TCD1 - Weather Resonance Loops

by Trium Circulorum



"Weather Resonance Loops" is clearly a concept album. The idea behind it was to use a fieldrecording of a thunderstorm which i took from my kitchen window and loop four significant parts of each 3 minutes out of it.
These were used as raw sounds but also on another track played through a resonating filterbank.
Each of the four parts was then looped ten times so in the end there would be an overall length of thirty minutes per track.
These were recorded to the two sides of a 120 minutes cassette tape and replayed and sampled from another tape deck than was used for recording.
I call that one my "experimental tape deck" because the belts are quite loose, it has a pitch control and worn out heads. So if the room temperature is right it produces a nice phasing and wow/flutter. The playback/recording results were re-imported to the DAW and a straight techno beat from a kick drum sampled from my modular synth was added.
The kick is playing at 118bpm, so you maybe want to work out how often certain events would meet exactly with the kick drum (seen on 30 minutes, and neglecting the factor of a wonky playback...).

Surprisingly the results are intense and full of tension but also relaxing to listen to at the same time.

Anyway, enough of the concepts, I hope you enjoy this.

(A little hint - if you love it but don´t want to buy it here and now, a download code is included with the purchase of "Silent Surveillance" (tape version), available from Monday, January 18th. on
