The Comfort Zone

I've decided to be finished with The Comfort Zone, to follow Implications as part two of an aggressively unfashionable instrumental suite:
  1. Implications
  2. The Comfort Zone

These started as a writing exercise to aid focus on “just the notes”: no percussion, only sampled instruments (no endless knob twiddling), and only production that would have been vaguely plausible without computers (but allowing for some synths and a digital delay).

Mandatory release — January 16–19

An embryonic snippet from the past couple of days. I started using the Mandala for the first time, before getting distracted with other instruments.

From the “WTF?” Vaults, Part 1

Some abandoned experiments that I still enjoy in their own way.

1. A menacing mass and spring simulation gone wrong, from 2004.

2. An early experiment with “granular vector spaces” from 2007.

3. A doubly-abandoned piece: the droning noises are from an old experiment related to the first one, which I ran across in 2009 and used in this beginning of a song.
