Formerly Sine Drone 1-1-2011

Sunday, 01 January 2011

This drone was previously a 59 Hz tone. Obviously it was not a 100% pure sine wave. It was transformed into this drone using nothing but high & low pass filters and equalizer. No additive processes (effects) used aside from volume.

Mystified remix of Electret Quintet track

Monday, 09 September 2010

In a timely occurrence, and in contrast to the new full length remix by Fosel of tracks from the Electret Quintet (mentioned in the previous post), Mystified has proffered a new remix of one track from the same collection. The new remix is very different in feel from the Fosel remixes, but still within the same sort of ambient / minimal techno realm as the original release.

Embedded below is the new remix by Mystified, along with the original for comparison purposes:

A Surprise Set of Remixes from Fosel

Wednesday, 06 June 2010

This afternoon, I received a surprise email from someone I don’t know and had never up ’till now heard of, with the subject line “remixed your tracks”. This is what the email linked to:

My downloadable tracks are released under a Creative Commons license which says, basically, that as long as you are not making money off of it, and give me credit, you can sample and appropriate anything I do to your heart’s jolly content. It’s just that this happens quite infrequently!

The tracks by the New Mexico artist Fosel are really stupendous. The title of the work is “problem of universals: c. reider remixes“, it’s an atmospheric reworking of some tracks from the Electret Quintet blended with some ambient guitar noises from Long Defeat.

Listen to them and/or download them and THEN listen to them here:

I am the DJ I yam what I yam.
Don’t turn around no, don’t turn around.

Uh. Here’s a mix I did of some minimal techno, and industrial, and other stuff, some of which informed my Electret Quintet project. I hope you like it.

Electret Quintet 5 Released today!

I hope you’ll spend a little of what remains of this decade, and a lot of the new one with these sounds! My major project of the last two years is now complete and released, with the fifth and final part of the Electret Quintet seeing release on the last day of the Zeroes!

For these five sets of five recordings each, I used a single analogue drumcomputer for all of the sounds. Here’s a track using only the Roland TR-606 from Electret Quintet 4:

Mention in Disquiet Downstream

Friday, 12 December 2009

I was pleased to read today a nice write up of one of my tracks from the Electret Quintet 4 that I have posted on my SoundCloud page… Marc Weidenbaum writes:

…his sole instrument is an early analog drum machine, one called the TR-606, which was manufactured by the Roland corporation in the early 1980s. Reider milks the machine for all it is worth, and what’s remarkable about it isn’t just that he’s taken a tool of percussion and turned it into a tool for space music — all wandering echoes and hallucinated canyons — but how much, to fans of his other work, it is immediately of a piece with things he’s made on far different instruments on other sonic journeys he’s taken.

Electret Quintet 4

Sunday, 11 November 2009

The penultimate in this series of five free mp3 releases is out now. The Electret Quintet is an experimental series of recordings completed during the year 2008, using a single analogue drum machine to experiment with rhythmic and arhythmic sound fields, ending up with various shades of minimal-techno, industrial, noise and ambient.

As it stands, all of the releases are rather challenging in various respects, and each release has its own characteristic strengths and weaknesses… the first release was explosive and unfocussed, the second reeled back the excesses of the first and stands quiet and reflective, the third is my favorite, with quite well-developed tracks and a very difficult centerpiece…

Number four is quite strange, containing one of the more melodious tracks in the series, and then stretching out into several very long abstractions. It’s the longest release so far, at 45 minutes long.

I hope you like it!
