The beating heart of industry is now quantized - we’ve already asked who watches the watchers, but who will it be that builds the builders? Featuring a variety of synthesized sounds, pulsing both low and high with a robotic lead in between.

Repeated themes (repeated themes) belie complexity (belie complexity) - higher order (high order) induces simplicity (induces simplicity). Featuring trumpet and bass synthesized via the open source software Helm.

Low Tide

She sells sea shells by the sea side. She sees spare shells surface as the sea subsides. She snags sea shells, swiftly setting them aside. Queen of sea shells, shall the tide abide?

Featuring recordings of the sea organ in Zadar, Croatia - a series of pipes powered by the waves - and other atmospheric ambience centered around harp plucks.

Spider Power

There once was a spider named Steve, who kept his realm free and clean and clear of other bugs. Steve wandered in a manner that seemed not unlike Brownian motion, except when observed on the scale of hours. Over that time, the noise accumulated into a signal - clear direction and purpose. In Memoriam: Steve.

Like Steve, rock often seems like noise but leads to signal. As such, this track features a rock quartet - rhythm guitar with heavy power chords, lead with a bit of sweet echo, bass with a nice picked attack, and drums with excellent drumminess.

Updraft

This piece is an homage to the works of Miyazaki, which often feature flight as a central theme. Soaring through the air is a quintessentially fantastical feat, imagined in this track as a peaceful exploration of the ups and downs of our atmosphere. Featuring flute, harp, and string orchestra, and written in 34.

Memory Leak Blues

Bandcamp Loudr Vimeo Gumroad Amazon Music iTunes Google Play Spotify
It’s tough enough having a good memory as a human, but at least we come with built-in heuristics to make things up as needed. For our burgeoning robotic brethren, memory is more deterministic - and this is both a boon and a bane. In this track, synthesized instruments ranging from drums and guitar to keyboard and strings provide a blues backing while a confusedly expressive formant-shaped lead explores what it is to forget.
