This project right here was a cool one for me. For years and years and years I'd been making beats and songs in a studio setting where each track would be laid down one after another and it was starting to get old. I wanted to do something that felt a bit more fluid and had room for some improvisation. It was around this time I began to hear music in a new way. Taking what I'd learned from all the previous tracks I'd made, I set out to create a set I could mix together live. To make these, I created about 10 tracks in a week or two and using an APC 40 and Ableton Live I would push faders and twist knobs for about 30-45 minutes at a time attempting to mesh the tracks together and get that more alive feeling I was after. I wasn't exactly performing the music, but to assemble and disassemble each track one after another felt more authentic and fun than starring at a computer screen for hours on end (although there was definitely plenty of that done still). I did about 10 mixes until I buckled down and got a good version where I was really feeling it. After doing the 40 or so minute mix, I chopped out each song into its own individuality. I did very little editing and thats why the tracks kind of drag on a bit (in my opinion) and sometimes when it should be dropping, it doesn't quite. But whatever, I still enjoyed it and I bet someone out there will to. Another step along the 10,000 mile path.
