I made a track for school named : Maxtor Hitachi -> http://zebox.com/plugexpert/
The name comes from the 2 harddisks that died on me in 2005. My idea for the assignment was to have the analogue rhythems sync up with sampled broke harddisk sound. In the end I only used the ticking harddisk for 3 intro seconds and made the composition entirely on my computer.
any words would be nice
Me and my gf just had the most amazing you-should-have-been-there-experience combining your piece of art there with regular commercials on norwegian TV… The transitions were spot on, the mood of “happy” commercials were totally altered, ketchup pured on a hotdog became blood, I mean… Totally surreal, totally amazing!!!
Thanx, man. That was awesome!
the beginning sounds to me more like an old ugly scanner or sth. hard to believe that these crunches came from a maxtor…
nice hitech sounding spheres. but at 3:05 it became more interesting (for me).
the ending is funny but not my taste its sounds like there were a few gnats around my head (i heard it with phones). otherwise it nice to listen these little tonal morphing phases.
overall: sweet bouncy hardrive adventure w/ that certain plugexpert style/swing/groove/mood
I listened to this on repeat numerous times and noticed something different each and everytime. Hell I listened to this song, Data Play, and 1 Minute Stereotype everytime I fire up winamp.
I am amazed at the talent that frequents this forum.
thats creepy as hell!
I’m curious to know, do you top your grade with these little “assignments”? If not I would like to lodge a formal protest with your school.
thanks all for taking the time to listen to my shit! I appreciate it lots

unfortunetely I failed analogue studio class with this since, I didn’t keep to the original assignment and basically did my own thing, using sounds from patches out of the analogue studio as ingredients in my computer.
The fact I only showed up in class like 2 times this schoolyear didn’t help either, although the teacher found my result interesting. But I don’t mind doing this over next year, the studio is pretty cool and it’s not like I have to redo a year of maths or physics. You can get some great bass-noises out of the studio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Bea5.jpg)
Well take it from me, your grades are not reflective of the quality. Keep it all up mate, I enjoy your releases alot.
Nice experimental one, kind of scary.
Electroacoustics up in here. You got skills and talent for sure.
This is really great!
Those little tonal changes make it very creepy.
