A taste of things to come…
Anyway, I can’t believe I did it…the Trackaday project is officially ‘over’, but its not like I’m going to quit making music (I should totally rep my host, Dreamhost, without whom none of this would have been possible…absolute best web service provider out there). I thought for a little while about killing Noggin, taking real gory pictures and coming up with some elaborate tale and maybe an arch-enemy to take him out, but I didn’t want to alarm anyone who actually knows me as Noggin in my day to day life. I’ll honestly probably keep posting as regularly as I can, but I’ll save the awkward ‘Holy crap can i use yer internet in the next 15 minutes!?!’ cause I was about to forget to post stuff for another time. Not to mention, I’ve still got a backlog that just didn’t see the light yet.
Suffice it to say, I’ve got a totally new set of samples working their way to the mpc (I get a lot of mileage out of an APS file), with the exception of yer standard 808s, 909s, all samples from coming from wax.
Whipped up on the mpc one night after installing the eb16fx card. For the record (very proud of this), my MPC cannot be expanded anymore. Yes, I could add the F-Rom, but that only fits if you don’t have the eb16 card, so my mpc is maxed out as it can get.
The majority entirety of this is using samples off old disco / r&b / jazz records (Ronnie Milsap could nail some drums with his style of dx7-country). The fx card really just makes an appearance for a touch of reverb and I think eq. Don’t sleep on that non-destuctive chop in the 2kxl via velocity->sample start and 16-levels.

Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2011

Take note cause this is probably about as close as I’ll get to recording a Christmas track.
The other day while ripping the wonderful John Fahey Christmas record to computer, I started seeing what I could do with it using the mixer and a delayed (thanks soundcard latency!) version of the signal. These are the short snippets I managed to catch to tape, edited together audacity time-line style.
To clarify, these are live manipulations of the John Fahey record.
Merry Xmas.

Title: That Old Orange Guitar (live remix)
Artist: Noggin
Album: Sober October Demos
Date: 2011

This track isn’t exactly suited for playing out at a bar where everyone is drinking looking to get their groove on. However, one time I played a gig out in the forest of east Texas where I thought I might could pull this one off without being too crazy (thank you Birds and Beats). I came up with this extra bit of beat to add to it though to give it a bit of a special touch for the night.
Here is the live ‘remix’ played live earlier today. If you can, take yourself out to the forest with me and your close friends, real late at night on the hottest night of the year. Take yer shirt off, embrace the dirt, smile at the dichotomy of so many colored lights amidst so many darkened trees, veg out.
MPC (w/ FX card!) straight to Logic.

Hump day humpin for ya, acid style.
I will willingly attribute any awesomeness found in these digital frequency representations to be wholly due to the company of my homey Hswowsh, who was chilling in the Furnace with me as I reached over and hit ‘record’ on the tape deck while preparing for my show later that night.
This is therefore short, unrehearsed, distorted acidy excursions for your mind and your rear end.
Homebuilt 303 (x0x) -> amp sim + mpc all being digitally mixed through a newly refurbished Yamaha DMP-7. Whodathunk that analog -> digital -> analog conversion ala 1986 would sound so sweet?

I don’t normally do this but I felt like being different so here is some basic recording off my computer of a Noel Gallagher tune that I have always felt very close to. One take + one backing vocal take on a cheap guitar.
Protip: This is very close to ‘This Guy’s in Love with You’ by Burt Bacharach.

Some grimy vinyl based ambient tune coming to you courtesy of the Ensoniq EPS. Samples taken from a Jobim record I believe but once again I think it’s safe to say they are flipped enough that one might have a hard time spotting them.
Image is from some video I did for Mom (aka Sleep Whale) during some of their live performances.

Hot off the press! Check the timestamp!
I mean, I am bouncing the track down right now. This thing needs serious editing, there are parts where I have to just stop for a second and gather my thoughts to figure out where the hell everything is…this track is, in it’s entire life span from vinyl->mixdown, maybe 3 hours old.
This is some jam I wanted to do tonight to get that Saturday vibe going, and get some more work in with the EPS. Some vinyl sampling from the Classic Funky Music records, some 909, some 3630, and a dash of incroyable…here’s my french jam in respects to the ‘french comedian’ that guy from good burger does on SNL…he is a lot funnier now ZUT ALORS!!!!
