Cloudwalker - Imperfect Machines
A good pair of headphones is recommended…
The idea of the track was to reflect mechanical imperfection.
Stylistically, this track takes a step in a new direction for me; exploring more digital and glitch soundscapes.
The first part of the track is in a 13/16 time signature (its been a blast to play with).
Each note in this section has been manually unquantized to give it an imperfect yet mechanical feel.
The 2nd part is in 9/8, exploring darker and more distorted realms.
The track finishes with a 4/4 dub finale, slightly error-proned, but with a bright outlook.
Philosophically, I suppose this song reflects the error-prone nature of machines/robots…
and ultimately ourselves, as we are also Imperfect Machines.
Benji or Simon: If you see this, I’d like to express my interest in doing a Younger Brother remix.
I have a lot of fun and interesting ideas on how to approach No Safety in Numbers.
I feel that this new track, along with my Magma Dragoon remix, showcase my abilities to do so.
Enjoy, and, as always…this is open to critique, comments, or suggestions.
ps: once twistedsessions is back up, I’ll also get a higher quality stream posted as well.
