Playing With Pure Percussion -- Fascinating Experience

Yesterday, 09:03 AM

I really need to find a place to tell people about new tools I find...anyway here goes.


I am playing with a Fractal Music Generator which outputs MIDI files.  I take this output and do my usual soft synth runs with it, and create multi-track mixes.  Today I created something I cannot stop listening to, but which I will bet all of you real musicians may find a bit boring. Track instruments are: Cinematique's "The Bowl"; a lead crystal bowl played in much the same way as one would play a Tibetan or Quartz Crystal Singing Bowl, Thunder Drums, an Indian Tabla, and of all the out of place in the World Percussion Library things, Sennheiser's DrumMic'a.  I never considered myself capable of doing a pure percussion mix which contained actual drums until now.


I call the track AURAL -- Ambient Thunder.

Viral Logic

Yesterday, 01:23 AM

Here is one of the recent posts to my new BandCamp page, for those who haven't the time to visit the site proper. Give it a listen and tell me what you think, please.  My soundscapes vary in length from about 5 minutes to over 3 hours running time. The longer ones get turned into YouTube videos.

Dynamo Invocation


A tentative step into the world of video. The music was done for Disquiet Junto #124, Derive and Thrive, while the video was assembled from Principles of Electricity, an old educational film now in the public domain.

Lead The World (the new album by Outside Other)


Posted by Outside Other In: Albums

For anyone who might've checked my last album out; http://auralfilms.ba...-system-was-won (and thank you if you did!), my next one is up on my Bandcamp page for your perusal. 'Lead The World' represents a "fusion of ambient music, post-hippy psychedelia and the half-memories of a 1970s childhood". Free to download if you should be so interested!

Simon Slator's "Forward": The Video


I've only made one video so far - a longform video to go with a piece called Forward, released on Aural Films a couple of months ago. It chronicles the journey of Roald Amundsen and his team in their historic expedition to the geographic South Pole, using images that slowly fade into eachother (a la Eno's Thursday Afternoon). With old-timey dust and grain, of course :)

My Most Popular Soundscape To Date


When I created this feature-length soundscape video, it was in a vague attempt to compete with all of the current crop of YouTubers who try to outdo each other on runtime in sound based videos.  My problem is that I make true videos, and most of the people I am competing with in this genre are simply pasting a static image into their video editor and stretching the viewing time of that image to match the runtime of the sound.


Which method do you prefer?  Any responses welcome!

Tip of the day.


So I did not know there to start this, so it will go here... lets all share some tips & tricks :D


When doing sound-design, I seem to be getting the “best” or most interesting results by simply recording all my work on say a synth patch.. when the patch is done, I have, besides a potentially useful synth-patch. a recording of the entire process.. this is where I find approximately 80% of my sound-design. I have a folder in my sample-library entitled “Sampling Archive” containing countless hours of recordings, many of them “useless” until one starts to think of them as the stone inside which, small nuggets of gem may be hiding. From time to time, I pull out a recording, fairly random, and start my explorations.
This is a very good way of working for me because it takes away pressure from the actual sound-design, because even if the patch/sound turn out to be uninspiring in the end, I have lets say, 40 minutes of recording that may be very diverse, and often times I find sonic treasures in places I had no idea where absolutely lovely when I made it, because I was so focused on other things (technical aspects, anticipations, taste, intention).

This is a way of introducing some “controlled chaos” into the process, and I do admit that I am a far better sound-designer by chance, then I could ever be when I let my intellect control the process.
