Dare 26 Stuff

From an image of a sound of an image of a sound's spectrum, or something like that. It's easy to lose count. This is on Freesound already, but sometimes I like to blog my favourite processings.

More 2008 missing files

Here is me attempting to make something like more conventional music in 2008. Sounds like synths in Red Sunglasses, but it's actually bitmaps converted to sound in Cool Edit then layered at different pitches and times then played through a guitar amp. They're all out of time, out of tune, but to hell with it anyway. Part of me likes them and another doesn't. Déjà Vu contains Half-Life 2 voices, I used to play that game far too much and felt quite sad when those beautiful women were killed in battles against the Combine. Yep, I'm quite sad like that. I've uploaded these here before, then deleted them, so here they are again. Pretty much the same description applies to the other two here. Sounds better with headphones.

Chance Piano (again)

A re upload of these and a brief description. Made some time 2004 by appending a bunch of waves (created by myself) in Cool Edit 2.1. Then I applied different processes and converted the results to midi with intelliscore 4. Played with mda piano in Sonar 2 (or was it 3? can't remember) with a bit of midi editing. The sound isn't great, I didn't know that much about eq and dsp in general back then. Also, there's a terrible whining noise on some tracks, oh well. I do like them anyway. I have tried to replicate this process a few times since, but with no interesting results. So, I guess it's done, and really, once is enough.

House cleaning and what have ya...

...well, kind of. Decided to separate words and pictures etc to my other blog. I guess most people who visit here, do so to hear sounds, and don't want a torrent of bullshit to wade through. So, sticking with the original plan. Also, other house cleaning. The hard drives. Decided to stop dual booting with Linux, it's getting far too messy and complicated doing separate back ups, so I'm going back to Windows permanently. I actually had to toss a penny, (one I found some weeks ago) because I'm so indecisive. The outcome was what I wanted anyway. Now I just have to decide between XP and W7, probably the latter as I'm in the mood for change and moving forwards. Finally! Besides, it's going on an advanced format drive, so best to go with a modern OS. Linux is a great idea, but I really don't have much use for it. So, hopefully I'll get back into making some new sounds for this blog soon.
