Back in December, DJ Dag-Nab-It and I had the pleasure of being asked to provide the ambiance at a wedding here in town. The criteria was unique – keep it classy and make it feel like post-WWII.
Well we had a blast doing this one. Kind of a beautiful set up to the actual event as well – Dag-Nab-It scored some great records from Uncle “Smokey” Al Hanson (thanks Uncle Al), and I found the main record that was requested literally on the last dig I went on.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Herb Alpert
Henry Mancini
Ella Fitzgerald
Antonio Carlos Jobim
Various Pops groups

I owe yall a country show, don’t I? Apologies for not posting this on time, but I was pressed to get out of the country and I had other things I wanted to post before the year was up.
The first 2/5 of the show was recorded improperly as just a mic in the studio – so while it was an interesting glimpse into what it sounds like in the studio, it was only interesting for a few seconds before it just got old hearing me and Chuck and StevO shoot the bull about donuts and kolaches etc.
Managed to work in some holiday tunes there towards the end.

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.

Well, I broke. I did a little christmas set after Hank Williams in part B. Call it more a ‘holiday’ set as I gotta represent with that Chanukah track, and the Dean Martin, I didn’t really listen to the words, but it didn’t seem particularly Christmas oriented.
Anyway, we had a good time this am, and I’m happy to share this, the last Morning Groove of the year, with yall.

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: Chillfest (rough draft)
Artist: Noggin
Album: Fall Tape
Date: 2011

Another one off the recently bounced Fall Tape. This path was formed by placing one stone at a time.
EPS sampling Logic sounds, sequenced via mpc, sequence recorded to logic, re-sequenced back to eps, tracked to logic in whole song and chunk sections (for looping), sent to cassette tape, bounced back to pc, cut up / mastered briefly mostly to raise cassette output, disseminated on the trackaday faces.
I love the interplay of different machines from different time periods because it brings up interesting techniques that might not have been explored otherwise. Ever notice a hardware samplist’s tendency to raise both notes of a interval equally? That’s the machine talking as much as the musician (this led to a lot of ‘jazzy’ hip hop and electro-lounge).
TX on the bass.
