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!

Touch

And now - another album's worth of sonic madness. A new series of tracks, loosely linked around the theme of being originated through different apps on an Ipad. Everything produced by hand - every sound generated by touch - with lost of help from lots of different devices of course!

Here we go again:


Another long ambient mix

Onward we go - now into a long ambient mix, being based on connecting three different sources of audio. What you have hear is an interconnecting mix of streams taken from sounds simulating a newborn baby from within the womb; sounds from within a church; a selection of didgeridoo sounds - all mixed and interwoven together into a totally new soundscape. Nothing else added or overdubbed.



Master of Lunacy

Hi folks:
Things have been well active on the creative front recently, with a bunch of new stuff now being unleashed. To get the ball a-rollin' here is a link to a new video - based around photographs taken by Conny Plankton, and with a track made specially for the video mix. Watch out folks - definitely not the kind of video you see every day. Don't forget to click on the video to see it full screen.




Enjoy!
