Cluster (1997)

Rhythm-heavy tracks, drum machine techno with a bit of house and electro. Cluster, Vithwan, and Karthak are from my 1998 release on 1200 records; the others were recorded around in the same time in a similar style.

 

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.

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

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.
