Disquiet Junto 0339 Rude Mechanicals

The Disquiet Junto this week asks participants to realise the genre Rude Mechanical.

I've revisited a video that Youtube took down earlier this year, presumably because it's too rude.

My most popular Disquiet video was a remixed smack three years ago, see Three Of A Kind.

naviarhaiku234 – when the cicadas cease

It wasn't the voice of the pine that spoke to me when I saw the haiku shared by Naviar Records this week, rather a piece of River Red Gum.

My friend Hape Kiddle of Bidgee Studio gave it to me to develop a work for the Fragments exhibition in Narrandera next month.

First thing I did was tap it and found a variety of tones.

Second thing I did was atached a contact microphone and record a couple of takes of taps.

The result here is two takes layered together with some processing like delay.

naviarhaiku231 – men, women

The haiku last week reminded me of a dance track I hadn't finished.

It was a track in need of a video though.

There was a sandwich filmed and waiting to be edited.

That took a bit longer than planned.

Here's a start on my next toasted sandwich video.

Naviarhaiku230 – To the end of the field

The haiku shared by Naviar Records this week reminded me of an autumnal sunset I'd filmed, which can be seen in the video above.

The music is a variation on this chord progression recently recorded.

Disquiet Junto 0335 Alone Time

The Disquiet Junto this week asks for music for being held on the telephone.

Sometime this afternoon while pondering how it might sound I remembered a sketch started for the recent Junto responding to lottery numbers.

I’d listened to it looped for a long time without getting an idea how to resolve it.

It seemed perfect for waiting on the phone.

Originally there was a bass part but I thought that wouldn’t translate to the narrow bandwidth of telecommunications.

It features an organ I’ve used a lot in recent months, as well as percussion and drums.
