long harsh noise track

Post by gjwatson » Sat Oct 20, 2018 8:02 pm

hey guys,

it'd be cool if you all checked out my track "2am central time". i'd love to get some thoughts or feedback.
it's long, slow, and harsh. get fucked to it.

The crunchy textures between 08:30 and 15:30 are very nice!

"I absolutely do not support this" - my girlfriend

"I don't think I could listen to this again" - some girl in one of my classes

"not as long as some other noise albums" - someone in an online forum
:lol:
add this one:

"i knew it would suck before i listened"
:lol:

really tho, its not really harsh, its attempted wall noise? static drone?

the core of the "harsh noise" thing seems to contain dynamical changes, which is where you lack

it tries to be atmospheric, i find myself wanting to know more about the background, the source

heres the deal, what are you trying to do to your audience?

"i felt like i needed moar drugs to enjoy this"

ouch.

somewhere in between wall and static.
it is dynamically static and doesn't have sudden changes. that's kind of the point.
the recording is just traffic on a rainy night. the recording goes through various processes to distort it.
then it returns to its original state.

if you're looking for noise that's more active and energetic, this is not it.
this is just something that changes slowly and eventually evolves to new textures.
minimal, yes. that's the point.

shit, now you ruined it, its the subtle not knowing that draws the listener in, now you dispel the mystery with your betrayal

well, not looking for anything, that would imply deficit, i am definitely abundant, but i noticed your appeal for feedback so here we are

dont get me wrong, its not bad, you just have better drugs than i do

There is a history of manipulated 'field recordings'
in which the 'method' is made quite clear - so
that shouldnt necessarily undermine the work.
You might want to listen to these pieces if you haven't
already.


Alvin Lucier I am sitting in a room




Steve Reich - It's gonna rain - the first variation runs through the phases and back...




I think it can be problematic if the work falls between different genres.
Not impossible, but one 'theme' can cancel out the other.

The above work by being minimal and seeing / hearing what evolves..... which imo is incredible - literally.!

depends on intention, and your lucier example is hardly a field recording

im saying that some mystique draws the listener in, maybe that is the desciption, maybe he names the track "that one night i did that thing behind a dumpster" and people listen real close :D

There is again the genre of 'deep listening' -
Pauline Oliveros et al. And wandelweiser music..
where the nature of the work - draws the listener in..

The scare quotes were there - my point was manipulation of a
previously recorded piece...

I am a big fan of those pieces, actually! I quite enjoy Reich's tape music (and his other music as well).
I have only recently come across the Lucier, but I think it's incredible.

Actually an old washing machine working while it was raining heavily in São Paulo (I miss you, shithole). This is my thread now, I'm hijackin' it.

Jliat you are making obvious points and that makes you look very silly.
A silly old man fighting windmills.
Very silly.
And very old.

hey no slagging the Quixotics like that...
Don Quixote is no Jliat
that's an insufferable brutal insult to all Quixotes
far worse that telling them Andáte a la re puta madre que te re parió/La re-puta que te parió!!!
:P
