    essentialise.,
    from 2001.

    it's a terribly saturated/distorto mix, but.....
    i never finished the 3rd splattercell release.
    thought it might tickle someone's innards, though.

    unwitting vocals are by sogyal rinpoché.

    NB, my usual warning:
    if you listen on laptop speakers, you won't hear the "tune".


    ¿enjoy?

    Very nice Dave! Somehow, I can feel things in this piece that I get when listening to Matte. Cool mixing.

    No laptop, but Shure SE530 in ears..... Should suffice, I think.

    I'll try and find you at NAMM to say hi.

    thanks, s.
    it's fair to say that my influence on matte has escaped neither of us;
    i have huge respect for matte that he could find a path that mines his vast talent & skills,
    his remarkable absorptive & insightful qualities, his work-ethic & dedication
    to arrive so clearly at his very own voice:
    that's a tough & rare nut to crack, really..... really.

    ha!
    honestly: the "mixing" is one of the reasons why i didn't release this tune;
    it was one of the spin-offs, musical detritus from the splattercell discs of 1999-2000.
    you have that primary splattercell disc, dude, i hope?
    splattercell ::: oah ???
    i still respect that thing, myself.


    yeah, thanks! since low-end is important to my "sound"
    --- even moreso in an overly saturated mess like this is ---
    i feel that i've always gotta make that disclaimer on the 'net, these days.

    cool! see ya there!
    but, are you gonna be at the "sabian" gig?,
    'cuz i don't think i'll be on the floor much, if at all.....
    ..... working like a dog, right now (& then, still),
    on more than one film-score..... each with their own nasty deadlines.
    akkk!

    ha! relaxing, vintage, sour torn, right?
    ;)
    thanks, anders --- glad you dig it!

    sorta, maybe, mostly, yeah.....

    the guitar part was performed, then sliced post-facto.
    (yes, there is an electric guitar in there.....)
    the keyboard part was performed, from within the computer, on a patch i'd written in Reaktor3.
    the bass was performed on my (then) Nord Lead 2.
    drums came from a Korg Electribe (sampling drum-machine) that i performed/recorded into the Mac, then manually sliced & diced in (the then-called) LogicAudio.
    Rinpoché's parts were sampled from one of his lecture-tapes;
    they were carefully placed, after the keys, bass'n'drums were recorded.
    at the ending/outro,
    the entire mix was re-recorded into the prototype of the Electrix Repeater v1.01;
    i then performed/recorded its "slowing down to digital destruction" as a "punch-in" repacement, as the tune was playing back.
    frankly, i'm a bit shocked that i can remember the process, at all!
    thankfully, it was a simple process, ie: w/minimal parts.

    All I see are used copies floating about Amazon and such. I should just buy one of those, I'm guessin........remember really liking it, but I haven't heard it since I lost it, had to be 86/87 or so.....I think....

    wow, a nice track....
    even sounded good on my 'puter-i'msure the bass was lacking, but best i could do.
    love the crazy drums!!!
    and the great sounds at the end...
    is this a teaser for splattercell III???? that would be most cool 2 look fwd to (or even followup to "prezens"? that would be equally cool....oh well....)
    that was a nice sunday afternoon listen....

    thanks, scott; try listening w/some low end, though!
    a truly horrific mix, i gotta say.
    ha!

    no..... this is old stuff, for real.
    though, i may put some more on my soundclick-site, for ya.

    i'm still thinking about that next release for ecm.....
    still undecided.

    with a "major" project like this, in the middle of this (kinda crazy) hollywood-work that i'm doing?
    oh, yeah:
    i know that this first decision
    --- direction, in utterly interdependent tandem w/concept ---
    often mean waaaaaay much, to me.
    the initial, primary step, in fact.....
    i'm close, though!, so.
    and, i feel very fortunate to have manfred's full creative support, again;
    i think that remains kinda rare.

    Cool tune! It continued to play in my head after it ended, which is always fun...especially when I go listen again and realize how my brain took it in it's own direction.

    Keep 'em coming.
