Mevlevi: Analogue drums and voice
I have recently been exploring a new analogue "modular" system for voice and live music creation. I'm interested in having a number of vocal loops, rhythms and field recordings playing in a free, unquantized way so that each layer can move at its own pace. I often get stuck in "loop hell" and have wanted to develop a creation system that is made up of a variety of analogue instruments and effects each doing their own thing but still with repetitve structures and then only using the computer as a recording device. I'm inspired by the concept of the recording studio as an instrument and this track is my first release of this new project.
I'm also heavly inspired by voodoo and shamanic rituals, mysticism and cosmology and the concept of "music as medicine". Check it out and tell me your thoughts.
