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.

SOULSIK – 6.66 (totuus.006.dl)

Finally we got our hands on SOULSIK’s project 6.66. This 35 minute long composition is approximately five years of work completed. In collaboration with musicians from USA and Sweden, Soulsik has created a grim, oppressive and dark piece of music with a long, evolving arch of drama.

The piece has been performed in public twice and our release 004.dl contains some parts of the composition, but here is the final mastered version with the intro track.

If you are into sample-laden dark ambient, give this one a go. It is a trip, not for the faint hearted.
