More fun with feedback.

Geese Flyover Broadmoor 28 August 2009

Yesterday's entry brought an instrumental that used a field recording in the background. This is more straightforward.

Four geese flew overhead at Broadmoor Audubon Sanctuary in Natick MA. One of them can be heard calling out.

I like the diffuse reverberation in the nearby woods. Reminds me of a cow recording a couple of years back.

Backyard Flicker

Backyard Flicker

Couple of bits of fun feedback sampled into a Yamaha VSS-30 equal the warbly tones and the slapback percussion.

A recording of last night's backyard sounds becomes the background, with occasional pitch shifting to bring about the varispeed of epistemological doubt.

pinned down again

This is a pin I homebrewed circa 1982 to commemorate a fave post-punk band, Orange Juice.

The fine construction/New World craftsmanship is easily seen . . .

Their "Breakfast Time" (b-side to "Simply Thrilled Honey"), their work in general and that of other bands on Postcard Records was some influence on my own more rusticated inventions:

Instrumental for Plug

Something in the mood of another Orange Juice song, "In A Nutshell", might be heard in these:

Be Here Soon

A Love For All The Ages
