New Song — Codename Mystic


Here’s another song. I haven’t bothered naming it yet, so I’ll just release it under the codename I’ve been using. The song again features Ableton’s Collision instrument for the bells in the beginning. It was partly inspired by the upbeat and airy sound of Aphex Twin’s Flim, which is one of my favorite tracks of all time. The audio cutting techniques that I used were probably a result of my deep love for Machine Drum’s music, which has some of the sweetest audio slicing that I’ve ever heard. Machine Drum is to audio as a teppanyaki chef is to an onion tower.

  • It started off Aerisy (very good thing), but took a really nice turn. I can sense the influences you cited in the track, but you definitely made it your own (like, I didn’t say ‘oh this sounds like Flim’, but I can sense the auditory vestiges). I dig this track. I do appreciate the solid pocket the beat falls in (as you’ve heard me complain about Richard D. James’ ‘asyncopation’), and sprinklin’ the Machine Drum influences took it to the next level (as far as unnamed music goes). Thanks for not going Venetian Snares with it haha! Keep ‘em comin’…

    Wow. Awesome stuff. Love the layering. Love the sequencing. I downloaded it.

  • I’m waiting…when will you share more music?

  • Heh, I’ve been meaning to for a long time now, but I’ve just been starting songs without finishing them. :)

    Gotta get back on track (puntended).
