Back in class

It feels so good to get back in the studio, creating sound environments in the Dance class setting.There is something about just firing up the Ableton dance class template and going for it. It is really great that I really don’t know where it is going to take me. Today it started with sine waves and field recordings, which all then came crashing together with some nice gated distortion. The one particular field recording of me walking in the leaves of a Northern Michigan forrest really lended it self to the destruction, you could almost not tell what was the sounds of leaves and what was the distortion! The template has taken me a couple of years to get it honed in to be an open enough starting point that I can really just get listening and creating.I do check back in with it, every six months or so, to re-evaluate, streamline and modify. There is a couple of things that are going to get changed now and I am extremely excited to spend this intensive time with it so I can keep getting more responsive and fluid with it.

Here is where we are now:
