Title: Broken Fences
Artist: Trypset and Noggin
Album: Trypnog
Date: 2012

This is a track Trypset and I jammed out one February night, which I subsequently re-tracked, bounced to tape, yadda yadda yadda, named, and uploaded.
The name of this track comes from a couple inspirations:
– DJ Broken Fences is a name I always saw in San Marcos, and maybe the best DJ name I’ve ever heard (Trypset is a SM native)
– the recently mended broken fence in my back yard (yard party 2012 is on yall)
– sounds good, man
Alternate title is ‘The Ballad of Broken Fences’.
This is a mellow, trip hop, illbient, blunted style courtesy the mpc2000xl and some korg synth engine.
Recorded in Bryan, TX, Feb 2012.

Date: 2003

More Brit-pop-avec-idm with Robsi. This one was pretty much done entirely in Reason, and I think we did most of it in one day.
Main thing about this is the vocoder…its like voices vocoded with delayed versions of themselves, guitar, drums, synths, the vocoder patches in this were like a cat’s cradle of patch cables (my favorite part about reason).
ps. and dig that we were doing the halftime drums before the brits were even doing it…well it was an accent back then whereas its like the norm nowadays.

Title: Lost In
Artist: Fade
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2000
Original
Acoustic
This is one of the first collaborations with a bonafide vocalist and myself on programming. Robsi had the lyrics ready and wanted to hit that Kid A vibe that was kicking around pretty good at the time. Well we did our own take, and were both pretty happy with how it came out. A couple remixes followed.
We produced the majority of this in Buzz, but I believe vocals were tracked out in Vegas or Nuendo, and the acoustic remix was totally in whichever program that was. We took Buzz integration to the next level with this one, what with the guitars and vox and 808s etc.
Bonus for yall, acoustic remix is included.

Had a lot of fun going into the TAMU recording studio with Ilya to lay this one down. I had made some drum beats and we brought those in, played em as backing tracks, then he jammed the wurly while I played the guitar. We had a great time.
A few months later, here was my remix.
I’ve got all the tracks + his version somewhere, but Ilya, if yer out there and you aint crashed em, hit me up with yer version!

The saintly son of Sunnybrook comes back again in record time with this an ‘edit’ of probably the most divergent track from the release. Lovin the vocals and just the whole idea of hearing something I have spent so much time with take on a life of it’s own outside of my habitat.
Muchas gracias!

Title: Seep Lul
Artist: SOMA + Noggin
Album: Classic Trash
Date: 1998

I’m dedicating this week to collaborations.
One of the most good-vibesin’ bit of collaborating I did was with Matt aka SOMA. I can’t recall the details on how we became aware of each other, but it probably had something to do with rotorkopf and definitely had a lot to do with Buzz. He asked me to collaborate on a track, and as I was just learning the intricacies of amen junglism, I used this as a good excuse to get some more chopping under my belt. His melodies were so inspiring, and the sound fx track was something pretty new to me. I also really dug the tempo changes, even though I don’t think I had ever (knowingly) gone into that territory.
This is about as classic Buzz as it gets…some pluck string, primi fun squelching away, tick-style tracker madness and chiptune pad samples.
We would go on to do a couple more songs together, amongst remixing each others’ work whenever the need arose.

Remix of my boy Ilya’s sound-design experiment “Doppler Beats”, which maybe I can encourage him to explain in detail in the comments?
He sent me this pretty awesome recording of some sounds, and I thought, these should be turned into a jam. I was also experimenting a lot with the ‘hardware’ sampler in Reason, so I used it as an excuse to get down and dirty like I hadna before. As such, buzz is pretty absent from this recording.

Title: New York
Artist: Avec Mére
Album: As yet Unknown
Date: 2006

An amazingly talented good friend of mine named Jordan recorded this and sent it to me either while I was in Austin or while I was in limbo / homeless between Austin and California. On a whim, I asked him to send the tracks and let me try to add a piano, which I did using my piano in Bryan (slightly in a honky tonk tuning, no?). I do not consider myself a piano player, but I do consider myself a musician and I will play whatever you throw at me. Having said that, don’t throw pianos at me right now. Put this one together by ear, then grabbed the only mic I had (thanks again Thoams) and recorded this while my dad ate beans in the kitchen and my mom scoured the internet for travel deals (she was really good at that). If you listen close enough, my cat, The Baron Archimedes Von Resonator Al-Stimpson de Chenonceau even has a part in this.
Thank you Jordan for being such an inspiration.
ps. there is another version of this somewhere that has a crazy glitched out guitar solo I’ll try to find and upload later.

Title: Robofish / Guitar
Artist: Rik and Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Release Date: 2001

The tracks I made with Rikard were always some of my favorites. He had such a fresh perspective on everything that was going on, and he really pulled my own fumbling style up into a more professional level.
This track was one we worked on back and forth, from Texas to Sweden, from Sweden to Texas, back and forth for a good month or so. It was an homage to some robotic fish I got for my room that I was fascinated with. I believe there is some guitar in here too, as I was just starting to experiment with manipulating my acoustic guitar playing in Buzz.
