EP Finished - All 8 Tracks Here

Post by ratface1987 » Tue Mar 12, 2013 2:04 pm

I'm living in Paris for school and have been putting together a number of tracks made with DS10 that have been inspired by the city I live in. I am planning at least 8 tracks but want to add more. I am going to perform each one live, in a video, and then prepare a live performance of all the performances chained together using a Kaoss Pad to help with the transitions as I switch tracks or DS's.

So this is track 1: Electric Circus.

Enjoy!



PS: I am going to add each video to this thread, so if you'd like to hear the rest, this is where to find them. :)

Here is track 2. Been very busy with school and work, but as promised, the Electric Circus EP continues. This one is called LovinU. Not entirely pleased with the camera angle, but it's the best I can do. Enjoy!

Track 3 is here. It is called DryDry. I was trying to capture the rhythm of the coin-op laundry mat (laverie libre service). So imagine dryers spinning and a mom ignoring her kids climbing on the machines and voilà Paris.

PS: This is my first time using song mode, so I didn't make a video to go with it, since there wasn't anything to watch. 99 patterns is too short! :shock:

And thanks for the kind comments.

I'm just listening to the first video for the first time now and it sounds great! I've never been good at performing, more of a composer than a musician, but you make it look easy.

Here track 4, entitled "Brochant" which is a street I live next to. I'm working on another track about another street I live next to. I don't have anything in the works for the actual street I live on. It just isn't as inspiring... yet. Please enjoy!

And track 5 - "Ensemble".

Thanks again for all the comments so far. :)

Track 6! This one is called "Eternally". Not as much about a specific part of Paris, but a kind of journal entry for how I was feeling lately. Enjoy!

Here is track 7 entitled "Snow". It's about how it snowed suddenly in March, which seemed off for the season...

Finally got a recording of the final track that I'm pleased with. This is number 8 called "Guy Môquet" which is another road I live near.



Now it's time to prep the Bandcamp release and the live performance.

Thanks for all the comments and listens!

Thanks! I've loved working with DS10 because it gets me to create patches that I otherwise wouldn't have thought of with any other synth.
