Slowly We Falter is a side project started by Ember Music artist Scott Brown (Fake Empire) to delve into the experimental side of electronic music and sound design. It is also an opportunity to explore creative limitation, by restricting the instruments or software used for each project to inspire creative problem solving and a more minimalist approach.
“I always think that the best way to frustrate an artist is to give him absolute freedom. If you want to give artists some support, make rules about what they can’t do.” – Peter Gabriel
Each Slowly We Falter EP will be created within a set of limitations to see how far Scott can push himself musically and also to deepen his understanding of the equipment he is working with.
This music was created using NOD-E, a wonderful instrument made by Antonio Blanca.
The sounds you hear are randomly generated patterns created inside Reaktor (modular synthesis software) using various instruments connected to NOD-E.
This is the sound of machines at play.
