Track Info

Ok in this project I really kinda broke the rules :( .. its supposed to sound like a field recording but clearly doesn't! I sort of wanted to do musical foley. I wondered what it would be like if a Jazz trio played Macys. So I imitated the recording I made in Macys for last weeks Junto with Rhodes, Brush drums and Double Bass. It was mainly just programmed in Cubase by me listening to bars and imitating them, but I also did some unusual processing to imitate the general atmosphere of the store using pitchshifters and some of Michael Norris' Soundmagic Spectral AUs through DDMF Metaplugin. I have also posted a version which includes the original recording so you can hear the imitations more clearly : Jazzy Macys ( w original rec ) [disquiet0038-asrealasitgets2] by Dizzy Banjo -- This Disquiet Junto project was done in association with the exhibit As Real As It Gets, organized by Rob Walker at the gallery Apex Art in Manhattan (November 15 - December 22, 2012): More on this 37th Disquiet Junto project at:
