When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry , Seems to help, I know – downtown , Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city…
Or so Petula Clark sang many eons ago. When I get ‘lost in my circle’ I find that a bit of diversionary creativity helps retune my mind temporarily. I’m a great one for sonic doodling. I’m not much interested in making a ‘toon’ just making a self indulgent tone poem of sound bits somewhere between a soundtrack and an ambient segway. Anyway this was last nights diversionary twiddling which was really an entirely real time constructed effort (no multi track, no multiple tries). Load the samples, trigger on the fly and live with the result. It’s all very low tech and that’s the way (uh huh) I like it.
I can’t pretend that it’s anything but a sonic doodle but I enjoy the random process which usually leaves me with the feeling the the result had very little to do with me other than I chose the pallette , started the ball rolling and took my mind elsewhere for a bit. Ooh don’t you just love the many cul de sacs that technology can take you down.
By the way I loathe Jerusalem so don’t go putting any kind of personal interpretation on this.
