The tentacle octology slithers on as Part 5 rears its ugly head. Partly dedicated to the potential end-of-the-world “predicted” by the Mayan calendar the track is my audio depiction of before, during and after.
Tentacle 5 (Trecena)
Original drums recorded on vdrums, but I really didn’t like the way they sounded (i’ve been having problems getting a good recording from them and trying not to blame my playing), so I used a loop from the kaossilator and hacked it up to be in 5/4 time. All remaining recording from the Korg Microstation excluding the final piano section.
Unbelievably its now been a year since I started playing piano so whilst I should be trying to demonstrate my new found skills, instead I recorded this track. A few simple chords, but I like the vibe to it. It’s a “Korg-fest” as everything here is done on the Kaossilator and Microstation. It actually started of from a bit of a mess around on the Kaossilater, so as usual, there was no plan and the track just sort of evolved. I really should try and write before starting to record!
Here is another very short 1 bar loop done on the Kaossilator. Its so quick and easy to create short parts on it in an almost random fashion, and i quite like the intensity of this one.
