Title: The Atchison Affair
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2000

I’m calling this style Final Fantasy Epic Breakbeat Growliness.
Named after a prof I had in school who I just didn’t get along with at all. Somehow, this piece grew to be over 10 minutes long. Heavy breaks and lots of growling synths.
Not really a Wednesday track, but I’m trying to get it so December (the last month!!!) is just killers every day.
All Buzz.

Date: 1997

Well I was young and trying my damndest to make some music on our POS computer. Working with nothing but the random alert sounds Bobby had given me for this ancient macintosh and a pretty basic sound editor, this cut up proto-rave tune manifested itself.
This is probably my very first attempt at production entirely based in the computer.

So let this serve as a preview / taste of what is to come.

Soaring, melodic, sophomoric, string-breaks. This is all Jeskola Buzz from when I was just starting out with this more electronic production. I felt real classy I after I spit this one out at 16. At 9 minutes long, this was an early epic.
Diggin on the primi-fun and the newfound favorite (at the time), Whitenoise’s Delta. Glide function on a synthesizer WOW.

This show came together like jalapenos and jelly (that’s a good thing if you aint know).
Rocked the cd players a bit more than usual, and I think I’m designating ‘When the Levee Breaks’ mild-juggle as my pledge drive anthem.

We were really good in Nueget / Megaspore Mothercell about getting an idea and then taking it to completion. We didn’t really have a song per se when we started here, but we sure did at the end of it. It’s definitely got that Sonic Youth garage vibe we were heading towards. This is just Steve and I while we were in-between bassists (which was quite often).
Props Steve.
And as a bonus, here’s the overdub version of White Rainbow complete with guitar shreds.

This is another song written in 2009 very late at night in a very wet, very dark, mildly heated Anacortes upstairs room. Pretty sure I was up waiting for the meteor shower, or I had just come back from it. I think I wrote the majority of mawL on this same night.
Finally recorded last winter in the Sunnybrook garage.
Yer basic MPC-trip-tech-to-tape traversal.

Here’s some very Noggin-in-college, hifi Buuzage in a trip hop stylee. Listening back to this, I actually realise it came out right when I was getting into really being able to wield Buzz well, and put a lot of different technique into it.
I dare you to spot the Backstreet Boys sample.
Come and get me.
