about

Recorded between January 2015 and 2018 using a BEMI Buchla Music Easel and a few different methods of overdubbing. The earliest tracks were overdubbed recordings without sync, then syncing via midi was used. Looping was done on tracks like Olive Moon and Born From Saline by using just a simple digital delay in Reaper and allowing each loop cycle to decay. Lipid Architecture is the latest of the recordings using Loopy on iPad to live record small pieces that could be taken in and out, each layer with its own level of decay. The LP ends with Imitations which is many short recording sessions blended into one another, and includes some audio that is not strictly from the music easel. All other tracks are fairly pure, but my own voice is overlaid quite a bit to emphasize just how organic of an instrument the easel feels to me. I find it charming and bizarre that these recordings are the ones that I chose over a course of roughly five years of playing the easel, and the opening track Nineteen Seventy Two is the first thing I made with it right out of the box. So this is also a catalog of how much fun I was having while still uncovering secrets but omitting a lot of recordings that ended up atonal or alien. It paints a picture instead of very piano-like structures, but with googly eyes peppered on top.
