don't mind me, just having a listen, haven't listened to
these in years

the pimlico wino ~ actually featuring me on [sampled] vocals.
then there's a preset patch on the VS that El-P used
somewhere, possibly on that little yellow prophet reboot i
know he has

the pimlico unmeat ~ i had sampled some french-canadian guy
talking in, well, french, about lady gaga's meat dress --
current topic that day -- and i've mapped Q1 on the MPC1000
to pitch and i'm just fussing with it, and suddenly i'm
getting english lyrics out of it

...said you need DRUGS

[something] oooh

get a-way-high, get a moveon, then freakout, ahahaha


then we're cutting into flying into the windows xp bliss.jpg
field, flying with are cows with no legs. then back into the
beat

it _is_ drugs. fillerup fillerup

unmeat, on me, etc.

that i think i made this in like 45 minutes and i clearly
remember that being my subjective experience at the time,
cows and all

that Q2 was sample start, that i was also doing this live
while doing everything else, the truncated gunshot noises
from the casios shooting the cows. but as someone said, NO
ONE CARES, and then, not sure if it was same person, NEVER
EXPLAIN ANYTHING and then, i guess, at least it's
consistent, he refused to explain why one should never
explain anything

i've always said: given that a system can either be
consistent or complete... since i'm inconsistent, i must be
complete.

there was a study recently that weed makes you think you're
more creative but you aren't

control over a thread here. it's not a dj shadow private
press either

it'd make sense that you're... i dunno, zappa-esque; drugs
are for losers as you pound down scads of coffee and
chain-smoke zigs until suddenly dying of prostate cancer at
50 because you refuse to doctor, because you fucking know
better, fuck those fuckers

i was blasting bong rips all day when i was 23... now i am
in my late 30's, and it's been a good few years since i had
a moment where i thought: "Hey, I haven't smoked in like two
weeks" and it was not something i even set out to do; didn't
give a shit about abstaining. i was simply too busy

but then, to your point: it is, indeed, incredibly possible
to make a track you think is great while stoned; realize
it's shit the next day. or to get super into music you
didn't write, that you later realize is shit the next day.
then there's the maddening zone where... fuck, this is good,
but it makes no sense unless you're stoned. and a proper man
should be nervous there because that seems quite easy to
confuse with the stuff you realize is shit the next day

pimlico unmeat though, something else, i was probably +++
writing that

i have a weirdly genuine question: does tony danza, canadian
socialist boy scout, speak french? because, like, i don't. i
know like, JAMBOU AU FROMAGE, ham and cheese. i went on a
high school trip to france and i got caught up in a mental
awkward loop trying to order "french fries" in english and
the cook, in his eyes, he knew exactly what i was dealing
with, laughed heartily, said, perfect english, i got you
man

but i figure pimlico unmeat, it may not be possible to hear
it properly if you do speak french, because it's too
distracting

pareidolia. seeing forms in the clouds. that i got into a
headspace with the Q1-2 sliders where, i dunno, a feedback
loop between what i'm hearing in the clouds, parameter
changes, that essentially amplifies it out of misheard
psychedelic nonsense into... something that may not work at
all if you speak french; i rather like that. they'd be quite
offended i'm sure

great stuff, i didnt pick up on the french till the very end
of the track, thought it was distorted vocal samples or
something, really nice

yes, yes, that is exactly what i wanted. that i was going
industrial robot with pitch and sample start, then at the
end.... i just sort of obnoxiously sweep it up into chipmunk
and you're all "oh hey it's french" and this was not by
accident.

4real thx. it's really rare i actually hear back, like "oh
hey it worked"

LAZY_TITLE ~ tony danza will be pleased to know the
intensely dissociative sample spinner was something i
crafted in reaktor. i ran reaktor on its own dedicated
laptop, then i mapped the novation remote to the knobs, then
i closed the laptop lid and that was actually enough for it
to play nice with the real hardware.

listening to the wino track, good stuff, there's a nice
tension to it and i like the slightly off-kilter plod of the
drums

reaktor sample spinner sorry he actually said i don’t give

“i don’t give a fuck about epic’s reaktor sample
spinner.” that’s what he said

LAZY_TITLE ~ i wanted to do the coin sky bonus level
from super mario 3, and so i did

general sense of falling continually [you know how mario 3
does that for some, er, cinematic sequences].

i am happy with the piano riff, it makes you think of mario
3 without actually cribbing from it, really. it's the casio,
and it's also those anthro clouds with faces mario 3 has.

then the ef303 -- it's 303 mode is very nasal -- through
some reverb, dootdattadoot, punching in a spiral pattern
like someone working on a four-function calculator.

some mangled sample noise kind of... shaped around the other
things, but also to add a sense of falling. general tactical
sense of reverb throughout

there's the suction-creating warped sample, as you're
falling, falling, the ef-303 spiraling off somewhere far
below, then the piano riff kicks in and you're floating down
past those clouds, which are moving at a slightly different
rate

i should do another like this sometime. i could make it much
more dynamic now

just a strange... well, why am i doing that?

i'm not even listening to cloud party (previous post) and
thinking of the ef303 way down below and i find myself...
mouselooking around? and what? i usually don't... do
that...

...and i realized, i was playing lots of CS:Source when i
wrote that, and some people on the watmm IRC channel were
getting me to try CS:Surf and i think that really had
something to do with how i wrote it!

satvia dub ~ i did post this on soundclot and discuss it
before, but here it is again; you can have it in 320k or
whatnot with none of their shit. that i do need to get an
album of these together

story, anyways: in a bit of a mood one day and i essentially
walk up to the gear, turn the computer on, start turning the
gear on, start the computer recording as soon as it's done,
only some of the gear on, then recorded this. it is a stock
yamaha dx200 pattern, but... well, to say i impart some
motion to it is like saying a stallion has a cock. just
rather furiously... muting and unmuting the four parts (1
DX7, 3x sample drum trax) and turn all. the. knobs
and then i've the mixer's internal FX out run back into
channel 1 so i can feed it back on myself, and... you know,
turn all. the. EQ. etc along with jobbing the mixer's fx
itself, and... fuck... midway through, i have to run around
the table to turn on the TC electrix warp factory and it was
so excruciating to me because i wanted it right. now. and
this is dfjkgdf so when i got back around the right side of
the table i was even more enthusiastic about all the things.
good day
