New Release from Fake Empire

Ember Music artist Fake Empire (Scott Brown) has released his latest EP Fracture, featuring five tracks of electronic, ambient, industrial, experimental beats via his Bandcamp page.

“A selection of tracks initially conceived for a live event at The Incubator. The songs developed into a fully fledged EP in it’s own right as a consistency of sound and vision began to form during post event recording sessions and arrangement.”
 Enjoy!

Red Panda Lab Particle – Review and Demo by Ember Music artist Scott Brown

Ember Music artist Scott Brown (Fake Empire, Slowly We Falter) has posted a review and demo of the Red Panda Lab Particle. He also talks about some of the uses/techniques he discovered using the Particle so far.

Particle is a granular delay / pitch shifting pedal. It chops your signal into small grains and then does various strange, trippy, robot things to it, using the techniques of granular synthesis in real time. Results range from radical pitch and delay modulation to shimmering repeats to stutter/glitch sounds.

The audio demos were created by running an Elektron Machinedrum into the particle. It works particularly well with drum tracks so I wanted to show some of it’s potential. The audio was recorded into Logic via a Saffire Pro 40 interface.

NEW RELEASE: Ember Music Chain Album

Ember Music Chain Album

We are very happy to announce the release of the Ember Music Chain Album. The album is available now via Bandcamp !

This album started with an idea. Give an artist some random samples to use in an original track. Samples are then taken from the first track and given to the second artist to use. Samples from the second track are given to the third artist… on and on down the chain. The artists were not told whose samples they received nor to whom their samples would go. The artists were also sent an image as inspiration.

The results are quite astounding.

Credits:
Tracks composed, performed and mixed by the respective artists.
Mastered by Bill Bendrot.
Album art/design by Kurt Lorenz.
Chain album logo concept by Scott Brown.
Album concept by Daniel J. Davis.

Release date: 14 April 2014
