The new year sees a new release of old material from Ember Music co-founder Kurt Lorenz. Isaz is a four track EP of experiments in sound, processed loops and field recordings. Most of these tracks were created between January and September 2009. The ep is available as a free download from Bandcamp.
Isaz – Track by Track
01. This is just my voice
This is just a looping, processed sample of me saying “this is just my voice”
Processed sample of a train running through Carkeek Park in Seattle, WAUSA. This track was recorded with an M-Audio MicroTrack II digital recorder using the standard t-microphone. I used Ableton Live 6 for processing through an Auto Filter, a Simple Delay and a Resonator.
This is the soundtrack to a memory. Flying in my fathers small plane from Buffalo. NY to Batavia, IL. when I was 6 years old. A mix of excitement and utter dread. I feel like I captured those feelings in this track.
Original Experimental Music/Sound (by Kurt Lorenz) made completely on the iPhone using BeatMaker, NLogSynth, and iGendyn. (Slo-Mo Vocalizations are from the videos audio track.) Each app was recorded directly into an audio channel in Ableton Live and some basic mixing/compression applied. This track is the soundtrack to an experimental film I created entitled “Eye” you can see the video below or here: www.vimeo.com/5243888
All sounds conceptualized, recorded, programmed and mixed by Kurt Lorenz between January and September 2009.
