Same here. Eager to see what you do here.

(...and thinking how I can apply this idea or a similar one myself in some way....)

This is really cool. I was doing something similar where I looped an open chord with a lofi Zvex thing and then played “melodies” with it by running it through an old Digitech pitchshifter and changing the intervals. It sounded like a weird organ on a Cara Bozulich record or something. Yours rocks way more. Stoked to hear the whole thing.

No vocals. Some of the tracks have a drum loop on them, but it's really simple stuff like - snare, hh, bass, hh, repeat.

Some of the cooler stuff happened when I started using the edit cuts to create a rhythm. The loop obviously creates a click sound when it returns to the edit point.

Now, if I cut a loop and then re-taped in the same spot, it shouldn't make a click. But if I cut a loop several times and switched up the order, it would create a click on each of those edits, even if it's the same note. And then, if I switched up the length of those cut sections, I could start to create a rhythm from the clicks happening at different intervals in the loop. I could then record a drone on this new, reconstructed loop that wouldn't have the same edit click points, so engaging/disengaging those two tracks would introduce or mask that rhythm feel.

If that makes sense.

The first song on this is available to stream or download on Soundcloud.

Loop 19

And we've got a pre-order which is really more just like a "order it today and you'll get it in about two weeks".

Drone Loops EP 01.

Enjoy, tell your friends, that kind of stuff.

Thanks,

This is great. I used to try stuff like this with my little Casio sampler. Perhaps obvious, but it wasn't nearly as successful.
