Music Project.

Jesse stopped by on Wednesday with a pretty intense musical setup. He’s got a keyboard that he can hook up to his computer and generate absurdly funky sounds. The user adjustability is off the charts. He started by showing me how he could create some intense drum beats. The software is very high quality so the sounds are diverse and deep.

Meanwhile, I got my guitar and hooked it up to my Tonelab which can generate some weird guitar sounds. We started by jamming with a few themes. Our first theme was circus. I used my guitar and effects to create a really chipper twangy sound. Jesse laid down a beat and worked with a organesque something or other. Then we jammed for probably 20 minutes working with the Tetris theme. I turned on an octave chorus, and Jesse pulled up a program that is specifically designed to generate Nintendo style sounds. Oh man. It was hilarious.

We ended the night by recording this 17 second… thing. It’s dark and short, but was fun to record. My favorite parts are the drums rhythm at 13 seconds and the ominous ‘ring mod’ guitar that sounds here and there throughout the sound clip.

Check it out!
