Capsule

909, 808, microwave, and distortion: my standard lineup. This is probably the best example of that style of perkowitz music.

Tide

Tide

Another 808, 909, 303, microwave, distortion track. The 808 conga melody is over the top, but it’s named for the rising tide of effect noise as the track goes on.

Vithwan

Vithwan

The first of three recordings influenced by the mechanics of drum circles — dense with rhythms built from simple loops. This is the most driving of the three, and one of my favorite recordings.

Karthak

Karthak

The second “drum circle” track, with more of an electro influence and a bit more stripped down.

Attar

Attar

The third “drum circle” track. There wasn’t room for this one on the 1200 Music release, but it definitely goes with the others.
