele Bass (Kala U-Bass)
Two Ukuleles
Marimba
Tongue Drum
Harmonica
Lead analog synth
Balafon (x2)

Special guest Miguel Yanover: Soprano sax.
