Mike, it seems that a designated theme only shows up when I am logged in. I tend to view the forum logged out most of the time and then it defaults to 'The gray' theme.

cheers
Pete

Just a thought, the homepage is looking a tad austere currently  - small text / large everything else. It's better once you get into the threads, IMO.

Dave, seeing as you asked:

The source footage is of a stream flowing through pipes to create a lot of bubbles captured wityh my Sony RX100. I made the video in Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 13, using the Pixelan AnyFx plugin for colour alterations and the New Blue ST 'Shear energy' plugin for the effect. All slowed down - of course!

Feel free to do what you like with my track.
cheers.

I think this is a heady and hypnotic album, mature and subtle. The instrumentation is varied and balanced and the percussive elements blend very well overall. Production wise, it's very 'full' (in terms of spectral balance) and balanced.

Good stuff all round !

Cheers, I didn't know that, it seems to default to 3 plays.

‘Opaline’ and ‘IRIS’ new Igneous Flame dual album release

'IRIS' and 'Opaline' arose out of the same pool of material. On completion of the project, I realised that there was a distinction between the tracks that featured sections of percussion and 'formal' instrumentation, interspersed with more abstract tonal textures and those that were more continuous and beat-less. Hence the two separate albums.'

Dave,

You should ask your son to have a go as well - lots of sonic manglin' opportunities with the NI stuff !

Cheers fellers !

If anyone is interested, here's some notes on how the track was created:
I initially made a loop from Dave's recording and used that as the tempo in the DAW (FLStudio), I've not worked with a tempo of 110.2 before !. I used the vocoder FX section of Native Instruments 'Razor' synth (one of my faves), this created the vowel / formant sounds as well as the more traditional vocoded sounds. I also employed lots of spatial jiggery-pokery and time stretching as well.

I should perhaps say a few words about the Paul Stretch program. I think it's a brilliant program (I even paid the dev some money for it, years ago), but I find it's default setting is used in a lot of cases (hence the samey-ness of output). It's really quite deep and there's a lot of parameters to play with. It can sound pretty 'queasy' though, (in my view) and gives a particularly harsh sound with transients. I almost always use the 'stretch' as a starting point for further processing. By the way, any iOS users should check out 'Audiostretch' which is quite brill in a different way.

Anyway, cheers Dave !

Here's my offering 'Chthonic Cycles'

[soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/igneous-flame/chthonic-cycles[/soundcloud]

All the sounds were made from Dave's original recording. Much use of vocoding, time stretching and the ubiquitous Paul stretch (amongst other sonic fripperies) were employed.

Both cool pieces, mine's on it's way - I'm adding some more 'ambient detergent' before it's spin cycle.

Smashing, I shall have a go at this 're-mix competition' :)

I've pretty much just finished a mighty project, so I'II have the time to explore 'Live's superlative Sampler instrument with this drone.

You know what would be awesome? If some of the musicians on here took this, tweaked it a bit more, leading to the creation of some kind of bizarre Hypnos Forum track featuring Dave's dishwasher.

I think that's a great idea - Dave ?

I felt the original recording had a much better vibe to it :) Seriously, it was more interesting (to me), you have to watch that paul stretch thing, it can turn everything to 'brown' - as with paint mixing.
