    Mostly bass. Mostly ambient. Mostly improvised on the spot. Enjoy. Or not.

    Almost no keys at all. Bubo just has one drum loop; Celebrity Perfume has one pad (only one note), and that clay pot loop; For Clara is just bass, all performed live in one take.

    The pictures on the site are the inside of an old Roland GR77B bass synth. Which, ironically, I can't use since I don't have the proper pickup to drive it.

  13. I like it, although I think the low mids are too strong. My laptop speakers rattled a little until I turned them down, and a check with decent headphones confirmed my findings. Just my opinion though.
     
  14. Wow man, I really dig this. For Clara is beautiful. Nice work.

    This isn't stuff that I'm planning on selling - feel free to download all you want from the Burnt Infant website. Maybe once I start taking all this out live (which is in the works), I will possibly burn a few CDs and start selling some. To be honest, this is more about allowing myself a way to make music without having to think about it too much; no structure, no production, no forthought. I guess some of the overall sound may suffer a bit because of it (sorry about those speakers), but I'm trying to spend as little time as possible mixing, tweaking, etc... Unlike my "real" music, which takes me forever and still doesn't sound great.

    Awesome work! This reminds me of a friend of mine who's big into making avant garde ambient material kinda like this. His stage name is Bobby Vomit (he made himself vomit on stage once).
     
  17. I dig it.

    Seems to have a sort of Lustmord kinda feel to it(from when he did the album with the Melvins at least).
