Process notes –

This is comprised of three recordings assembled together on 13 Mar 2022
– a guitar from 12 Mar 2022, recorded by laying the guitar horizontally on a table and going at it with some metal rods, a glass slide, a plastic bar-thing called a “triller,” an ebow, a bent piece of flat metal and then via a MIMI Fuzz, a Joyo D-Seed II and an Ammoon Pock Loop.
– a “no-input” Behringer Xenyx 1202 mixer (fed back into itself) from 11 Mar 2022. Look for Sarah Belle Reid’s videos on the subject for more info on how that is done. That was my first time doing that.
– There are also some sliced bits from an older track, a 10 Mar 2012 guitar track where I used some of Live’s random MIDI capability to then trigger the slices.

As this type of guitar/noise recording has some roots in some of my own experiments from the early 90s on 4-track, I’ve tried to simulate that by *almost* not allowing more than 4 tracks to be playing at once, along with some tube/tape settings from Live’s native devices. As the track progresses, I mix in Live’s Echo device and Live’s Hybrid Reverb device. I then mastered this by using iZotope Ozone Elements.
