Just finished a new piece for the Disquiet Junto. There were quite a few steps in creating this piece. First off I recorded the sound of the cassette recorder by itself. It made an interesting rubbing sound which I decided to use as the rhythmic base. I also recorded the cassette recorded turning on-off, fast-forwarding etc. Then I created a simple modulated guitar drone based on that original rhythm which I afterward recorded onto the cassette recorder. Then I rerecorded the guitar drone onto the computer and mixed it with the cassette recorder sounds creating a kind of fake story of playing back the audio and fast-forwarding.
Kit: Guitar, Mac Pro, Abelton Live 8, Radioshack Microcassette Recorder, Oktava MK-012
