The Disquiet Junto this week involved filtering a loop as a way to develop a composition. I tried a couple of responses and have posted videos for both below.
My first attempt was gated and reverberated, shaping a composition of increasing snippets from the loop. It worked well with the bell-like chimes from a recording made at an art-making session on the north coast of NSW last weekend.
The video shows Mike and Keith tapping steel canisters to produce the tones.
My second attempt concentrated on using a filter to shape the frequencies of the recording, sliding from low to high to low again as reverb feedback increases. This produced a fade in, out, in and out again while the reverb has a descending feedback.
The Junto this week asked for a soundtrack to accompany reading text from a year ago. This is a bit of rushed recording as I've been parenting solo over the weekend.
I looked at my ShowcaseJase blog to see what I'd been writing about and found a piece on the Richardson family sword.
The bass riff is one I've been jamming on and occasionally recording since the funeral for my cousin Chris, mentioned in this piece. I think about him often while making music as it's an activity he encouraged, buying me my first bass guitar.
Leeton Shire Major Dooley Library won an award a couple of years ago for their Saturday morning story program. When I read the Junto this week I wanted to share one of their readings.
There was a small audience this week but I recognised one of the kids and know the librarian Sandra, who I hope will excuse me recording her without seeking permission.
The short track loops parts of the recording to create drums and drones and a vocal loop.
