Art of Kaos and pleiades
I'm just gonna collate some of the old AoK stuff here, and keep this thread updated with any progress pleiades makes etc etc
Art of Kaos (May 2007-July 2008)
First of all I would like to mention that the audio mastering of a lot of the AoK pieces is quite exceptional. Exceptionally bad that is. We were both 16-17 and had very little idea about levels and mastering and things like that, anyway I hope it doesnt damage any hardware :S
Armavia 967 - A Journey to Extortion (Track 1 - A Gross Extortion of Noise)
I am currently starting work on a new album for pleaides, which is going to be a different process to whats gone on so far. I'm going to move away from the drone/noise side of things, more on that as it happens
I hope you enjoy some of the above, and any and all comments are appreciated.
Aha, best lookin waves eh? I can't even work out which ones that is.
The pipes/Theremin set was with a traditional/rock fusion band called YDK:Fusion, it was actually started before Art of Kaos, but it was made out of myself, my partner from AoK, and a fiddler.
So it was kinda inevitable that as AoK developed alongside the traditional group, the two would have to meet somewhere. The set was one of the last things we did as YDK:Fusion, and it was never done publicly cause when people wanted YDK:Fusion, they wanted traditional pipes/fiddles and rock drums, not psuedo-experimental theremin induced atonal...things.
As far as I know it was never recorded in a practice session either, although actually I might have to investigate that cause we often recorded our practices, it could be lying around somewhere.
As an aside, there is some chanter (the small recorder/whistle type thing pipers practice on when they dont want ASBOs for noise pollution) playing in Crematorium Rave, at around the 9minute mark. Well...maybe not chanter *playing*, strictly speaking, but a chanter was used, certainly.
I've been asked to do experimental stuff involving bagpipes directly by other people before,and its maybe something I will do at somepoint, I do have a CD i made in Spain where I just improvised whatever I wanted and these guys I was recording with turned it into an improvised jazz piece. Thats on CD so I would have to go get it from my parents house if you're interested. _________________ Love at first /whois
