For those of you that don’t know, I’ve been putting up quite a lot of free tracks as downloads on the Twelve website recently. I’ve now compiled these 12 tracks onto a CD (and a Free download).
It’s a jewel case CD and is only £5.00
There some great music on this CD ranging from Kraftwerk Computer Love melodic grooves to minimalist influenced loops and arpeggios.
Also, please pledge for The Submarine Broadcasting’s compilation vinyl KLANG on Kickstarter (featuring six by seven). He’s nearly halfway there now to making this happen. Please help if you can. He’s put a new video up featuring all of the bands on the record. You can have a look and pledge by clicking HERE.
In the meantime, please head over and grab yourself this free Twelve album, I’m sure there will be something on it for you to enjoy.
Thanks everyone. CHRIS
I managed to make this track today despite having man flu.
I took that picture of the Nottingham Trent University building the other day whilst walking past. It’s called the Newton building, I only ever went in there to pick up my grant cheque (before student loans) when I was a student.
Some guy jumped off it in my second year. Because I remember this and because it’s a dark fascist looking building, I find it quite foreboding.
Made with a Moog and Novation Synth for drums and Dave Smith Mopho analogue Synth.
I really like this tune. It’s in two halves really. I used a Novation analogue synth (lent to me by my mate Neil), they have a certain bubbly kind of sound which I love. I’m obsessed with making songs feel like the outro to Computer Love by Kraftwerk.
This album is made up of three albums I made about 4 or 5 years ago called Panik, Tragik and Magik. As I remember I used only a Moog synth with an 8 track recorder in my front room to make this music. However, listening back to some of the tracks I’m thinking I might be wrong as I can hear a Sequential Circuits 600 and an Oberheim Filter sound on some of the tracks and I know I borrowed these synths from a friend around that time for a brief period. Also, I may have used my Akai MPC to sequence the odd beat!
Anyway, the idea was to create some soundtrack music for a cold war spy film (which obviously doesn’t exist!). Listen to these tracks loud in a dark room sitting in the middle of the speakers. Sometimes these old analogue synths actually sound like they are alive.
