LORD DEPTH MIXED BY THE COWARD MIXED BY FARMER GLITCH

Wow. The Farmer's taken Lord Depth mixed by The Coward and retwisted it into uncanny new shapes...really digging the eeirie minimalism thing that he's got going on here, that slow, flat Sinewave pulse: I was listening to this in bright late May sunshine, but my hairs went up on end and I couldn't stop thinking of creaky attic cobwebs...

The Farmer's a pro, I'm tellin' ya. A veteran of a thousand Arts Council sound festivals and sonic installations. There's not much he couldn't mic up!

Check out: Lord Death Rave (FG Bulb Mix)

Does anyone fancy picking up the baton and running with this, maybe remixing the remix and turning this into some sort of on-going audio chain-letter? If we did get a chain running with this, I'd prob. put the mixes in sequence onto a CDr and send it out to regular readers, maybe. I was vaguely toying with getting a micro record-label going later this year, maybe this might be a cool place to start: a mini-project that some of you folks could join in with. Open to any genre/style of remix. Lemme know what you think...

Interesting (and only right) that there are prob. still faint, dying dwarf star traces of V/VM's "Death of Rave" project present in this as atom-thin slivers of 3rd-generation samples; it's almost as if his monumental 356 Project has taken on some new, on-going spectral half-life...

do a remix of the remix of the remix...? like chinese whispers. only cooler. i might have a crack at it, if i can dredge an ounce of creativity from my barren, withered husk of a soul...

Go for it, Nick, if you've got the time, energy and inclination! The sonic/remix chain-letter thing's been done before, but I'm thinking this might be the first blogocentric remix-chain...would be cool to get some of our blogging colleagues and neighbours involved and maybe document this in some way.

Anyone else who's interested, leave a message in the comments box...

Hi, Eli - how's it goin'?

Go for it, man! The more the merrier! Sounds like Gutterbreakz might be up for doing one...dunno who wants to do one first...we ought to form an orderly queue LOL!
Just take the version from Farmer Glitch's website and mix that...unless Nick's gonna do one first in the next few days?

If you do one, then post it on yr site (and I'll link to you)...and the next person in the chain takes it from there, and so on....if we get enough of these, I'll prob put them on a CDr and maybe do some art to go with it and send it out to my regulars maybe...would be good if each person mutates the name/title of the mix as well as the actual music itself, so that we're playing Chinese whispers with the name too....

Would also be good to get people who do non 'electronic' music too, so that the music goes thru some strange changes...would also be good to get some 'non-musicians' (I'm including myself in that bracket) involved, or people who've never 'remixed' anything before, or maybe even never done a musical thing before...could be fun to do this....nice to see it getting to Australia already on maybe only it's 3rd or 4th incarnation....would be nice to circumnavigate the globe a few times with this...

Excellent! Yeah, Gutta says he's tinkering with a mix right now....so, if you pick up his version when he posts it and use that as yer blasting off point....

Glad ya liked the mix ...

"Creaky attic cobwebs" - love it ... must admit I got a few complaints of it being too loud, dark and scary when I was laying it down - something to do with goving O-Glitch an early evening shock I suspect ...

Like the idea of this becoming a remix-chain-letter - look forward to seeing where this one heads ... nice one ..

at ever happened to this little project...?

I found my unfinished version lying around on the hard drive tonight. Frankly, I doubt it'll ever get finished cos i'm burnt out, baby. Here it is anyway...possibly the longest six and a half minutes of your life...
