I did that one last night. Unwanted hiss and low level, a noisy arpeggiated XT (that synth is Shocked Cool Confused ..., a sample from the PBS documentary The New Americans, piano sample from an old movie (one note, don't remember which movie). Mostly it was an exercise at synchronising three different element at 100 bpm: the xt, the piano sequence and a slap delay (clicky sound) on the board.

They asked me, 'Where are you from?' I said Palestine, and they don’t understand where is Palestine. When I say Israel, they understand.

Nicholas, this is pretty interesting. It is certainly lofi and very simple, but it sets a mood and it is quite mysterious. That's not too different from your previous work. I like this kind of thing. Keep them coming...

This music is unnatural and scary. Is the lo-fi sound accidental? Because it really does work. Strange arrangement. Pianos, funny noises, then suddenly no piano. And then a minute later, hello again piano. Strange.

Can't deny it's spooky and atmospheric though.
