New Machinedrum-only ambient piece 4 Years, 3 Months ago
Hi All,

Just finished recording a new ambient piece - This is recorded and treated guitars and bass, transferred to the MD UW and played on the Machinedrum only.

Really something different and a big departure for me. Wanted to see if it works, and I think it does.
I wonder how I could break out of the rather confined set of samples and really mangle these sounds in real time to become completely unlike the source material.

Anyway -- let me know what you think!

Here it is: https://soundcloud.com/encym/schimmer

Enjoy!

^Agree, lovely piece. Been meaning to try this approach for awhile and this is great motivation.

Thanks!
Do it - it's a very uplifting experience.
Particularly if you take your pre-composed "piece" apart by tweaking parameters, possibly with the locks - but that's not even necessary.
The piece was recorded with no patterns stored at all, just playing like a piano.

I have to be honest, I didn't know what to expect. A machinedrum only ambient track!? Really... how would this work, shy of making atonal, #ucking frightening landscapes... but alas, this was awesome, and very musical. Quite cool.
Cheers,
Mike
