This is a new song I’ve written and worked on the last couple of months.
The workshop was all about performance possibilities with electronic music. So it didn’t go into technical detail about sounds and electronic music, but rather into creating a canvas that allows the musician to perform live with sounds that can be ‘endlessly’ tweaked. The theme of the week was relaxation and hypnotisation, and thus the goal was to prepare a performance that is ambient, hypnotising and relaxing.
During the LIFE/FORMS workshop of Tez, Desta and I created TardiSpaces, a live installation in which micro organisms are musical performers, and together with their microscopic image create an aesthetic experience of tardigrade spaces.

This video gives an atmospheric impression of experiments and presentations with this installation.

The song starts with perceiving perfection and thinking it’s great, then slowly evolves to not feeling human when seeing this perfection and ends with the unstable idea of do I need to show perfection? The main idea in this song is that perfection blocks your inner soul.

This music piece is still in progress. I am trying to create an unreal dreamy / nature like music experience. For this piece, I have been experimenting with sampling string sounds by playing on my guitar with a violin bow. Besides, I am also learning and exploring Ableton Live. I posted this piece on blend.io, a platform so that I can share my complete set of Ableton Live project files.
The YouTube Music Library is a good resource of free music. But when quickly trying to find a suitable track, I was slightly annoyed that the YouTube Music Library doesn’t allow you to scrub through the track. This forces me to listen to the whole intro. I wrote a small script that batch downloads all … Continue reading Batch Download Tracks from YouTube Music Library
