[SPAM] An attempt at musique concrete (kind of)

Lately I've been more interested in sampling things and
creating music based around stacking them - I did it first
with this dance track, 小鬼, and have followed it
up with a more epic piece, axis (bold as knights)

feedback welcome for the experiments.

i like the intro to (char *A, char *B) but then i am getting
bored because by 3min it's getting interesting again and i
am a busy man and i wanted this at 2min. other than that
pacing gripe, nice acid, good job marlowe. the arp part
drifting out needs a bit more of an acid edge, layer some
more 303 over it beeewauWaWawuWaaau. overall, lovely track

axis ~ nice breathing motion, psychedelic rockshrooms. a
pair of curtains drifting past each other. but then it is
really kind of wander-y. have you forgotten?

the first track is great! really changes gear halfway
through. axis is nice too, got a kinda ninja tune vibe

I liked Axis. I second EpicMegatrax and belb's comments;

Also reminded of Ninja Tune, but also a specific release I
can't remember the name of (vinyl is in the loft) with a
Japanese guy with a Hawaiian shirt on the cover.

I like the drones in it. Nice to hear 'real instrument'
sounding drones rather than just a wailing VCO for once.

Only criticism, also agree with the pacing; towards the end
of the first third, it felt it was taking too long to
introduce the next element.

Thanks for the feeback guys, I've always struggled with
pacing I'm the first to admit that - I usually get lost in a
loop and then come up with new ideas and forget to go back
and edit things tighter - I should remember the famous movie
making adage, "few movies would lose anything by having
thirty minutes taken out" (or something)
