extremely lofi ideas for the poor noisemaker
for those of us who can't run out and buy all the new fx processors
i was visited by a revelation last night. and honestly it isn't very
significant. but it really does sound cool. take microphones (cheapies
don't care about) and push them up against things that move. like
leave them there. listen to the nice beats and loopy things this
produces. if you
do it right, and the microphone is slightly offset each time the machine
through a cycle of motion, the sound loop morphs very slowly into
bits. its pretty much the same as micing machines, but here the
involved in the sound production in a more instrumental fashion.
also. another good one. discovered one night in boston while listening to
ricks very loud after lots of cheap wine.
play minimal techno/beat oriented music very loud in a cluttered room.
wander around and listen closely to all of the objects on your walls,
as they vibrate in different ways. and then (this is the hard part)
attempt to mic
these little vibrations in such a way as to maximize their dynamics and
the actual music's presence on your recording. trying to record
this usually (for me) ends up producing very fluid, natural rhythms that
complex than basic thumpings.
sorry, these ideas are really quite silly and mundane, but i felt like
typing a bit
and therefore decided to subject you all to my ramblings.
