about

[note: feel free to put "0" in for download price. only reason i don't have this set to "free download" is you need to leave the payment option in for the album to be streamable on the bandcamp app]

i wanted to record an album that sounded unfamiliar to me. so i chose some constraints that would prevent me from getting too connected.

this set was sequenced from solo, single-take hardware jams recorded to two-track with minimal editing and post-processing, mostly between 18-24 sept 2016. everything was mashed out live into sequencers with nothing prepared apart from a few rhythms.

so there's a bunch of mistakes and clipping and leakage and analog grunge printed in. you can maybe sense the terror in the second half of some of these tracks as i desperately hang on.

raw tracks available on request, dan_at_remaincalm.org
