Hmm this is why I don't usually post on LJ because it just seems like I drop by and spam stuff, or moan privately ;-) I do read LJ though, and comment on occasion, I'm still here...but also know some of you aren't on FB/Twitter etc. which is fine, but means you miss stuff unless you follow Radio Clash. I do try not to duplicate...hence why I stopped posting podcasts here - still going, still being uploaded, but it seemed a little spammy!
But I've released (if that's the word) an album of experimental/horror type soundtrack live electronic music over at Bandcamp - think Radiophonic, Scanner, that sort of thing. I did it originally in 2000 and completely forgot about it, left it on a Minidisc. When Sony announced that MD was to be no more I thought 'uhoh' and dived into my old MDs to see what was there...I was pleasantly surprised. So much I decided to transfer the best bits and make a few albums out of them.
Kylie it isn't, and not for everyone - I tended to do a lot of experimental 'found sound' drone pieces and early live remixing on my PC at this period - but given all this hauntology shizzle and love for Radiophonic/Broadcast spooktronica/horror soundtrack and 'hypnagogic' music this strangely fits right in...I used to do a lot of sound pieces, experimental stuff, live stuff, remixes, cutups etc. but never release them...there wasn't the audience. Hence Reality Engine on Bandcamp, if one person gets it then the job's a good un.
So here's Transmissions 1: Forgotten Building - the 'Forgotten Theme' is surprisingly Kraftwerk/Boards of Canada like, which as I only dimly remember recording this I started to worry this was all a transfer from some IDM/Warp CD and not as labelled...the dropping into mono parts reassured me though...it does seem surprisingly listenable, I'm usually my own worst critic, so. But it's an unusual original work from me (they do exist, I should post a few of the more recent ones, although apart from the Acid Reign LP I've not created an 100% original piece for many years - part of the problem I have is I don't write in 4/4 or even normal structures as a non-muso, I come up with loops that tend to syncopate and off-time and evolve - that was an issue for the acid track for example, pulling it back into 4/4).
It's pay what you want for download - including nothing if you want...limited credits on my account though, so if suddenly if I get a hit *COUGH SPLUTTER YEAH RIGHT* those will expire...
P.S. The image dates before 2000, from around 1992 during my art degree I had fun creating light trails in the old house I was living in...this is a remixed 'spooky version' of the original you can see here - and some of the rest of the pictures, which were in part about 'the man on the top of the stairs' which I was scared off as a kid. Not there, or was he? I always ran down the stairs as a result, the landing spooked me.
