Walkin' Out

This song combines three rare things for me: vocals I sang, lyrics I wrote, and layered melodies with pop-song structure. The basic song came together fairly quickly, but it took a while to finish the writing and get all the vocals recorded.

I Can’t Go For That (Perkowitz Mix)

A remix of the Hall & Oates classic. I had forgotten what a great groove it had at the beginning until I heard it at a wedding recently. So I had to extend out that groove and then do some chopping and filtering on the rest.

Time

A vocal song with lyrics and arrangement inspired by early New Order (working off of one of my favorite Sumner lines ever, “here I am in a house full of doors and no exits”). One of few songs I’ve ever written original lyrics for. Also by far the shortest song I’ve ever recorded, at a radio-friendly 3:32.

A long jam on 909, 808, 727, rx5, 303, x0xb0x, ea1, and some fx. It’s nice to completely cut loose from the computer sometimes. This could probably use an edit down to 6-8 minutes but here it is in raw epic form.

Sargeant Ridiculous (Perkowitz Truncates)

A remix of the Chaircrusher song. I basically took his complex, evolving sounds and cut them down to simple tech-house loops (hence “truncates”) and then grooved it out for eight minutes. That’s the Perkowitz way.

Two Legs Better

The thing I like best about this song is that twice (at 1:35 and 4:28), the song glitches as though the computer running it was about to crash. This was inspired by the fact that my computer would, in fact, crash while I was working on music. I had a good time reproducing the way it seemed to hang and stutter as a part of this song.

The vocoder noises in this one sounded to me like insects burrowing through things.

Imipolex G

Not much to this track but some squirrelly drum loops, a sine-ish bassline, and a high-pass-filter hook. Also, the irony is that I hate Pynchon.

Obvious

This track grew out of preparations for a live ambient show, where I and others would be trading off noises for several hours. While practicing and preparing some loops, I recorded this quick take.

Parataxis (Edit)

This is one of a series of tracks I did in 1997 where I just recorded a minimal techno thing for a very long time and figured I’d edit it later. Without the pressure to get the song structure right on the first pass, I was more relaxed and did some decent evolving minimal techno tracks.

Cluster

Another one of those tracks where I did a long recording and figured I’d edit it later. I eventually did edit down from 16+ minutes to the 11:30 or so that appeared on my record on 1200 Music. Cluster is definitely the best example of a certain aspect of my drum machine style — long, slowly changing, and pure rhythm.

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.

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.
