The Bellais family from France (DAvid, CAmille, LUcile et Félix) is traveling around the world in a converted old fire truck for two years. They’ve used a few of my tracks in their video episodes, and it’s an absolute kick to follow along and hear my songs pop up every so often. Follow them here:

02:50 night sky dead letter office [disquiet0065-pianoverlay]

PROCESS:
Start point: 02:50
Duration: 02:40
Added drums and guitar as the two new elements.
All the talk of space in the original track inspired me to break out the ebow for the 1st time in a while.
To get more interstellar, I applied plate reverb, reverse delay and phaser to guitars at different points.

RIG:
Jolie (Peekamoose customized Gibson ES-335 dot reissue), Vox AC-15, Ibanez Screamer TS808, TC-Electronic Flashback delay looper, Ebow, Line-6 Pod-XT effect/amp modeller, Motu 828 mk2, Sony Acid 7.0

PROJECT:
This week’s project’s theme is asynchronous collaboration — in other words, making things together separately. We will make new compositions based on short, discrete, randomly assigned segments of a single, 60-minute piano composition. Collectively these will form a longer, collaborative suite.

Step 1: You will be making a piece of music by adding new sounds to a pre-existing track. You can download that pre-existing track, an original piano composition by Jared Brickman, here:

One_hello_world – Every-day-were-dying-and-outer

Step 2: When you go to the following URL, at kenzak.com, you will be assigned, immediately, a specific section of the longer Brickman piece. This kenzak.com URL will randomly pull up two pieces of information. The first piece of information is the start point of your segment. The second is the length of your segment (which will be between 1 and 4 minutes):

kenzak.com/disquiet/disquiet0065-pianoverlay.html

Step 3: Extract your assigned segment from the pre-existing track.

Step 4: Compose a new piece of music by adding elements to the pre-existing track. You can add anything you choose, with the exception of voice. Limit yourself to two additional elements. The original track should be audible throughout your new composition.
