This started as a house track and turned into an epic techno choir ensemble. Eleven of the instruments are tuned to the exact same semi setting to get the harmonious phantom voices.
No more than sixteen measures are the same. This one changes that much. For the most part, I used only one pattern. It's moved up or down in octave and some that way layered over and askew of each other. Two drum patterns are broken into their individual parts and the decay & tune are animated. I had fun with this one. A lot of fun. Now I understand differently about Orbital always having wordless female vocals.
Enjoy my weirdness.
Strange.. Totally strange.. And magnetising at the same time..
(any psychist in the room ??)
Let's be serious.. At the beginning, I was only finding it interesting.. But as I was listening, I felt I liked it more and more..
Maybe I would have added a few bells.??
Maybe not.. They are implicitly present, in fact..
Good work.. It's not only an intereting process, it remains musical.. At no time, you've lost yourself in pure experimentation.. All through the (big) length of the (song.??) you stay in touch with musicality..
(Listening to the rest of your soundcloud.. Your music is terribly organic..
Reminds me of Zanov.. You probably would enjoy his works.. Not only because his name starts like yours.. But there's something, in the way you build your music, which is rather similar.. Moving textures, ,volving structures.. Most of them sound 1970's "cosmic music", but he sometimes, very often, is like noone..
At the time when a friend of mine had made a sampler tape for me, and sure I listened to it more than once, the words that come to my mind were "déferlantes", "lames de fond".. Google translates "breakings", "ground swells".. You know, those waves which are not on the surface, but in the depth of the sea, and are so powerful.. Your music gave me the same feeling..)

We should collaborate sometime that would be cool I'm from Texas too man I really like your stuff
The Future Sound of London are my all-time favorite electronic musicians. Been listening to them since Lifeforms came out in 92. They are without a doubt the reason for my organic sound & ability to make whichever style of music I feel like. I go with whatever sounds good enough to make me feel at the moment I'm in. Been an artist my entire life. Now, with sounds as my paints,, I consider myself a painter of time.
Where from in Tejas?
My next song has turned into the flipside of this one's glee.
Sounds like KMFDM or Combichrist to me. Stay tuned.
Word. There's a few Lone Stars in here. Off the top of my head. Radio Rev is from San Antonio, Ode to the Machine is from Ft. Worth, and I from Wichita Falls.
I've not collaborated with anyone in quite a while. Facebook memories popped up today with a track EKT & I did called Scatterbrain. He's in Germany and it helped the collab that he works overnights. It's pretty dammned good too. I work very fast because one sound sets another off in my mind. So, before yet another sound messes up in my head, I quickly use the initial sound. It may sound odd. But that's how I've made everything you've heard of mine.
Add me on the Facespace if you want. I prefer to use messenger & dropbox over tying up forum space. Look up Andy Zamora. Heh-heh. I'm the one listed as being from West Philadelphia and currently living in Bel Aire.
Okay will do man
I like this - wouldn't be out of place as a soundtrack for David Lynch's Dune.
Lifeforms is amazing, isn't it? I've been listening to it since 92 as well and it still surprises me sometimes.
Hell yeah that's a cool ass movie
Hell yeah kmfdm I haven't heard that in a bit and like Ministry is s***
My bad I meant to say the s***
I fucking LOVE Ministry enough to piss good ole boy yokels off by calling it real Texas red dirt music. Jourgenson is, for me, second to only Reznor as a techno-industrial industrial-techno god. Clint Mansell is a close third. They bridge genres by not giving a shit about using just a guitar, bass, and drums. They use what sounds right when they need it.
"Stronger than reason. Stronger than lies. The only truth I know, is the look in you eyes."
Yeah I hear you Trent Reznor's the man bro
Fear Factory's pretty cool too they're a little heavier though
I'm more fond of the electronic side of industrial. Don't think I won't play some Morbid Angel or Crowbar on a Sunday morning though.
LOL no s*** I love both those bands, the guy from crowbar always looks like he's taking a fat s*** when he singing
I'm definitely more fond of the electronic side myself
