WOODEN TOTEM – MX2488 (totuus.012.dl)

 

totuus.012.dlWOODEN TOTEM has created a piece of music using a mixing console as their main instrument. The most of this track was made with a broken vintage Carvin MX2488 mixing desk. No internal feedback loops were created. By overdriving the preamps and routing the signal inside the desk, WOODEN TOTEM achieved a playable, adjustable oscillation. By adding digital reverb and delay, WOODEN TOTEM was able to achieve a spaceous sound. Further recordings were done using Korg Volcabeats and Korg Electribe ER-1 through delay machines. Very interesting soundscape, screams from darkness; during the passage the MX2488 is crying for help, hear its pain as it is leaving this world.

During this recording, a mixing desk was severely damaged and left for decay outside in the rain.

Have a miserable November.
