TC5​.​004 - static weight of the world / noise

by cinchel / nystada



cinchel - After many years recording droney guitar loops and layering them in Ableton I decided to focus on a different way to create music. I found a used monome64 controller and this looping/effect patch called “The Party Van” and set out to make single-take, improv pieces. The idea would be that I do almost no other post processing. My contribution to this split is from this process. I came home on the evening of the 28th of August and recorded some improvisation with an mbira and the looping effects of The Party Van. I cheated a bit and fed the whole final take through heaps of reverb, but did no other layering or editing. It was fun to spend a year forcing myself to make music in a new way, it opening my creativity and worked different parts of my brain that had been mildly dormant.

the gear i used:
mbira, the party van ( ), Valhalla Shimmer VST ( ), monome 64, some other effects...

nystada - Filled with inspiration from visiting a studio in Finland and Alva Noto talks on youtube nystada focused on sound manipulation in summer 2019. Using as less sound sources as possible but creating a huge impact was the goal. Every single track of the "noise" sessions wouldn´t have been possible without each of the others. The allover flow of the sessions combined with experiences made during the production were enormously important in developing the tracks.
