Without Thinking it Through  a mash piece featuring Roger, Jim, Paul M, James

Its a Burden (a capella) by Chris Vaisvil

Slide for More (9 edo for strings, brass, and woodwinds) is off theme by Chris Vaisvil

Come one, come all!

It's time to think of sounds and music for an aural toolbox with an extra long event!

The optional theme is to create sounds expressly with an ear towards being mashed.

      • Bill says:

        thanks Chris… more likely a Zappa filter to the Stravinsky but I hear that too… indeed–  just stuff like we do… I might work tonite on a new video or some watercolors again.   mmmm well I did a watercolor and might focus on it or … what not.  

        • Jim Goodin says:

          I agree with Chris that I hear Igor in there but I also hear Fats Waller at times Bill! Well done and nice to hear you expressing on piano of late.  I know you indicated playing a long time and good to hear this 'voice'.

          • Bill says:

            There is the arpeggiator within the 8 midi channels I counterpoint in parallel to. That would be the semi regular beated parts in a kind of inline sequence programming as I play,..  but from Ben and again from Jim these comments are going to make me play the piano patch in the korg with the midi into The korg from the supernova ll much more often,.

            I know we mixed out some song mashes between week sampling with a as you like basis for new mashups but is there a way to keep the comments posting per song from listenings whenever it's getting listened to or is that something too complicated for it to be of value or worthwhile??  Just you know keeping the conversation on songs going but ending the new song posting to the event or next event.???

    Guitar Quartet: Four Parts Fretless

    Chris and everyone good to connect at our regular time and good theme idea.  I don't know that either these pieces will mash so well as they are pretty full but always open.  These are two pieces done earlier in the week Sunday evening and Monday.  Sunday I got very inspired by the idea of doing a project centered around writing for a guitar quartet akin conceptually to a string quartet.  To a degree also along the lines of the League of Craftees.  Both pieces had a germ of an intial idea which I recorded as first track then improvised 3 more trax live to the original one at time, all on fretless guitar so intonation drifts.  I have taken this further after these pieces and for first time in a long time composed first, scored and I'll probably record that this weekend and post.

    Frankie Goes Home

    Sad story to this – my daughter's grayhound puppy ran out into traffic and was killed last week.  The order of the pieces in this mash were determined by an analysis of the above image.  I replaced one of the three tracks by doubling another – so this is sort of on-theme.

    this is the link to the mix tentatively called "Frankie's little life". A sad but majestic kind of piece I did it on the iPad and android phone uploaded to the google drive and downloaded onto the iPad mixed it and uploaded again to the link sorry I didn't convert to MP3 format,..maybe I can do that too..  in an edit 

    the iPad doesn't seem to like MP3 format and the android is smaller..

    but I got it to SoundCloud as well

      • Bill says:

        That's Chris's guitar from the song before your post,..  mixed with your song. The name of the mash is derived from both sources,,,,  obviously I hope…  sorry for the loss sometimes pets are more special to their people than anything else ,..

      • Bill says:

        It was the android that could download and upload the two songs then the iPad that could mix them after downloading them from the google drive sorry it's kinda confusing to explain what I did but then once mixed they were then uploaded to the google drive as a mix..  mashing with out the desktop use is quite strange to put together…  last night I also made some new presets for the animoog 

    • Jim Goodin says:

      Shane like a lot particularly hanging ending.  You and Jer Fairbanks use this technique really well.   Oriignally posted this above in wrong place, replacing now.

  4. STEVE LAYTON says:

    This is going to be a challenge, as my left ear is almost completely shut down with ear wax! I don't have an appointment to clean it out until Monday, so we'll see how the mashes turn out 😉

  5. Chris Vaisvil says:

    a dirge for Steve – I went to the Salvation Army store looking for a box for an electronics project – what I found was a new Dean 8 string guitar for less than half price! At $229… how can one walk away from that? Active pickups and all!

    • Jim Goodin says:

      Chris you find all the 'finds'.  That's pretty great.  First piece makes great use of the low in a Black Sabbat kind of way!  Second nicely melachony.

    Taters

    'Cause Taters are made for mashing! A few (ok, quite a few) flubs in there, but perhaps someone will take pity on it.

     Time of Electronic Color

    " The Time of Electronic Color" is my music setting of Vincent Priblo Artwork's photo, "Where Does time Go ?" –  acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. The setting is in one movement  of two sections – measured time  and then unmeasured time where pitches,durations and  rests were generated by uniform probabilities via Kyma. The instrumentation was via Motif and Reason. My composed counterpoint was controlled by Kyma and Record.

    Flatbush Avenue

    Prospect Park

    Two loops, one quiet(ish), one not. "Prospect Park" actually reuses the background loops from last week, but I left them alone for a bit and then did some treated harmonica improv over it. "Flatbush Avenue" is a treated drum loop with three distorted harp loops on top. 

    Hoping to do some mashing tomorrow!

      • STEVE LAYTON says:

        I had to tune some of your notes around, and then just ran you through a unison/detune generator for a little voice thickening, but that was about it. Amazing that about 95% of what you and Kavin played matched up so well!

        • James Bailey says:

          Only some? 😀 I was trying to think of what the result brought to mind, then it occurred to me: the original Mellotron flute sound (not the updated Ian McDonald one). The result sure is impressive. I sometimes wish I could play like that, but at the same time am afraid that it might take me away from the "happy accidents" realm I now occupy. Kavin's guitar is really lovely.

    • Bill says:

      Good work,, morning…thanks for the include..  I will have to listen here to this stuff all week I have endless data entry to do so the sound track is setup with everyone that posted this weekend and Saturdays post are just forming..nice 

  9. Ken Ficara says:

    Listening to everyone's contributions today and I was wondering if there's a reason that the jukebox player shows the track title, but not the artist. I always want to know *who* is playing as well as *what* is playing.

    FWIW, I do WP development (among other things) for a living so I'd be happy to contribute some time if I can help. 

    • STEVE LAYTON says:

      I think the player generates whatever it does automatically & I'm not sure there's any settings that are tweakable. J.C. found it so he'd know better than me, though.

    • J.C. Combs says:

      Always on the lookout for a better player.  This one was actually created by MIT and is great for being HTML5, so plays on all platforms.  Once the playlist is finalized it's easier to match up the artist to the work.  That said, definitely would like a more informative player.

    dis(Grace)

    some lapsteel with delay loops and noise at end.  Witnessed two punkish youths last night without regard toss glass bottle in to the street from elevation.  Thankfully nobody passing but I was angry and powerless to break their disregard and was a disgrace.

    Forever Chasing Swallows

    This is Paul's beautiful elegy for his daughter's dog, treated and combined with a treated excerpt of Kavin's "Swallows and Bells"), plus a simple rhythm loop and harmonica improv.

    Piano Dream

    I've made a jillion mash-ups, and so many of them have been super cool, but only very, very few have approached the coolness of this one. It's pretty hard to describe, but the layering around ben's piano is almost like stuff passing through his mind while he was just letting his fingers wander the keys.
