it’s a ps1 overworld theme and i have the bedroom door locked and it’s 2am and i’m stoned and concerned my parents might hear the playstation and knock the door to tell me to stop
when i startedi was dreaming of making music that doesn’t sound like the playstation 1, but here we are
like when elliott smith was like “if i could write happy music, i would. i wish i could”
except it’s “look if i could write ps3 music,”
bit wild this one; i had inner turmoil but now i’m cured.
i used to make music like this a lot, but it always felt really disjointed. i’ve learnt now that if you have a quickly rising sine wave in the bar before the change, (or
x---x---x-x-xxxx, in whatever way (you can have different instruments pass of parts to one another)) then it feels OK and pretty good. people just need warning that there is going to be change. they don’t need to know what is going to change, they just need to know that a change is coming.
a bought a compact cassette recorder.
the little box for the Sanyo TRC-1148 Compact Cassette Recorder
it’s a Sanyo TRC-1148.
mic port (jack)
ear port (jack)
voice-activated recording (you can arm the tape to record and have it not start rolling until it hears a loud enough sound)
a 3-digit tape counter
tape is warm
a tape of circus music “MUSIC FROM UNDER THE BIG TOP – The Circus All-Stars”. there is washi tape over the write-protect holes.
the seller didn’t mention there was circus music inside
the 3-digit tape counter reads 978
it’s a great album. if you wind to the end of the first side and reset the tape counter, then rewind until the counter reads 978, there is about 54 seconds of blank tape.
i’ve made this with the tape recorder and the OP-1:
the tape recorder and the op-1 (and the pocket operator k.o. and the a notebook and a pen and some gay headphones)
it’s good https://chee.snoot.club/music/song/pop-rocksmp3
