I was fiddling about with various bits of Linux audio software and came
up with several hours of recordings into Ardour. If I don't go quite as
crazy with remixes as, say, Moby, then there is probably about 17 months
of music in there. I've picked out one that I feel stands up on its own
without further processing, and uploaded it to my server:
If you have time to download it (it's about 26 minutes long, 21Mbytes)
and listen, I'd appreciate some feedback. I tried using a homebrew
fuzzbox and a guitar amp, but that just made the neighbours bang on the
wall (and they live half a mile further up the farm track).
I consider this track to be in the Techno Reconstructed Yurt genre, with
influences from Vangelis, Pierre Schaeffer and James Bilsland (the
latter using a huge industrial pump to deliver heating oil to the
1300-litre tank at my house). If that is the kind of sound you are into
or you wish to make people think you don't listen to "normal" music,
then I think you will enjoy the track. If you don't or it's a bit too
"experimental" for you then clearly you are an imbecile and you wouldn't
know genuine avant-garde talent if it bit you on the backside.
Enjoy, and I look forward to your feedback. I hope you get as much of a
kick out of hearing it as I got off the anode caps of the power amp
valves in my HF radio transmitter.
