Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away

Well here we are at the end of another month and it seems that I've recorded quite a bit of unbridled noise for the "391 & the Army of Astraea's" BandCamp hosted Give-Away program.

This particular upload will be the first of in a series of three-parts, and is based on kind of an elaborate endeavor that included some experimental forays into two mobile music creation apps I was previously unfamiliar with - Soundcamp and Thumb Jam. While I originally thought I might just review the functionality of these sort of apps as a new feature on the Gauntlet, I instead ended up creating a rather lengthy piece (well over twenty minutes) with their assistance, and then edited it down into three shorter, and seemingly divergent parts, timing out at four, six and just under seven minutes in length.

I've titled the entire piece "Veritas", and as politics always does seem to find a way to creep into art in some fashion, the second section does relay some basic "truths" relating to our current culture war through speech samples of former US president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Today's upload, Part One, features Soundcamp's digital reel-to-reel setup, which I used to simulate an old school "head echo" experiment that features manipulated feedback and human voice (my own). It is essentially the "intro" section of the piece.

As always, enjoy, and don't forget to check back for more releases in this series. Till next time.
