Brainiac Fingers

Following on from the UHE Diva series of recordings came this big mix - evolving and mutating out of a whole series of different rones and samples. Hope you enjoy it!




You Aitch EE

2018 storms in with a new batch of recordings: This time rounds, things are loosely gathered together under the unfiying theme of using the magnificent UHE Diva plug-in. Of course, that is how things started - but before you know it, all sorts of other instruments, devices and samples were joining in!


Happy New Ear!

Happy New Ear to All Our Readers!



All the very best to everyone in 2018!!

Straight Outta Dronesville

This was a long piece, originally inspired by a long ambient mix of various ethnic instruments, including duduk, shehnai and bagpipes the noo. This was then woven into a series of edited and modulated samples from two of my fave 70s German music pioneers - one named after Sleeping Oranges and the other being the opposite of Alt. And the result is hypnotic, mesmerising, but with a generous pinch of the Plankton Penchant for Unease thrown into the mix.

Aperture

Here we go again folks - round and round the merry go round of life, stopping off briefly once more with a new albums worth of  general derangement. This time it is a series of tracks and ideas based around the use of the Amazing Iris Soft Synth from Izotope - though of course, lots of plug-ins, toys, devices, samples and other audio chums came along for the ride. 

All photos for the tracks were taken during a recent break to the wild coast of Northumbria.

Enjoy!

Fade V Morph

A new mix here, based on big time use of the cross fade clips function in Audacity, as several published Conny Plankton tracks get the full treatment, evolving into something weird and wonderful. 

Should I add that it all came to me yet again in a dream?

Legacy of Summer

This Summer has been well active on the Conny Plankton front, with a whole series of themes and explorations based around using the rather excellent Korg Legacy Cell VST synth. 

The results became rather prolific with all sorts of ideas getting thrown around. 

Here we go again: Enjoy!
