Musical Stylings...

by Chris Randall

Although I don't actually make music to pay the rent any more (and thank all the various Gods and wildland færies and whatever for that!) it is still rather important to my personal well-being and understanding of the world to keep my feet wet. I find people that make gear but don't release records to be, well, you know.

To that end, I recorded a full EP, or more of an extended EP, or maybe a short stack LP... eh, fuck it... a pile of songs for Detroit Underground™, which will be released shortly, with remixes from Basek and Proem. I'll talk about that more when it's out.

In the meantime, I have merrily continued to make tracks, like I do. So these two tracks, while being "put out" before the DU™ release, were in fact recorded after it was done. In both cases, everything went through the Euro. If you have any specific questions about a part, I'll be happy to answer to the best of my abilities. But suffice to say both were done with my normal techniques, which I've talked about at length on the AI YouTube channel.

Listen to "windows - east berlin" by chris randall.

Listen to "piece_01" by chris randall.

If you click/tap the name of each track, you'll be taken to the Octave page, where you can download it if you so desire.

Good stuff! Is the vocal(?) track in "piece_01" one of your field recordings?

I don't honestly remember where that came from. It was in my Noizes/Voices folder, which traditionally contains things I recorded myself, but as to whether I recorded it or it came from somewhere else, I can't say.

The unedited samples is a foreign language of some sort, so chances are good I grabbed a street performer somewhere. Chances are equally good I just nabbed it off of a YouTube video or Freesound.

Really like the tracks and looking forward to the upcoming release. :)
