The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For today on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to concentrate your creative talents on the prompt; Inversions.

I had no clear idea what I was going to do, just that it would involve some digital mucking about and it turned out to be…interesting.

Would it look strange if flowers and clouds changed places? Or if rivers swapped their traditional home for a more confined life on land? Could you fit a forest inside a church?

The answers to these somewhat unusual questions are now available, should you be the inquisitive sort…

Now let’s see your topsy turvy attempts to meet this week’s challenge…

New EP release.

And here it is, my latest original release on Bandcamp; three huge tunes featuring a mixture of riffing guitars, hard techno and trance-like rhythms, all compiled into an EP called Nova.

Give it a listen for free, buy an individual track or get all three at a discountn price via the player link below.

I’m rather proud of this collection, into which I put quite a lot of time and creative energy, so I hope you find something to entertain you.

Play it loud. ;~}

Saturday remix: Free download.

Hello there, I’ve been having an afternoon of musical creativity and technical shenanigans, resulting in not one, not two, not even three, but four new tracks being added to my page on Bandcamp.

Three of them are completely new and original compositions by yours truly, (about which, more to follow) but for starters I’d like to present you with a gift, free, gratis and without charge, (ok, that’s primarily for copyright reasons, but still…) in the form of my remix of a goth classic; The Cure‘s Carnage Visors.

Carnage Visors was originally conceived as the soundtrack to a film which never saw the light of day, (although you can watch a short clip of it HERE) and was included on some versions of the band’s 1981 album, Faith.

I have mucked about with it before, making an extremely eclectic mashup mix involving several songs by wildly differing artists, which was only partially successful if I’m honest. But this time I spent a considerable amount of time composing an extended piece of original music with which to remix Laughing Bob and friends’ hypnotically gloomy epic.

So here is my enhanced version, which you may download for free or listen to via the embedded player below, entitled rather unimaginatively, Carnage Re-Visor.

Stay tuned for more music news coming soon, don’t touch that dial…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Good morning and welcome to another prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge on this, my nine year anniversary with WordPress. My, how time flies when you’re having fun.

Anyway, this week I’m setting a theme that we’ve had before, one which is fairly open to interpretation; Inversions.

Put your own inimitable spin on that and we’ll all meet back here for a mosey through each others’ photo albums on Monday.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Midweek mix.

For my latest experiment in sound, I have been playing with complex rhythms and vocal samples.

The idea that it is hard to spot rhythmic themes from their component parts until they are all brought together, was the basis for my weekend’s sonic alchemy, which goes some way to explain the initially puzzling intro to this, a track I’m calling Kon-Fusion.

Give it a minute to get going, then see what you think…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

On The Cosmic Photo Challenge today, we’re; On the coast, or at least immediately adjacent to it in my case.

My intention was to be up early and arrive at any one of several nearby beaches before the hoards of newly-freed Grockles descended for the day, but I didn’t get up in time so I went to Wrafton instead.

A small tributary of the river Taw, the river Caen runs through Braunton and Wrafton is where it joins the Taw estuary before flowing out to sea. The tide was out when I visited, boats stranded on the mud in the baking sunshine, but walking along the Tarka Trail to the riverbank was very pleasant nonetheless.

How was your weekend, what did you capture for us from life on the edge..?

Friday night hot mix.

And now something for your Friday night listening pleasure; another extended burst of frenetic electronic sonic experimentation from my expanding Bandcamp catalogue.

This tune was carefully constructed from two completely separate component tracks, each made using my sampler/sequencer app, which I then mixed together on my digital DJ decks to create the multi-layered EDM megamix which is Fraktur.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

For this week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, we’re going getting close to the edge, with the theme; On the coast.

Now I’m aware not all of you may be fortunate enough to reside near the coast of your homeland, or you might not even have a coast, but the river’s edge or the beach of a lake works just as well, or perhaps you have a garden pond…

Anyway, whatever you do, have a great weekend and I’ll see you all on Monday.
